MON 10/1: Talk & Rock

Ah, well, it's one of those days that leans heavily on Cambridge. I promise the rest of town -- including Boston proper -- is represented as the week goes on. The calendar will be updated tonight.

Oh, I meant to include the Manhattan Short Film Festival that's playing at the Coolidge Corner Theatre today through THUR 10/4...


MON 10/1

Jill Lepore, "The Story of America: Essays on Origins": Discussion
at Harvard Book Store, 1256 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

Of course you would expect to a Harvard history professor to know her stuff. I find the articles and book excerpts to be so well-written, and she has an eye for interesting topics for the lay person (like American origin stories).

MON 10/1

Science & Cooking Lecture Series
at Science Center, Hall C, 1 Oxford St, Cambridge (Harvard campus)

Feat: Fina Puigdevall & Pere Planagumà (Les Cols), Paco Perez (Miramar)

For the past few years, the great culinary minds of the world have shown up to speak to the students of the Science & Cooking course. It's difficult to say how much room is available for the general public, but we're invited to listen as well.

From what I can tell, tonight's Spanish chefs are on the forefront of locavorism and modern gastronomy at their respective restaurants.

MON 10/1

Skimask, Casanovas in Heat, No Sir I Won't, Beach Cops
at TT the Bear's Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$5 to $10 Sliding Scale / 18+

Weak Teeth, Natural Disasters, Luther, Choke Up, Luau
at Charlie's Kitchen, 10 Eliot St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)
$5 / 21+

Well, it's tough to pick between these two shows that are both jam-packed with young, noisy punk.

The TT's gig is also a release party for the October issue of Boston Counter Cultural Compass, if you want to handle the paper. Admission is on a sliding scale of what you can afford from $5 to $10, which is cool.

If you're into hearing bands from out of town, there'll be groups visiting from Kalamazoo, Philadelphia, and Providence at Charlie's.

For what it's worth, I probably spent more time listening to Casanovas in Heat than any of the others...
