Weekend Going-Out Guide for Cambridge & Somerville

We’re finally going to have a, hopefully, precipitation-free weekend with some sunlight. It’s still going to be freezing cold, however, so here are a few warm indoor ways to enjoy your weekend.

Friday

Using 50,000 lumens of projection systems, Visualize Somerville is bringing you the chance to climb a waterfall, a picturesque mountain peak, or even a lava flow all in one night in an event hosted by BKB and Aeronaut Brewing. Featuring climbing on projection mapping, live DJs, and an art show highlighting Somerville and Boston-based artists, this one-night experience will add another dimension to your climbing experience.

Bluegrass Fridays are back in the Café at the Center for Arts at the Armory in Somerville. The event is free and you can either listen to the host musicians play or jump in with your own instrument.

Saturday

Don’t miss the artists behind “Fields of Viewpoints” talk about their work at the Kathryn Schultz Gallery in Cambridge. Saturday represents the last day of this interesting collaborative exhibit that features “four artists whose work reflects various ranges, prospects, scans, scoped, observations, interpretations, and involvement. This show is part of the Cambridge Art Association’s 70th exhibition year.

Later on Saturday evening, Altan, one of the world’s finest traditional Irish bands, will transport your mind to the beautiful rolling hills of Ireland at the Somerville Theater.

If you’d rather be transported to the romantic streets of Paris, head over to the First Church in Cambridge to experience the tunes of Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra of Boston.

Sunday

Cap off the weekend with some American classics presented  by the acclaimed song duo Valerie Anastasio & Tim Harbold in their new show, In the Mood – A Time Capsule of Classics from 1939. Valerie & Tim showcase a remarkable year in film and song with songs from The Wizard of Oz, along with beloved song hits of the year including In the Mood, All the Things You Are, Good Morning, And the Angels Sing, Sunrise Serenade, Beer Barrel Polka, and Lydia the Tattooed Lady.
