The Teseracte Players of Boston have many destinations on our travels across New England. We have been performing at the Arisia Science Fiction Convention in Boston for over 10 years. In recent years, we have been featured every night of the Arisia convention. We make several stops during the year at CinemaSalem (Salem, MA) performing as part of the North Shore Pride festivities (June) and performing shows during mid-October. We have been performing at Mohegan Sun in the Cabaret Theater (Uncasville, CT) for 7 years and have made it our last destination of our Halloween season. More recently we've performed at: Entertainment Cinemas (Leominster, MA) and Apple Cinemas (Cambridge, MA).

Rocky Horror has always been our focus however; over the past decade we began to explore other “shadow casting” possibilities. Joss Whedon's: "Buffy: Once More with Feeling,” the internet musical, "Dr Horrible's Sing-along Blog," which included "Commentary! The Musical," for several years. (Commentary! The Musical, Retired, Arisia 2014) We debuted a "shadow casting" first with "The Nightmare Before Christmas" in December of 2011(Debut: Cinema Salem. Featured: Arisia 2011) and The Princes Bride in 2015 (Debut: Entertainment Cinemas, Leominster. Featured: Arisia 2016 and TBA).

The Teseracte Players of Boston have had some home theaters over the last 20+ years, but we have always been a traveling cast. We have done some amazing shows in a numerous amount of destinations including; Chestnut Hill, Hollywood Hits (Danvers, MA), Coolidge Corner, Red River Theater (Concord, NH) , The Brattle Street Theater (Harvard Square) Trinity College (Hartford, CT), Regent Theater (Arlington, MA), Lucky Dog Music Hall (Worcester, MA), and many more.

We have many projects in development and many more shows coming to a theater near you! (If you live in New England) We'll keep you posted!

People's Blues of Richmond

People's Blues of Richmond

People’s Blues of Richmond (or PBR as they are affectionately referred to by their fans) is one of those rare three-pieces that somehow conjures the sonic power and visual intensity of a thunderstorm. Think Jimi Hendrix Experience meets MC5. They take psychedelic blues rock to a different level with a lyrical element seldom found in the genre. Think Bob Dylan writing lyrics for Black Sabbath songs. It’s hard to imagine until it’s right in your face. Then it’s hard to forget.

Dub Apocalypse Double IPA Beer Release

Dub Apocalypse Double IPA Beer Release

Dub Apocalypse is an instrumental dub reggae band from Boston, MA. The lineup includes Tommy Benedetti (drums), Timo Shanko (Sax/Bass), Johnny Trama (gtr), Van Martin (gtr) and Aaron Bellamy (bass). They have created their own unique sound that fuses the militant toughness of Sly and Robbie, and Scientist productions, with a balanced twin guitar attack, explosive Coltrane inspired sax, and a healthy dose of improvisation. The band plays a mix of classic Jamaican tunes and dub plates from the 70s and early 80s, mixed with their own compositions. Featuring current and former members of John Brown's Body, Ghosts of Jupiter, Morphine and G Love and Special Sauce, DA brings decades of combined experience from clubs, theaters and festivals around the globe to the stage every night. Drummer Tommy Benedetti (JBB) formed the band in 2007 and was quickly joined by longtime musical brothers, Johnny Trama on guitar, and Timo Shanko, a dual threat, who is an equal force on bass and tenor sax. In the past couple of years, DA has solidified into a consistent lineup with the addition of Van Martin and Aaron Bellamy. This has inspired the band to concentrate more on writing and recording original material, while still maintaining a busy performance schedule, further crafting their deadly, unique sound. DA maintains a busy schedule in New England with appearances at many festivals, clubs and pubs. They have 2 successful long running residencies, won a Boston Music Award in 2011 for Best International Act, and were recently named "One of the 10 Local Acts You Have to Hear Now" by the Improper Bostonian. The Dub Apocalypse live show is a soul shakin' throwdown, and they invite you along for the journey.

Jill McCracken x The Hats
Apr

Jill McCracken x The Hats

Doors at 7pm
Music at 8pm
$5 cover at the door

Jill McCracken is an indie soul songstress whose music is a celebration of feeling— anything that she’s got on the inside (and there’s a lot on the inside), is triumphantly released out into the world. Though Jill’s songs catch the ear as pop tunes, touching heavily on classic soul and Motown influences, a closer listen lets the audience know that these aren’t as simple as ABC, 123; there’s conflict that lies just beneath the surface of the songs, as nodded to by Jill’s sweet and savory lyrics. This isn’t a masquerade of beauty; it’s a celebration of Jill’s honest-to-goodness truth of life and love— not only the beautiful, terrible, horrible parts, but especially all the in-betweens.

Inspired by a destructive and loss-heavy apartment fire in June of 2016, the Hats have cleaned up, streamlined and will be self-releasing their first full-length record since 2014 this year. Surprisingly, the band, who continue to live together, see the fire as something of a blessing, offering a chance to start fresh with a focus on the more important aspects of their music. The album will be the first to be released as The Hats. It will feature deeper, more eclectic lyrical subjects, and more intricate arrangements from singer/songwriter, Patrik Gochez, as well as the lead vocals of keyboardist, Brittany Laine, and lead guitarist, Joey Pierog. Original members, bassist Brenden Harisiades, and drummer, Bobby Rice, offer a rhythm section more solid and creative than ever before.

