MON 6/2: "Seeing John Malkovich"

Malkovich graffiti in Shay's
To John Malkovich:

John, I saw you at the Dr. Dog show on Saturday so I assume you read my blog. Even though my girlfriend pointed at you when you walked into John Harvard's and I reached for my camera, I didn't take a picture of you -- and we didn't follow you or stare after you turned the corner. [Note: The performance was moved inside John Harvard's Brewhouse due to the threat of rain.]

Please don't be freaked out; it was our first time seeing you in Cambridge. I hope you like living here besides the occasionally over-eager fans -- but you're awesome, man! Really... one of the best actors of all time.


I don't have much to add today, except the first listing below is now $4.


MON 6/2

The Toothaches, Husband and Wife, Alexander The Great, Pray For Polanski
at O'Brien's, 3 Harvard St, Allston
$4 / 18+

This show was originally set at $3, but two of the bands are on tour from Bloomington, IN -- so we should chip in a bit for their gas costs... It's still a pretty good deal at $1 per band. Not bad for a Monday night of indie-pop. I think Pray For Polanski might go on first, and I dug their rockabilly vibe.

MON 6/2

The Murder, Faulty Conscience, The Designer Drugs
at Charlie's Kitchen, 10 Eliot St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

The Murder are a Boston-punk band with loads of swaggering attitude and catchy, in-your-face tunes. The other bands are in the same vein for music too loud for the venue, but Esquire magazine did name Charlie's Kitchen one of the top bars in the country...

MON 6/2

Anita Diamant & Jennifer Dundas, "The Taming of the Shrew": Discussion
at Stuart Street Playhouse, 200 Stuart St, Boston (Theatre District)

From the folks that bring us Free Shakespeare in the Common (FYI: "As You Like It" in '08), this is the first in a new series "Shakespeare Salons" that bring together writers and actors to talk about The Bard's various plays. We'll see how often this series is presented...
