Brandon Cook Landscapes at Finch Lane Gallery

Brandon Cook paints natural elements found in landscapes. He has titled his exhibition “Aeonic,” a derivative of the word aeonian, meaning to last for an immeasurable or indefinitely long period of time. “The malleable elements of the landscape allow a painting to come to life on the canvas,” Cook says. “In the act of painting - a process that takes advantage of chance and glimpsed possibilities - the creative vision of mind and spirit is fused.”

Cook’s interest in the physical qualities of the materials he employs - the viscosity of oil paints, the texture of canvas and the luminosity of multiple glazes - is matched by his interest in the ability of the visible to metaphorically explore the invisible.

Altared Books: Offerings in Con(text)

For decades, contemporary artists have created altered books using existing books or text and modifying them into a new art form. In the exhibition titled Altared Books: Offerings in (Con)text, the pieces created by a selection of artists are presented in the context of the book as part of an offering. Offering being defined as a sacrificial rite, a gift of great value, or a spiritual undertaking. Altars are spaces where offerings and sacraments take place, where people are united, or where they worship. The exhibition presents a space (altar) where artists’ altered books are offered for visitors to consider the meaning of the different pieces. For this juried exhibition, artists submitted books that represented something sacrificial, valuable, or spiritual—something to be placed on a metaphorical altar. Selected artists include Carol Berrey, Emily Dyer, Frank McEntire, Jody Plant, Chauncey Secrist, Nancy Steele-Makasci, and Loné Vilnius.

Catch Me If You Can at Hale Centre Theatre

Based on the true story of Frank Abagnale Jr., this new musical tells the story of a teenager who runs away from home in search of a glamorous life. With nothing more than his boyish charm, a big imagination and millions of dollars in forged checks, Frank successfully poses as a pilot, a doctor and a lawyer — living the high life and winning the girl of his dreams. But when Frank’s lies catch the attention of FBI agent Carl Hanratty, Carl chases Frank to the end — and finds something he never expected.

The Felice Brothers

The Felice Brothers with special guest Spirit Family Reunion, presented by KRCL 90.9 FM KRCL

The Felice Brothers kicked off in 2006. They did what any delinquent youths, lost in upstate New York with dim job prospects would do: become obsessed with traveling the world and playing extremely loud rock and roll. After settling on minor matters like who plays what (Ian Felice- vocals/guitar, James Felice- accordion/keys/vocals, Greg Farley- fiddle/vocals, Josh Rawson- bass/vocals. Recent addition David Estabrook- old friend/new drummer – completes the current line up), the band procured instruments, cans of sardines and packed up tents and devoted their lives to studying the art of song craft, from Hoagie Carmichael to Kurt Cobain. They also began figuring out how to actually play those instruments. It was a long way to the top.

The Lone Bellow

Zach Williams, the Lone Bellow's lead singer and principal songwriter, can pinpoint just about exactly when the Brooklyn-based group serendipitously willed itself into being. It was around 9 a.m. one morning in 2010, at Dizzy's Diner in Park Slope, Brooklyn, where the Lone Bellows guitarist and Williams' old friend Brian Elmquist was working a shift. Williams, up to then performing as a solo artist, needed a place to try out some new songs; for a scuffling artist, the diner was as good as any rehearsal space. He asked fellow singer Kanene Pipkin, just returned to New York City from living in Beijing, to meet them at the diner and the trio did more than merely jam. With the beginnings of a repertoire and an already strong communal spirit, that fateful morning they became the Lone Bellow. As Williams recalls, "Three songs in I realized I should quit what I'm doing and just make music with these people."

Griffin House

Griffin House was born and raised in Springfield, Ohio. His father worked in a tire shop and his mother helped place children with foster families. In high school, the athletically gifted House landed a role in a musical and was surprised to learn that he had a natural talent for singing. House bought his first guitar for $100 from a friend, turned down a golf scholarship to Ohio University and instead went to Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and started to teach himself how to play the guitar and write songs.

There are approximately 2,000 miles between Nashville and Los Angeles. Both cities are home to JOHNNYSWIM. However, the duo's music far transcends that distance. It's easy to understand why A Prairie Home Companion declared that Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano Ramirez are "21st century troubadours." As JOHNNYSWIM, they embody the tradition of the well-traveled singer-songwriter while cultivating a modern style that's uniquely their own.

Rachael Yamagata with special guests The Dove & The Wolf and Hemming

Presented by KRCL 90.9 FM KRCL Transparent

Rachael Yamagata has been called 'the troubadour of heartbreak' by the press and fans are drawn to her ability to 'turn emotion into song'. She's got the old soul singer songwriter essence that calls upon Todd Rundgren, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, The Carpenters and Elton John and sonically gravitates towards the darker stylings of Nick Cave, Tom Waits, P.J. Harvey and Danny Elfman.

Ásgeir with special guest Low Roar

Presented by KRCL 90.9 FM KRCL Transparent

Hollywood screenwriters couldn't have scripted the musical ascent of Icelandic phenom Ásgeir any better. Dýrð í dauðaþögn, an album the 21-year-old recorded just for fun, became an overnight sensation in his home country. Buoyed by haunting, shimmering folktronica textures—and driven by lyrics penned by his dad, a retired school principal—the record became the best-selling debut record ever in Iceland, beating out even superstars such as Björk and Sigur Rós.

Wayne Hancock

Presented by KRCL 90.9 FM KRCL

"Wayne Hancock has more Hank Sr. in him than either I or Hank Williams Jr. He is the real deal." - Hank III "Hancock, who tosses out a roots mix of old country, roadhouse blues, western dance swing, boogie bop, and straight-up rockabilly, takes what was once old and makes it seem like it's always been and always will be." - allmusic.com "The country music scene could do with a lot more characters like Wayne, who push the music's limits while staying truer to its roots than any well-known names associated with the genre today." – Slug Magazine
