THUR 9/24: Music, College Art Night, Erotic Shorts

Feeling really busy, so it's brief today.


THUR 9/24

7pm to 9pm
Three Day Threshold
at Toad, 1912 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Porter Sq)
FREE / 21+

I guess this is "Kier's Birthday Party", so you know the "main 3DayT dude" and the rest of the rootsy rock band will be ready for a raucous time. I'm guessing the party will start well before 7pm...

Jen Kearney & The Lost Onion play at 10pm.

THUR 9/24

7pm to Midnight
College Night
at Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington Avenue, Boston (The Fens)
FREE with college ID

Feat: Love in Stockholm (8pm & 9:30pm), Liz Longley (8:30pm), dance party w/ DJ Ghostdad (10pm)

Are you a student (or do you still have your college ID)? Just in case you're not paying attention at school, I this this.

You might as well mooch some food and see some art & music before you blow off whatever you're supposed to do on Friday. More than 3,000 students showed up last year...

Free snacks by Qdoba & free Nantucket Nectars drinks from 8pm to 10pm. Free coffee for the Liz Longley experience from 8:30pm to 10pm.

Besides the permanent collection, several cool exhibits are up. If you go, you must experience "Seeing Songs".

There are two drawing sessions in different locations -- and a hula hooping party (?) from 8:15pm to 9:30pm.

THUR 9/24

"Love and Hunger": The Life and Music of Billie Holiday
at David Friend Recital Hall, 921 Boylston St, Boston (Berklee / Back Bay)

Reprise of April's performance of an original play for Beantown JazzFest. I didn't find any video or audio, but this should be good.

THUR 9/24

The Luxury, The New Collisions, Hot Protestants, Muy Cansado, Oranjuly
at Middle East - Downstairs, 480 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$10 / $7 with Student ID / 18+

A damn fine selection of local rock bands. I saw The Luxury on Saturday, and I like them a bit more every time. The band don't need me, because they wont the Rock 'n Roll Rumble last year among their many accolades. The New Collisions seem to be on the way up. Muy Cansado is a fave of mine, and Hot Protestants (good name) and Oranjuly could be on the way.

THUR 9/24 (& FRI 9/25)

7pm to 9pm
Erotic Film Festival Pre-Party
at Good Vibrations, 308A Harvard St, Brookline (Coolidge Corner, enter thru the "rear")

Annual Independent Erotic Film Festival
at Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline
$10 / 18+

Erotic shorts program -- as opposed to people sending in amateur scenes from their bedroom -- hosted by drag queen Kris Kineivil w/ sex educator Dr. Carol Queen, Ph.D.

I saw this PG-13 (maybe NSFW) trailer from the first year on YouTube. The Weekly Dig interviewed one of the organizers this week.

Encore screening probably with less fanfare on FRI 9/25 (midnight).
