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]

10 Years of Goating It Up

So at some point, post-daylight savings but pre-New Year ten long years ago we settled into a comfortable routine of drinking tiny beers and eating greasy grill food on the First Wednesday of every month in one another's splendid company. This is the closest you're getting to an anniversary event. We hope you'll join us. There might be cake. Or swag. Or nothing at all. [more inside]

Nobody is Above the Law: Austin - Mueller Protection Rapid Response

Austin MeFites: come band together and stand together at city hall this evening as we mobilize to demand protection for the Mueller investigation to hold president Trump and the cronies of his administration accountable for their actions. The forced resignation of Jeff Sessions and the subsequent replacement of Rod Rosenstein by Trumpist stooge Matt Whittaker should not go unanswered. This is nothing but a transparent step towards ending or discrediting the investigation, and the people of Austin, Texas will not be fooled. [more inside]
