Who are you wearing?

The annual “Rock the Village” fashion and music mash-up will be held tonight at the Brighton Music Hall on Brighton Avenue. Doors open at 8 PM, models hit the catwalk at 11PM, and your $12 ticket benefits the Allston Village Main Streets program. Expect a mix of what you can see along Harvard Avenue and hear in basements across South Allston.

1501, Charing Cross Road?

Tonight’s meeting will give neighbors a look at the plans for the city-owned property at 1501 Commonwealth Avenue. The report on contains no explanation for the name, “Charing Cross,” which seems an attempt at…what? So people can imagine they are buying a condo above a quaint British bookshop?

The project as described looks pretty good, and will bring some life to a stretch of the avenue that sorely needs it. Let’s hope the city will make good use of the $50,000 developer contribution to improve the shabby median across from the site, and the $25,000 that is pledged to Ringer Park. One question that I did not see answered was what are the income levels for the eighteen apartments designated as affordable.
