Sunday, May 13, 2012 - 9:00pm

Ironman is the famous Marvel superhero alter ego of arms dealer and playboy  Tony Stark. Stark built an exoskeleton that amplified his performance and strength. In later movies and comics, the Iron Man suit is directly plugged into Tony Stark’s brain creating a unique melding of man and machine. This sounds fantastic, something possible only in the realm of comics, right? Well, not so fast. Recent technological and medical developments in neuro-prosthetics are creating human brain-machine interfaces that are beginning to approach the fantasy of the Iron Man comics.

From Brazil, CÉU

One of the most sonically adventurous artists in Brazil today, Céu has earned both Grammy and Latin Grammy nominations. Her songs reveal her many influences, which include samba, salsa, choro, soul, rhythm and blues, hip hop, reggae, afrobeat and electrojazz.

She is currently touring in support of Caravana Sereia Bloom (Six Degrees), her bold new release that seems to draw more from early Tropicalia artists and Os Mutantes than the laid-back bossa nova and samba references of her earlier recordings.

Tickets: 18+, standing room only $25

Known for his lively, energetic stage performances, he returns to Boston after a stellar sold-out performance last year.

Tickets: $40

Al Dean

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
