Our friend Boston jazz WGBH broadcasting stalwart Eric Jackson is having his weekday hours slashed & Steve Schwartz has had his show axed altogether. Sign this petition and tell GBH brass you're not taking this sitting down. This is part of their general trend to make the station more 'NPR-generic' with less local musical programming. SAVE JAZZ ON WGBH NOW!

Sunday 2 September @ Outpost, 3pm by donation 
Jack Finnegan, story-teller presents “City Love Song”
This autumn I will deliver free storytelling performances in 30 cities around America, a tour that marks the third and final cycle of "City Love Song," and which will conclude with a return to the Off Broadway stage in New York City. The story is a traveler's tale of our worldly neighborhood, and is drawn from a global tour produced last summer--the second cycle in "City Love Song"--in which a traveler's tale of America was presented in the public squares of 13 cities on 6 continents.
The story itself is a lyrical, philosophical celebration of life in its many forms, and while it is safe for children it is intended for adults. The piece runs approximately 75 minutes and I am available for Q&A, if desired.

 50/50 is comprised of Mark Chenevert on tenor sax and clarinet (Hot Tamale Brass Band, Willie Alexander, Chandler Travis) and Pedro Malaver on drums ( Bentmen, Leo Quintero), in a high energy, stream of consciousness journey based mostly in jazz and improvisation, hitting as many other cultural icons as possible along the way, i.e. pop, rock, klezmer, bluegrass, funk. You might call it "free jazz for the non jazz fan"; you'll probably hear something you recognize.
