Sneak Peek: SUN 7/26

Hey, folks. I simply loathe myself when I decide to have fun on Friday night, sleep in, then decide to have more fun on Saturday... I will get my act together this week -- maybe even this weekend. You’ll see! Here are some quick tips.


SUN 7/26

Paul Muldoon, Poetry Reading
at East Lawn, Longfellow National Historic Site, 105 Brattle St, Cambridge (near Harvard Sq)

The Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and New Yorker poetry editor will probably be one of the most notable poetry readings in town this year.

And the Irishman appeared on The Colbert Report last month.

SUN 7/26

Boston Landmarks Orchestra, "The Story of Frederick Law Olmsted"
at Great Lawn, about 360 Jamaica Way, Jamaica Plain (Jamaica Pond)

Frederick Law Olmsted gave Boston its Emerald Necklace as well as other green spaces around town and national spots like Central Park, etc. Besides a little Haydn & Tchaikovsky, you’ll hear the world premiere of Thomas Oboe Lee's "The Story of Frederick Law Olmsted".

SUN 7/26

Brontosaur, Christians & Lions, Big Big Bucks, Allysen Callery & the Land of Nod
at Middle East - Upstairs, 472 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$8 / 18+

People should go to support the power of "Cheap Thrills". The guys from Brontosaur told me the cover is under $8 to attract readers like YOU. There’s a pretty good mix of bands: Brontosaur gives delightfully twisted indie-rock. They’ve got a new EP as do the slightly pysch, catchy folk Christians & Lions. It wouldn’t hurt to bring a few extra bucks to support local bands.

The Big Big Bucks rock it up, and Allysen Callery & the Land of Nod hopefully won’t make you nod off with acoustic gentleness.

SUN 7/26

Boston League Of Women Wrestlers, Alchemilla, Suit Of Hair, Giant Target
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$8 / 18+

Female wrestling and rock! There may be free BBQ around 4-ish...

My apologies to the occasionally hardcore Allysen Callery & Land of Nod...
