Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 90. Silence of the Frog

Last week it was Saturday in Three Parties, so to speak. The first was what you might expect from a group of local artists schmoozing at a really cool house off Browncroft. Second was a quiet housewarming party with the older part of the crowd at Monty's Krown. Third was a hempier going-away party with the younger part of the crowd at Monty's Krown. Juxtaposition rules.

  • Beautiful - A young woman finds that beauty is only skin deep so sometimes you have to turn yourself inside out to find inner beauty. Wait a minute ... didn't this open last week?
  • Remember the Titans - When a Virginia high school gets racially integrated in the early 1970's, a black man and a white man apply for the job of football coach. Due to the new integration laws, they are physically merged into one whack body.
  • Girlfight - Diane is just a poor girl, her story seldom told. She quit her high-school education for her knock-out fighting prowess -- such are skills she has.

Tonight's best pick is Elderwilde at Java's (16 Gibb Street) starting at 8:30. It should be interesting to see them acoustic. Dean said their drummer was going to opt for using portable stuff for percussion instead of a drum set.

Tonight around 10:30-ish at The Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave.) Edge of Jupiter with Gaylord and Flashing Astonishers will be playing.

Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) will have Speak Easy starting around 10:30-ish.

Milestones (170 East Ave.) has a listing under "Klezmer" in Freetime Magazine for Hypnotic Clambake with Milkhouse starting around 10:00-ish. Freetime says, "[Hypnotic Clambake plays a] unique blend of 'caffeinated Cajun-Klezmerfied, trans-Atlantic rockin' Polkadelic music.'" I don't know what that means, but I'll be sure to check out Hypnotic Clambake when they're not at Milestones.

Lastly, Tapas One Seventy Seven (177 Saint Paul St.) hosts Salsa Lessons starting at 9 -- hot, medium, and mild.

Dinner as always at California Rollin' at Village Gate Square (274 N. Goodman St.)

So far it's looking like yet another freakin' slow Friday night. Check Freetime Magazine and pick something yourself.

Some random suggestions include:

  • Water Street Music Hall (204 N. Water St.) has Joan Osborne with Lina at 8.
  • Johnny's Smoke Free Bar (1382 Culver Rd.) has Croonin' Kurt and his Hi-Geared Combo.
  • Fat Moe's (4419 Dewey Ave.) has No Boundaries because Fat Moe's is an alright bar to visit.

Karaoke with Sugar Bear at Boston Brew Company (251 Exchange Blvd.)

O'Bagelo's, 165 State Street, noon.

Tonight I'll probably try to get over to Richmonds (21 Richmond St.) to see the groove rock band Intrepid Traveler, probably starting around 11:00-ish.

Over at Piranha (204 N. Water St.) is A New Sense for A. D. D. Night. I assume that's for Attention Deficit the band probably fast.

Tonight Up From Crash, Ned Pepper, and Elderwilde will be playing starting around 10. Too bad they're at Milestones (170 East Ave.)

Karaoke with Sugar Bear at The Blue Room (293 Alexander St.) Check out some singers, then head downstairs and regain your hearing.

Photon Emitter:
