Finally, a few straight days of sunshine in Boston, erasing the memory of ten gray ones and seemingly endless rains. I'm sitting outside on our little Allston deck, laptop in front of me, rays on my face... I'd nearly forgotten what this feels like. Look at me, writing about the weather. Riveting!
This is going to be a quick one, a brief look at the week ahead...
Tonight: Film School and Margot & the Nuclear So & So's squeeze into Allston's Great Scott. I'm guessing the only reason that tix are still available is that school's out for summer, but I'd show up early-ish if you're going to chance tickets at the door.
Also tonight, Metal Hearts at the Middle East in Cambridge, and like I said, if I hadn't just seen 'em, I'd be there instead.
And if not there, then next door at TTs to see Laura Veirs, Karl Blau, and Drew O'Doherty.
What's the deal with three good shows on the same Monday night!? Yeesh.
Tomorrow night the 23rd brings Stella & the State's Michael Ian Black to the Paradise. I'm still kinda miffed that Comedy Central didn't give Stella a second season, but at least you can grab existing episodes on iTunes.
Wednesday night is sure to be a special one at the Museum of Fine Arts when Rachel's take the stage with the Invert String Quartet.
Thursday evening I get a break from the music when I check out a preview screening of the third X-Men movie. To recap: Liked the first one, loved the second one (and it remains my favorite super-hero film), but my expectations for the third are dangerously low. I was raised on the various X-books, so it'd be nice to see myself proven wrong again, as I was with X2.
Friday it's back to the MFA for a sold-out set from Red House Painter / Sun Kil Moon-man Mark Kozelek and guitarist Phil Carney.
This week's live mp3 offering will be a little late, as I'm hoping to share up tonight's Film School / Margot show. It'll take some time to edit that one down, especially with everything else I've got going on, so muster up a little patience...
