D Street Tunes: Here is the full DJ schedule for Lawn on D’S summer series ‘Lester Bangs Presents’

With only about a year of programming under its belt, outdoor space The Lawn On D might be this summer’s hottest music destination in Boston. This past weekend, the Southie-slash-Seaport multi-purpose venue hosted a jam-packed Narragansett party with Bearstronaut, and two upcoming Bowery Boston shows — Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros on June 17 and Passion Pit on July 23 — are already sold out.

 

Saturday nights at Lawn On D are taking a more chill approach, with a series of various personalities in the Boston music scene DJing parties that pay tribute to their favorite artists and musical moments in time.

 

It’s called Lester Bangs Presents, and it kicked off this past weekend with Eli “Paperboy” Reed spinning southern soul, and future events include the Boston Herald’s Jed Gottlieb spinning local favorites, DJ ABD throwing down all things related to Prince, and this writer tapping into his former life as DJ of the Pill for a night of Cool Britannia.

Daily nonstop flights to Qatar coming to Logan in March

Qatar Airways said yesterday it will start nonstop daily flights next year between Logan International Airport and Doha, Qatar’s capital city.

The move is expected to trigger more backlash from U.S. airlines that accuse Qatar Airways, Emirates and Etihad Airways of competing unfairly through more than $40 billion in subsidies from their home governments in the last decade, allowing them to drive down ticket prices and begin pushing competitors out of key 
markets.

Hubway Bikes Will Return Friday, April 17

As the weather warms and the last remnants of ice begins to melt across Boston, another sign of spring will soon hit the city in the form of Hubway bicycles.

 

Metro Boston’s bike-sharing system will officially resume operations on Friday, April 17 — marking its fifth year of existence. Boston Bikes program manager Kim Foltz noted that the spring re-launch was originally slated for early March, but it had to be postponed due to the aftermath of a brutal winter.

“Hubway continues to grow, which is a testament to its importance in moving people around the area,” said Boston Mayor Marty Walsh in a press release. “The return of bikes has become a real sign of spring for the region, and we’re eager for system expansion later in the season that will continue to improve the way people move about the city.”

Hubway will roll out 1,300 bicycles at 140 stations this season — although 13 stations situated along the Boston Marathon route in Brookline and Boston will be closed until after the event on April 20.

Late Night MBTA Service to Continue on a Reduced Schedule

On Wednesday afternoon, the MassDOT board approved the continuation of Late-Night T Service, but will operate on a reduced schedule due to budgetary constraints. This means, according to the Boston Globe, that passengers will have to wait for a longer duration of time between rides.

 

The initial trial period for the service allowed for the subway and certain bus lines to operate as late as 2:30 a.m. but the latest approval, for which $10 million is dedicated, curtails that time to just 2 a.m. It's part of "a $2.02 billion budget for the T’s 2016 fiscal year," reports the Globe.

 

Further, starting June 27, the 15, 22, 71, 73, and 77 bus routes will not operate past 12:30 a.m. Ten other bus lines will remain.
