Weekend

Friday

Sing it: Music at the Mansion, the weekly summer concert series at the North Adams Public Library, features Bernice Lewis at 6 p.m. This concert takes place outside on the front lawn of the library. Everyone is welcome to bring a lawn chair or blanket to relax and enjoy the music. With almost four decades of performing festivals, concert halls, coffeehouses, colleges, and house concerts, along with a half dozen acclaimed CDs, Lewis has built a solid national fan base. She is the artist associate in songwriting at Williams College in Williamstown.

A little clammy: Wild Oats Market in Williamstown hosts an All-You-Can-Eat Clambake with music by the Hale Mountain Pickers tonight from 5 to 7 p.m. The Pickers specialize in foot-tapping renditions of old timey, bluegrassy tunes. The menu includes: clams, mussels & shrimp steamed with linguica sausage & potatoes; chopped BBQ brisket on a bun; roasted corn-on-the-cob; coleslaw; tomato & cucumber salad; mixed greens; and rolls & butter. It’s first-come first-serve and all-you-can-eat for this clambake. Cost: $14.99/per for adults and $8.99/per for children 12 and under.

Slam that: WordXWord Festival will hold the Poetry Slam finals tonight at 6 p.m. Poets compete for cash prizes and the title of WXW Champion at the Berkshire Museum. Followed by "Whose Slam Is It Anyway" at 8 p.m. WordXWord events are free and open to the public. Seating is limited; admission is on a first-come basis. For complete calendar, visit wxw365.org.

Read Rebecca Dravis's column for what to do with the family this weekend.

He's a wizard: Virtuosic Gypsy swing guitarist Stephane Wrembel is the second coming of Django Reinhardt — a fretboard wizard who embellishes the hot jazz of the 1930s with flourishes of world music to create a sound all his own. Born in Paris and educated at Berklee College of Music, Wrembel wrote the theme song to Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris, has performed at the Academy Awards, and is generally one of the most astonishing musicians you'll ever hear. He will perform at Mass MoCA with his quartet, each member a monster musician in his own right. Tickets can be purchased online here.
