starry starry (7.21) At the TD Ballroom— Congolese Rumba; lessons and performance by Rumbafrica. Over at Memorial Park, check out the Gargoyles and Oracles from Ten31 Productions (little kids find these characters pretty interesting).

Hey, liquid cookies! Between 6pm and 10pm visit the Dunkin’ Donuts tent on Washington Street for free samples of the new Oreo Coolattas, because who the hell has time for chewing these days. Even sipping seems such a bother . . . let us know when they invent the Oreo drip.

The scheduled music program is posted on the website shortly before the night of.

The soundtrack changes with each performance and works by artists from throughout the globe are deliberately juxtaposed. The emotional character of the music is opposed to the minimalism of the sculpture—just as fire is paired with water. The music program begins before sunset and ends at 1am on all full WaterFire events.

Tonight’s music includes: Ry Cooder, Mamadou Diabate, Mike Figgis, “Fry Bread” from Smoke Signals, Chopin, “Chapa Blues Band” by Victor Deme, Low Anthem, Trombone Shorty, Bellini, Bon Iver, and of course Puccini’s “Nessun Dorma” . . . everybody sing!

Head over to Starry Starry Night and make a donation.

Ignition at sunset 8:15pm, Saturday, July 21, WaterFire, downtown
