Slide Show On Friday night, Robert Pollard and the Boston Spaceships played a marathon, two-hour set at the Bluebird (41 songs and a thousand beers).

"One can always count on a few things happening at a Robert Pollard show. First, everyone in attendance will consume an obscene amount of cheap booze. Second, Pollard and whatever band he’s fronting will pack a staggering number of punchy, no-frills indie rock songs into a marathon-paced set. And finally, in attendance will be a core group of rabid followers who know the words to each and every one of Pollard’s 1,000-plus songs." Read More

On Saturday night, photographer Steve Truesdell went inside one of the country's scariest haunted structures -- for a few weeks in October at least -- The Darkness.
