July 3 Linda Alterwitz, Trifecta Gallery

“In these photographs,” the artist says of her exhibit, In-Sight, “I weave together images of the human body derived from repurposed medical imaging with images of landscapes, revealing ethereal figures in a raw and vulnerable state. The mind, wrestling with sadness, fear and hope, retreats to a safe refuge. Through these pieces, I hope to bring insight to the struggles and the resulting withdrawal of the inner mind.” Through July 27, reception July 3, trifectagallery.com

 

July 26, Boston and Cheap Trick, Hard Rock Hotel

You’re all, Boston and Cheap Trick are old dudes, dude, and we’re like, Yeah, but at least one of those bands can still bring the noise, and then, after a brief pause, we all spontaneously break out into, Mommy’s all right, daddy’s all right, they just seem a little weird … Might as well surrender. 8 p.m., $49.50 and up, hardrockhotel.com

Homeless Mammoths Art Square Theatre

Cave girl

Technically, this happens in August, but we want you to mark your calendars early. It’s a production of Madeline George’s play Seven Homeless Mammoths Wander New England. One reviewer describes it thusly: “a hilarious satire on present-day academia and the current generation of college students, a playfully irreverent depiction of lesbian relationships, a profound meditation on selfishness, spirituality and mortality …” Aug. 13-24, Cockroach Theatre in Art Square, $25,
