THUR 8/6: This, That, This, That

What good does it do to complain about a "disabled train ahead"? Still, riding the T is a drag when it takes nearly an hour longer than usual...

Here's a list of pretty good cheapness.


THUR 8/6

5pm to 8pm
Neighborhood Nights: "Full Moon Rising"
at Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, 280 The Fenway, Boston (The Fens)

It's a nice treat to visit the Gardner Museum. This is the last of three nights where there is also music, dance, poetry, and activities.

Feat: Joe the Roving Magician, tarot card reader Kasey Robinsong, "Looking for Analog Love in a Digital World" by Bass-Line Motion and the Impulse Dance Company.

THUR 8/6

5pm to 7:30pm
"Woodstock 40th Anniversary Celebration"
at International Poster Gallery, 205 Newbury St, Boston (Back Bay)

As mentioned below, send an email and you may get in.

THUR 8/6

"The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare (abridged)"
at Christian Herter Park, 1175A Soldiers Field Road, Brighton (near Charles River, across from WBZ)

If you're not interested in watching just one play, this is short attention span Shakespeare.

Free Thursdays continue through 8/20 or you can pay Friday thru Monday.

THUR 8/6

Richard Russo, "That Old Cape Magic": Reading
at Porter Square Books, 25 White St, Cambridge (near Star Market)

Is Russo the second most famous novelist living in Maine...?

THUR 8/6

"The Comedy Of Errors"
at Parkman Bandstand, about 165 Tremont St, Boston (Boston Common)

Shakespeare with salsa poured all over. It's a comedy... It's clever... It's free, but a donation wouldn't hurt...

Shows run through SUN 8/16 from Tuesdays to Sundays -- 8pm on most nights, 7pm on Sundays. Additional performances on SUN 8/9 (1pm) and WED 8/12 (12:30pm).

THUR 8/6

Sprained Ankles (11pm), Black Mosettes (10pm), Hot Rod Fury (9pm), Corolla DeVille (8pm)
at Cantab Underground / Club Bohemia, 738 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)

Good fun punk/garage rock also happens to be the soundtrack for comic artist Frank Strom's "Birthday Bash".

THUR 8/6

The Divorced (Midnight), The Lights Out (11pm), This Blue Heaven (10pm), Aloud (9pm)
at TT the Bear's Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge (Central Sq)

The Lights Out and Aloud are two of the best kickass-catchy rock bands in town. Am not so excited about the other two.

THUR 8/6

Woods, Tony the Bookie Orchestra, The Skygreen Leopards
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$10 / 18+

Mmm, trippy psych-folk-rock.
