Naomi and Wynonna JuddMusic

The Judds: The Last Encore

i wireless Center

Sunday, November 28, 7 p.m.

 

By now, I’m presuming, we all pretty much know that Wikipedia shouldn’t be taken as the final word on any given subject. But I’ll admit that I was still taken aback by the very first sentence in its entry on a legendary musical act: “The Judds were an American country-music duo composed of Naomi Judd and her daughter, Wynnona Judd.” May I ask, Wikipedia: What the hell’s with the past tense?!

Maggie BrownMusic

Third Sunday Jazz featuring Maggie Brown

The Redstone Room

Sunday, November 21

 

“There is a lot of great music out here,” says performer Maggie Brown in a recent Chicago Defender interview. “It is not popularized. It’s not going to come to you on the radio, or on a CD. You have to look for it.”

Well, folks, you can stop looking; great music can be found at Davenport’s Redstone Room on November 21. Appearing as the latest guest in Polyrhythms’ monthly Third Sunday Jazz Series, the Chicago-based Maggie Brown will present a 3 p.m. jazz workshop and a 6 p.m. concert of bound-to-be-thrilling solos, underscoring why the Defender describes her as “a phenomenal artist who has loads of individual style.”

Tomas KubinekMusic

Tomáš Kubínek & Orchestra Iowa: Professor Kubínek Meets the Symphony

Iowa City West High School

Friday, November 5, 7:30 p.m.

 

Czech-born entertainer Tomáš Kubínek, who has displayed his ingratiating talents everywhere from Tokyo’s Asahi Hall to Broadway’s New Victory Theatre, is a multi-hyphenate if ever there was one: a musician-comedian-magician-director-vaudevillian-inventor-clown-award-winning-housefly-catcher. (Check out his Web site at Kubinek.com. I am so not kidding about that last one.)

If you’re familiar with our calendars of events at RCReader.com, you know that event listings are separated into a number of different categories, among them “Music,” “Lectures,” “Visual Arts,” “Movies,” and “Kids’ Stuff.” Bill Birdsong Miller might be the only visiting artist I’ve run across whose credits make him a good fit for all of them.

Microbes: Invisible Invaders, Amazing AlliesExhibit

Microbes: Invisible Invaders, Amazing Allies

Putnam Museum & IMAX Theatre

Saturday, October 2, through Sunday, January 30

 

According to the Putnam Museum & IMAX Theatre’s Web site, the venue’s new exhibit offers an exploration of that “which sustains all life on earth while holding the deadly potential to wipe out millions.” Much like my What’s Happenin’ jokes.
