Anthony asked me if there were any good shows coming up. Silly Anthony.
If money wasn’t an issue and work wasn’t a thing, this coming week would be the best. Because Cat is being a lame-o and won’t let me go to Unit 11 (I’m kidding!), I’m going to go ahead and plan everyone’s week for them. It’s kiiinda amazing. I’m a big believer of fun not being restricted to just Friday-Sunday (hello, I’m a waitress).
How about you click ‘keep reading’ link if you really want me to keep talking? I don’t want to break the front page.

A paladin, a wizard, and a thief walk into a Vietnamese restaurant.
A teacher, a math whiz, and a vintage salesman started a band.

Here’s the thing. Like many apartments in Allston, the one I find myself in is an absolute hotbed for musical activity.
We have Brian, musical genius and founder of European Nobility. It’s Serf Rock, kids. He plays piano, I play claves, and Cat is auditioning for the guillotine.
Auditioning, that is, because she’s got her own thing going as well – enter, Hello Ninja. And, lucky you, they’re playing at the Middle East Upstairs tonight! Come hang!
Presented by FNice Records, with The Susan Constants, Ship High in Transit, The Culprit Policy. 8 PM, $10.

Just couldn’t figure out what song it was. Drummed out the beat to Cat, she looked at me cross-eyed and bought me a coffee. Walked around the restaurant humming it, scared off customers and caused employee dissatisfaction. But then, as I was walking to the pot wash (this is where I do all my hardest thinking… life has really taken off), I got it!
And now, reader, you will share my burden. The song in question is ‘Anchor Home’ by a new band out of Somerville, Four Eyes. Who are these chaps? Will (ex-Tussin), Nick (ex-Montcalm) and Dan (current Daniel Striped Tiger), that’s who. I always get nervous when I listen to friends’ music – I’m not a very good liar, you see. It’s nice when you don’t have to lie.

Saturday the 23rd at Midway Cafe (3496 Washington Street, Jamaica Plain), 4 PM, $7
