Scotch & Steak Dinner
Invented in the 18th century to make life a little more interesting: scotch. Unfortunately, scotch was deemed too wonderful to drink without a sufficiently delicious meat next to it to amplify its flavors, and thus it was locked away for centuries. That is, until tonight, where it will be brought back into the realm of humanity to be consumed alongside a tender steak. Feast to your heart’s content on fine scotch and steak. After all, it’s the new PB&J.
Blue on Highland. 882 Highland Ave., Needham. 7-11pm/21+/$85. thebostoncalendar.com/events/scotch-steak-dinner

Fathoms – Richie Parsons – Tsunami of Sound
When was the last time you heard surf music? I mean, real surf music, live and everything? You answered either “a long time ago” or “never.” Which is fine, but let’s try to change that, all right? Fathom’s going to be in town Saturday night at the Midway Café, so it’s time to take on some killer waves. Complementing Fathoms are Richie Parsons Band and Tsunami of Sound, only amplifying that early ’60s sound that’s been long gone in mainstream music.

Silent Film with Live Music: Woman in the Moon
How do you feel about three-and-a-half-hour movies? How about three-and-a-half-hour movies from 1929? Yup, you didn’t read that wrong. Woman in the Moon is considered one of the first, if not the first, science fiction films in history. It’s a clichéd epic, but that doesn’t stop it from being a pleasurable ride. With a live band providing the film’s score, it’s bound to be an even better experience than watching it plain. It’s a time sink, but it’s one worth falling into.
Aeronaut Brewing Company. 14 Tyler St., Somerville. 7-9pm/21+/$10. eventbrite.com/e/silent-film-with-live-music-woman-in-the-moon-tickets-20492674140
