TUES 7/15: Comedy, Garden Talk, Artsy-Music, Bluegrass (by a Ramone?!)

Tommy Ramone, bluegrass man?
Yeah... I thought I would cross the river on the Red Line this morning. The "disabled work equipment" on the Longfellow Bridge had other plans, and it took almost 2 hours from Davis Sq to JFK/UMass.

Here's an extra event for tonight. Tommy Ramone seems come through town about once a year with his bluegrass band, so you might want to check Uncle Monk at the Cantab...


TUES 7/15

The Rob Crean Show
w/ Micah Sherman, Ken Reid, The Glow
at O'Brien's, 3 Harvard St, Allston
$8 / 21+

It's a comedy show in the format of variety/talk show with sketches, interviews, performances, etc. Until this month, it seemed there was a theme to each show. Perhaps it's a surprise, but you'll definitely get comedy and music without a two-drink minimum that you find at many comedy clubs -- and no explicit "drink maximum"... Micah Sherman and Ken Reid are both very funny. The Glow sound pretty good too. You'll also probably see various members of the Anderson Comedy troupe tonight.

From the Weekly List:

TUES 7/15

6pm to 9pm
Feat: Milo Jones, Visitations, Life Partners, and David Bernabo
at Mills Gallery, Boston Center for the Arts, 539 Tremont St, Boston (South End)
$3.33 / All Ages

TUES 7/15

7 pm
Wendy Johnson, "Gardening at the Dragon's Gate": Reading
at Porter Square Books, 25 White St, Cambridge (near Star Market)

Organic farming icon Wendy Johnson has written a book about her life and her work, which should be an interesting talk for people interested in sustainable agriculture with a side of Zen meditation. I have a feeling that she doesn't often travel from her Northern California farm.

TUES 7/15

Bluegrass Pickin' Party
Feat: Uncle Monk (8pm), Boston Perfect 10's (10pm)
at Cantab Lounge, 738 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$5 Voluntary Donation

Dude, it's Tommy from The Ramones! The original drummer of one of the most influential bands in rock now sings and plays mandolin in alt-country/bluegrass duo, Uncle Monk. You gotta give the $5 to support a Ramone... The Boston Perfect 10's are group of local hotshots that play in other bands.
