PAX East MeFight Club redux

I think we all had a great time gaming and such last year -- let's do it again! The full show map hasn't been released yet, but I'd be surprised if there wasn't a handheld lounge with beanbag chairs setup approximately where it was last year. (I'll post a comment with further details and a link to the map once it's available.) Let's plan to meet there on Saturday morning. We'll play it by ear afterwards -- maybe board games, maybe PC or console freeplay -- maybe both if we have more people than last year. [more inside]

The Thing 3: Trivia with a Vengeance

Hey guys! It's time again for Boston/Cambridge area Geeks Who Drink pub trivia. We must continue our trivia dominance over the rest of New England nerdery. We will of course be at Tommy Doyle's in Harvard Square again, but your guess is as good as mine as to which floor. Maybe we'll be on the roof. Who knows--it's all part of the adventure. At least one of us will be wearing a MeFi t-shirt.

Light and Power: a new opera about the Tesla/Edison rivlary (composed by fellow mefite speicus!)

Inspiration strikes like lightning in this visually stunning new production by Juventas New Music Ensemble. "Light and Power" tells the story of brilliant but eccentric inventor Nikola Tesla, whose ideas electrified the world both literally and figuratively. This world premier opera pits turn-of-the-century captains of industry against the fantastical creations of Tesla's imagination. In this epic "War of Currents," the results are always shocking. Librettist Jillian Burcar masterfully translates Tesla's bizarre historical writing into powerful drama, while Isaac Schankler's innovative score bridges grand opera and electronic music with distinctly American melodies. Four performances. [more inside]

PAX East after-hours meetup

We'll be meeting for drinks at Murphy's Law, of Gone Baby Gone fame. It's not the closest bar to BCEC, but it's a short easy walk, and hopefully that means it won't be too busy. This'll be Saturday night, overlapping some of the late Saturday events (JoCo and Omegathon round 3, in particular), but there's not a lot of drinking time that doesn't overlap, so there's really no choice.

Honest Bob and the Factory-to-Dealer Incentives

Honest Bob and the Factory-to-Dealer Incentives is the band I lead, and we're playing at the lovely Cantab dive bar in Cambridge's Central Square this Saturday! Catchy rock with witty lyrics - you know the drill. 21+, $8. We go on at 11 sharp, but earlier bands look interesting, especially the Cello Chix at 9. As for us: Band page, myspace page, more song clips.

Honest Bob and the Factory-to-Dealer Incentives

The band for which I sing, strum, and write is playing in Harvard Square this Friday! Catchy rock with witty lyrics - what's not to love? 21+, nominal cover (like $3). Band page, myspace page, more song clips. If you want to say hi beforehand, I will be the guy in the buzzcut looking bored from waiting all night for his set to start. OK pub food if you get there earlier.
