Jesse Cook Last Night at the Wilbur!

On a whim, and for no particular event, birthday, or anniversary celebration, I purchased tickets to take my guitar-playing husband, Tom, to hear the mesmerizing, evocative, and GORGEOUS music of Jesse Cook and Company. He loved it and I am a huge fan now, too.  On stage last night, Cook announced that they are returning to Boston this summer to play at Copley Square and I hope to find out more about this upcoming performance.

Cook is thought to be the most influential figure in nuevo flamenco guitar and his music is richly infused by many forms of music from around the world including Egyptian, Armenian, and American jazz and blues.

As they did in this live performance at the Rose Theatre, Jesse and the band came into the audience last night at the Wilbur to perform their second encore.

Showing respect

Since the April 15, 2013 tragedy Rick and I have wanted to go and my our respect.  On Sunday, April 30, 2013 we decided to go down to Boylston Street.  The street was very busy with people also paying their respect and eating and shopping.  Our emotions were very strong, seeing teddy bears, flowers, beautiful poems, shrine, shoes and hats.  Many tears were rolling down my cheeks as well as most visitors.   Kindness and compassion will overcome the evil.

Boston – Symphony Hall

One of the nice things about Gloucester is that we have the conveniences of living near Boston, but the benefits of a relatively small community.  Just a few days ago, I went to a concert at Symphony Hall. It’s great to have a world-class orchestra practically right down the road!

It was my first time at Symphony Hall, and although the performance itself was fantastic, I was also rather impressed by the venue.  Here are a few photos I took with my iPhone (using the accessory lenses I reviewed earlier, in most cases the Instagram app, and in the first case, a panorama app).

Just before the performance. The message projected on the wall is telling us to turn off all cell phones and electronic devices... and I take photos of the sign with my cell phone...

The Brig Beaver arrives in Boston

Kathy Chapman writes-

Yesterday I had the privilege to ride on the Tea Party Ship Beaver in the parade to its new berth at the Tea Party Ship Museum in Fort Point Channel, Boston. Once in place the masts will be stepped and the rigging will be completed.

It was a perfect day, hundreds of people welcomed us.

What a great accomplishment for master shipwright Leon Poindexter (shown close up) and his crew at the Gloucester Marine Railways. Mr. Poindexter is known for his artistry and has worked on many vessels on the National Register of Historic Places as well as serving as the master shipwright for 20th Century Fox to retrofit the tall ship Rose for the Academy Award Winning motion picture Master and Commander starring Russell Crowe.

Live Blogging: The Beaver Passing the Northern Avenue Bridge In Boston On Way To The Tea Party Museum Leon Poindexter Looks On Video from Kathy Chapman and photo Michael Avery

In honor of the anniversary of the start of the American Revolution on April 19th, the new Boston Tea Party Ships Museum welcomes the arrival of the historically accurate vessel the Brig Beaver.

She will be returning to the waters where the Boston Tea Party, "the single most important event leading up to the American Revolution" occurred on the night of December 16, 1773.

The Beaver made the voyage from Gloucester where it received complete renovations at the Gloucester Marine Railways.

Boston Derby Dames Home Opener Saturday March 24th

image

Check out Our Past Coverage and The Official Website for more info

The Boston Derby Dames, Massachusetts only WFTDA sanctioned flat track roller derby team, announces details of their 2012 season schedule this month, with all games to be played at their home base of Shriners Auditorium, Wilmington, MA.

In this their 7th year, BDD has more than 65 skaters on five teams: the Cosmonaughties, Nutcrackers and Wicked Pissahs; a B level team aptly called the Boston B Party and the all-star travel team, the Boston Massacre. As founding member of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (wftda.com), BDD has worked to build and represent the sport on an international level.

As the 2012 national season begins, the Boston Massacre is ranked 7th in the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association’s Eastern Region (wftda.com/rankings). Plus, Derby News Network Power Rankings put Boston in the number 20 spot overall in the country (derbynewsnetwork.com).

Our 2012 season (March–October) is poised to be another heated season with the home teams vying for supremacy—  the four-time champs Wicked Pissahs try to hold on to the Championship Fez Cup from the graceful grip of second-place finishers and 2010 champions the Nutcrackers, while the Cosmonaughties battle for their first-ever trophy.

The Boston Massacre has experienced major transition in players, losing several to retirement but gaining a track full of fresh young blood anxious to prove their mettle in this season’s tough schedule. Training harder than ever before, the Massacre are up to facing a challenging season as they welcome Pennsylvania’s Dutchland, Indy’s Naptown, Cincinnati’s Black Sheep, Maine’s Port Authorities and the ever-popular Montreal New Skids on the Block.

Hoping to make the 2012 WFTDA Championships in Atlanta this fall, a feat they accomplished in 2008, this may be a break out year for Boston’s all-star team as the sport continues to grow in athleticism and its fan base continues to broaden.

Our season opening games in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 broke attendance records. Last year’s 2011 opener sold out and once again left a line of anxious fans buying tickets for the next bout in advance, plus, BDD sold out the first four games of the 2011 season. For 2012, the injection of fresh meat blood combined with the inspiration of dedicated vets promises a season like none other.