Originally established as ‘Pat & the Hats’ in 2012 to support the release of Gochez’ chamber-pop debut, Heavy Loader, the band released both a full-length record (Fake it till You Make a Hit 2014) and a follow up EP (Pat & the Hats 2016). They quickly became a regionally recognized name receiving a New England Music Award for ‘Best Pop Act’ in 2014, a nomination in the same category in 2015, and accolades from regional press outlets in NH, MA, VT and beyond. “The band has a polyglot of influences, from late ‘70s punk-pop to more modern acts like the Flaming Lips, all rooted in classic sensibility… (M. Witthaus The Hippo Press).” The diversity in the indie/pop-rock band’s sound nudged them into a variety of showcases and festivals, sharing bills with Lucius, Lake Street Dive, and the late Charles Bradley. 2018 holds no lack of momentum for the freshly rebranded Hats, as they prepare for the release of their next full-length album.

Fire Cannot Kill a Quizmaster: A Game of Thrones Quiz

Fire Cannot Kill a Quizmaster: A Game of Thrones Quiz

Do you drink and know things? Did you skip filling out a March Madness bracket in favor of a GOT death pool? Are you mumbling the names of those who've wronged you under your breath right now? On Saturday, April 20th we’re headed back to the seven kingdoms to celebrate the final season of Game of Thrones with another edition of Fire Cannot Kill a Quizmaster! If you went to the others, don’t worry, this will be bloodier, geekier, and finished long before George R.R. Martin releases another book. Yes, we've been making that same joke since 2015. It’s still true.

The vast majority of the quiz will cover the Game of Thrones TV show through Season 7. Round eight, as always, will be “Random Knowledge” and any, and everything Game of Thrones will be fair game there. No we won’t give you additional hints. Cheaters, and daughters with king’s blood, will be burned at the stake.

Admission to the realm comes at a price - $5 (no coins, paper currency please). The winners will be as rich as the Lannisters (incest and patricide optional), so bring your friends, your direwolves, and your dragons. The more commoners who play, the more riches you’ll earn. 

Remember, valar quizghulis, all men must quiz, so we hope to see you on the 20th. As George R.R. Martin once warned, “for every person who doesn’t come to a Geeks quiz, I kill a Stark.”

Registration for this quiz is REQUIRED! Head on over to http://bit.ly/GameOfThronesReg to register your team.
====================================

THEMED QUIZ FAQ
Should I wear a costume? 
YES! Some of our venues may have a costume contest if there's enough participation, but that's up to the venue and host.

How do you sign up? Where do you buy tickets?
Head on over to http://bit.ly/GameOfThronesReg to get your team registered. Please remember registrations are NOT a reservation of seating, but it will help us ensure that we have ample space for all our teams. Our theme quizzes tend to fill up quickly and we will turn away teams that did not pre-register. You will not purchase tickets in advance, simply pay the $5 per player entry fee in cash when you arrive at the quiz. Registrations will close 24 hours before the quiz and walk-up space might be available on a first come, first serve basis.

Will I get some sort of email confirmation?
You and your alternate captain should receive an automated email after submitting your registration and, as long, as long as that email doesn't indicate that you're on stand-by, you should plan to be at the quiz. The week of the quiz, we'll shoot you another reminder as well.

My city says "Sold Out"! Now what?
You can still register for the event for a stand-by spot if your city is still a drop-down option! If there's sufficient interest, or a team drops out, we'll let you know! We make no promises that you'll be able to get in, but if we can make it happen, you'll be the first to know. 

When will "Stand-by" teams know if they have a spot?
That depends on a lot of factors, but we'll let you know as soon as we can. The latest you'll know is 24 hours before the event.

How do you change your team name, number of players on the team or cancel a registration?
After you've registered, you can make changes to it by emailing us at marketing@geekswhodrink.com. You can also change your team name when you arrive at the quiz.

Is this a free quiz?
No, it's $5 per person to play (bring cash!), and we'll ask you to pay for everyone on your team before we give you quiz materials. If a team member is going to be late, we won't ask you pay in advance, but if they fail to pay on arrival, your team will be disqualified.

What's the maximum/minimum players per team? 
There is no minimum, but if you want to win, you should have a fully staffed squad. We're happy to help you find teammates in advance on social media or on the day of. Team maximum is strictly six players, as always. Everyone sitting with you is considered part of your team.

Do spectators have to pay? 
Yes. Yes, they do. Spectators generally have to pay for sporting events, right? This also goes for Geeks Who Drink employees that aren't working at the event and the people they make love to.

Can my dad/girlfriend/friend sit at our table and not play?
No. Six people max on a team and all players must pay. If they're sitting with you and not playing, we're going to ask that they move.

How long will the quiz last?
Our regular quizzes run about 2 hours, but themed quizzes require a bit more heavy lifting in terms of logistics, scoring and extra stuff we may have planned. Average is about 2 1/2 hours.

I'd like to help promote the quiz/talk to you on my podcast/contribute some bonus prizes. 
Great! Contact us at marketing@geekswhodrink.com and we'll see about making that happen.

Goose

  • Down The Road Beer Co. (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Rescheduled from February, Goose is now making their debut at Down The Road Beer Co. in Boston, MA on Friday April 19th!

TWO SETS of FREE goose! c'mon down!

Doors: 7 PM
Show: 8 PM

Goose is an indie-groove band based out of Norwalk, Connecticut. Rick Mitarotonda is the guitarist-singer-songwriter whose folky, hummable melodies are supported by Peter Anspach on guitar/keys, and a deep-pocket rhythm section of Trevor Weekz on Bass and Ben Atkind on drums. The band’s music is both memorable and danceable; an organic and easy-to-love mix of funk and contemporary folk, with touches of reggae, jazz, blues, and rock.

Tracked in a snowbound lakeside New Hampshire cabin, with mixing and mastering at the Factory Underground in Norwalk, CT, Goose’s debut album ‘moon cabin’ was released in early 2016. Moon Cabin traverses diverse musical terrain with 3 part harmony vocals and hooks so big you can hang your hat on them; funky improvised solos and adventurous musical interludes. With a second album on the way and tour dates continuing to ramp up, the Goose is getting loose.
