MON 5/14: Music & Burlesque

If you're a regular bicyclist or have been mulling dusting off that two-wheeler in the basement/yard/bedroom, Bay State Bike Week has begun.

There many ride-related events through SUN 5/20 intended to inspire you to join the ever-growing pedaling population.


MON 5/14

The White Owls (8pm), Andrea Gillis Band (10pm)
at Toad, 1912 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Porter Sq)
FREE / 21+

Two great bar bands that go great together. Dennis Brennan captains a kick-ass team of players through blues classics and hidden gems. Andrea Gillis is the big, soulful voice in front of her punky bar-band.

MON 5/14

Underground Hip Hop Chronicles Pt. 3: "Ace Royal Flush Edition"
at Church, 69 Kilmarnock St, Boston (Fenway)
$10 /21+

Feat: Mark Merren, Pat G, Iyadonna, April Stanford, Notoriety, Ace Da Youngin, Ace Da Truth, Sir Locksley, Cathy Cathodic

It seems weeknight hip-hop has found a home at Church with frequent Monday night showcases with a variety of quality local MC's appearing. Why "Ace Royal Flush Edition"? Besides a couple guys with 'Ace' in their name, I wouldn't be surprised if others claim to be the real ace hip-hopper.

MON 5/14

Rogue Burlesque Revue
at Middlesex Lounge, 315 Mass Ave, Cambridge (near Central Sq)
$5 / 21+

It might be worth a shot when the hilarious Mehran is hosting and a didgeridoo player (?) is going to perform beside the ladies disrobing with some panache.

MON 5/14

Gentleman Jesse and His Men, The Barreracudas, Earthquake Party!
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston

It's a double shot of Atlanta garage-rock/powerpop with Gentleman Jesse & His Men and The Barreracudas. They're joined by the splendid Boston noisiness of Earthquake Party.
