TUES 2/7: Film & Music, Etc

Elephant Wrecking Ball, at Church on Tuesdays in February
Today's best cheap bets are a film and music gig, but there are also a few talks today.

You can either listen to MIT's President speak about the school's 150th anniversary at the Boston Public Library (6pm) or hear a MIT neuroscience professor explain how our brain patterns determine our identity at the Harvard Book Store (7pm).

Artist Nicole Eisenman is speaking at BU about the psychological process in her work (6:30pm).

Or you can go to the MBTA Pubic Meeting in Lynn tonight...


As I mentioned last week, there's a pre-SXSW show at Great Scott on Wednesday 2/8 with a mystery lineup of local bands heading down to Austin next month.

It's $5 at the door, but the Converse store on Newbury Street still has about 30 to 40 free tickets to whoever wants them (limit 2 per person). Just give them your name and email address.


TUES 2/7

Thinking Big on a Small Budget: "Atomic Brain Invasion"
at Bright Screening Room, Paramount Theatre, 559 Washington St, Boston (Downtown Crossing)

Director Richard Marr-Griffin will attend the screening and will talk about how good movies can be made with a small budget.

The tongue-in-cheek homage to 50s sci-fi flicks played at the Boston Underground Film Festival last year, so you don't even have to pay by waiting 10 months...

TUES 2/7

Elephant Wrecking Ball, Cashed Fools, 3 Wheeled Fonk Cirkus
at Church, 69 Kilmarnock St, Boston (Fenway)
FREE / 21+

MySecretBoston continues to present free jammy/funky music on Tuesdays at Church.

Elephant Wrecking Ball is anchoring each week in February, and the trombonist from John Brown's Body leads this trio with spacey, heavily-processed horn playing for a dub-reggae vibe playing around jazz & funk.
