120. weekend to-do's

  1. meet and eat. one of our favorite somerville restaurants, la brasa is teaming up with boston & bale for their e-som maker's market. this special saturday brunch will go from 10am-3pm and many of our favorite local makers will be on hand with their amazing products - among them claire cheney from curio spice co. and janine kwoh from kwohtations.
  2. daring debut. australian hip hop artist and poet, omar musa will be at harvard book store on saturday evening. he will be reading from and discussing his debut novel here come the dogs. musa has described his coming of age tale as being about "hip hop, graffiti, greyhounds, drugs, bushfires". the audacity and realism of his writing is already garnering high praise.
  3. dance and discussion. the dance complex will be hosting its monthly sunday salon this weekend. each salon allows those attending to view and respond to works in progress. this is a great opportunity for those in the dance community to sharpen their critical skills and for others to provide a fresh take.

  1. play a little. my band parks is playing a show at once in somerville tonight with one of my favorite local bands, eternals. we're joined by touring band wilder maker to round out the evening of solid music.
  2. dance a little. heading out to support other local bands this weekend at the loft. this small diy venue is a great little gem of a place to see up and coming bands.
  3. sew a little. i've been testing out my garment making skills this winter and found a comprehensive class on skillshare. caroline hart is a master pattern maker and seamstress and has worked with celebrities like victoria beckham and sienna miller. i can't wait to dig into her classes to push my clothing making skills to the next level. project runway, here i come.
