NOODLING AROUND

Brighton’s New Noodle Joint Goes Thusly

Let’s see if Brighton’s mysterious new noodle joint meets our “cult Asian spot” criteria:

—Minimal decorations: check
—A constant wait: check
—Hand-pulled noodles and cumin lamb burgers: check
—Prices that appear to be a joke but are, in fact, really that low: check

Congrats, MDM. You made it.

Saturday
It’s an Icelandic Rock Invasion. Ha.
THE ICELAND COMETH

It’s an Icelandic Rock Invasion. Ha.

You may ask yourself what Iceland has ever done for you. Well, Iceland has dispatched two of its finest musical acts—Kaleo and Beebee and the Bluebirds, specifically—to join two local bands for a gratis show at the Middle East this weekend. That’s what it’s done for you.

Sunday
A Burlesque Ode to the Ides of March
IDES AND GO SEEK

A Burlesque Ode to the Ides of March

Julius Caesar left this earth 2,059 years ago this Sunday. So in honor of... that, Oberon’s assembling a bunch of burlesque ladies to remove the majority of their clothing on stage. Audience toga-wearing is encouraged. Audience toga-removal is not.

Tuesday
Corned Beef, Whiskey and Ping-Pong
PONG STORY SHORT

Corned Beef, Whiskey and Ping-Pong

Commonwealth’s celebrating St. Patrick’s Day just like they do in the old country: with a 64-person ping-pong tournament. A ticket grants you a spot in the tourney, an Irish whiskey drink and snacks like corned beef sliders. There cannot not be corned beef.
