There’s so much going on around Boston, I’m just going to get right into it, no time for jokes. (Just kidding, there’s always time for jokes.) (Otherwise how will I make people like me?) (Yes everyone needs to like me I was born broken and only the constant outward validation of my self-worth can make me feel whole again.) On to this week’s events! (more…)

In a couple days you’re going to wake up and check your phone and it’ll say “Saturday, August 1” and you’ll freak out and resolve to stop wasting your summer. Then you’ll go back to sleep for a while because it’s too hot to go anywhere without AC, or at least a powerful fan pointed directly at your undercarriage. But eventually you’ll get out of bed and pull up this post and start kicking summer’s ass. (more…)

Hey everyone, Jim from The Boston Calendar here with events that don’t suck for the Fourth of July weekend and beyond. Half the city’s going out of town and the other half is already staking out spots on the Esplanade, but for the other other half, there’s still plenty going on. Or just find a barbeque somewhere — or even better, a BBQ (fewer letters = more American, and that “-que” part looks suspiciously French).

We really are spoiled here in the summers, and I don’t just mean because we get so used to warm weather that the air conditioning in a chilly restaurant feels worse than all of February’s blizzards combined. I mean because there’s so much stuff to do. This week Cambridge throws down on Mass Ave, Everett gets a new craft distillery, and the Museum of Science explains the, um, science, behind Pixar movies.

Don’t let the April-ish weather we’ve been getting keep you from all of the summer-themed parties this week, because summer is just a state of mind, anyways: A mind in a drunk enough state that instead of listening when your body parts say they’re freezing it’s like “Shut up, torso, we’ll put a shirt on when it’s snowing.”

Five Things You Missed at Boston Calling V

The lineup for the fifth edition of the Boston Calling Music Festival read like a menu for the chain restaurant you go to when someone wants ribs, someone wants fajitas, and someone wants chicken fingers because she’s 14: There’s a little something for everyone. People like to hate on those restaurants, but hey, everyone went home happy, right?

The May edition of the biannual festival lit up City Hall Plaza with performances spanning alternative rock, hip hop, acoustic folk, indie pop, and ‘70s soul — and that was just Beck’s Friday night set. (more…)
