Hello, strangers. Slowly returning after being pummeled with various work duties and hot on the heels of a brief but beautiful holiday with The Airborne Toxic Event – and the magnificent Calder Quartet – (details of which should be appearing by the end of this weekend). For now, you can see my review of the inimitable Iggy and The Stooges at the House of Blues a few weeks ago – it’s up on Ryan’s Smashing Life, and as a prelude to my Airborne coverage, check out some video from the lovely Somerville Theatre on my YouTube channel (where you can find bucket loads of Airborne Tox videos and other really marvelous bands filmed over the past few years).
This weekend, there’s quite a few Boston bands of note performing all over the place. Tonight there’s an odd and interesting “BBCU Presents What’s Your Major 2 Comedy and Music Festival” at Church of Boston, featuring many cool local bands such as Kingsley Flood, Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling, and Ad Frank. Then there’s “music and a movie” at Cafe 939, with the premiere of the award-winning film The Why and Walter Sickert and the Army Of Broken Toys. Also on Saturday, Mighty Tiny are playing at the “Alice Vs. Wonderland Afterparty at the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge. On Sunday, Jaggery will be performing with Ember Schrag at the Whitehaus Gallery in JP [apparently it’s at a secret location, and you have to email The Whitehaus Family Record for more info]. And also on Sunday, the original lineup of Come plays at T.T.’s.share this:
