    Cirque Dreams Holidaze

      There truly is a “cirque” for all seasons. The creators of Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy are back with Cirque Dreams Holidaze. It’s a cirque show, a Broadway musical, a family entertainment and a holiday spectacular all rolled into one. (Maybe we should have written “tumbled” into one.) The Dallas Morning News praised Cirque Dreams [...]

    Max & Ruby’s Nutcracker

      The Egg’s Family Wonders series continues this Saturday with an unusual take on that holiday favorite, The Nutcracker.

    Holiday Folk Show

      It’s time again for a seasonal gathering of the acoustic tribes, as Caffe Lena presents its annual Holiday Folk Show. Featuring John Kirk and Trish Miller (pictured), David Kiphuth and Addie & Olin, it’s a combination “Candlemas-Hanukkah-Ramadan-Solstice-Christmas-Kwanzaa-New Year-Boxing Day-Epiphany Event.” (They probably left Festivus out because, well, the airing of the grievances isn’t often [...]

    Chuck Ragan & the Camaraderie

      Chuck Ragan was the guitarist and one of the lead singers for Hot Water Music. So. Yeah. Enough said. The Gainesville-based punk-rock band kicked ass from 1993 to 2005, when they broke up on good terms and Ragan went on to pursue a solo career in acoustic folk music until the band reunited for [...]

    Robert Randolph & the Family Band

      Robert Randolph was trained in the House of God Church on the “Sacred Steel”—what many African-American Pentecostal churches call the pedal steel guitar—and he was discovered while playing at a sacred steel convention in Florida. In fact, before the secular music world found him, Randolph says he had almost no exposure to nonreligious music. [...]

    John Oliver

      British comedian John Oliver is an American now, but his outsider’s sensibility still informs his politically astute comedy. Oliver may have come to prominence via the Daily Show and multiple appearances on other Comedy Central shows, but it’s his new gig at HBO that’s really cemented his status as an heir to Jon Stewart [...]
