About Oak Bluffs
map
Oak Bluffs is a Cape Cod town located on Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts. The Town of Oak Bluffs was founded as Cottage City in 1880. In 1907 the name was changed because of the fast growing population and the resort needed to recognize that is was not a "Cottage City" any more.

Oak Bluffs is home to the Flying Horses Carousel which is the nation's oldest operating carousel. The carousel is one of two known carousels built by Charles W.F. Dare in 1876.

In the center of town there are hundreds of imaginative and colorful gingerbread cottages. They are the most perfectly preserved collection of Carpenter Gothic style architecture in the world!

4th Annual Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest


Calling for local craft brew and homebrew fans, brew hobbyists, foodies, localvores, young entrepreneurs, and the curious minded!

4th Annual Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest
with a special Beer on Cask Tasting on Friday Night!

3 Sessions
Friday, June 12, 2015, 6:30 - 9:30pm plus Cask-conditioned beers from selective brewers
Saturday, June 13, 2015, 3:00 - 6:00pm
Saturday, June 13, 2015, 7:00 - 10:00pm

What is Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest?

Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest is an annual tasting fundraiser presented by Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts (SBN) that highlights and promotes local brewers of beer, newly established breweries, cider & mead, artisan beverage makers, and local food vendors.

Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest is a unique event that not only showcases local beverage producers, but also showcases local brews incorporating local ingredients. SBN's definition of local starts in Massachusetts and encompasses all of New England. Hyper-Local means local producers (from New England) making products with ingredients from New England. Examples in the past have included brews made with local hops, apples, cranberries, grapes and even local oysters. While having unlimited 2oz tastings from local brewers, you can also sample and purchase delicious local food from vendors like Valicenti Organico, Red Lentil, Taza Chocolate, and more.


What makes Friday night special?
Join us on Friday night for Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest with a special Beer on Cask Tasting “conditioned” by Randy Baril, Head Cellarman of NERAX (the New England Real Ale eXhibition). Try unfiltered and unpasteurised beer with no nitrogen or carbon dioxide added! Compare with the commercial version and tell us which one you love. The Showcase, also featuring a Small Batches Jamboree, will open dialogues between craft brewers, brew fans, and the curious-minded to experiment and learn what is available in the New England region for making their products. Attendees will also have an opportunity to learn more about making small batches and homebrewing. Additionally, attendees will get the chance to interact with other aspiring brewers, hear from experts, and taste a selection of the brews that will be showcased during the Saturday Sessions.

In doubt? Attend both days!


What is cask-conditioned beer?

Cask-conditioned beer is unfiltered and unpasteurised beer which is conditioned (including secondary fermentation) and served from a cask without additional nitrogen or carbon dioxide pressure. [1] Cask-conditioned beer served at Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest will be brewed by selected participating local breweries, who will also bring store bought versions to sample at the event. Pretty cool, right?


SBN Boston Local Food Program
This event is a celebration of local craft brews in conjunction with SBN's Boston Local Food Programs. The goal of SBN’s Boston Local Food Program is to transform the local food system by raising awareness about the abundance of wonderful locally grown and produced products in Massachusetts and New England and by encouraging individual consumers, food and beverage producers, and vendors to Think Local First. Hyper-Local Craft Brewfest presents a great opportunity to build the bridge between local producers and consumers of craft brews in advancing the local food system.


What's included with admission price?
+ Cask-conditioned beer from selected local brewers on Friday only
+ Small batches and special brews from selected vendors on all sessions
+ Unlimited tastings from our participating brewers, craft brewers, cideries, meaderies, artisan beverage             vendors

It collides with planet Earth for the first time this spring so prepare for a blast!PRESS: "This show is mad funny!

2015 Spring REAL Academy (Paxton)
 REAL Fútbol Training features exceptional training programs, trained trainers and a brand new Academy and will be conveniently located at Klingele Field (Paxton). This Academy will offer best practices and innovative approaches including partnering its program and trainers with local soccer organizations/academies in Central Massachusetts, that have a track record of sending a high percentage of their players to the next level.

