Summer Mixtape: 1990s
BDCWire
If you liked my 80s Summer Mixtape, you'll like my 90s Summer Mixtape. And if you didn't like my 80s Summer Mixtape because you're too young to remember any of those 80s summer jams, well maybe the 90s mix will suit you better.

Video Premiere: Dylan Ewen – ‘Fkuu Me’
Video
Jamaica Plain's resident sad boy Dylan Ewen knows how to get emotional in the grooviest way possible. The BUFU Records jack-of-all-trades often croons about the perils of heartbreak, failure, and boredom in the most blunt way possible, which, in some misery-loves-company type of way, ends up translating into some pretty sweet party music.

Harvard Women’s Rugby Team Launches Powerful ‘Rugged Grace’ Photo Campaign
Sports
Usually when you think rugby, you probably think sweaty, European men in short shorts, running and huddled up around a ball that has some semblance to our country's native pigskin. However, the Harvard Women’s Rugby team has published a photo project that not only celebrates everything they love about the sport and the teammates they spend tireless hours with in training, but that shares their message of creating a positive body image for women.

It's self-help time over at BDCwire. We're breaking out all our old "Chicken Soup for the Soul" and running off to an inner wellness retreat in the mountains with the hopes of returning a more friendly, approachable website. It's time we figure out what works and what is giving you, our loyal and awesome readers, the most headaches. There's only one problem: we need you! Yes, it seems counter-intuitive to work on inner wellness by asking others to tell us what's wrong. What can we say, we love the irony. More

Photos: Boston Parties on Wheels to Celebrate Donna Summer
Photos
Friday night, Boston showed its groovy side, putting on a free roller disco party on City Hall Plaza. Thousands showed up to show their tastiest roller rink moves, many in retro garb, moving to the sounds of Dorchester's DJ Kon. The event was created with the help of Together Boston in order to honor the late great Donna Summer, who passed away last year. Some of Summer's greatest hits were played, and disco culture was revived in Boston for one hot summer night. More

Readings at the Bar, Shakespeare on the Common, and More Events This Week
Boston events
Another week, another set of sweet options for stuff to do in Boston: Drink for a good cause, learn how to make drinks for a good cause (drinking delicious drinks), or see some free Shakespeare on the Common, probably without the drinks because those plays are hard enough to understand when you’re sober.
