Five Things You Need to Know This Weekend
A concert fusing Farsi poetry and jazz, municipal property auctions and "Damn Yankees."
- The Iranian Association of Boston hosts this concert uniting international love songs and poetry in Farsi, with jazz and soul music in English. Mahsa Vahdat and Sam McClain combine their voices and cultures with song. The concert will be at 17 Nichols Ave. at 7:30 p.m.
- "Damn Yankees," the spring musical at Watertown Children's Theatre, is the Broadway hit that asks what one man will do to make sure his team wins the pennant. A cast of fifth to ninth graders brings this home run-hit to the Arsenal Center for the Arts stage tonight at 7 p.m., directed by Erica Berman.
- There will be auctions of municipally owned property today at 62 Carey Ave. from noon to 1:30 p.m. and 218 Boylston St. from 10 a.m. to noon.
- Seniors looking to keep active can go to the Watertown Senior Center for the "It's Never Too Late to Get Moving" class. The program includes muscle strengthening, light stretching, and low impact aerobics, and is focused on the needs of seniors in a fun and safe environment. The class runs from 11 a.m. to noon, and costs $3 per class.
- Parents and children can take a stroll through the Watertown Mall every this morning at 9:30 a.m. The mall provides a safe, climate-controlled environment, and the group meets near Carter's. Strollers are welcome.
