About Somerville
map
Somerville Massachusetts is an urban industrial city located northwest of Boston along the divide between the lower Charles and Mystic River watersheds. In its earliest history Somerville served as the grazing lands for the residents and farmers of Charlestown and had only a few scattered permanent settlements. This is a sharp contrast to the Somerville of today which is comprised of 4.1 square miles and has a total population of over 77,400 people making it the most densely populated community in New England!

Somerville was established as a town in 1842 and its population grew in leaps and bounds from that time forward. Many of the new settlers worked in the brick yards producing as many as 1.3 million bricks a year by hand or 5.5 million with a new press. At its highest point in production the town was turning out 24 million bricks being made in 12 brick yards in the city.

By the end of 1851, heavy industry was prominent here and was soon followed by rolling and slitting mills, iron works and manufacturers of steam engines and boilers. With the establishment of the street car lines, Somerville's population again exploded growing to six times its number between 1870 and 1915. The scale of the meat packing industry earned Somerville the reputation as the Chicago of New England. The city's population reached its peak during the Second World War when almost 106,000 people were said to create a density greater than that of Calcutta!

Closely built two families and triple-deckers fill the city to house its dense and diversified people. Today, Somerville is a mix of blue-collar families, young professionals and recent immigrants. It is known for its large number of city squares which help mark neighborhood boundaries. Among those most active today are Davis Square, Union Square, Ball Square, Teele Square and Magoun Square.

ComedySportz: Fast and Funny Improv Competition

The competition is fierce, fast, funny and fun for all ages at this ingenious improv show that pits two teams of sharp-witted performers against each other in an all-out battle for comedy supremacy. With the audience providing suggestions and ultimately proclaiming winners, the squads are challenged to come up with scenes, bits and songs on the spot, in the spirit of TV's Whose Line Is It Anyway? A referee watches the action, calling fouls and keeping score, as the players compete in seven to 12 different improv games each time, out of a repertoire of more than 100. You'll never see the same show twice, and they keep it clean for the kids.

Mirkelam
 
 In 1995, Mirkelam came “running” into the Turkish music scene, with an impact never seen before. His first album was recorded the same year including the hits “Her Gece”, “Tavla” and “Hatiralar”. This was the first of his many collaborations with Iskender Paydas. In 1998 his self –titled second album was released with the hit song “Ah Bir Joker”. The third album, dated 2001, was named “Unutulmaz”, meaning“unforgettable” which was what it exactly became.

Subsequent albums were also released after 3 year intervals; in 2004 “Kalbimde Parmak Izin Var” and in 2007 “Mutlu Olmak Istiyorum” came out. The latter included the songs “Asuman Pansuman”, “Elma Degil Ayva” and “Bi’ Fotograf Çekinebilir Miyiz?” that became instant classics. In 2010 he joined forces with the rock band Kargo for the album “RRDP (Rakin Rol Disko Parti)”.

Seven maintains a small fleet of “normal” bicycles, has built and maintained her own modified bicycles, and she likes to read bicycle repair manuals for kicks. Seven enjoys maintenance best when her SCUL comrades get together and ask her two or three “how do I…” questions at once. She’s also keen on hot yoga, meditation, making electronics go, and treasures playtime with friends.

Introduction to TIG Welding: OCTOBER

Description:

This class is designed to introduce students to the process of TIG welding, a precise type of welding most often used in the manufacture of spaceframe structures like bike frames and roll cages. Students will learn how to weld different types of materials, different types of shapes, and different types of joints together, and will learn how to use the large range of supporting equipment (brushes, sanders, grinders, etc.) and processes that come with welding.

Class Goals:

The goal of this class will be to train a student to the point where they can weld on Artisan's Asylum equipment safely and independently.

Prerequisites:

Students must be at least 18 years of age.

Materials:

Students will bring a flannel shirt, leather gloves and safety glasses to class. Students will purchase raw materials from the instructor as needed for their projects.

Instructor Biography:

In 1993 Skunk picked up a TIG torch, struck an arc, and produced his first weld puddle (oddly enough, it was in titanium). Ever since, he has been on a relentless mission to transmogrify and personify spark plugs, circuit breaker boxes, reamer blades, typewriters, and the like, helping the little creatures he inherently sees in objects transcend their original purpose. Saw blades are reinvented into angelic wings, tin cans devolve into rose pedals, and a broken clarinet gets a second life as a pirate blunderbuss. No outdated or discarded mechanical devices are safe from joining the parade of fantastic creatures, mighty rayguns, and emotional robots, some of which tip the scales at over 300 pounds.

Skunk is also the Grand Poobah of a bicycle nerd-gang known as SCUL, and works as a professional custom bike builder for Seven Cycles.

