SUN 2/8: Go Outside

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof Delusional Dinner Party For Big Daddy, by Angela Dufresne
Whoops, I forgot to post something for today... This might be the best day of the winter, so any fresh air would be a good idea.

Btw, human dog sledding is an awesome spectator sport!


SUN 2/8

10:30am to 4pm
Annual Quincy Lunar New Year Festival
at North Quincy High School Gym, 316 Hancock St, Quincy (near North Quincy T)

It's not too late to celebrate the Lunar New Year. (Year of the Ox!) Apparently, this usually gets a pretty big crowd. With the warm weather forecast it may not seem like a good idea to hang out in a gym, but it's available. All sorts of Asian food will be available... There's going to be music, dance, activities, and other various Asian culture to enjoy.

SUN 2/8

Eric Hofbauer & Garrison Fewell
at Rose Art Museum, 415 South St, Waltham (Brandeis campus)
$3 / FREE students, senior citizens, under-12 crowd

I regret that I never went to the Rose Museum even when I lived in Waltham. Plans were made on several occasions, but it didn't happen. With news of its possible closure, I had to list something. It's a great collection of modern art, and it'll be a shame if Brandeis sells it all.

There is live jazz in the museum on every 2nd Sunday of the month. Guitar duo Eric Hofbauer & Garrison Fewell will perform, and their collaboration incorporates Arabic & African elements.

The museum is open from noon to 5pm, and three exhibitions are running concurrently through SUN 4/5.

SUN 2/8

"Paganini Extravaganza"
at Williams Hall, 30 Gainsborough St, Boston (New England Conservatory / Fens)

It's widely agreed that Niccolo Paganini was one of the greatest violinists of all time. To demonstrate how awesome he was, Paganini composed 24 pieces known as the "Caprices" that each highlight a couple difficult playing techniques. All of them will be played with NEC violin students each handling one (or two).
