A movie, perhaps some music, maybe even a bit of dancing – all can add some spice to the already pleasant evenings of summer. Listed below are a few summer series that bring the old and the new, the classic and the edgy, right to our neighborhood.
“Summer in the City” at the Boston Harbor Hotel, 70 Rowes Wharf: Enjoy live concerts, al fresco dining and classic movies on the big screen four nights a week from now through the first week of September. Tuesday evenings feature Soul music; Wednesdays showcase Rat Pack tunes; Thursdays it’s the Blues; and on Fridays, cinema (including, for example, The African Queen on July 17th and Young Frankenstein the next week)! The bands play from 6:00 – 10:00 pm, and movies start at dusk.
“Wavelengths” at the Institute of Contemporary Art, 100 Northern Avenue: A wonderful selection of waterfront concerts and D.J. nights awaits. Doors open at 6:30 pm for the ICA’s new Friday music series. They are giving the stage over to both well-established and newly-blossoming acts whose music spans an exciting style spectrum.
“Lunch Breaks, Dance Parties and DJs” at Lawn on D, 420 D Street: Take a lunch break between noon and 2:00 pm any (or every) Friday through October 9th, and head over to hear concerts presented by the prestigious Berklee College of Music’s Summer in the City program. Until the end of July, Friday nights feature D Street Dance Parties, where everyone, regardless of age or dance experience, comes together for fun. Amazing DJs play a range of tunes from 6:00 – 9:00 pm to get people in the groove. And on Saturdays, check out the local DJs, musicians and music industry luminaries sharing rock, r&b, punk and more. Beer and wine is available for purchase, as is food from Lincoln Tavern. There are even food trucks set to stop by. Saturday evening events begin at 6:30 or 7:00. Look at the calendar for updated information.
“Mayor Walsh’s Movie Nights” at Moakley Park, 1005 Columbia Road: The Boxtrolls will be shown under the stars in one of South Boston’s lovely parks on Monday, August 10th. Presented by the Boston Parks and Recreation Department and Northeastern University, in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Tourism, Sports and Entertainment, all movies in this family-friendly series – held in a different park each week — begin at dusk.
