MON 2/14: Gorey & Music

Happy V-Day, folks. I don't get excited about this greeting-card holiday, but that doesn't mean can't enjoy special time with someone.

I did list a couple ideas last week that could be used any time.


MON 2/14 (thru FRI 6/3)

Various Times
"Elegant Enigmas: The Art of Edward Gorey"
at Boston Athenaeum, 10 1/2 Beacon St, Boston (Beacon Hill)
$5 Suggested Donation

MON & WED -- 9am to 8pm
TUES, THUR, FRI -- 9am to 5:30pm
SAT -- 9am to 4:30pm

This is one bit of quirky fun might not be too crowded tonight. I know there's quite a healthy goth scene around, so pale lovers dressed in all black might want to enjoy the dark wittiness of the Edward Gorey exhibit.

On the other hand, few may actually be aware of the Athenaeum that is practically hidden about a block away from the State House.

MON 2/14

"Big Night Out"
at The Burren, 247 Elm St, Somerville (Davis Sq)
$5 / 21+

Feat: Molly Zenobia, Allison Weiss, Kristen Ford Band, Mercedes, DJ Blaze

It's not a 'big night out' specifically because of V-Day. This is a monthly "Queer Friendly Live Music and Dance Party" that happens to fall on the 14th. All are welcome to listen to the folky and soulful performances, dance to the music, and have a good time.

MON 2/14

"Valentine's Day Cheap Date"
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$7 / 18+

Feat: Ted Billings, Emeen Z, Eldridge Rodriguez, Noel Kelly, Mike Fiore, Ryan Lee Crosby

I assume that these guys who mainly play in full bands are going to be relatively quiet and maybe even romantic. There are so many love songs in the history of music, so everyone can fill their sets without any repeats...

Ryan Lee Crosby is doing one of those "cover song per day" projects, and he posted "My Funny Valentine" today.

MON 2/14

Triple Thick, Banditas, Volcano Kings, Sister Spaceman
at Charlie's Kitchen, 10 Eliot St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)
$5 / 21+

As usual, there's bunch of kick-ass rock at Charlies on Monday night. It looks like Triple Thick and Sister Spaceman will serve as garage-rock book-ends along with the rootsy, twangy indie-rock of Banditas and the instrumental swing of Volcano Kings.

MON 2/14

Mmoss, Andy Maher Candy Bar, Roland & Jane
at ZuZu!, 474 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
FREE / 21+

Like Charlie's Kitchen, Zuzu usually has cool live performances on Monday. Spend a little time with that special someone in a psychedelic saunter through the Summer of Love with Mmoss. I have to think that Andy Maher Candy Bar is a name that rhymes; still it's a tasty treat of lo-fi pop. Of course there's no web presence for Roland & Jane, because it's supposedly a new project by Jesse of Apollo Sunshine and Anna of Quilt.
