Andrew Scandal Performs, and a Somerville Music Video
Plus some farmers market information and a lecture about the future of education.
1) Andrew Scandal performs at Bloc 11
Andrew Scandal, a local guy who spent years performing in New York and LA and was dubbed "Bizarrus Maximus" when he was a finalist at the Williamsburg, Brooklyn, songwriting competition, will perform at Bloc 11 in Union Square tonight at 8 p.m.
The show is free, and if you want to gauge how much bang for your buck you get in terms of entertainment value, take 45 seconds to check out Andrew Scandal's Facebook page, where you can listen to some of his songs.
By the way, the name may sound vaguely familiar to those of you who read Somerville Patch's real estate columns.
2) Somerville band's "spy caper" video
Local band Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling creates songs inspired by the 1960s "spy-fi" TV show, The Prisoner. The band recently released a music video for the song "First We Take Manhattan," written by Leonard Cohen. But Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling's version is quite different. The video features a ton of Somerville locations and sites. Here's an added benefit: If you watch it, you probably won't need your morning coffee.
3) Farmers market stuff
Today is Wednesday, which means the Davis Square Farmers Market is up and running from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.. Also, Farmers to You, which delivers local farm goods to the Boston area, is resuming its delivery schedule today, despite flooding in Vermont as a result of Tropical Storm Irene. The Somerville drop-off is today from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Visit the Farmers to You website for more information.
4) "Future Careers in Education: Navigating the 21st Century Jobscape"
Dr. Timothy Sullivan, vice president of the Massachusetts Teachers Association, will give a lecture about the future of education today at the Cambridge College School of Education, at 80 Prospect St. Yes, Cambridge. But it's a nice day for a walk down Prospect.
5) Weather and Red Sox
It's another beautiful day. Sunny, with highs in the mid 80s. Wow. The Red Sox continue their important series against the Yankees at 7:10 p.m. The game is in Boston, and Josh Beckett is expected to start.