Tip and Staff have spearheaded this new Academy in response to growing numbers of players in the Tantasqua and Wachusett area. The soccer community quickly expanded in size as excitement grew in response to the unique qualities of the Academy. The REAL Academy will be an independent and supplemental program and affiliated with Mass Youth Soccer. It will offer both an early soccer program for ages 3's and 4's as well as an elementary school from kindergarten through 5th grade. We encourage players to also participate in their local soccer program to play as much as possible.

REAL Futbol has positioned itself as the "bridge" between town and premier soccer where you will receive quality coaching at a fraction of the cost and travel.

Do you have a private school team that would like to be a part of our program?  We can accommodate your players and assign them all to one team. Recently, we enrolled our players from Venerini into our U10 division.  For more info, please email Tip at realfutboltraining@gmail.com.  

 Fields & Facility at Klingele Field, Paxton 

All Training locations will be at the beautiful Klingele field complex where there is a snack shack, bathrooms and the manicured grass fields. Many refer to Klingele gradd fields as the best around Central Mass.

Training Days

Like the Fall, we understand that our players travel from various towns and rely on car pooling. We requested to have training for all groups on Fridays to ensure that school is not disrupted and multiple familiy members can participate.

Aaron Sorkin's The Farnsworth Invention: TV's Secret History Revealed

Farnsworth works on an idea he developed in high school to broadcast sound and images across the airwaves to a TV set. Meanwhile, across the country, media mogul David Sarnoff of RCA races to do the same. See this rousing David-verus-Goliath tale at Arsenal Center for the Arts in Waterstown.

Shake! presents DJ Funk & Parris Mitchell at Good Life
Line-up /

DJ Funk
Parris Mitchell
Ali Berger
Dev/Null

Shake! returns for May with yet another wild double headliner strictly for the freaks: Dance Mania’s DJ Funk and Parris Mitchell!

DJ FUNK
Where do you even start with a legend like DJ Funk? Since his first release on Dance Mania in 1993 he's become a household name, and with good reason--he's responsible for countless bangin beats and hype vocals. We're pumped to Pump It with the creator of so many Ghetto House Anthems, especially because he's bringing along a drum machine and a synth for some live set action.

PARRIS MITCHELL
Alongside DJ Funk we have another house hero: Parris Mitchell. He's been a staple in the Chicago scene since the mid-'80s, releasing his first record on Ray Barney's label Bright Star Records in 1987. Mitchell went on to be an important part of the Dance Mania roster, releasing classics like "Butter Fly" and "Follow Me Ghetto". In the past few years lots of his material has been reissued and he's become something of a spokesperson for Dance Mania in the label's resurgence. We're looking forward to getting educated out on the dancefloor.

Back-to-back support from the Shake! residents:

Dale Watson
with The Barley Hoppers
Dale has flown the flag for classic honky-tonk for over two decades. Hes christened his brand of American roots Ameripolitan to differentiate it from current crop of Nashville-based pop country. The Alabama-born, Texas-raised Watson may be the hardest working entertainer today and is rapidly approaching legendary status. He is a country music maverick, a true outlaw who stands alongside Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and George Strait as one of the finest country singers and songwriters from the Lone Star State. Dale Watson, keeper of the true country music flame, returns with Call Me Insane, a new studio album recorded in Austin with veteran producer Lloyd Maines (Robert Earl Keen, Jerry Jeff Walker, etc.) The album will be released on June 9 in North America via Red House/ Ameripolitan Records on CD, digital, and vinyl. The Austinbased honky-tonker carries on in the tradition of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson with his Ameripolitan brand of American roots music.Having known Lloyd over 20 years and worked with him as a musician, I knew he was a great guy and picker, Watson says. But having Lloyd produce your record is like letting your mom in your kitchen. You know youre gonna like what comes out and its amazing how such basic ingredients can be made even better. He is an artists' artist.The admiration is mutual. Ive been a Dale Watson fan since I played steel guitar on some of his early records, Maines says of the sessions. My early musical influences are the same as Dales. We both grew up playing real country music. Dale is one of a very short list of todays artists who still keeps it real country. Im honored that he asked me to produce his new record. I think he knew that I would maintain the integrity of his passion for the music. Dubbed the silver pompadoured, baritone beltin, Lone Star beer drinkin, honky-tonk hellraiser by The Austin Chronicle, Watson recently sat in with Jimmy Kimmels house band as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC) from SXSW.

