The Midnight Mystery Cabaret at Nick's Bar and Restaurant (Saturday, March 31): Perhaps a bit unfair to include this, as it was an event I hosted, but – after a scorching hot jazz set by the Russo Brothers – the stage was graced by an eclectic cavalcade of performers, representing a host of shows and organizations from around the city, including the Dirty Gerund Poetry Series, 7 Hills Slam, the Federation of Belligerent Writers, Queens of Worcester, Comedy in the Cabaret and Commutiny Hip-Hop. Afterwards, well passed midnight, I brought on Eddie Japan for an absolutely electrifying set. There was, of course, a point with this show ... two of 'em, actually. The first was to shine a light on some of the Worcester scene's more offbeat corners, to illustrate that there's plenty here to explore, and then to introduce Worcester to an act from nearby that I feel is worth their knowing. I intend to do a bit more of this, in the future. Indeed, things are in the works.
