SUN 1/30: Art, Musical, Classical, Indie

I don't know if it was sunny enough yesterday for MIThenge, but it could be today...


SUN 1/30

Noon to 5pm
Drawing Marathon #10
at Mobius Art Space, 725 Harrison Ave, Boston (South End)
$10 Donation

So how do you get people to watch your performance art? Perhaps one way is to invite them to draw during the performances.

Instead of the usual models sitting still, your subjects will be performance artists will be doing their thing that could be music, movement, etc.

Bring your art stuff, and stay as long as like... Feel free to bring water and snacks.

You can watch videos of past "subjects".

SUN 1/30

Gilbert & Sullivan Reunion Mashup
at Stratton Student Center, Room 491, 84 Mass Ave, Cambridge (MIT campus)
Donations suggested

Even a Gilbert & Sullivan production can pique my interest if one doesn't have to sit through a whole story. Hopefully the best bits have been strung together with some original dialogue and lyrics.

"Coffee and desserts will be served. A small donation is suggested."

SUN 1/30

Pappoutsakis 31st Annual Flute Competition
at Williams Hall, 30 Gainsborough St, Boston (New England Conservatory/Fenway)

Each of the 4 finalists will play the same two pieces. I wonder how much difference there will be between the competitors. Perhaps the anticipation for a crash-and-burn flautist is the fun...

(Apparently Williams Hall is n the same building as Jordan Hall.)

SUN 1/30

Banditas, Waking Lights, Bunny's A Swine, Mr. Sister
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$8 / 18+

I like all 4 of these bands are pretty darn good, and this wouldn't be a bad way the cap the weekend at all.

Personally, I plan to be at the free showing of Thank You For Not Breeding at MIT.

Good thing! A cloud got in the way right before sunset and kiboshed the effect... :-(
