AERONAUT Live Recording Sessions @DUCKVILLAGE
Every Wednesday night, Aeronaut Brewing Company records and broadcasts live music and performances in the brewery to patrons in the taproom. It’s kind of kick-ass. Past performances have ranged from simple jazz, rock, and classical music to live renditions of Shakespeare and 3D light shows. This Wednesday features the Dirty Waters Brass Band. If unique drinking experiences are your thing, then you owe it to yourself to head on down for a beer or three.
Aeronaut Brewing Company. 14 Tyler St., Somerville. 6-11pm/21+/FREE. aeronautbrewing.com/events/
Free Film Screening!
The French Cultural Center is presenting a free screening of director Christophe Gans’ La Belle et la Bête, a dark reimagining of the classic fairytale. Winner of the César Award for Best Production Design in 2014, La Belle et la Bête is a spectacle to behold if nothing else. The film will be screened in its original French with English subtitles added in. After the film, an open discussion led by film expert Barbara Bouquegneau will close the night. Oui oui.
The French Cultural Center. 53 Marlborough St., Boston. 6:30-9pm/all ages/FREE. frenchculturalcenter.org
Boston Music Awards Day #2
Hopefully you won’t have to suffer through Evan Dando and his 2015 Hall of Fame induction speech (or music) to see These Wild Plains, because they’re the only reason you should go. Always slightly insufferable and less relevant each year, the BMAs promise to throw up in your mouth and drop a stiff uppercut to follow. Day #1 is definitely a better lineup, which is why we’re telling you about Day #2. They’re fucked. So come enjoy the Sinclair in all its awesomeness. You should order the deviled eggs and a Notch at some point. That should wash down the puke.
The Sinclair. 52 Church St., Cambridge. 7pm/18+/$25. bostonmusicawards.com
Lunch with Steve Theo
It’s not often that you get a chance to have lunch with Steve Theo. When he’s not teaching at Bay State College or running his promotion and management company, Pirate!, he’s doing shots of Jameson at the Tam or skiing gnarly bumps up north. So it was great to hear that we finally nailed down a date, this Friday, to have some lunch together. Nothing is set in stone yet, but it’s going to be, and when it is, it’s going to be set in muthafucking stone!
Lunch with Steve Theo. Somewhere, Boston. Noonish/21+/Pricey as shit. piratepirate.com
Holiday Oddity Market @ Eridanos
Looking for a goat skull as a gift? How about a petrified penis or cufflinks made from dead bugs? Aren’t we all! The perfect gifts are often too expensive and hard to find, which is why Eridanos Tattoo and Gallery is throwing down with their holiday market. Vintage items and funky oddities will be available from Bad Moon Consignment and Our Lady of Reclamation. You’re bound to find some crazy shit to stuff those stockings with, so make a day of it.
Eridanos Tattoo and Gallery. 36 Prospect St., Cambridge. Noon-8pm/all ages/FREE. facebook.com/events/934201983335199/
SAT 12.12 / SUN 12.13
Mimi’s Family @ Children’s Museum
We originally told you about this online last week, but it’s important enough that we’re going to remind you. Mimi’s Family is a powerful visual exhibit by photographer Matthew Clowney. It captures the everyday life of a transgender grandparent among her family. Unfortunately the two month run is coming to an end on 12.13, so this is your last chance to see this audaciously moving display. Get there this weekend. You’ll thank us.
Boston Children’s Museum. 308 Congress St., Boston. 10am-5pm/all ages/Adults $16. bostonchildrensmuseum.org
