The Weekender: August 9-11

the weekender Time needs to sloooow down just a tiny bit, right? We’re doing our best to live in the present moment and enjoy the heck out of this summer. This weekend is no exception! Here are our top picks:

Spin That Music. This evening, the ICA will be presenting DJs on the Harbor, a special summer series. Tonight’s event will feature Tanlines, a synthetic-pop duo based in Brooklyn.

Sale-abration! Our friend, Melissa, of Shoestring Magazine, is moving and will be hosting a huge moving sale in Somerville this Saturday. Great vintage finds, brand-new wedding gowns, and a skee ball machine are all up for grabs! More info here.

Case of the Blues. We love music festivals! This weekend, the blues will be taking over the North Shore with the Gloucester Blues Festival.

To Market We Go. This is the last weekend to catch the Annual Summer Artisans Market in Lexington. Ceramics, photography, woodwork – so much talent in one place.

August Moon! This weekend, celebrate August with Chinatown’s August Moon Festival. There will be lion dancing (crazy!), martial arts, Chinese traditional dancing, and more.

Do you have an upcoming event that you’d like to see listed on The Weekender? To be considered, send us a note at Have a wonderful weekend!
