4/2: Monday Briefly

No need to think about the weekend. Mondays can be fun-days...

Just a few blocks apart in Cambridge, there are two discussions that appeal to different crowds: Education and NFL professionals discuss how gridiron analytical methods could be applied to classrooms. And a former Federal Reserve Chairman will chat with a law professor and a business professor.

The BPL is celebrating Shakespeare's birthday this month beginning with Laurence Olivier's 1948 version of "Hamlet" which may seem long and slow to some, but it's a touchstone for other actors who portray the Danish prince.

A live play in Davis Square promises to be a stimulating post-modern comedy that questions the experience of seeing a play, and tonight is "Pay-what-you-can Night" before the final 3 performances this weekend.

The Rock 'n' Roll Rumble is back, and preliminary-round gigs are going down at TT's this week except for Wednesday. Catch a couple bands you already like and/or find some new favorites like tonight's strong lineup including Thick Shakes and Animal Talk.

If you prefer continuity over variety, you can catch the garage-punk antix of Hunx and a couple other bands at Great Scott.

It hasn't been around as long as the Rumble, but Boston's annual electronic music festival Together could run for the foreseeable future. It's more than music, and there are many events from now through Sunday that fall between $10 and free.
