Given the fact that there’s just too much going on this Thursday to ignore, and simply that Thursdays are also pretty big nights here in Lynn, it’s time to expand the Weekend Rundown. Besides, even a 9 to 5’er knows it’s okay to stay out Thursday with just one more day to go!
Make it a triple. Do these three things this thirsty Thursday:
1. From 5:30 to 7:30pm, random passers-by may be startled to find a piano out on the corner of Market and Oxford Streets in DTL, with people playing it. If you stop by to check it out, you may be rewarded. That’s all LH will say.
2. 6 to 7:30pm, FIVE former Lynn Mayors will join in a round table discussion of Lynn History at the Lynn Museum. A reception follows until 8:30pm. $10 members. $15 non members. Just $5 for college students. 590 Washington Street.
3. After you stop by the piano and receive your reward and then chat with former Lynn Mayors at the Museum, the next stop on your Thursday evening quest is Neighborfest. This annual Octoberfest style celebration of community held by the Downtown Lynn Neighborhood Association gets started at 7:30pm at Tatiana’s, 70 Market St. Your $12 at the door helps DTLna‘s efforts and this year’s non profit beneficiary, TENS (Time Exchange North Shore). See the previous LH post on Neighborfest for all the details, including some darn good raffle prizes. It’ll still be going strong at 8:30 if you choose to stay for the duration of the Museum event.
See the calendar or take your pick (not in order)
1. Good Music Friday’s at Tatiana’s in DTL.
2. Draztik at Walnut Street Cafe, rock-n-roll at 157 Walnut St in Lynn. 8pm.
3. LynnHappens editor DJ Seth at Gulu-Gulu in Salem starting 8pm with indie rock, new wave, post-punk, power-pop and other off-the-beaten-path tunes.
1. Walnut St. fails to disappoint. Blackdog Brother performs. 8pm.
2. DJ Seth is at it again with the ridiculous self promotion, but in Lynn this time. 9pm at Turbine in Central Square with the series, “Rarities and Guilty Pleasures.”
Don White’s Open Mic at Walnut St.
ps. Are blues jams coming back to Washington Street? Sand Bar? What’s the word?
