Sneak Peek -- SAT 1/10

Apple Betty flyer
I broke Saturday and Sunday up, so you wouldn't have to wait as long for info.


SAT 1/10

at Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

Fritz Lang's silent masterpiece is most enjoyable for its stylish, art-deco version of the future that everyone probably expected 80 years ago. I recall trying very hard to appreciate the story of romance and class-warfare, but I didn't really get swept away.

The visuals are the attraction, so you might as well see on a big-screen for free... Thanks, Brattle and your "Elements Of Cinema" series!

Maybe the post screening discussion will add some insight -- or maybe you can talk about the influence of the movie or the crazy vision of "the future"...

SAT 1/10

3pm to 5pm-ish
No Pants! Subway Ride
Meet at Alewife T Station, approx 135 Alewife Brook Pkwy, Cambridge (Fresh Pond)

I mentioned this a couple days ago. Remember to wear underwear!

SAT 1/10

Sway, Jared Paul, Brian S. Ellis, Simone Beaubien, James Lindsay, James Caroline, Will Fisher
at Plough & Stars, 912 Mass. Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
FREE / 21+

From what I can tell, this is stacked with some of the best spoken-word / slam poets that perform around town will be here tonight. (I guess Wednesdays at the Cantab and Sundays at Lizard Lounge aren't enough!) Sway will book-end the happening with a short set at the beginning and a full set at the end.

SAT 1/10

Mark Lind & The Unloved, Death & Taxes, The Throwaways, Pinkerton Thugs, The Spoilers
at Harpers Ferry, 158 Brighton Ave, Allston
$5 / 18+

Wow. A super-solid punk rock show at Harpers Ferry for cheap!

SAT 1/10

Mars, Muck & The Mires, The Dirty Truckers
at Lizard Lounge/Cambridge Common, 1667 Mass Ave, Cambridge (between Harvard Sq & Porter Sq)
$10 / 21+

Pretty sweet line-up for garage rock and Americana.

SAT 1/10

Apple Betty (Midnight), Miss Fairchild (11:30pm), The Big Disappointments (10:30pm), The Quincunx (9:30pm)
at Middle East - Upstairs, 472 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$9 / 18+

Pretty sweet line-up. Apple Betty is celebrating their "CD Release", and they rip it up like classic good-time punk. Also good-time funky pop from Miss Fairchild, not exactly "good-time" psychobillyisms of The Big Disappointments, and sorta good-time indie-rockers The Quincunx.
