About Brighton
map
The area of Brighton was established in the late 17th century and was first known as "Little Cambridge". The residents acquired legal separation from Cambridge in 1807 and officially named the town Brighton. The town was then officially annexed to the City of Boston in 1874 and it remains a part of Boston today.

In post colonial days Brighton was home to agricultural plots and stockyards, but with the extension of the street car lines in the 1800s came residential growth. Soon houses and apartments were built all across the neighborhoods.

Brighton is primarily populated by graduate students and young professionals. Along Washington Street you will find small family businesses and Saint Elizabeth's Hospital - reputed as one of the finest hospitals in the northeast.

Brighton is host to the Bryman Institute, Saint John's Seminary and part of Boston College. Nearby you will find some of the finest institutes of higher learning in the country including Boston University, Harvard University and MIT.

The Comedy of Errors

What happens when a group of traveling side show performers decide to mount one of Shakespeare's first comedies for a lark? A ribald romp of mistaken identities ensues. One of Shakespeare's earliest, shortest, and funniest plays, and his first commissioned work, The Comedy of Errors takes us on a farcical ride where anxieties lock horns with the transformative power of love. Despite the absurdity, we are left with an awareness of mortality, human frailty, and a lingering question: how is the sense of self undermined when the world fails to recognize you?

Sep 24, 2014: 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm (Wed)

"The Comedy of Errors"
The Comedy of Errors: Sideshow-Style Shakespeare Production

Classic drama gets a carny makeover when a traveling band of sideshow performers decides to mount The Comedy of Errors in this inventive and colorful production from Actors' Shakespeare Project. Fast, fantastic and full of slapstick, Comedy of Errors seems ready-made for the Midway. Shakespeare's first commissioned work, this lively comedy follows two sets of twins separated at birth who circulate in the same city for one crazy day, leaving a wake of confusion and craziness. By the time "all is made right," the audience is left with an awareness of mortality, questions of identity -- and a few really killer puns. David R. Gammons directs at Brighton High School.

Matt Stubb's Wednesday Night Blues JAM
As a guitarist and composer, Matt Stubbs is a force to be reckoned with, earning him a well-deserved reputation as one of the blues scene rising young stars. The artistry of his guitar work is unmistakable, projecting just right combination of subtle and soulful tone into his music. Around the Greater Boston area, his infamous blues jams with Chris Rivelli (drums) and Sven Larson (bass) have been epic, bringing talent such as Monster Mike Welch, Lydia Warren, Dave Maxwell, Chris Fitz, Nick Moss, and many others. We are thrilled to be able to bring this same energy to the audiences of Smoken Joe’s with great performers from all over coming in each week in July, August, and September.

Sarah Berry: "Castoffs & Containers" Curated Art Exhibition

Unbound Visual Arts, Inc., and Athan's Bakery and Cafe are pleased to present the opening of Sarah Berry: Castoffs & Containers at the Athan’s Café Art Gallery in Brighton. This exhibition features Sarah Berry’s mixed media pieces that combine her photographs with objects - new or used – either previously discarded or destined to become castoffs. Her photography is photojournalistic in style, capturing scenes in clear detail often with a dash of bold color. The addition of objects relating to each photograph illustrates our attempts to contain our environment, our spirit, and our physical being. They prompt us to consider that, eventually, these objects will be discarded, becoming castoffs in the World.

Light and visually appealing, her work gently, and sometimes not so gently, reminds us of the impact our ‘stuff’ has on our unique and wondrous planet, Earth. Sarah’s repurposing of everyday items hints to us to imagine ways of reusing our containers and castoffs. For more information, please visit: https://sites.google.com/a/unboundvisualarts.org/uva-website/exhibitions/athans-cafe-art-gallery.

David Maxwell’s Maximum Blues
David Maxwell has amassed an enormous resume throughout the years playing piano with some of the greatest, well- known musicians in the blues such Levon Helm, Jimmy Witherspoon, Lowell Fulsom, Junior Wells, Hubert Sumlin and many others. David plays many styles of blues, jazz and improvised music, but he is best known for his soulful virtuosity and unmatched ability to reach the heart of post-war Chicago Blues. Through his work, he has gained the respect of artists, critics and fans and has established a reputation as one of the finest blues pianists alive. David has performed in major festivals, theaters and clubs in North America, Europe, Scandinavia, Morocco, Israel, and Japan, and keeps busy today playing, recording, and teaching (and nurturing his interests in jazz, ethnic and improvised music). He continues to be a touring band member with Freddie King, James Cotton, Jimmy Rogers, Ronnie Earl and the Broadcasters, Bonnie Raitt, and Otis Rush.

Bees Deluxe
Bees Deluxe is a full-tilt, acid blues/funk/rock collective comprised of Boston-based musicians. Their unique repertoire include over three sets of floorboard-stomping originals and 60s, 70s, and 80s covers from Little Feat, The Meters, Billie Holiday, Derek Trucks, Donny Hathaway, Steely Dan, B.B.King, ZZ Top, Robben Ford, Muddy Waters, Bonnie Raitt, Curtis Mayfield, Albert King, Bobby ‘Blue’ Bland, Jimi Hendix, SoulLive, Roy Buchanan, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, among many others. Taking the road less traveled, they discover and share off-the-beaten songs and instrumentals and fuse them into their own original works. They dare to be risk-takers on stage, digging deep into the vaults of blues/jazz antiquity. The result is an effortless take no- prisoners-approach that wittingly captures the audience’s hearts.

Paul Rishell and Annie Raines Thursdays in September
In September, blues fans will be in for a rare treat as Smoken Joe’s presents Paul Rishell and Annie Raines for a special artist residency on Thursday nights. Although they have become known for their close attention to pre-war acoustic blues styles, Paul and Annie first found their musical common ground in a Chicago/Texas-style blues band. Paul and Annie are equally passionate about their craft and devoted to the study and performance of a wide range of blues styles, from the syncopated acoustic guitar wizardry of Blind Lemon Jefferson and Son House to Chicagoan “Little” Walter Jacob’s swinging amplified harmonica. Paul has reached what Boston Phoenix writer Ted Drozdowski called “a place deep and resonant as Robert Johnson’s crossroads, where authenticity, soul, and a sense of purpose and commitment ring out in every note he sings and plays.” Annie has added vocals, mandolin, piano, and other instruments to her musical arsenal, while being recognized by top professionals and fans worldwide as the “queen of the blues harmonica.” Says blues legend Pinetop Perkins, “She plays so good it hurts!
