It’s a long weekend for most, so it wouldn’t hurt to let the fun spill out into this week. Clearly the best kinds of fashion shows are underground fashion shows, so you might want to check that out. Also, if you missed Speedy Ortiz at our little block party last fall, you’re a doof, but now is your chance to catch the band again.
|1.||Jan. 20 – Future Boston Fashion Forward|
Future Boston teams up with Discover Roxbury and 19th Amendment to bring an underground local fashion showcase to the Discover Roxbury pop-up shop. Come help celebrate this exhibition of wearable art featuring designers that include Bless by Bless, Cookies, L.O.R. Fashion, and Lana Muse Designs. You may look underdressed in comparison, but that’s totally cool (3 p.m., free, all ages).
|2.||Jan. 20 – Royal Bangs at Middle East Upstairs|
Power-pop quartet Royal Bangs makes a trip to Cambridge from Knoxville, Tenn., on tour with California electropoppers Bad Suns to join a bodacious bill of locals that includes the surfy Allston quintet ABADABAD and shoegaze project Cult Fluorescent (8 p.m., $10, 18+).
|3.||Jan. 21 – Bastille Secret Show|
Didn’t score tickets to Monday night’s Bastille show at Royale? Well, you may remember back to the end of last summer when the British band played in the middle of Boston Common for a pop-up show. Now, RadioBDC is giving you the chance to experience another secret show with the band. See here on how to enter to win (afternoon, free, all ages).
|4.||Jan. 21 – Taste of Eastie|
Do people really call East Boston Eastie? It makes sense, just sounds weird, that’s all. Anyway, head to the Hilton at Logan Airport on Tuesday night and try different foods from almost 30 restaurants in East Boston. Eat local and be happy (6 p.m., $35, all ages).
|5.||Jan. 21 – Heat Wave Boston Bike Party|
An avid biker looks for any excuse to go out for a leisurely peddle. It’s summertime in Antarctica, which means that in Boston, a penguin-style celebratory ride is in order. Put on those Hawaiian shirts and sunglasses and meet at City Hall plaza for a group ride that includes hot chocolate at the start, and Harpoon-sponsored after party (7:30 p.m., free, all ages).
|6.||Jan. 21 – Los Campesinos! and Speedy Ortiz at The Paradise|
Western Mass. alt-rock favorites Speedy Ortiz has been out on the road with Welsh rockers Los Campesinos! and the two bands will now make a stop at The Paradise. 2013’s “Major Arcana” was a huge debut album for Speedy, and Los Campesinos! struck another goldmine with its latest “No Blues” (8 p.m., $20, 18+).
|7.||Jan. 22 – Waxahatchee at Great Scott|
Katie Crutchfield, also known as Waxahatchee, stunned with her sophomore LP “Cerulean Salt” early last year on Don Giovanni Records. She leads a bill that also includes Western Mass. punks Potty Mouth, sweet-voiced Ohio Rockers All Dogs, and Philly trio Cayetana (9 p.m., $12, 18+).
|8.||Jan. 22 – Boston Accents at Laugh Boston|
Boston Accents is a showcase of some of the best comedians Boston has to offer, from the tried and true vets to the painfully funny rookies. Come check it out at the new and trendy Laugh Boston (7:30 p.m., $10, 21+).
