I hope you’ll join me; tickets are just $25 and available here. More

How did you play when you were a child? Maybe you were one of the athletic kids, racing the other kids across the asphalt and inventing new games. Maybe you were curious and enterprising, concocting experiments with the condiments in your fridge. Maybe you spent those endless days getting lost in a box of crayons, or in the pages of a comic book. No matter how we chose to play as tykes, the pure joy we felt in doing so is something most of us continue to chase well into our adult lives. It never gets easier to let go of our everyday burdens and enjoy a simple game — in fact, it only seems to get harder year by year.

Barry Gibb comes to town this week. Luckily, you’re not a middle aged man and don’t have any old bell bottoms to dust off. Instead, there are some fine rock options all over town to weigh. More
I signed up for four sessions of Introduction to Burlesque at the Boston Academy of Burlesque Education (B.A.B.E.) with a limited understanding of what the art form really is, and I spent my commute from work to the studio wondering if my clothes were the kind of clothes I would enjoy taking off. What if I was terrible at it? What if I was great? I texted manic questions to my boyfriend, whose interest in my taking burlesque classes ranged from puzzlement to sarcasm. “Are you nervous or excited for old timey take-your-clothes-off class?” he asked. He also said, “Don’t pick Savannah as your stage name. You’ll sound like an old lady.” As we neared Allston, I replied, “Hope there isn’t a huge neon sign announcing Burlesque outside the place. I don’t want the people on the bus to know what I’m about to do. More
The four dudes that make up the local garage-rock outfit CreaturoS are no strangers to the Boston music circuit, having all played in a number of bands before joining forces for this one. Spawned out of the demise of the more psych-heavy band, Doomstar!, and a few other local acts, CreaturoS is an amalgamation of reverb-drenched riffs and heavy-hitting psychedelic explorations. They play fast. They play loud. And their tracks find strength in the jam-centric prowess of all (now four) guys playing together in the Boston music scene for quite some time now. More
Sure, you could waste the weekend watching 96 continuous hours of Super Bowl pregame coverage. Or, if you play your cards right, by Monday, you could be a theater-going, ukulele-playing, ’80s-dancing, chili connoisseur with a sweet beard. It’s up to you (do the second one). More
Hey, we made it to the last week of January! Only three more months of miserable, oppressive cold, then two weeks of spring when we’re all happy to live somewhere that “actually has seasons, you know?” followed by the miserable, oppressive heat of summer. Here’s some fun stuff to do this week instead of complaining about the weather. More
