As the second-to-last person in the Boston area to hear this (Kate told me, and I told my husband, Paul, which makes him the last — but he was in Chicago yesterday, which gives him an excuse. Well, whatever…), I want to ensure that you, blog reader, are in the know: U2 will be playing tonight at nearby Davis Square’s Somerville Theater. No stadium pyrotechnics needed (or desirable) in the 900-seat venue.
I hope Bono and co. will take advantage of their visit to explore the Museum of Bad Art, conveniently located within the theater. During our first visit to MOBA, my daughter, Kayla, and I laughed until tears trickled down our faces. It wasn’t mean-spirited laughter at the “art,” but rather mirthful appreciation for the well-crafted explanatory descriptions next to each piece. Ordinarily, you need a movie ticket to enter MOBA, but I suspect allowances would be made for the band.
This is my second post within the day, and neither had to do with the task that the staff is tackling so assiduously in the back office. Rest assured — we’re making progress. Roxana just printed the first batch of letters, which she and Kate are proofreading.
