Gene Ween

Rock Island Brewing Company

Thursday, September 8, 8:30 p.m.

 

You know how there are particular bands and performers you listen to when you’re happy, and others that you listen to when you’re sad, and others that you listen to when you’re stuck in road-construction traffic and people are honking their horns and refusing to merge correctly and you need to hear something soothing before you rip the freakin’ steering wheel off with your bare hands?!? (Not that, you know, any of us in the Quad Cities has ever experienced that feeling.)

Lyrics Born

The Redstone Room

Friday, August 26, 9p.m.

 

On August 26, Davenport’s Redstone Room presents a special evening with record producer, songwriter, and hip-hop and rap artist Lyrics Born. I’m sure the man’s parents are thrilled about his success, because if you christen your child “Lyrics” and he doesn’t go into the music industry, it’s really just a waste of the name.

A Lesson Before DyingTheatre

A Lesson Before Dying

Playcrafters Barn Theatre

Friday, July 15, through Sunday, July 24

 

Running July 15 through 24, the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s latest production is author Romulus Linney’s A Lesson Before Dying. And yes, the title does feature a particular word that might make you think the show is depressing as all get-out. Allow me, though, to alleviate your fears: Just because a production has “lesson” in the title doesn’t mean it’s downbeat! There are all sorts of fun lessons out there! Piano lessons, dance lessons, – !

What’s that? It was the word “dying” that made you think the play was a downer? Hmm. I hadn’t thought of that ... .
