South Shore Events for October

October 2, 2007 § Leave a comment

Ah, October. My second-favorite month, now that I’m out of school. Notable events this month include the Garnet Rogers in Lunenburg on Saturday the 6th, Ron Sexsmith and Jill Barber in Chester on Thursday the 11th, and the Second Annual International Ukulele Ceilidh in Liverpool the 25-28. Also, the Lunenburg Film Series has started a new season, and Pearl Theatre Movie Nights are back on, too.

This is just a partial list, and I’m certain I’ll add to it as October wears on.

This month’s movie is Waitress starring Keri Russell, Cheryl Hines, and (personal favorite) Nathan Fillion.

I love the uke; I’ll totally be there.
