The Mexicano-Americana folk band the David Wax Museum’s CD-release party for their new Everything Is Saved at Oberon Thursday night was a triumph in every way: musically, theatrically, even socially and politically -- from the fair-trade chocolate and coffee being given away in the lobby to the simulated village street festival the band conjured inside, replete with trapeze aerialist to complete the carnival atmosphere.
FRIDAY 05.28 | CHUCKIE @ Royale
Don't worry, it's not the Chuckie who climbs out of your
toybox in the middle of the night and chews your face off. It's Chuckie the lovable Dutch DJ who's been causing outbreaks of jawdrop
wherever he spins. Catch the rising star before he takes the party back to the Hague.
AMANDA PALMER swore us to secrecy last month, but now that the cat's coming out of the bag (when the ART reveals its fall schedule tomorrow morning), we can tell you that Amanda has signed on to star as the Emcee in an American Repertory Theatre production of CABARET to be staged in September at Club Oberon in Harvard Square, the same place she kicked off her ill-fated Evelyn Evelyn tour just weeks ago
We're going to start this off with a huge tease. The biggest news
to come out of our interview with AMANDA PALMER can't be printed --
yet. But we'll let this much slip: you're going to be seeing a lot more
of her in the Boston area this fall, in a role you've never seen her play before, which may also be the role she was born for.
Put another feather in the cap of the ART-affiliated OBERON THEATER (up for a Boston Best 2010 award if you're in the voting mood), which last night played host to JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, in town to receive the Hasty Pudding's annual goofball Man of the Year award.
