Okay, I'll be brief...
There may not be any space, but BCAE is still offering $12 single-session classes tonight and tomorrow. Not a bad price to get you acquainted with Photoshop, Illustrator, or chess...
6pm to 7:30pm
Ron Della Chiesa, "Radio My Way": Reading
at Stellina Restaurant, 47 Main St, Watertown (Watertown Sq)
Longtime Boston radio legend Ron Della Chiesa has released a book about his life and love of jazz and opera.
They, say, "Free apps; cash bar"
Radical Movie Night: "The Wind that Shakes the Barley"
at Lucy Parsons Center, 358A Centre St, Jamaica Plain
Director Ken Loach has more than a knack to link personal drama to social issues, and this is one of his best as we watch the fight for Irish independence in the '20s.
I assume there will be some post-film discussion.
7:30pm to 10:30pm
"Now For Something Completely Different": Part 2
at All Asia Bar, 334 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
FREE / 18+
Feat: Jesse Friedberg, Adrian Emberley, Lance Riley, Brian Burke, Aaron Shadwell, Nick Consone
When you mix singer-songwriters with Monty Python videos playing in the background, it may not be completely different. It should be good fun for free!
Red Abbey (11pm), Axemunkee (10pm), Today Junior (9pm)
at Church, 69 Kilmarnock St, Boston (Fenway)
$8 / 21+
An interesting mix of hard-driving, female-fronted hard rock from Red Abbey, the superb instrumental rock and guitar heroics of Axemunkee, and shift into indie-rock with Today Junior who don't really have links to their music, but there are YouTube clips like this one.
The Grateful Dread
at Lizard Lounge/Cambridge Common, 1667 Mass Ave, Cambridge (between Harvard Sq & Porter Sq)
$10 / 21+
A lot of people like reggae, and a lot of people like The Grateful Dead -- so this goes down as a clever idea whether you want to hear the musical love child or not.
Primordial Sounds: See Thru Band, Olden Yolk
at Middlesex Lounge, 315 Mass Ave, Cambridge (near Central Sq)
FREE / $5 Donation / 21+
When you have a beautiful flyer like that, why not check out two new, strange, trippy bands along with the usual psych/soul DJ's of pRIMORDIAL sOUNDS.
It's also free, but there's no harm in supporting the bands with a few bucks.
