Erin Butcher, artistic director of Maiden Phoenix Theatre Company explains why performing in Somerville's Powder House Park means she will never do all-female outdoor performances again:

Vaguely, in the back of my head I must have known that a few homeless fellows would populate a public park in summer every now and then. But I really didn’t think much of it. I would be there every day anyway if there were any problems, and I had very rarely ever been approached by any homeless people in Somerville in my 4 years of living there… so it would be fine….

It was not fine. ...

State Sen. Bob Hedlund won election as mayor of Weymouth last night. Hedlund was one of the two sponsors of a bill to make Roadrunner the official Rock Song of the Commonwealth. The last time the song was up for the honor, its main sponsor, state Rep. Marty Walsh, got himself elected mayor, too, and the measure died.

The other sponsor of this year's bill, David Linsky, is from Natick, which doesn't have a mayor.

Blue Hills Bank Pavilion under repair

Earlier today, Matt the roving UHub photographer noticed the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion was in the process of being torn down and wondered why. Turns out it's not going away forever, just that the tent fabric is being replaced in time for performances to start up again in the spring.

City Councilors Sal LaMattina and Bill Linehan want to require street performers to buy $40 annual licenses for the right to perform on Boston streets.

The city council tomorrow considers their request for a hearing on a proposed ordinance that would require street performers to wear their permits - and to show them to inquiring police officers and to stay at least 100 feet away from elementary schools and hospitals - and at least 50 feet away from other buskers.

Jim Sullivan reports the Joint Committee on State Administration and Regulatory Oversight holds a hearing Tuesday on a bill that would make "Roadrunner" the official rock song of the Commonwealth.

Among those expected to testify: Joyce Linehan, whose earlier campaign to get the song enshrined in the list of official state things led to her to then state Rep. Marty Walsh, who agreed to lead the pro-Roadrunner campaign only to have it interrupted by him getting elected mayor.

This time, state Sen. Bob Hedlund (R-Weymouth) and state Rep. David Linsky (D-Natick) are the ones going faster miles an hour to elevate Jonathan Richman's song to the state pantheon.
