Somerville welcomes all to celebrate the last weeks of winter with a ‘Fire & Ice’ style afternoon & evening. Somerville Arts Council surely knows how to leave an epic mark on the end of the season!
This weekend on Saturday, March 1st, in Union Square Plaza, the awesome festivities will begin at 3:00pm, lasting until 6:00pm. Gaze in awe at the talented A Different Spin fire spinners brightening up the plaza and savor the night with their glowing, lively performance. Take it down to a cooler notch with Brilliant Ice Sculptures’ Don Chapelle, getting an exclusive look at him in action carving his gorgeous masterpieces right before your eyes. This is a show you certainly do not want to miss. Family-friendly crafts and activities will include “ice bowling,” SVB’s sand art and Next Step Living Inc.’s “recycled lava lamp craft.”
Morse street in Rogers Park is one of Chicago's most underrated and under appreciated places to get loaded. There is a number of bars and restaurants all conveniently clustered around the Morse red line stop without all the woo girls and 28 year old softball fanatics you usually run into around Addison. Besides the reasonably priced low key watering holes and gyro restaurants, Morse street also has a fantastic venue that hosts not only some top notch musical acts, but also theater, and a mixed media gallery as well.
As if to match the cobble stone side streets around Morse street, the Mayne Stage has the appearance of one of America's early 20th century theaters. Everything from the massive sign out front with letters written with light bulbs, to the theater with its lounge tables and blue velvet curtains is reminiscent of a cabaret theater. It's a throw back to an age, an age which most people are from are most likely dead.

Transmission, the weekly Rock n Roll party that takes place each Thursday at Hotel Chantelle was in full swing last night, as NYC band Grand Electric took the stage and gave the crowd a taste of pure, unaltered Rock n' Roll.

On Thursday night Pacha was the place to be amidst all of the Superbowl madness happening around New York City. The laid back, but very hip attitude of the club creates an experience that is most fun for those looking to have a great time but not get too wild and crazy!
The music was a nice mixture of what you would perhaps hear on NYC's Power 105.1 or Hot 97. DJ Riz and DJ TJ Mizell (Run DMC's Jam Master Jay's son) were on the 1's and 2's for the evening. So if you enjoy Hip-Hop, then last night would have been the night for you.
Where do you usually go to catch live performances around Chicago? The Rivera? The Metro? Or maybe you head to Second City?

Brazilian Girls provides a musical experience lost to the mainstream and many other trending bands out now. Their repertoire consists of reggae, jazz, boss nova and electronica elements. The lead-singer, Sabina Sciubba, is mysteriously captivating as she dominates with a "performance art" force usually wearing outlandish outfits with props, singing in multiple languages and providing us with her natural sex appeal that can't be ignored.
The band recorded 3 albums, in 2005 (Brazilian Girls), in 2006 (Talk to La Bomb), and in 2008 (New York City). And were grammy-nominated for Best Dance Recording in 2009 for "New York City." The band went on a hiatus in 2011 because there were rumors of a breakup. Now they are back with a North American tour, Sabina will be releasing her first solo album called "Toujours" on February 18th and the band is on their way to recording a new album, as well.
