Keeping it short before it gets later.
The weather is looking good, so think about getting on your bicycle and join in on Bay State Bike Week fun.
Nova Presents: "Robo Cafe" w/ Dr. Sonia Chernova
at Middlesex Lounge, 315 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
Science by the Pint: "Human Microbiome" w/ Dr. Eric Alm
at Tavern on the Square, 1815 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Porter Sq)
If I were going to absorb some scientific knowledge tonight, I'd probably go to Middlesex Lounge:
1) Robots are cooler than bacteria in your body.
2) Nova's Science Cafe is usually more of a presentation versus mingling with scientists.
3) Most people won't be eating while you hang out.
"Bernie": Preview Screening
at Kendall Square Cinema, One Kendall Square, Cambridge
FREE w/ PDF Pass
Even if the early reports had not been positive about Jack Black's surprisingly good performance as a murderous mortician -- based on a true story -- I would give the benefit of doubt to director Richard Linklater.
The guy who made "Slacker", "Dazed and Confused", "Before Sunrise", etc always has the chance to direct a sleeping winner.
Print out the pass for two people and get there early, because seating is not guaranteed.
Kristen Ford Band
at Sally O'Brien's, 335 Somerville Ave, Somerville (Union Sq)
at Precinct, 70 Union Sq, Somerville (Union Sq)
If I were going to rock out in Union Square tonight, I really don't know where I'd go. I might hit both clubs since they're a short walk away and it's free.
Whether you like your rock a little bit folky (Kristen Ford) or a little bit indie/pop (The Honors), Union Square is a good place to be on Tuesday nights for free music for the near future. It looks like The Honors might wrap up their Tuesday night residency at the end of the month.
Someone will probably be playing at Bull McCabe's too.
The Effective Dose, Dub Down Crew
at Church, 69 Kilmarnock St, Boston (Fenway)
FREE / 21+
Tuesday night music continues to be presented by MySecretBoston if you're in the mood for funky jam-rock and reggae.
