We're guessing you have some pretty bad cabin fever from all that cold weather at this point, so it's time to get out! Here's what you can do.



Friday, 9:30 p.m.


2 Arrow St., Cambridge

$25-$55, 617-547-8300


Art forms collide and produce awesomeness at AcousticaElectronica, a radical multimedia performance experience with live classical musicians accompanying trance and techno DJs, ballet/jazz/modern dancers putting a high art spin on go-go dancing, circus aerialists treating gravity like a toy and even more sensory surprises. If you can’t go this week, despair not: It runs the second Friday of every month.


Allison Cekala: Salt Mountain

Friday through Jan. 23

The Howard Art Project

1486 Dorchester Ave.

Free, 617-369-3605


Everyone knows where the rock salt poured over Boston roads ends up: all over your shoes. But where did it come from? That’s the question Allison Cekalaanswers with this video/photography installation, her MFA thesis at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, which traces that ice-melting, shoe-ruining stuff all the way back to Chile’s Atacama Desert, a major source.



Saturday, 11:30 p.m.

Brattle Theater

40 Brattle St., Cambridge

$8-$10, 617-876-6837


No, this isn’t the 2004 Paul Haggis film “Crash,” the ensemble cast study of race relations in Los Angeles. This is David Cronenberg’s 1996 “Crash”, a much, much weirder film starring James Spader as a car crash survivor who discovers, through the widow of the man he unintentionally killed, an erotic underworld of car accident fetishists.


Bill Bellamy

Saturday, 9:45 p.m.

The Wilbur Theater

246 Tremont St., Boston

$23-$32, 800-745-3000


Here’s a couple of fun facts about stand-up comic Bill Bellamy. First, he’s said to have coined the phrase “booty call” back in the '90s. Second, he voiced the skirt-chasing puppet Skeeter on the semi-forgotten Nickelodeon sitcom “Cousin Skeeter.”In 2015, sexting has replaced the booty call, and Skeeter’s a bit of trivia, but Bellamy’s still funny, and stocked with spot-on characters.


Boston’s Celtic Music Fest

Friday through Sunday