MARY COUGHLAN Live @ The Burren
A lot has been written and a lot has been said, whispered, recounted, alleged, supposed and presumed. It's all quite forgotten now and the songs remain the same, they remain a testament to Mary Coughlan's seemingly timeless and endless talent. Her smoky, bluesy, boozy drawl has always been a seduction, no matter what the subject. The vocal marrying of sardonic wit, visceral rage, orgiastic between the sheets passion, the tenderest of sorrowful regrets; this is Mary's talent. Regardless of the elements she chooses to manipulate with flawless ease, Mary's voice has always been an unforeseen, sudden seduction. This is why she is so loved. Throughout the over 25 years of her quite extraordinary recording career Mary has drawn heavily from her legendary heroes; Billie Holiday's grievous, teary outpourings, the husky flirtations of Peggy Lee, Van Morrison's soulful wails, the defiant chanteusery of Edith Piaf. All are present and correct in her delivery. Even so, Mary, with her naked honesty makes every song her own; they belong to her and nobody else. Who else could possibly present "Double Cross" or "Magdalen Laundry" or "The Ice Cream Man" with such dedication and effortless zeal? The casual listener may know something of "Ancient Rain", "Invisible To You" or maybe "Man Of The World". These may well be among the greatest of Mary's many great hits, however there is so much more to the story. How about an entire double album dedicated to her love of Billie Holiday. Billie died at 44, the age at which Mary performed songs from the album to sold-out venues and enraptured audiences at her "Lady Sings The Blues" shows staged in Dublin and London in 2001. How about "Live In Galway", Mary's triumphant, if anxious, return from the brink to the stage in 1995. At the time she pleaded the venue to host the gig, having to repent for previously letting them down a little too frequently. She had become the "no-show". Mary sold out 8 gigs in a row. How about "Live At The Basement". Recorded in Sydney among an intimate audience in 2003, this is the ultimate in down and dirty jazz club renditions. It's hard to imagine a more succinct demonstration of both the raw and refined nature of Mary's talents. The stage is where Mary survives. From a small square footage of venue real estate in front of a handful or a thousand or ten thousand people, she emotes, purges, atones, reminisces, eulogises and laments. That is why there is a full disc of live recordings included in this collection, because this is the very best of Mary Coughlan and you can't hear the very best until you've heard her story recited in every note.

The Oriana Consort: The Muse of Midwinter (Somerville, MA)
Celebrate Oriana's Twentieth Anniversary Season with us! Benjamin Britten (1913-1976) A Ceremony of Carols This setting by Benjamin Britten of nine carols -- some of anonymous medieval origin, some from the 16th century -- is one of the most popular Christmas works of all time. The harp is integral to the work: each carol has a sparkling harp accompaniment; the harp accompanies the unison Gregorian chant that begins and ends the work; and the harp has a solo that is an imaginative variation of that chant. The work's origin is interesting: In 1942, as Britten was returning to England from the USA by crossing the submarine-infested Atlantic aboard a Swedish freighter, the ship docked at Halifax, NS, where Britten found in a bookstore a copy of The English Galaxy of Shorter Poems, edited by the English novelist Gerald Bullett. During the crossing he selected seven of the poems that were carol texts, and set them for treble voices and harp. These were performed in December 1942, after which Britten revised his carol set by adding two more carols, the Gregorian processional and recessional, the harp interlude, and the name A Ceremony of Carols. This revised version, first performed in December 1943, became so popular that the composer Julius Harrison was invited to transcribe the work for full choir of mixed voices. It is this transcription of Britten's delightful Christmas music, published in 1955, that Oriana sings in these concerts. George Frideric Handel (1685-1759) Let God Arise This anthem, being a setting of verses from Psalm 68 and Psalm 76, is not a Christmas piece. But the words of these Psalms, though they begin rather defiantly, express the kind of joyfulness and praise that are associated with the Nativity season. (Some passages of Let God Arise even foreshadow passages in Messiah, not to be written until twenty-four years later!) From 1717 to 1719, Handel (who had migrated from his native Germany to Italy, then briefly back to Germany, then to England) was composer-in-residence at Cannons, the Middlesex estate of James Brydges, the Duke of Chandos. There, for use in the Duke's divine services, Handel wrote twelve Psalm settings for choral and solo voices, with instrumental accompaniment -- the Chandos Anthems -- which became the musical groundwork for his future oratorios. In 1719 Handel returned to London, where he ensured a steady flow of operas for the Royal Academy of Music. In 1726, borrowing from his Chandos Anthems, he transcribed and revised Number 11, Let God Arise, for the Chapel Royal at St. James Palace; it was performed there in January of that year. It is this version of Let God Arise -- a Chandos Anthem redux -- that Oriana performs in these concerts, accompanied by an ensemble of instruments of Handel's era. Three carols by British composers before Benjamin Britten, and three carols by a British composer after him: Peter Warlock (1894-1930) Benedicamus Domino | Let us bless the Lord William Byrd (1539 or 40-1623) Songs of sundrie natures. Earthly tree Herbert Howells (1892-1983) A Spotless Rose John Rutter (1945-) Wexford Carol; Angels' Carol; What Sweeter Music

Boston Comedy Festival Stand Up Contest: Semi-finals 2

The Boston Comedy Festival Contest has become known for its ability to provide significant breaks to up-and-coming comics. This is a great chance to see talented comedians destined to be household names.

With Special Guest: Dan Boulger

Hi, I'm Dan and I'm currently writing my bio. Many comedians do not admit to writing there own bio's. They just write it as if someone else wrote it so that they can have a chance to refer to themselves in the 3rd person. I started doing standup in late 2004 when I was a freshman in College. I don't remember the exact date I only remember that the Patriots lost to the Bengals that day. For the next couple of years I did shows around Boston. Then in 2006 I won Boston Comedy Festival. Then I dropped out of school the next day. I remember I had some crap paper due. I went up to the professor and said "hey I won a comedy festival over the weekend and I've been drunk for about three days." There may be some college students reading this. If you ever need an extension give that excuse a shot. After that I've appeared on Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, The BBC, and the HBO Aspen Comedy Festival.
