Rock and Roll may not be dead, but it does seem like there's a priest leaning over its bed, reciting the last rites. However, if The Silks have anything to do with it, the body will soon be out of bed, bopping around the room. What makes their debut disc, Last American Band, so special is this Rhode Island trio not only rocks but also rolls. While longhaired singer-guitarist, Tyler-James Kelly belts it out like early Paul Rodgers, bassist Jonas Parmelee and drummer Matthew Donnelly, keep the beat swinging. One listen to these guys and you'll remember this music is for the body as well as the mind. The minute you hear The Silks? You can't sit down. ATWOOD'S TAVERN IS A MIX OF SEATING AND STANDING ROOM. PURCHASING A TICKET DOES NOT GUARANTEE SEATING.

Newborn Care for the Newbie Becoming a parent, especially for the first time, is not for the faint of heart. There is so much you have to do and know all while you’re managing what most agree is a very overwhelming time in your life. During the three hour Newborn Care class you will learn the basics of caring for your newborn and perhaps more importantly gain some confidence from hands-on swaddling, soothing, and diapering practice. In the car or the crib you’ll also learn how to make your baby’s environment safe. We’ll discuss the American Academy of Pediatrics Safe Sleep Guidelines as well as car seat safety information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and safercar.gov.
The Newborn Care class will help you feel better prepared to respond to your newborn’s needs and you’ll learn about realistic expectations of what life with a newborn may be like for the first few months. It is true…you will be sleep deprived and you may not be able to shower as often as you like… but knowing what to expect (from your newborn, yourself and your partner) will help you manage and enjoy this special time with your new family. We recommend taking our “Infant Feeding” prenatal class after Newborn Care.
This class can accommodate six couples.
Instructor: Kathy Ulrich
Class will be held at our new location 778 Tremont St Boston, MA 02118

Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow. ~ Imogen Cunningham
Ok - so now that you have taken thousands of photos, time to decide which ones to keep and which to delete. Part of taking better pictures is learning how to see the difference in photos that are good and those that are great.
There are some powerful clear guidelines or criteria you can apply to your own work to make it stronger. I have been using these for years in my own work and now am happy to share them with you. This is not so much about how to do the edits, but about what edits to do and why.
This is not a technical class on editing your photos. There are plenty of other classes out there on the use of Photoshop, Lightroom, or other editing software. We will focus on the CREATIVE SEEING PROCESS of judging your images to see and emphasize their strengths and edit out the visual distractions. Think of it as developing the “good eye” so you can spot the keepers.
Taking time to learn how to judge and gently edit your images during this day will also help you take better pictures in the future. Once you know what to look for, you can make these same choices while taking photos by editing your experience in the moment. This will save you time and effort in the future because then your photos will need very little editing.

The 37th annual John Coltrane Memorial Concert: A Love Supreme
The Friends of the John Coltrane Memorial Concert (FJCMC) in collaboration with the Center for the Arts at Northeastern University present the 2014 John Coltrane Memorial Concert celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Coltrane’s majestic suite, “A Love Supreme”, considered by many to be the greatest spiritual jazz composition of all time. This year’s featured guest is Donald Harrison, New Orleans saxophonist, composer, arranger and principal consultant for the “Treme” series on HBO.
Mr. Harrison will join with master musicians Bill Pierce, Carl Atkins, George W. Russell, Jr., John Ramsay, Ron Mahdi, Yoron Israel and Leonard Brown. Together, this all-star ensemble will perform contemporary versions of some of Coltrane’s sacred music from the later stages of his life that served to bring the devotional essence of African and African American music to “jazz.” A feature of the evening will be the Ensemble’s performance of the complete “A Love Supreme” Suite with recitation of Coltrane’s prayer by Eric Jackson of WGBH radio, who will also serve as host for the evening.
The annual Friends of John Coltrane Memorial Concert has a tradition of presenting world-class musicians and creative artists. The first memorial concert was performed in Boston in 1977, the 10th year anniversary of Coltrane’s death.
The John Coltrane Memorial Concert is produced by Leonard Brown Associate Professor of Music & African American Studies) and Emmett G. Price III, (Associate Professor of Music and former chair of the Department of African American Studies).

"Bug" A Dark Comedy by Tracy Letts Outside Oklahoma City: Late 90's Agnes, a down on her luck divorcee, has all but shut herself off from the world in her motel room. Peter, a Gulf War vet with a dark past, wanders the midwest. When they meet, sparks...fly? Between visits from her dangerous ex-husband, Agnes finds herself caught up in Peter's assertion that they are being monitored.
