The Insiders: Old and new music and cars
Concord Insider's Ben Conant and Keith Testa (SAMANTHA GORESH / Monitor staff)
Bleep. Blorp. Robot noises. Okay, maybe we can’t do it justice in print, but those crazy sounds sound pretty cool in real life (you know, when they are actually sounds). If you’re into the whole “space robot mating call” genre of music, you’ll love tonight’s event at the Kimball-Jenkins Estate. Concordian David Kontak (look up our Insider feature on him from years past) will be showing off his homemade experimental instruments – they are indescribable and really a sight to behold! The show will also feature a bevy of video artists displaying their latest audio-visual achievements. A $5 donation is suggested for entry to the 8 p.m. show. For more information, visit kimballjenkins.com.
Elsewhere, it’s National Plug-In Day at the Concord Farmer’s Market. Capitol Street will be populated by a fleet of Teslas today from 8 to 11 a.m. Come down and rub the hoods of these electric cars and see if your hair stands on end!
If you prefer old-school American muscle to high-voltage automobiles, there’s a classic car field day at Presidential Oaks from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. today, complete with lunch from the grill.
Head down to the Capitol Center today at 12:55 p.m. and imbibe one bourbon, one scotch and Onegin (first two are optional). Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin runs today as part of the Live From the Met series. Want to take in this classic opera? Tickets are $26 for adults, $22 for seniors and $15 for students.
