The Weekender: March 3-5


The chill is back this weekend!! We are planning to cozy up for winter walks in our warmest jackets and get our favorite soup bubbling on the stove when we come home. A few ideas for this coming weekend:

First Friday. It’s the first weekend in March! Tonight head over to the South End for the SoWa Artists’ Guild First Friday event. Over 70 artists open their studio doors between 5pm and 9pm, and we love chatting and seeing what people are working on. Plus, local transformative fashion brand Paridaez will be at the Adelson Gallery between 7-9pm, and check out an interesting exhibition bridging the creepy and the cute at the Abigail Ogilvy Gallery across the hall.

Blackstar. It’s been just over a year since David Bowie’s death, and tonight a memorial concert at MIT features the entirety of his final album, Blackstar, arranged for a full orchestra. “Bowie represented, to my generation, in a way that is hard to explain, this kind of model for what it meant to be an artist or creative person,” says Evan Ziporyn, who will also present a novel arrangement of Satie’s Gymnopédies. Sounds like an inspiring night! Limited tickets available at the door.

Creative Classes. The Pop-Up Makery is an event space at The Street in Chestnut Hill hosting workshops with some of our favorite crafters and artists over the next month. This Saturday, join the Paint Bar to paint your own picture of a peaceful Boston Common walk. Future events include learning to knit with The Third Piece, trying out calligraphy with Sip + Script, and creating terrariums with Niche. See the full schedule here.

A Night at the Ballet. Check out Artifact at the Boston Ballet before it closes on March 5. This show was really intriguing and different from any other ballet we’ve seen. Read more here.
