May 20 Globe South Best Bets

This is our pick of the best of the burbs. For more information, go to and search music, restaurants, arts and crafts, and other goings-on throughout Greater Boston.


Dennis: In 1982, Bruce Springsteen released “Nebraska,” a sparse, haunting solo album of 10 songs — stories of everyday people facing challenges in life — showing that folk music is alive and timeless, not just a collection of dusty, old-timey songs. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of this classic, Jonathan Hall will perform “Nebraska” in its entirety, with guitar, harmonica, and vocals. Friday, 8 p.m. Cape Cod Chat House, 593 Route 6A. Free. 508-694-7187,


Westwood: Peri Smilow has been called a Jewish combination of Joan Baez and Pete Seeger. Enjoy an evening of his music Sunday, 7 p.m. Temple Beth David, 7 Clapboardtree St. $25, $18 students, $10 children. 781-769-5270.


Easton: For Super Hero Day, kids are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite super heroes and take part in special activity stations. Children can create a mask to conceal their true identities and fuel up for crimefighting at a smoothie bar. Stop by the Roche Bros’ Kids’ Club Table to meet the Danger Rangers and sample some snacks. Thursday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Children’s Museum in Easton, 9 Sullivan Ave. $9.50. 508-230-3789,
