Tuesday, December 2
- "Recording the Beatles" lecture @ the Boston Public Library: You may know who the Martha* in the Paul McCartney-penned ditty "Martha My Dear" was, but do you know which equipment the Fab Four used to create the "White Album"? Authors and audiophiles Brian Kehew and Kevin Ryan painstakingly researched the Beatles' recording sessions and interviewed the band's technicians and engineers for their new book, "Recording the Beatles." They'll be on hand to answer your questions and get all geeky about John, Paul, George, and Ringo. 6 p.m.
* Martha was Paul's sheepdog. Duh.
Wednesday, December 3
- MFA for the Holidays @ the Museum of Fine Arts: The MFA is certainly in the holiday spirit. Not only is museum admission free on Wednesday, but the Boston Children's Choir will also perform at 5:30. (We request "White Christmas.") You should probably eat before you go, lest you're tempted to snack on the big gingerbread museum created by North Shore Community College culinary students displayed in the Sharf Visitor Center. 4-9:45 p.m.
Sunday, December 7
- UK Funky @ the Enormous Room: If you're up on the latest dance and club trends, you probably already know what UK Funky music is. If not, DJs G Notorious and Vice T are ready to school you in this blend of house music, Afrobeat, and Soca at the Enormous Room Sunday night. SoulChampion.com is sponsoring the event and purportedly introducing Boston to this dance music, which the site calls: "the most innovative and exciting new sound to come out of the UK since Dubstep." 21+. 9:30 p.m.-1 a.m.
