Resistance Mic! Midterms Edition

Oberon, 2 Arrow St, Cambridge, MA



All tickets $10. Special option $25 ticket includes a copy of "The Resistance Issue" of Pangyrus Literary Magazine, featuring many of the writers performing in the series.

It's the midterm edition of Resistance Mic at OBERON, with an amazing lineup: spoken-word poet Regie Gibson, memoirist Sarah Sweeney, poet Jennifer Jean, and activist Timothy Patrick McCarthy, with music by Afro-Mediterranean funk and jazz combo Atlas Soul. Then comes the launch of "The Resistance Issue," with readings by Grace Talusan, Sonya Larson, Fred Marchant, Anne Champion, and more! Featuring Resistance cocktails, including the Moscow Mueller, and a "send-a-haiku-to-the-White-House" contest.  ARTISTS PERFORMING TRUTH TO POWER The 2016 election inspired a broad-based Resistance not seen in the United States in decades. People from all walks of life have been protesting, marching, mobilizing, and organizing in an effort to take back the country and create a more compassionate and just world. Artists are vital to this work. This fall, the American Repertory Theater, in collaboration with the literary magazine Pangyrus, welcomes the second season of Resistance Mic!, a series of intimate, curated evenings where a diverse collective of artists will take the stage to perform truth to power in these troubled times. Launched on November 9, 2017—the one-year anniversary of the day after the 2016 election—Resistance Mic! is part of the A.R.T. of Human Rights series, an ongoing collaboration between the American Repertory Theater and Harvard Kennedy School’s Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, Hosted by Timothy Patrick McCarthy. During 2018/19, Resistance Mic! will take place on Tuesdays (September 25, November 13, February 19, and April 16) at 8PM with a 7:30PM door time at OBERON, A.R.T.’s second stage.

Atlas Soul's acoustic set

Club Passim, 47 Palmer St., Cambridge, MA

Small World - Big Ears New Music Series 

Atlas Soul plays a rare acoustic set at 8 PM

Orkestra Marhaba plays at 7 PM

Monday October 23, 2017   7PM to 9 PM

2 Bands 1 Price: $15

Welcome to our new series, Small World - Big Ears!  As technology continues to advance and make our world seemingly smaller and smaller, there are also many ways in which we seem to be drawn futher apart and more isolated from one another than ever before. The idea behind Passim's new monthly music series "Small World - Big Ears" is to bring together musicians who play in a wide variety of musical traditions from around the globe to share their music and culture with the Passim community. We hope that as we are able to broaden our abilities to listen, we'll find common ground within the language we all speak, the langauge of the heart: music.  We hope you will come out and be part of these shows on the last Monday of each month in a great listening room.
