MON 10/5: Talk, Rock, Classical

Wild Light, free at Lansdowne Pub tonight
Yep, yep, yep.

Not a bad variety tonight...


MON 10/5

"Afghanistan Revisited"
at First Parish Church, 3 Church St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

Andrew Bacevich (BU professor, former soldier, critic of US foreicn policy since the Iraq Invasion) and Charles Sennott (journalist, "Global Post" founder) discuss the conflict getting more and more attention these days.

MON 10/5

7pm (doors open)
WFNX Disorientation Week
Feat: Wild Light, Dearly Beloved
at Lansdowne Pub, 9 Lansdowne St, Boston
FREE w/ RSVP / 21+

There are free WFNX shows at Lansdowne Pub through Friday, but tonight's show looks like a really good night (as well as Matt & Kim on WED 10/7 and Black Joe Lewis / White Rabbits on FRI 10/9.

Beside's Wild Light's solid rock from the Granite State, Dearly Beloved is a rather strong band from Toronto.

You can still RSVP; the sooner you get there, the better your chances of getting in before they fill it up.

MON 10/5

7pm to 9pm
Four Stories: "Conspicuous Consumption: Stories of eating, shopping, spending, taking"
at Enormous Room, 567 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)

Feat: Erica Ferencik, Ru Freeman, Tracy McArdle, Amy Yelin

Four women telling tales of eating, shopping, spending, taking? There may be a bit of humor in these readings.

It's not hard for the Enormous Room, but the couches are very comfortable. Audience participation is encouraged (when appropriate). Someone wins a free drink every for asking the best question.

MON 10/5

First Monday
at Jordan Hall, 30 Gainsborough St, Boston (New England Conservatory/Fenway)

The "First Monday" series is celebrating its 25th anniversary of some of the best free classical music as top-notch musicians associated with NEC deliver first-class chamber performances.

The program to begin the season:

Giovanni Gabrieli -- antiphonal brass fanfares
J.S. Bach -- "Wedding Cantata "Weichet nur, betrübte Schatten" BWV 202"
Mozart -- "Quintet in g-minor K. 516"
MON 10/5

Jinx Brothers, Port Charles Quintet, Civil Warblers
at Charlie's Kitchen, 10 Eliot St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)
$5 / 21+

It should be a fun night. The Jinx Brothers are an acoustic duo that lovingly play early country-blues. It's supposedly the first show for Port Charles Quintet, a four-member group of local rock stalwarts including the singer and drummer of one of my favorite classic Boston bands, The Prime Movers. And Civil Warblers (members of Bread & Roses, Serious Geniuses, The Alrighters, and Darkbuster)will likely be a punky cacophony.
