THUR 5/27

Man, that was a tough loss for the Celtics last night... Am not feeling verbose today.


THUR 5/27

Trampled by Turtles, Poverty Line Old Time Band, Spitzer Space Telescope
at Middle East - Upstairs, 472 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$10 / 18+

A sorta bluegrass band comes to town from Minnesota and plays with a local group that sorta plays bluegrass, and they're joined by an exuberant folksinger.

THUR 5/27

8pm to 10pm
Brendan Boogie w/ Township, Henry Beguiristain
at Arts at The Armory Cafe, 191 Highland Ave, Somerville (Spring Hill)
$7 / All Ages

This is the last night of Brendan Boogie's May residency where he not only invited top-notch performers every Thursday, he also wrote a new song with each of them that links the first set to his middle part. The torch-song is then passed from Brendan to the third act.

I have a feeling that this is one of the few times where you'll see an acoustic version of Township even though Marc Pinansky has been known to play solo shows here and there. I think Aloud is a great band too, so Henry Beguiristain's set should include some quality tunes.

A bunch of videos from the first two weeks are on YouTube.

THUR 5/27

Miss Fairchild (Midnight), Hello Ninja (11pm), Pray For Polanski (10pm), Leaders Led (9pm)
at TT the Bear's Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge (Central Sq)

This is a promising notion with a couple of fun rock bands like Hello Ninja and Pray For Polanski along with the good-time blue-eyed funkiness of Miss Fairchild.

THUR 5/27

Movers & Shakers, The Wrong Reasons, Jeff DaRosa
at Plough & Stars, 912 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
FREE / 21+

It's also the end of the Movers & Shakers residency, so there's no reason to miss some great free music if you're out late in Cambridge tonight. Unless the place is full or you're under 21...

Back in the day before they had so many positive reviews from better-known sources they had this little bit from CTB on their MySpace:

Movers & Shakers don't offer sugar with their strong, steaming cup of rock; but they stir in a lot of heart and grit and decades of American music. (I wish I were in this band.)
They're joined by alt-country dudes, the Wrong Reasons, and singer-songwriterish dude, Jeff DaRosa.
