Where do you go to find greater-Boston arts events? There are so many choices, all with their particular limitation or drawback. Until today.
Founders Jeff Boudreau and Pam Warren think "Cecilia's Choices", a new Facebook page, is the answer. Seeing the shortcomings of other souces, Boudreau and Warren, both well-connected to the greater Boston music scene, have created a simple, unified "go to" resource anyone to share what they (and future editors who will be added**) consider to be the best live music and arts events, featuring a day or two before the event. Together and with member input, concert, recital and other performance as well as workshops, classes, gallery opening/shows and radio special information will be presented.
Not ready to step up to that level? Simply contribute your event on the main page for consideration to be featured (and a message reminder via the page as the date draws closer), or just sit back and read the offerings. Whether as an editor, contributor or member, all are welcome aboard!

p.s. Cecelia has a "snarky" side, too. If you can't stand "cheesy" music, you'll love "Camberville Cheese", which was inspired by a discussion on Christian McNeill's wall that began with "Mumford and Sonszzzzzzzzzzzz. Really? We can do better than this people." and is dedicated to the WMBR's annual "Cheese Patrol" program.
