TUES 9/28: Film, Words, Rock

As I mentioned on Friday, I don't think there really is guaranteed entry to the Futureheads/Wandas show at the Lansdowne Pub tonight. However it looks like they are still accepting RSVP's. It makes me assume that it may be a first-come, first-serve basis.

You might also try signing up for tomorrow's A Silent Film/The Luxury as part of WFNX's Disorientation Week of free shows.

If you're meeting someone for drinks downtown, I got an email from Jacob Wirth saying they're celebrating Oktoberfest from 6pm to 8pm with some beer samples and the promise of potential prizes like tix to Harpoon Oktoberfest and other giveaways. It's always a good option, IMHO...


TUES 9/28

"Good Will Hunting"
at Rabb Lecture Hall, Boston Public Library, 700 Boylston St, Boston (Copley Sq)

This was on TV a few days ago, and I watched the second half. Darnit, I do like this move. Definitely a good choice for BPL's "Made in Mass" series.

"So You Want to Be A Writer?": Panel Discussion
at Porter Square Books, 25 White St, Cambridge (near Star Market)

Feat: Ethan Gilsdorf, Jill McDonough, Michelle Hoover

Moderated by Grub Street's artistic director, Christopher Castellani

Three writers of different genres are there to share their knowledge with interested writers and give a sample of their work.

Charles Yu, "How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe": Reading
at Brookline Booksmith, 279 Harvard St, Brookline (Coolidge Corner)

Hey, I'm a fan of humorous time-travel fiction.

"Tapestries Of Hope"
at Kendall Square Cinema, One Kendall Square, Cambridge
$10 / $8 children & seniors

This documentary looks terribly depressing, but it's terrible to think that thousands of young women are being raped in Zimbabwe because men think it will cure HIV/AIDS.

TUES 9/28

Screaming Females (11pm), The Libyans (10pm), Four Eyes (9:05pm)
at TT the Bear's Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge (Central Sq)

The touring band to catch is Screaming Females from NJ. It's cool rocky/punky thing with a diminutive female singer-guitarist who seems to have a Bieberish shag cut -- and she does have a good scream.

The Libyans also have a female lead singer and deliver a hard, punchy punk sound. With little estrogen in the band, Four Eyes still makes a cool, fuzzy noise that should appeal to GBV fans, etc.
