THUR 9/1: Talk, Music, Comedy, Drama

Okay. The last couple descriptions are short, because I've got another appointment this morning.

On the bright side, there's cheapness through Sunday on the calendar.


THUR 9/1

"Reporting from a Transformed America: Echoes of 9/11": Panel Discussion
at JFK Jr Forum, Littauer Bldg, 79 JFK St, Cambridge (Harvard Kennedy School)

A conversation with:

- Dan Barry (Columnist, NY Times)
- Jim Dao (National Correspondent, NY Times)
- Laurie Goodstein (National Religion Correspondent, NY Times)
Moderator: Rick Berke (National Editor, NY Times)

Journalists from the New York Times discuss how their business changed after the 9/11 attacks. As I mentioned the other day, the public is welcome.

THUR 9/1

6pm to 8:30pm
Sierra Hull & Highway 111
at Institute for Contemporary Art, 100 Northern Ave, Boston (South Boston/Seaport)

Time is running out on the Harborwalk Sounds series (ends next Thursday). Even if you don't want to hear some fantastic country/bluegrass from Sierra Hull & Highway 111, the ICA is free every Thursday night anyway.

When I went a few weeks ago, I thoroughly enjoyed the exhibit "The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl" (ends MON 9/5), and non-record lovers will be amused by the various interpretations especially the video compilation by Taiyo Kimura who does the strangest things to records and album covers.

THUR 9/1

Awkward Compliment’s Comedy Night
at Somerville Theatre, 55 Davis Square, Somerville

Feat: Sean Wilkinson, Ann Marie King, Al Park

Who knew there was a comedy night at the Somerville Theatre?

A handful of graduates from the Improv Asylum Training Center invite other comedians for what they describe as a night of "Improv, sketch, stand-up, music", and of course the sell beer.

Might be worth a shot at this low cover, and the seats are comfortable...

THUR 9/1 (thru SUN 9/4)

"Waiting For Godot"
at Zack Box Theatre, Downstairs, 8 The Fenway, Boston (Boston Conservatory)
SUN 9/4 -- 2pm only
This existential play by Samuel Beckett is a sparse, minimalist tale where nothing much happens, so it would work fine in a relatively small basement theater.

It's not the feel-good hit of the summer, but who's expecting that on Labor Day weekend.

THUR 9/1

Humanwine (11:30pm), Bury Me Standing (10:15pm), You Won't (9:15pm)
at Lizard Lounge/Cambridge Common, 1667 Mass Ave, Cambridge (between Harvard Sq & Porter Sq)
$8 advance / $10 door / 21+

Folky, gypsy, weirdness -- and what seems like the first local Humanwine gig in a while.

THUR 9/1

Pile, Grass Is Green, Grandfather, Me You Us Them
at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston
$8 / 18+

Loud, math, noisy weirdness.
