SCOUT WEEKEND: MAY 24-27 edition

radioThis aptly forecasted rain is kind of gross, but we’ve got plenty of things for you to do in the Great Indoors of Somerville! Curl up in your bed and watch Arrested Development or take an alternative approach got to a show (inside) at a great local venue.

Whether you’ll weather the weather or not, we’ve got you covered this Memorial Day weekend:

All Weekend

Rosebud’s Last Ride

On Monday night, after years as a neighborhood fixture, Davis Square’s beloved Rosebud Bar & Grill will close its doors for good. But they sure as hell ain’t ending with a whimper – they’ve got a packed weekend of live music for old friends and new friends alike, so come out and help them make their last weekend on earth a weekend to remember. Rosebud Bar & Grill, 381 Summer St.

Friday

Big Fuzzy at the Armory
Get cozy with Big Fuzzy, an acoustic duo comprised of Anneke Reich on voice box and Max Kennedy on guitar. Sit back and chill while listening to Reich’s lilting vocal performance, combined with unfamiliar but comforting guitar chords and Ben Folds-esque backing vocals by Kennedy. Classical/rock crossover band Ginger Ibex is also playing. No cover! Center of the Arts at the Armory, 191 Highland Ave., Somerville. 7:30 p.m.

Interrobang at Radio Downstairs
Tune in to a stacked lineup this Friday at the official Somerville debut of The Interrobang! Come bop along and celebrate the CD release of the resident band. They’ll be at Radio every last Saturday of the month for the rest of the year; come watch the beginning of an era. Also playing: When Particles Collide, The Susan Constant, and The Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library. $8. 381 Somerville Ave., Somerville. 9 p.m.

Saturday

Assembled: the Handmade Arts Market at Assembly Row
While Assembly Row is still a work in progress, come enjoy a pottery-centric showcase and arts market in the parking lot nearby! Popular Etsy vendors will take their wares off the internet and into real life, beloved food trucks will park nearby, and local art will be everywhere. Nosh on delicious food and make a day of it. Assembly Row, 300 Grand Union Boulevard, Somerville. 11 a.m.

Chainsaw Maidens From Hell
Chainsaw Maidens From Hell needs your help. The story is fleshed out and all the cast and crew needs is a bit more money to make their vision come to undead life. Hang out with chemistry teachers, high school students, ghouls and demons (or just the actors playing them) at a kickoff fundraiser for the local low-budget horror film. Support the dark arts! Artisan’s Asylum, 10 Tyler St., Somerville. 7 p.m.

Sunday

Memorial Day Parade
Kicking off at Somerville High School, follow the Somerville Memorial Day Parade along Highland Avenue through Davis Square and onto Broadway. The spectacle will end at the Cemetery in Teele Square, so grab some friends and wait it out there if you’d like to sleep in. Rain or shine, there will still be a group of people and floats marching down through Somerville. Somerville High School, 81 Highland Ave.,  Somerville. 1 p.m.

Arrested Development Abides!
It’s probably going to rain on Sunday anyways, so why not rewatch as much Arrested Development as possible in preparation for the new season? Season 4 is set for release on Netflix on Sunday, so either jump on a free trial or renew your subscription. There’s always money in the banana stand and there’s always entertainment in the Bluth family. Now all we need is that movie we were promised. Your Bed, Somerville. Midnight.

Philharmonic Funk Foundation
Get your groove on with Boston’s only funk orchestra at the Armory. Enjoy the musical stylings of lovely leading lady vocalists and a full band with horns, strings and a piano. Featuring popular covers and Supremes-like dance moves, you’re in for a treat. $10. Center for Arts at the Armory, 191 Highland Ave., Somerville. 7:30 p.m.

Memorial Day

Hopefully you have the day off from work, so take a moment to reflect in the comfort of your home or favorite coffee shop and remember what this holiday is about.
