Things to do for August 27, 2015

The Weekender

Pork, Walking Sculptures and Game of Thrones Burlesque

The weekend is pouring some out for Don Orsillo.

Thursday
It’s an Indie Film Festival, Obviously
FLICK AND CHOOSE

It’s an Indie Film Festival, Obviously

Your clues:

—A documentary about the 1985 Clue VCR Mystery Game.
—A film set in the Boston indie rock scene.
—Something meta and directed by James Franco.

Yep. The Massachusetts Independent Film Festival is back. It’s at the Somerville and Brattle theaters and... you won’t need 3D glasses.

Friday
Giant Walking Sculptures at City Hall
BEAUTY AND THE BEESTS

Giant Walking Sculptures at City Hall

So your date at No. 9 went well. You could 1) call it a night, or 2) take them to see two giant wooden sculptures called Strandbeests that were created by a Dutch artist and will literally be walking around City Hall and Dewey Square tomorrow night. Either way: weird.

Aug 28, 11am-1pm, City Hall Plaza; 4:30-7pm, Dewey Square

Saturday
Uniform’s in a 30% Off Mood
THREAD TO RIGHTS

Uniform’s in a 30% Off Mood

You’ll start hearing words soon. Words like “layering” and “sweater” and “pumpkin spice.” Ignore those. Instead, head straight to Uniform, where their remaining summer stock of soft tees and lightweight jackets is 30% off. Still summer in there.

Ongoing, Uniform, 511 Tremont St, 617-247-2360

Sunday
Game of Thrones, Meet Burlesque
THRONE TO PICK

Game of Thrones, Meet Burlesque

Fun fact: only one Game of Thrones–themed burlesque show is personally approved by George R. R. Martin. Funner fact: said burlesque show is about to grace the Davis Square Theatre this Sunday, with... well, probably the same amount of undress as the show.

Tuesday
A DJ and Far Too Much Pork
SWINE BY ME

A DJ and Far Too Much Pork

Con: summer’s ending. Pro: here comes an end-of-summer party at La Brasa, where $20 gets you a drink, a pig roast buffet and a live DJ. It’s how the pig would have wanted it.
