This weekend’s top arts and entertainment picks around town, from the guy who’s paid to pick them:
Friday: The Bad Boys of Rock tour
Mikey G claims he doesn't know who Amanda Bynes is. Mikey G's wife must read C-Notes.
comes to town tonight with a bunch of shirtless tattooed guys who like their music loud. The three bands -- Hinder, Papa Roach, and Buckcherry -- share more than an affinity for partying like they were in Led Zeppelin circa 1975. Apparently, none of them has heard a record released after 1990 either. No matter – this is probably the sweatiest show you’ll see all summer. It comes to the Time Warner Amphitheater
There’s nothing we like more than cheap food. So look for us at Jimmy John’s Customer Appreciation Day
this afternoon, waiting in line to score a discounted sub. All sandwiches go for a mere 92 cents! Why 92 cents, you ask? Because 92.3 FM will be there too, handing out free stuff. Cheap food + free stuff = score! It all happens from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Jimmy John’s in Coventry.
I’m not a 14-year-old girl, so I have no idea who Amanda Bynes is. According to IMDB
, she was the star of What I Like About You
– which ran a whopping four seasons on the WB (that probably explains why I never heard of her). Bynes is expanding her talents to the fashion world. She recently launched a new clothing line called Dear, which features jeans, hoodies, and shoes. She’ll be at the Steve & Barry’s
store at Southland Shopping Center today, signing autographs, chatting up fans, and reminding folks she was the voice of Piper in Robots
(thanks IMDB!). -- Michael Gallucci
