There is one thing you absolutely must do this weekend and that’s avoid the mall at all costs! That shouldn’t be too hard with the many sweet events going on. Get in the holiday spirit at the Balzer Theater presentation of the Gifts of the Magi or get your groove on with a Grammy-award winner at Eddie’s Attic!
Friday, November 29 – Ellis Paul @ Eddie’s Attic
Ellis Paul is one of the leading voices in American songwriting and one of the top songwriters to emerge out of the fertile Boston folk scene. Though he remains among the most pop-friendly of today’s singer-songwriters, he has bridged the gulf between the modern folk sound and the populist traditions of Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger more successfully than perhaps any of his songwriting peers.
7pm Show: Doors at 6:30. Tickets $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Tables with 4 reserved seats are $75. Online and phone sales end at 5pm.
9:30pm Show: Doors at 9:15. Tickets $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Tables with 4 reserved seats are $75. Online and phone sales end at 5pm.
Friday, November 29 – The Mad Violinist & the Symphony Crack Orchestra @ Vinyl
Trained from an early age in strings and percussion and having a mastery of music theory, Ashanti Floyd is considered a “melodic, rhythmic genius”.
