- Berklee Jazz Workshop Concert @ Mothers Rest: Mothers Rest. Sounds like a perfectly pastoral place to enjoy a concert, right?

Berklee professors Terri Lynne Carrington and Rick DiMuzio will direct. 6:30-8 p.m.

- Wing Eating Contest @ The Chicken Bone: Looking for some hot stuff? Survive the Chicken Bone's varying wing-eating heats — Thermonuclear wings, anyone? — and you could win some Harpoon beer to wash it all down. Now, that's what we call summer. Not a spicy food fan? Stick to the 'Bone's "Sexy Fries." Hot. 8 p.m.

- Technolust @ the Alchemist: "If there ever was a sexy soundtrack for a futuristic hot robot porno, they would be bumping and grinding to the themes of Technolust," according to this dance event's Facebook page. Well, then. I, for one, will be very disappointed if I don't hear the Underworld theme from Super Mario Brothers among the minimal techno and house beats. DJs Alan Manzi, Baldur, and Damien Paul are on tap. 10 p.m.
