MON 3/26: Schmidt & Rock

Viva Viva, at SXSW this month
It looks like the New England Real Ale Exhibition won't qualify as a 'cheap thrill' in April. The first kick-off party has no cover charge, but it'll probably be crowded downstairs at Redbones (5pm to 7pm) as they will have a few casks available and free appetizers.


MON 3/26

Louis Begley, "Schmidt Steps Back": Reading
at Brookline Booksmith, 279 Harvard St, Brookline (Coolidge Corner)

The third novel in the "About Schmidt" has arrived, and the author is in town for a reading and booksigning.

MON 3/26

Viva Viva, Creaturos, Magic Magic
at Middlesex Lounge, 315 Mass Ave, Cambridge (near Central Sq)
$5 / 21+

As usual, a bunch of Boston bands went down to SXSW including Viva Viva. This could be the beginning of return shows. The awesomeness flows through the bill with Magic Magic (who went to Auston a couple years ago) and Creaturos (who might go next year).

MON 3/26

The Black Cheers, The Grinds, The Goddamn Draculas
at Charlie's Kitchen, 10 Eliot St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)
$5 / 21+

Go for the guaranteed garage-punk goodness of The Grinds, and stay for the other bands in the same alley with veteran players and cool names.
