John Galluzzo: Half an Hour a Day

Thursday, November 1, 2012 - 10:00am

Massachusetts historian and natural historian JOHN GALLUZZO decided that for the year 2011 he would take a 30 minute hike in a green space in every town and city in the state. It was a mammoth task to undertake and plan. John had to deal with poor weather, swarms of insects and family crises, but in the end he accomplished his goal. Tune in tonight and listen to John talk about what the real goal of this amazing project was; what some of his favorite places in the state were and what he learned along the way.

Not your average songwriters in the round: Two sets of music with George Woods, Amy Kucharik, Sam Otis Hill, Mark Whitaker, John Colvert, Patrick Coman and Timmy Riordan.

But the plot thickens: While half the songwriters are onstage performing, the other half will be busy writing a song prompted by the audience... And at the end, both groups will compete for songwriting supremacy based on the audience's vote! Two songs enter, one song leaves!

Like a pirate transmission from a faraway radio, on a heartbroken planet not unlike this one, the narcotic hymns of a band of space pilgrims reverberate through the atmosphere. Hurtling toward our galaxy, this company of cosmic pioneers call themselves Mount Peru, broadcasting a strange and beautiful message coded in hypnotic strains of post-modern Americana. That message has reached earth, and Mount Peru’s debut album, My Sweetheart the Destroyer (2011), has exploded onto the Boston music scene with the gentle yet insistent force of a
slo-mo supernova.
