    Ian Hunter and the Rant Band

      For years there was a local singer-songwriter named “Ian Hunter,” and we’d list his gigs, always thinking for a split second, “that Ian Hunter?” before realizing, no, it’s the nice, talented local dude with the same name as the English rock legend. Well, golly, look who’s coming to Helsinki Hudson this Saturday: that Ian […]

    Liz Miele

      Like all comedians worth their salt, New York City-based Liz Miele has been doing stand-up forever. Well, at least since she was a teenager. She’s been on Conan’s show and Jon Stewart’s old show and various Comedy Central specials—again, like any comic worth her salt. Her debut comedy album, Emotionally Exhausting, has been very […]

    Idina Menzel

      Broadway audiences have known and loved Idina Menzel, who’s performing at Tanglewood on Saturday night, for almost two decades. This is thanks in large part to her star-making turns as the fiancée/girlfriend from hell in Rent and as Elphaba, the considerably more complex take on the emerald-hued Wicked Witch of the West in Stephen […]

    Psycho

      There was a pretty terrible movie called Hitchcock released a couple of years ago. It was a petty and not particularly insightful portrait of director Alfred Hitchcock at the time he was taking the biggest risk of his career in making the serial-killer thriller, Psycho. Still, it was impossible to look away from even […]

    Counting Crows

      Anyone who listened to the radio in the mid-‘90s knows Counting Crows: Their breakout album, August and Everything After, featured the hit songs “Mr. Jones” (commence earworm), “Rain King” and “Round Here,” a prettier cover of the Himalayans song that Crows frontman Adam Duritz wrote with members of that band before forming the Crows […]

    Roomful of Teeth

      This Grammy-winning vocal nine-piece call themselves “a band not a choir” while stating their dedication “to mining the potential of the human voice,” including Tuvan throat singing, Appalachian yodeling, operatic Persian trilling, and whispered speech, incorporated into mystical and serene soundscapes written by the most exciting young composers of the 21st century, including founding […]

    Powered Narratives

      American-born John Stanmeyer is an internationally acclaimed photographer for National Geographic and Time, and large-scale examples of his work are the focus of Powered Narratives, the solo show opening this weekend at the Berkshire Museum. Curator Maria Mingalone says, in the exhibit notes, that Stanmeyer’s “photographs are energetic stories that propel you into the […]

    Kevin Hart

      Kevin Hart is the biggest comedian in America today—and probably tomorrow, too, thanks to the likelihood that his second buddy cop movie with Ice Cube is going to be as big a hit, if not bigger, than his first. Hart’s What Now Tour, which comes to the Times Union Center tonight, is a wild […]

    Thoroughly Modern Millie

      The summer arts season is winding down near and far—but not in Chatham, where today (Thursday), the Mac-Haydn Theatre is opening its next production, the effervescent 1920s-style musical comedy Thoroughly Modern Millie. It’s the story of a poor girl looking for a rich husband; a rich boy looking to avoid becoming a husband; a […]
