  MFA's March schedule looks hotter than the weather.
hey kiddos. here's a little Boston-based news for you. i just got a nifty little email telling me about the acts coming up at the MFA (Museum of Fine Arts, for those of you who are acronym-challenged). it's a great venue and they've had some great independent artists run through there, including blog darlings like Psapp and Jose Gonzalez and, if i remember correctly, Seu Jorge. so here's the schedule coming up, for those of you in and around my lovely lovely city:

  • Under Byen with Frida Hyvonen and El Perro del Mar
    Fri, March 2 at 7:30 pm
    Tickets: $12 MFA members, students, and seniors; $15 general admission.

  • - you guys know Frida and El Perro, i'm sure, but Under Byen is probably the biggest band in Denmark and fast rising all over the world from great critical acclaim.
    - - Frida's spiffy myspace as well as the dog of the sea's myspace. and i do mean El Perro del Mar (i'm so bilingual and cultured, i know).

  • Jorge Drexler
    Saturday, March 3 at 7:30 pm
    Tickets: $20 MFA members, students, and seniors; $25 general admission.

  • -"Jorge Drexler's 'Al Otro Lado del Rio' was the first song in Spanish to be nominated for an Academy Award. It won, making Drexler a hero in his native Uruguay. And the attention he got -- has prompted another first. After releasing six previous albums abroad, his next effort, Eco, makes its debut in the United States. – NPR.org"

  • Dean & Britta
    Fri, March 9, 7:30 pm
    Tickets: $14 MFA members, students, and seniors; $18 general admission.

  • -"Last year Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips, formerly of indie favorites Luna, garnered critical praise for their score to the indie film hit "The Squid and the Whale.'"

  • Amiina
    Saturday, March 31, 7:30 pm
    Tickets: $12 MFA members, students, and seniors; $15 general admission.

  • -"This Icelandic quartet, who are also Sigur Ros' string section, wrap ambient-electronic textures around their classical-based arrangements to create an intimate sound that is gauzy and gorgeously melodic. Their new single Seoul is now out on line, and a full-length album will be released spring 2007."

    now go out there and enjoy! i demand you have fun in the month of March.
