WED 5/23: Slurpees, Talk, Film, Music

The CTB Calendar has stuff through Saturday.

Being brief today. Happy humpday!


WED 5/23

11am to 7pm
"SlurpFree" Day
at participating 7-Eleven stores

Like I said earlier, you don't have to try the new sugar-free mango slurpee. Just grab a little frozen treat, and don't drink it too fast.

WED 5/23

"Using Colony & State Records to Trace Your Native American Ancestors in Massachusetts"
at Orientation Room, Boston Public Library, 700 Boylston St, Boston (Copley Sq)

Cheryll Toney Holley of PastTense Genealogy will give you some pointers to trace your Native American roots in Massachusetts.

The big question: Will Elizabeth Warren show up?

WED 5/23

Radical Film Night: "We Still Live Here / As Nutyauean"
at Lucy Parsons Center, 358A Centre St, Jamaica Plain

Let's keep the Native American ball rolling with a documentary presented by the Boston Interpreters Collective. It's about a Wampanoag woman, Jessie Little Doe Baird, has revived their previously 'extinct' language.

WED 5/23

The Minor Three, Tilt-A-Whirl, Ruby Fox
at Middle East - Upstairs, 472 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$10 / 18+

Two rocking' trios and a singer-songwriter.

WED 5/23

Banditas, Bunny's a Swine, Cathy Cathodic, Big Digits
at Precinct, 70 Union Sq, Somerville (Union Sq)

It's a mix of two cool indie-rock bands and a couple of fun underground hip-hop acts. Whoop it up as Banditas and Bunny's a Swine are heading on the road to Florida and back.

WED 5/23

Bri Arden (11:30pm), Mieka Pauley (10:30pm), Jon Berman (9:30pm)
at TT the Bear's Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$10 / 18+

Two singer-songwriters and a saxophonist. (I assume he's playing with a band.) Mieka Pauley is pretty awesome, so weigh that against the potential sax instrumentals.

WED 5/23

Ghostwriter, Rob Potylo, Swamp Bear
at Plough & Stars, 912 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)

It seems like Ghostwriter (from Portland, OR) and Swamp Bear may have similar influences in a modern, noir bluesy approach. Who knows what Rob Potylo will do, but he's usually intense and edgy in his creative endeavors.
