MON 10/4: Talk & Rock

Sorry for the delay. I was talking to the Feds in a totally informational situation.

There is a chocolate-related lecture at Harvard tonight, but it sounds like it will be tough to get in. It's not quite the same, but the curious can watch a live stream...


MON 10/4

"Business of Hip-Hop Symposium": Panel Discussion
at Berklee Performance Center, 136 Mass Ave, Boston (Back Bay)

Berklee annually hosts some music-industry executives to talk about the business side. Berklee's Hip-Hop of J Dilla Ensemble will perform to add some musical flavor to the evening.

It's open to the public so all MC's, DJ's, promoters, etc may be able to pick up some tips.

MON 10/4

Ethan Gilsdorf & Tony Pacitti, "Two Geeks Are Better Than One": Discussion
at Pandemonium Books & Games, 4 Pleasant St., Cambridge (Central Sq)

A reading/discussion of two geek memoirs -- one via gaming and the other via science fiction:

Ethan Gilsdorf, "Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks"
Tony Pacitti, "My Best Friend is a Wookiee"
I've attended a Gilsdorf reading before and it's far from boring. And how can you not love a book title that includes "Wookiee"?!?

The geek quotient will be high at this event so you'll either feel like you're not a lone -- or that you're way cooler than you thought...

"They'll be serving Mountain Dew and Doritos."

MON 10/4

Tim Kasher, Mike Fiore, Marc Pinansky
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$10 / 18+

Tim Kasher of Cursive and The Good Life is releasing a solo CD and has hit the road (it seems) with a band to get these songs into the world. An early gig review says that some Good Life songs were performed and a Cursive tune was attempted. Take a shot for some good music you may or may not already know.

The most excellent Mike Fiore and Marc Pinansky will open with a couple solo sets.

MON 10/4

Horsehands (Midnight), The High Seas (11:15pm), Hex Map (10:15pm), Bonezone (9:45pm)
at Charlies Kitchen, 10 Eliot St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)
$5 / 21

I had to list this gig because of the awesome flyer (above). Get ready for some brain-splattering, arty, punky indie-rock in several different hues that might make you feel like the gig's image.
