WED 6/1: Science, Mob, Comedy, Music

We're being brief in hopes of getting the weekend cheapness available sooner...


WED 6/1

7pm to 9pm
Science in the News: "Origins and Applications of Pluripotent Stem Cells"
at Pfizer Auditorium Hall, Mallinckrodt Bldg, 12 Oxford St, Cambridge (Harvard campus)

In other parts of the country, people probably wish they can get into Harvard. For us, we can attend free lectures from world class researchers.

I almost didn't list this, then I asked what are pluripotent stem cells?

WED 6/1

Bobby Martini & Elayne Keratsis, "Citizen Somerville": Reading
at Porter Square Books, 25 White St, Cambridge (near Star Market)

This book looks at the Winter Hill gang before Whitey Bulger.

WED 6/1

7pm to 9pm
Horse's Mouth Comedy Show
at Middlesex Lounge, 315 Mass Ave, Cambridge (near Central Sq)
FREE / Donations Accepted

Feat: Ken Reid, Jenny Zigrino, Andrew Durso, Kate Ghiloni, Guitler Raphael, Rob Crean

If you're looking for a midweek laugh, this is good shot. Hosted by birthday girl Lillian DeVane.

WED 6/1

Hank and Cupcakes (10:30pm), Jeddo Stars (9:30pm), Lovewhip (9:30pm)
at Church, 69 Kilmarnock St, Boston (Fenway)
$10 / 18+

MySecretBoston is hosting a dance/rock party with a couple prime Boston acts and up-n-coming Brooklynites, Hank and Cupcakes.

Of their month's worth of Wednesday MSB gigs, I think this is the best one.

WED 6/1

Jeremy Gluck & "The Young Barracudas", The Barreracudas, Mother's Children, The Boyfriends
at Rosebud Bar & Grill (behind Diner), 381 Summer St, Somerville (Davis Sq)

There is more powerpop than should be allowed on a Wenesday night. On the top of the bill is Jeremy Gluck of classic British band, The Barracudas. They're so well-loved in some circles, you have a band like The Barreracudes from Atlanta who are obviously tipping their hat to the earlir group.

Gluck is using Montreal rockers Mother's Children as "The Young Barracudas", and they seem to be playing their own set as well. Boston's The Boyfriends are representing with power-popping gusto.
