    Dale Watson and His Lonestars

      This Wednesday, Troy welcomes Austin’s “king of honky tonk,” Dale Watson, to the Hangar. Born in Alabama and raised in Texas, Dale Watson is one of the original alt-country rebels. He started spurning the commercial styles of mainstream Nashville back in the late 1980s, and has forged his own musical path ever since. The [...]

    Intolerance

      D.W. Griffith’s silent film epic Intolerance is a stupendous spectacle and strikingly modern cinematic achievement. Griffith had the idea of telling four stories simultaneously, cutting back-and-forth thematically from one to the other. So, together, we are presented with the fall of ancient Babylon, Christ’s crucifixion, the massacre of the Huguenots in 1572 France and [...]

    Heroes

      When Tom Stoppard translated a French play set in an old soldiers’ home, he applied his particular comic genius and turned it into a “hysterical romp” about three World War I vets plotting their escape from unwelcome confinement. The result, Heroes, will be presented beginning this weekend by the Ghent Playhouse in a production [...]

    Empire State Youth Orchestra

      Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana is one of the most popular works in the classical repertoire this side of Wagner. It’s a perennial favorite for its drama and scale, and is deployed on movie soundtracks whenever a world war is about to break out or the antichrist is about to be born. And Carmina Burana [...]

    Jim Breuer

      Jim Breuer can’t help the fact that he looks high when, in fact, he is not. But it remains a weird comic trademark for the Half Baked and ex-SNL star turned family-man stand-up comedian. “I think I always stayed in that storyteller world,” Breuer told the Boston Globe last November. “I think I now [...]

    Ani DiFranco

      The Righteous Babe returns—and her solo show at the Egg is already sold out. Ani DiFranco has been a frequent visitor to this area ever since her emergence in New York City in the early 1990s, and so she is well known for her galvanizing live appearances, which are fueled by her prickly, pithy, [...]

    August Burns Red, Miss May I, Northlane, Erra

      Despite their incendiary moniker—and some red-hot reviews for their last release, Rescue & Restore—August Burns Red are a Christian band who began by practicing in an old egg house on the drummer’s family farm in Manheim, Pa. And though they play blistering, odd-meter metalcore (with comparisons to As I Lay Dying), the band are [...]

    Marshall Crenshaw, the Bottle Rockets

      Influenced by Buddy Holly, Burt Bacharach and the British Invasion phenomenon (and a little soul), Marshall Crenshaw has had a prolific career since the early ’80s. He performed his Top 40 hit “Someday, Someway” for Letterman in 1982, co-wrote the Gin Blossoms hit “Til I Hear It From You” from the movie Empire Records [...]
