Flynn
Maybe you remember him from the Cliffs of Dooneen. Or maybe you heard Cher's version of his song ''Human" in the soundtrack to the Farrelly Brothers' conjoined twins flick ''Stuck on You." But did you know that after Cliffs disbanded in the late 1990s, the Irish singer/songwriter Flynn (above) fell off a ladder and broke his back, and didn't know if he'd walk again? ''I was blessed," Flynn says, his spine now rigged with four screws and a bit of titanium. ''Music got me through it. I was bitter after Cliffs -- I'd lost my faith in music. But then I started listening and writing without any real aspirations," and the music began to matter again. He has a new album due out in February. His old friend from Cliffs, Lex Lianos, will join him.
Where and when: Boston Common Parkman Bandstand, 10 p.m.-midnight.
