SCOUT PICKS: 6/5/15-6/7/15

Scout picksCourtesy of East Somerville Main Streets.

Listen up, Somerville. This weekend is packed with great stuff to do.

Saturday
Savage Games
7:30-10 a.m., $35 online, $45 door
Brooklyn Boulders
12A Tyler St.
The folks at Brooklyn Boulders are calling this thing “beast-mode,” and if you see that as a challenge and not a defeat, this session could rock your world. This “two-hour beatdown” has moves inspired by Ninja Warrior, Parkour, Obstacle Racing and the good ol’ team at Brooklyn Boulders. Also there’s an after party–if you can handle it.

We Actually Broke the Internet
9 p.m., $10
Davis Square Theatre
255 Elm St.
Music, comedy and even magic collide in this variety show hosted by Boston-based comedian Kofi Thomas. With performances by singer/songwriter Tyler Allan, rapper/producer Sur5ILL and award-winning magician Zoë Reiches, this evening may prove that you really can have it all. No word on whether or not Kim Kardashian will make an appearance.

Saturday and Sunday
Herbstalk
All Day, $15-$40
Center for Arts at the Armory
191 Highland Ave.
June is here again, which means it’s time for Herbstalk, the grassroots herbal conference that was founded by Somerville resident Steph Zabel. We featured Zabel in our May/June issue (she was on our cover!), so if that piqued your interest, then come on down to the Armory to get a real taste of what herbs can offer. Check out their class schedule here.

Sunday
Carnaval at Somerstreets
12-4 p.m., Free
East Broadway
This year will mark the sixth summer that East Somerville had hit the street with its Carnaval celebration. Festivities start with a parade at noon, but there are tons of other attractions to keep you partying all day. Check out relays set up by Somerville Recreation, catch some music on one of two stages that will be rocking that day or enjoy the family makerspace provided by Parts and Crafts.
