Weekend Watching September-2-2015

Okay, this song may be a bit dramatic, but we’re officially in September. The Manchester School District started classes today, and Labor day weekend, the last hurrah of summer, will be upon us in a few days. Not to mention that this is our last weekend watching post for the year! So keep scrolling for ways to grab hold of summer in downtown. We’ll see you next year!

We try our hardest to ensure the accuracy of these events, but please be sure to call ahead to confirm dates, times, location, and cost!

 FRIENDS FIGHTING CANCER 5K

The Friends Fighting Cancer 5K run started in 2008 as a way for friends to support a fellow runner as he went through cancer. They wanted to take action against cancer—to DO something about this terrible disease that had struck their friend and touches so many. It seemed especially fitting to create a race that raised money to benefit the Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. Join them as we support and honor family and friends battling cancer.

TIM BARRY LIVE @ THE SHASKEEN

The first time one of his friend’s fathers saw singer/songwriter Tim Barry perform, he summed up his thoughts with a Yogi Berra-worthy declaration: “You’re old-timey in a modern way.” That’s a near perfect description for the artist who sums up his latest solo release, Lost & Rootless in a single word: WOODEN. “That’s the feel that I was going for when I picked the songs,” says Barry. “There’s violin, voice, a wooden resonator guitar…there’s a very subtle electric bass on one track, but otherwise I wanted to do a wooden record.” To get your tickets now, click here!

CHROMATROPIC LIVE @ PENUCHE’S

Chromatropic is as unique as their name would suggest. While the Brooklyn band’s lineage can be traced from a wide variety of musical influences, the end result is difficult to categorize. Combining visionary instrumentation and songwriting with improvisation and exploration, Chromatropic enjoys the absolute sonic freedom that is only granted to music without vocals.
