Gamelan! What is it, you may ask?

My son and I are going to see a Gamelan Ensemble performance by Gamelan Laras Tentrem and the Tufts University Gamelan Ensemble: tomorrow, Saturday 12/8, 7pm*, at the Granoff Music Center, Fisher Performance Room, 20 Talbot St, Somerville. We'll meet at 6:45 in front of the Fisher Performance Room (see my comment below*) inside the Granoff Music Building at Tufts U, 20 Talbot Ave in Somerville. (I think it may one floor below the entrance) If we're hungry and it's not too late, we'll go and eat something afterwards. [more inside]

Tatering Around is filmed before a live studio audience

Back in 2018 I was on a very famous trivia team
They won every two weeks, it was just like a dream
They're called the Taters, and they are Geeks Who Drink
Come out to Phoenix Landing, if you like to think
And you're more Tater than a Mefite
Or you're more Mefite than a Tater