Maeve Gilchrist & Nic Gareiss
Michigan born percussive-dancer, Nic Gareiss and Scottish harpist Maeve Gilchrist met while both teaching at the Shasta Fiddle Camp in Northern California. They continued their musical relationship with spontaneous collaborations at festivals and chance meetings and later toured together as part of Darol Anger’s band, ‘The Furies’.
Sharing a deep respect for traditional music and culture while drawing on contemporary elements of music, dance, rhythm and improvisation, Nic and Maeve have emerged from the vibrant new acoustic scene as innovators in their fields. The percussion and drive of Nic’s footwork combined with Maeve’s melodic and improvisational sensibilities make for an explosive duet that delights both the ears and the eyes.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy - A Practical Introduction in Clinical Practice: A Weekend Professional Workshop
Acceptance and mindfulness-based practices are rapidly making their way into mental health care, medicine, and society both to alleviate human suffering and nurture psychological health and wellness. This body of work also offers a fresh perceptive on psychological suffering and a set of powerful clinical strategies that support meaningful life changes. In this workshop, we will learn about one particular approach and set of practices based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). ACT is a newer third-generation evidence-based behavior therapy that balances mindfulness and acceptance processes with commitment and behavior change processes to (a) weaken the unhelpful influence of thoughts and emotional avoidance in guiding actions, while (b) promoting greater experiential and psychological flexibility in the service of (c) valued ends. It is both a form of therapy and an approach to living well, with evidence showing that it is useful for many forms of psychological and emotional suffering. In short, ACT teaches clients how to be with their hurts and do what works – to live well, richly, and meaningfully, without first having to defeat sources of emotional and psychological pain. This 2-day workshop will introduce ACT, both as a model and intervention technology, and illustrate its use across a broad set of problem areas that are commonly seen in mental health settings (e.g., anxiety, depression, anger). This work can be challenging for both therapists and clients alike, for much of ACT work involves contacting difficult and painful psychological content without defense and for a purpose other than psychological relief. Thus, understanding the application and integration of the ACT model of psychological health and suffering is essential for effective ACT work. Our time together will be filled with didactic teachings, live and video demonstrations, and practical experiential exercises that will be done individually, in dyads, and small groups. The exercises will highlight the integration of mindfulness and acceptance strategies (along with kindness and compassion exercises) to disarm forms of human suffering and also to promote greater clarity of values and action in the service of living well. Participants will be encouraged (but never forced or coerced) to engage the material at a personal level, as it applies to their own lives, and then also in the context of their clinical work. All we ask is that participants are willing to get inside the ACT model and approach, if only for a weekend. Clinical worksheets and other practical tools will be provided.

Home Body

Home Body is an artful electro-pop duo, winning over eardrums left and right with their bold, gutsy charm. Tight crunchy beats, layered glitzy synths, and guttural bass lines march with imaginative, strong vocal melodies riding proudly on their shoulders. Home Body's music inhabits the sonic space that rides the edge between machine and mankind, where the manufactured and the organic dance, collide, and co-operate. The duo is magnetic to watch; their animated performances include modern dance, creative costuming, and light manipulation, resulting in a spectacle that amplifies their edgy heartfelt music.Home Body was recently named "Best Unsigned Band" by Verbicide Magazine, has drawn comparisons to The Knife, Bjork, and The Eurythmics. The duo cites "ancient civilizations, astronomy, fireworks and colorful plastics" as inspiration for their forthcoming album, In Real Life.

BEFORE BED: FAIRY TALES FOR THE HARDLY AWAKE Nothing calms down an anxious child like a good bedtime story. In this show, however, nobody knows what's going to come out of the storybook. Snuggle up with us and discover new stories created on the spot by some of Boston's best improv troupes. Who knows what valuable -- or questionable -- life lessons will come out of this improvised book of fairytales?
