The June and July installments of Cafe Raqs were cancelled.

Here are some alternate ideas:

I'll try to be at the Armory anyway, since I know that not everyone will get this message. Maybe we can go out to dinner nearby. There are some great restaurants, but where we go may be dictated by the size of the group.


check out some visiting and local musicians at Johny D's:

(R&B, Urban Soul) Winsome, wicked and witty, Chic Gamine embody the ‘60s girl-group vibe all grown up and living in a new century. Wall-of-sound harmonies, hip-shaking beats – these women could be straight out of Motown, before you throw in the curveball of French pop and four rotating lead-singWers. By all the laws of the music business, this group is like the unicorn – it probably shouldn’t exist, let alone be performing at the Olympics and winning Juno Awards. And yet, here they are, soon to release their official U.S. debut, a group singing soulful, captivating four-part songs that artfully span the musical map.

In 2007, three Winnipeg-based friends and former band-mates Ariane Jean, Andrina Turenne and Annick Bremault recruited Montreal drummer and percussionist Sacha Daoud, and a fourth singer, Winnipegger Alexa Dirks, for a fresh new project. Utterly seductive, Chic Gamine’s Canadian debut album teased with traces of Daoud’s Brazilian roots winding their way underneath the irresistible vocal hook of rhythm and blues, nouveau-pop and vintage soul. Chic Gamine alchemized these mixed elements into compelling musical magic.

(Rock and Pop) Husband and wife pop team, Sophia Cacciola & Michael Epstein just may be the hardest working musicians in Boston. Performing in a variety of bands (Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling, The Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library, Darling Pet Munkee, Space Balloons and more), they are both prolific songwriters and very talented performers. Come enjoy their perfect pop potpouri!

Tickets $12.00 each at

also, there's Karaoke at the Rosebud Diner on Summer Street in Davis Square Somerville at 8pm. That's always fun.
