TONIGHT!

Saturday, January 14 I ST. HELENA, MARC PINANSKY, BLACK FORTRESS OF OPIUM and THE FATAL FLAW Cheap Thrills Boston said this about headling St. Helena: “Go ahead and love St Helena. This is some gorgeous playing on brilliantly written (and thoroughly depressing) songs. I listened to “Oh Jane” over and over; it’s as if they took the chassis from Springsteen’s “Hungry Heart” and gave it a superior engine, body, and paint job.” Opener Marc Pinansky is the brilliant lead vocalist and guitarist for the rock band Township in a (somewhat) rare solo acoustic performance. Northeast Performer Magazine recently said this of Black Fortress of Opium: “Intensity and dark regality dominant feelings of haunting, other-worldliness and mystique. Black Fortress of Opium truly makes you believe that you just may be listening to something highly monumental.” Boston’s The Fatal Flaw have been gaining momentum with a playful juxtaposition of biting cynicism and shameless pop sensibility earning them distinction as a “Band Worth Watching.” Read the rest of this entry »

Friday, January 6I Copenhagen by Michael Frayn  In the fall of 1941, German atomic scientist Werner Heisenberg paid a visit to his mentor, Niels Bohr, “the father of modern nuclear physics,” in Nazi-occupied Denmark. The subject of their conversation, and its impact on subsequent scientific, military, and world history, has been debated all the decades since — did Heisenberg warn Bohr about the German nuclear program, or pry for information about the potential of an Allied atomic bomb? Did he earnestly try to prevent the destructive potential of the split nucleus, or was he himself too fragmented to know his own motives, let alone their outcomes? Did Bohr panic needlessly, misunderstanding Heisenberg’s intentions, or did he understand them all too well? Copenhagen reunites Bohr, Heisenberg, and Bohr’s wife Margarethe, long after all is over and done, to retrace the paths of memory, physics, loyalty and politics surrounding that inscrutable visit, and try once again to illuminate the limits of what can be understood about the universe, and the darkness inside the human soul.

TONIGHT! Thursday, December 22 I The Thursday Show with Nate Johnson  Nate Johnson hosts a hand-picked lineup of tremendous stand up comics and hilarious sketch comedy.

Friday, December 23 I Best of Mottley’s Holiday Showcase  No lie – this is a handpicked lineup of the best comics in Boston. These are the acts most likely to break out and go to the next level, and you can come see them all on one show. The Boston comedy scene is probably the best in the country, and these young comics are the best of the best! Come on out and get some laughs in before heading into quality holiday time with the family!

Monday, December 26 I Introduction to Burlesque  This week’s move is Tassel Twirling — the ultimate burlesque trick! You will need to bring pasties with tassels to class for this. There will be a few pairs for sale. If you’re uncomfortable appearing in just pasties, please wear a close-fitting tank-top under your bra and affix the pasties to that. It’s harder to twirl, but we don’t want anyone struggling beyond their comfort level. The week’s striptease lesson is Removing a Bra. Please bring a back-fastening bra to class. See the above note about pasties and comfort levels. That applies here too. For extra fun, students will also be playing with Feather Boas, that quintessential burlesque accessory. If you have a boa, by all means bring it, but they’ll also have some loner boas. Read the rest of this entry »
