CALENDAR: The week in North Adams from Rod Bunt

This Week in North Adams:

Coming up this Thursday, October 6 in the MASS MoCA Cinema Lounge at 8:00 PM Cane Toads: An Unnatural History. This film documents a particularly absurd moment in the annals of 20th century human folly: the introduction of Hawaiian sugar-cane toads to Australia to counter pests. The massive beasts bread like wildfire, ate everything in their path (except the cane grubs they were brought in to eradicate), and generally laid waste to the ecosystem. The film, full of eccentric Aussies with tall tales to tell, is uproariously funny. Club B-10. $6 Call 413 MoCA-111 for additional information. www.massmoca.org

There's another Farmer's Market this Saturday Morning, October 8th the Saint Anthony's Municipal Parking Lot, across from the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art on Marshall Street in North Adams. Fresh produce and other locally grown items will be offered for sale beginning at 8:00 AM. Although the market is open until noon, the public is urged to get to the market early, as some of the most desirable items are sold quickly. The weekly event is backyard-gardener-friendly. Local folks with even a small amount of produce are certainly welcome to join the sale. Registration forms are available by calling the Mayor's Office of Tourism, 6 west Main Street, North Adams at 413-664-6180, or by registering the morning of market - day between 7:30 - 8:00 AM and paying a $2.00 plot fee. Just check in with Everett Randall, Market Master.

MASS MoCA Alternative Cabaret features Shivaree on Saturday October 8, at 8:00 PM.
The twisted torch singer Ambrosia Parsley and her band Shivaree (a word meaning drunken serenade) bring to mind both Tom Waits and the Cowboy Junkies with songs that are brooding, sharp little gems of Americana storytelling. Delivering her lyrics in a voice of rare poignancy Parsley is a riveting performer. - You won't be able to take your eyes off her. Club B-10. $14 adv/$17 day of performance. Call 413 MoCA-111 for additional information. www.massmoca.org

Just thought I'd let you know about a site where you can make over $800 a month in extra income. Go to this site   MAKE MONEY NOW  and put in your zip code..... up will pop several places where you can get paid to secret shop, take surveys, etc.  It's free.  I found several and I live in a small town!
