MON 5/9: Art, Talk, Music

I'm really disappointed that my suggestions for the weekend didn't go up, because there was a bunch of cool things happening. Weekend cheapness will definitely be posted early this week.


MON 5/9 (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

I went to the exhibit and loved it. If you've ever loved one of Edward Gorey's book's or just have been amused byt the opening to PBS's "Mystery!", you'll enjoy seeing the detail of his drawings as his bizarre sense of humor.

MON 5/9

"Earthquakes, Tsunamis, and Nuclear Power": Faculty Speaker Series
at Harvard Allston Education Portal, 175 North Harvard St, Allston

Professor John H. Shaw (Chair, Earth & Planetary Sciences) will share his natural hazards and energy resources to explain the situation that happened in Japan (and the state of other sites).

"Please RSVP by phone at 617-496-5022 or e-mail."

"Free parking is available at 219 Western Avenue, adjacent to the Ed Portal."

MON 5/9

The White Buffalo (10:10pm), Marc Pinansky (9:20pm), Jake Hill (8:30pm)
at TT the Bear's Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge (Central Sq)

Some really wonderful folky, rootsy music will be heard. I was deeply impressed from the first time I heard The White Buffalo, and it still resonates with me. Marc Pinansky is one of our awesome local guys of rock who does the solo acoustic thing really well.

MON 5/9

Indignant Senility, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Work/Death , George Myers
at O'Brien's, 3 Harvard St, Allston
$8 / 18+

I'm not sure I want to see Indignant Senility's show, but I have to respect his ambition of sampling Wagner into something that's kinda weird. It's going to be a lot of experimental hipness going on including Keith Fullerton Whitman who is rather well-regarded.
