For those of us not currently in warm, supportive relationships, there are a few events starting tonight to help cure whatever aspect of love’s bitter truth ails you. First up – unvalentine’s day org – “song and stories of love lost, heart-break, break-ups, and the wreck love can leave you in.” An evening of festivities at Lizard Lounge, hosted by Jaggery’s Mali Sastri (they’ll be performing), and also featuring Lach, Trabants, Brian Carpenter & the Confessions, words by Edrie (of Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys), and stories by massmouth.

Welcome back to this weekly – or not so weekly – feature. This, or rather next week we have a few interesting things of note: A “Late-Night Fucking Cabaret” (yes, that’s exactly how it’s being billed) at OBERON, five Boston-area bands on one bill at the Middle East, Otis Grove’s CD Release Party at Lizard Lounge, and Cambridge-based wildfowl (that’s a band, not a bunch of birds) supporting a favorite L.A. band of mine who kinda snuck their way in…
For this edition, we’re starting the week on Sunday (today), since I forgot to mention tonight’s Bent Wit Cabaret show last time. Their theme is “Mystery,” and the performance will feature spoken word artist Jha D, magician Dezrah the Strange, burlesque by Penny Candy and Abby Normal, The System of Soothing (a 7 minute opera by Frank Pesci based on a story by Edgar Allen Poe), and much more. There’s The Boston Waterfront Performing Arts Festival at Christopher Columbus Park (in the North End) on Tuesday (8/10), featuring Sarah Borges and The Broken Singles and the New Collisions. On Thursday, Club D’Elf are playing at the Lizard Lounge. On Friday, there’s three things of note: Agent Bishop Presents The Lucky 13 Bash at Church of Boston; Goli Going East (members of Fluttr Effect) and Cabiria‘s CD release party; and Jo-Jo’s (who’s Jo-Jo?) Birthday Roast featuring John Powhida’s International Airport. On Saturday, Otis Grove plays a free show at the Middle East Corner, and “Boudoir Noir” – billed as “an intimate carnival of delight and revolt” – promises to be quite cool, what with The Slomski Brothers, What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? and HUMANWINE.
Marching boldly into my latest installment of “Boston Bands This Week”. We start with “a classic”, Mary Lou Lord, whom I must be recalling from the early 90s when I first moved to Boston. She’s doing a special acoustic performance on Wednesday at Arts at the Armory in Somerville, which will probably sell out if it hasn’t already. Then there’s a few very cool bands playing at P.A.’s Lounge on Friday, including a personal favorite, the wacky and wonderful John Powhida International Airport. Finally on Saturday, there’s a CD release party for someone who just recently came to my attention, Somerville-based singer-songwriter Danielle Doyle, who’s joined, once again, by some cool local bands – this time, in the acoustic, ambient, and Americana vein.
Yep, it’s Wednesday. Yes, the first show I’m mentioning is happening tonight. And yes, actually, it just started. Any other questions? Good, I thought not. A very cool line-up of prog rock and pretty folk/pop at T.T.’s, and lovely folk-rockers Black Marmot’s CD release party (again at T.T.’s)
tomorrow Saturday night. More Americana comes your way with Session Americana at Lizard Lounge Thursday & Friday, with notable performers (really notable) – check Lizard Lounge for important ticket info. And finishing up with HUMANWINE with Rob Potylo @ Center for the Arts At The Armory in Somerville on Saturday.
