TUES 6/26: Exercise & Music

The Tuesday dollar-burger at McGreevy's is more appetizing if you can win something. Of course they don't tell you how close they are to selling hamburger #5,000, but I assume it will be in the next couple weeks.

Keep in mind that it's 25 cents for cheese and an additional quarter if you want a tomato slice or lettuce (which I don't recommend). There are $3 PBR's at McGreevy's, so it's still a cheap meal.

Note: A commenter suggested a video game night at Good Life from 4pm to 10pm.


TUES 6/26

Ultimate Bootcamp Outdoor Workout
at Kennedy Greenway, about 54 Cross St, Boston (Haymerket/North End)
FREE w/ Registration

On one hand, it's a free hourlong workout with no obligation to sign up for more. On the other hand, you could show up to a rained-out fraction of a session.

I'm not sure if there is still room; registration is at the bottom of the page. Check-in begins at 5:30pm on the Greenway at the corner of Cross St & Hanover St.

"What to Bring: [...] comfortable athletic clothes, water and a positive attitude."

TUES 6/26

Cold Chocolate, Chasing Blue, The Loose Handle Band
at Sally O'Brien's, 335 Somerville Ave, Somerville (Union Sq)

If you walked around the Make Music Festival in Harvard Square at the right time a couple weeks ago, you would've heard two of the Cold Chocolate guys tearing through a set of bluegrass tunes. They seemed like good people too. This is their 3rd consecutive Tuesday at Sally's with different like-minded bands.

It’s likely that one of other bands will precede a short set by Cold Chocolate, then the other guest performs before CC goes on again through the end of the night.

TUES 6/26

Hotels & Highways, Mia Dyson, Zac Clark
at Lizard Lounge/Cambridge Common, 1667 Mass Ave, Cambridge (between Harvard Sq & Porter Sq)
$5 advance / $10 door

Hotels & Highways began as a collaboration between 3 singer-songwriters who got together and recorded a sweet, soul-satisfying record. Mia Dyson has been on the bill every week, because she's been playing bass with H&H, and they're backing her up for a set. Dyson and her husky voice has spent quite a bit of time in the Boston area over the years, but she's a bit of a big deal in her native Australia where she has won the equivalent of a Grammy.

Opener for the last H&H gig of the month Zac Clark rides down from Vermont with a bag full of melodic, keyboard-centric folk-rock.

TUES 6/26

Jerry Bergonzi & Phil Grenadier
at The Beehive, 541 Tremont St, Boston (South End)

Saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi and trumpeter Phil Grenadier are two world-class jazz musicians with Boston ties who have played together many times before. (I know at least once previously at the Beehive.) Tonight's rhythm section Will Slater and Karen Kocharyan have play together as well as performing with Bergonzi and Grenadier.
