Shudder Fest Horror Film Festival -
Four independent horror movies and a dozen short films over two nights at the Somerville Theater October 14th & 15th
Org: Asylum -
You know how sometimes you wish that you were cool enough to be friends with all the artsy people in town and you could just throw a big party and everyone would perform? (No? Is that just me?) Well Mali Sastri (lead singer of Jaggery) is that cool. And she is throwing that party. And you’re invited: “The second in the Org performance event series to take place at Oberon, Org: Asylum includes a short film shot on location at an abandoned state mental institution, a butoh interpretation of Vaslav Nijinsky, a body-painting storyteller sharing tales of art-making and suicide attempts, and much more.”
Now to figure out my “asylum chic” attire… I’m thinking Harley Quinn?
Aliza's Brain Trust -
Aliza is a pillar of the Boston alternative and arts communities, as well as a supporter of the LAB. Please consider helping out. Every little bit makes a difference.
"On Monday, July 25, 2011, Aliza Shapiro, the big brains behind Truth Serum Productions, was admitted to the hospital and is being treated for a stroke caused by a cerebral hemorrhage.
She currently has motor and vision impairment on the right side as well as language impairment. Aliza will have a long challenging road back to full recovery but we know she will get there with the love and support of her family, friends and various creative communities.
As a self-employed event producer, artist, and activist in the Boston music and queer arts communities for over 15 years, Aliza has neither employer benefits nor deep resources to support her during this rehabilitation time. Aliza’s Brain Trust is a way to help support her by raising money for her treatment and expenses during her recovery, as well as fostering the amazing community connections Aliza has created and is a vital part of.
Please click on the Donate button to support Aliza with whatever amount you wish (even $5 gets us closer to our goal), and be sure to add your stories, photos and notes for Aliza below.”
Joshua Meyer, a friend of the LAB whose art hung in our lobby during Le Cabaret Grimm, is being featured in an exhibit at the Tufts University Art Gallery. The exhibit features new and recent work by 13 Massachusetts Cultural Council 2010 Award Recipients in Painting and Drawing. It runs until July 31st.
