There are so many shows, performances, and galleries in and around Harvard Square that sometimes it's hard to know where to start—so the Arts board is here for you. We've compiled a list of interesting (and nearby) events happening this weekend to satisfy your craving for art.
World Music Presents Buika - Sanders Theater - 8 p.m.
If the words "flamenco queen" doesn't get you to Sanders Theater on Friday, nothing will. Concha Buika bridges traditional flamenco music with heavy jazz and blues to create her moving and personal style.
American Institute of Archaeology - Museum of Science Archaeology Fair - Science Park - Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
If you want to find out what a flintknapper is and learn how to uncover mysteries of a society from looking through their trash, check out the sixth annual AIA-MOS Archaeology fair. October is Massachusetts Archaeology Month, and there's no better place to celebrate.
"Smoke This" Rib Fest - Cambridge Street and Fifth Street, East Cambridge - Sunday, 12 – 4 p.m.
If you're getting tired of foods with the words "pumpkin" or "spice" in their names, and you're beginning to miss the grills of summer, look no further than the "Smoke This" Rib Fest in East Cambridge. Twenty dollar ($20) "taste tickets" are on sale right now at the event's website; if you don't feel inclined to buy one, you can still enjoy a street-food extravaganza of samplings from 23 local restaurants.
