    Wham City Comedy Tour

      “Wham City brings batshit comedy back to the East Coast.” That’s a bold statement, and the comic brain trust behind the 2014 Wham City Comedy Tour—fresh off their Adult Swim debut—promise to back it up. This Wednesday, the Baltimore-based group will bring a 75-minute show featuring four comedians (Alan Resnick, Ben O’Brien, Robby Rackleff [...]

    Under the Influence (of the New York School)

      The new exhibit at the Carrie Haddad Gallery features three artists influenced by the New York school of abstract impressionism—including one artist, Judith Lindbloom, who was briefly a part of that 1950s scene. The other artists in the show are William Bond Walker and Lionel Gilbert. Pictured is Lindbloom’s Archaeology of Flying Bison (1986). [...]

    Boeing Boeing

      In this classic farce, a Don Juan in 1960s Paris has three flight-attendant—OK, stewardess—girlfriends. Each stewardess is a different nationality and flies for a different airline; their schedules ensure that the three never meet. That is, until the introduction of faster Boeing-made jets wrecks the lothario’s love timetable. Home Made Theater’s production of Boeing [...]

    Zucchero

      Adelmo Fornaciari (aka Zucchero, Italian for sugar) is an internationally renowned Italian pop-rock and blues songwriter and performer. While he achieved moderate success in his early days, it was after meeting a then-unknown Randy Jackson in San Francisco that his career took a turning point. The duo teamed up to create the 1985 album [...]

    Bring It On: The Musical

      The Tony Award-nominated Broadway hit about a high-stakes cheerleading competition comes to Proctors for a two-day stand beginning Friday. Based on the hit movie Bring It On (which has also inspired an entire series of direct-to-video sequels), this production sports an all-star creative team behind the scenes, and scene-stealing acrobatics, aerial stunts and “sass” [...]

    B.B. King

      The man is 88 years old. Just go on and marinate on that for a minute. The man has been playing the blues since the ’40s. Let that sink in for a second. Everything else we could tell you in this space is superfluous. King’s current American tour has been a little rocky, with [...]

    Ben Taylor

      The son of a musical power couple, Ben Taylor grew up living in the midst of five-time Grammy-award-winning singer-songwriter James Taylor and his mother Carly Simon, best known for her classic hit “You’re So Vain.” While music was in his blood, it wasn’t until 2003 that Taylor released his first official album, Famous Among [...]
  • The Mountain Goats - John Darnielle, Peter Hughes, Jon Wurster, December 2010.

    The Mountain Goats

      The Mountain Goats are mainly John Darnielle. And his guitar. And his songs. It was that way for a very long time. Darnielle started recording under the name in the early ’90s before getting picked up by 4AD in the early aughts. Now the band are a proper (power?) trio featuring longtime bassist Peter [...]
