WED 3/21: Games, Words, Music

Keeping it brief... Hey, if anyone had the $1 burger at McGreevey's yesterday, could you leave a comment?

(Wow, it's another nice day!)


WED 3/21 (and THUR 3/22)

8am to 8pm
Bruins & Celtics Championship Banners
at Salvation Army / Kroc Center Gym, 650 Dudley St, Boston (near Upham's Corner)

Since the NCAA Tournament is hitting the Garden tomorrow and Saturday, they moved all of the championship banners to a gym in Dorchester.

There isn't a nearby train station other than a commuter rail, but several buses from different Red & Orange Line stops will get you close.

WED 3/21

6pm to 8pm
Tali Hatuka, "Transformative Terrains: Choosing Places for Protest": Forum/Lectureat Room 485, Bldg 10, 222 Memorial Dr, Cambridge (MIT Campus)

Political dissent is examined through an urban design prism by an Israeli architect who studies this sort of thing.

WED 3/21

Jennifer Truesdale, "Get Paid To Sing": Book Release Party
at Johnny D's, 17 Holland St, Somerville (Davis Sq)

With the number of talent shows on TV, I think this is a good time in history for a book that gives advice to singers who want a professional career

Jennifer Truesdale is a singing coach with music industry experience, so people who believe in themselves might want to check this out. I'm guessing there may be some singing.

WED 3/21

"Test Pressing" w/ Amanda Dellevigne
at O'Brien's, 3 Harvard St, Allston

8pm -- Sign-up
9pm -- Performances
10:30pm -- Amanda Dellevigne
I like the idea of open-mics that also have a featured performer like this one. Perform or just hang out. It looks like Amanda is performing without the rest of Night Fruit.

WED 3/21

"Buck Hunter" Tournament
at Good Life, 28 Kingston St, Boston (Downtown Crossing)
FREE / 21+

With two Nintendo Wii stations and a casual atmosphere, people will try to shoot as many virtual animals as possible. A rum company may be sponsoring, so there could be a free sample before fun-hunting.

The best Buck Hunter will win dinner for two for the ground-level restaurant.

WED 3/21

Storyliars: "Fantasy"
at Milky Way Lounge/Bella Luna, 284 Amory St, Jamaica Plain (The Brewery Complex)

Funny people will probably tell funny stories that relate to the theme, and one of them is lying. The crowd then attempts to figure whose pants are "on fire".

WED 3/21 (and WED 3/28)

The Dennis Brennan Band
at Lizard Lounge/Cambridge Common, 1667 Mass Ave, Cambridge (between Harvard Sq & Porter Sq)
$7 advance / $10 at the door

Boston great Dennis Brennan & company are rocking every Wednesday in March. (Maybe April too.)

WED 3/21

Housse de Racket (11:30pm), Glass Teeth (10:30pm)
at TT the Bear's Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge (Central Sq)

Fans of French synth-pop will want to check out Housse De Racket. Boston's Glass Teeth is understandably a darker sort of musical entity.
