BAFFLED BY ODDITIES
Demetri Martin stops by the Egyptian Room on Thursday, April 21, to regale audiences with his sharp wit. Marc sat down with the savvy comedian to talk about his approach to humor before he hits the stage. BY MARC D. ALLAN
MUSIC TO SPARK BY
J. Brookinz, the local producer who brought us The Gateway Drug: THC, is unleashing another reefer-heavy record to follow up last year’s release. Celebrate with Brookinz & Co. Wednesday night at Rock Lobster. BY SCOTT SHOGER
CORRECTIONS In our review last week of Joffrey Ballet at Clowes, we misidentified the first name of Patricia McBride as Peggy. We regret the error. Our news feature last week (“Is our water quality?”) mistakenly indicated that the planned Deep Rock Tunnel Connector would run to Belmond, Ind. The tunnel will in fact connect to the Belmont Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant in Indianapolis.
