The night after their grandfather’s funeral, three cousins engage in a battle royale over a precious family heirloom.

And in the middle is Liam’s brother Jonah, trying to stay out of the fray. A fierce, biting comedy about family, faith and what you choose to believe, when you’re chosen. [less-]

Robert Askins’ play finds a Fundamentalist Christian congregation reckoning with a hand puppet named Tyrone that’s possessed by the devil. “Mr. Askins black comedy about the divided human soul stands out as a misfit, both merry and scary, and very welcome.” -- The New York Times “In Askins vision, deviance and debauchery aren’t that different from fervent piety, deep faith, the longing for purity and goodness… a point that makes every joke, every scandalous sight gag land with extra bite...” -- San Francisco Chronicle [less-]

Under Milk Wood is a 1954 radio drama by Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, commissioned by the BBC and later adapted for the stage. The story is told by two omniscient narrators who invite the audience to listen to the dreams and innermost thoughts of the inhabitants of the fictional small Welsh fishing village Llareggub or "bugger all" spelled and pronounced backward. The villagers include Mrs. Ogmore-Pritchard, relentlessly nagging her two dead husbands; Captain Cat, reliving his seafaring times; the two Mrs. Dai Breads; Organ Morgan, obsessed with his music; and Polly Garter, pining for her dead lover. Later, the town awakens and, aware now of how their feelings affect whatever they do, we watch them go about their daily business. When Thomas was staying at New Quay, Cardiganshire, in West Wales, one winter, he went out early one morning into the still sleeping town and verses came to his mind about the inhabitants. He wrote the account of this as a short story named "Quite Early One Morning". He continued to work on the idea for the remaining eight years of his life: in many ways prophetically, yet accurately describing and predicting his future. This is a beautiful poem, staged in the unique Thistle Dew Dessert Theatre, by a magnificent cast in the moving Welsh dialogue taught by their own Phil Ryder. [less-]

Jared and the Mill are an indie country band that would fit right in at a rural bar or on a Spotify playlist sponsored by Urban Outfitters. Their music can either be atmospheric and quiet or loud and boisterous. The band often makes use of celebratory group vocals over gospel-esque organs to give their songs a timeless bent. They fit right in with Southern rockers Alabama Shakes or soul-country aficionado Sturgill Simpson. This Arizona quintet have a bond that runs deeper than the usual band mates, and it shows when they perform. They will often fall into long sessions of improvisation and chemistry that will take you back to the west coast jam bands of the '60s, but with a country bent. Also performing: -Kolars [less-]

What if Americana actually encompassed ALL of North America? You'd have the Franco Acadian inflections of Canada, as best exemplified by le accordion, blues and jazz, the only truly indigenous musics the US has ever produced, and the lilting grace and fiery passion of the music of Mexico and Latin America. You'd also have New Orleans' premiere distillers of this continental musical melange, The Iguanas, and their newest album, Juarez. Taking their cues from all of the above influences and then some, Juarez, the band's first studio album since 2012's Sin to Sin, redefines the notion of Americana, crossing cultures, styles, eras...and even languages. It's as if Rue Bourbon, Muscle Shoals and Plaza México were all within earshot of each other and The Iguanas were the musical conduit between them. [less-]

The Flamin' Groovies are a San Francisco garage rock outfit that has been intermittently active since 1965. The band is credited with being a major influence on the power pop genre.

Pallbearer is an Arkansas doom metal band known for their innovative chord progressions, sludgy distortions and progressive sensibilities. The Little Rock band is obsessed with melody and complexity and churn out mesmerizing guitar riffs and bass lines as if their life depended on it. The band creates heavy, flying compositions that are as dark as they are grand. Simply seeing these pieces performed live is impressive as they pour their liquefied heart and soul into every note. Pallbearer has been a rising star in the metal scene, but they're making their way to simply becoming star musicians. Also performing: -CHRCH [less-]

This southern six-piece band takes advantage of their dual vocalists to create perfect harmonies that accompany the band's blend of acoustic and electronic instrumentation. Delta Rae is as much O' Brother Where Art Thou folk as they are modern indie rock that dominate the radio airwaves. They are an enjoyable blend of old and new that leaves listeners wanting more.

Jared and the Mill are an indie country band that would fit right in at a rural bar or on a Spotify playlist sponsored by Urban Outfitters. Their music can either be atmospheric and quiet or loud and boisterous. The band often makes use of celebratory group vocals over gospel-esque organs to give their songs a timeless bent. They fit right in with Southern rockers Alabama Shakes or soul-country aficionado Sturgill Simpson. This Arizona quintet have a bond that runs deeper than the usual band mates, and it shows when they perform. They will often fall into long sessions of improvisation and chemistry that will take you back to the west coast jam bands of the '60s, but with a country bent. Also performing: -Kolars [less-]

What if Americana actually encompassed ALL of North America? You'd have the Franco Acadian inflections of Canada, as best exemplified by le accordion, blues and jazz, the only truly indigenous musics the US has ever produced, and the lilting grace and fiery passion of the music of Mexico and Latin America. You'd also have New Orleans' premiere distillers of this continental musical melange, The Iguanas, and their newest album, Juarez. Taking their cues from all of the above influences and then some, Juarez, the band's first studio album since 2012's Sin to Sin, redefines the notion of Americana, crossing cultures, styles, eras...and even languages. It's as if Rue Bourbon, Muscle Shoals and Plaza México were all within earshot of each other and The Iguanas were the musical conduit between them. [less-]

The Flamin' Groovies are a San Francisco garage rock outfit that has been intermittently active since 1965. The band is credited with being a major influence on the power pop genre.

Pallbearer is an Arkansas doom metal band known for their innovative chord progressions, sludgy distortions and progressive sensibilities. The Little Rock band is obsessed with melody and complexity and churn out mesmerizing guitar riffs and bass lines as if their life depended on it. The band creates heavy, flying compositions that are as dark as they are grand. Simply seeing these pieces performed live is impressive as they pour their liquefied heart and soul into every note. Pallbearer has been a rising star in the metal scene, but they're making their way to simply becoming star musicians. Also performing: -CHRCH [less-]

This southern six-piece band takes advantage of their dual vocalists to create perfect harmonies that accompany the band's blend of acoustic and electronic instrumentation. Delta Rae is as much O' Brother Where Art Thou folk as they are modern indie rock that dominate the radio airwaves. They are an enjoyable blend of old and new that leaves listeners wanting more.
