didn't make it out to any clubs this weekend but I did go to the Coolidge
Corner Cinema to see the newly refurbished Metropolis with The
Alloy Orchestra performing live musical accompaniment. The Alloy Orchestra
is Roger Miller (Mission of Burma), Ken Winokur and Terry Donahue and they
have an amazing array or musical instruments, junk and found object that they
use to create fantastic music for silent films. At first I found it strange that
the score wasn't coming from the usual place but from these guys right on the
side of the stage but after about 10 minutes it was just wonderful. I really made
the event so much more memorable, enjoyable and multi-layered. This was the first
stop in a country wide tour of Metropolis for them but they will be back in the
area March 5 2011 at The Somerville Theater for the last showing of the
film. It is so well worth it to experience a film this way!
Not to forget Providence which has some gigs going on. This is at AS220 on Friday.
Watts got good some good ink in the 'g' section of the Globe. ....WATTS ARTICLE IN THE GLOBE

saying : But if going out to a club is what you crave of course it's out there
