REMINDER: TODAY; Papercut Zine Library Event

This is going on until 7:30 tonight. From their site:

Papercut Grand re-opening Party! Sunday, April 18
Featuring: open mic, zine readings, musical performances, food, films, and more!!!!!
226 Pearl St. Somerville, MA
Shows and Past Events

Musical performances taking place at the Democracy Center have been facilitated or booked by Papercut Librarians throughout our history; they have
provided a safe and inclusive, alcohol-free space for
people of all ages to participate in the local music scene. Our shows have also served as a major fund-raising tool for various non-profits from the Greater Boston area. Some of these organizations include Bikes Not Bombs, Boston Skillshare,CISPES, Pets in Need, and AIDS Action.
In 2007, Papercut linked up with local college radio station,Record Hospital, in booking several shows, as well as a small festival. Independent labels such as Ride the Snake have also collaborated with the library, even publishing a quarterly zine to go along with select record releases.
Papercut’s other events have included various zine readings as well as showings of independent movies. We hope to expand further in providing interactive workshops in zine-making and independent publishing.
We are also known to host an occasional rummage sale to raise funds, and this past spring we held our first Bake-Off, with delicious pies from many of our patrons!
Although the library itsself tends to be our focus, librarians strive to host a wide range of events and activities in order to reach out to the various interests of our patrons.

ESMS Savoring East Somerville Celebration!

We're always thrilled when there are celebrations in East Somerville, and this one hosted by East Somerville Main Streets looks like it will be a doozy. Please try to make it out to support East Somerville!

From ESMS: "The Savoring East Somerville Celebration will take place on April 17th, 1-3 pm at the Cross Street Senior Center (165 Broadway). We are opening an exhibition Mark Teiwes' photography from the Savoring East Somerville cookbook with recipe tasting, raffles, and live mariachi music!"

If the cookbook and mariachi music were not enough, an Audio Tour with commentary by cookbook contributors is hosted by Rebecca Novak of ESMS (who helped to gather the collection of recipes) and can be found on!

Print is not dead!: Somerville Scout

Just flipped through the Spring 2010 issue of Somerville Scout, and was once again thoroughly entertained. This edition features a cover story about the Boston Milita womens football team, who have a home opener tonight at 6pm at Dilboy Stadium (110 Alewife Brook Parkway), with a post-game party at On the Hill Tavern (499 Broadway). Plenty of other tidbits of interest in this issue, including mention of the now open Yak and Yeti Nepali restaurant, (supposedly opened in April) at 719 Broadway, in the extended Winter Hill area (ok, it's really Ball Square).
