Luke RedfieldMusic

Luke Redfield

Rozz-Tox

Wednesday, November 4, 8 p.m.

 

If you’re reading this article hot off the (electronic) presses, folk singer/songwriter Luke Redfield’s new EP Uncover the Magic – described by GoodMoMusic.net as “haunting and alluring” – will have been released less than a week ago. You also have roughly a week to commit the EP to memory before November 4 lands, when Minnesota native Redfield makes one of his early tour stops at Rock Island’s Rozz-Tox. I urge you, though, to resist singing along even if you know every lyric of Uncover the Magic by heart. I made a similar mistake at a recent Wiggles concert and got such strange looks ... .

Christine Broughton and Emily Mason in MachinalTheatre

Machinal

Augustana College

Friday, October 16, through Sunday, October 25

 

Last month, playwright Sophie Treadwell’s expressionistic drama Machinal – a work inspired by a real-life 1927 murder – celebrated the 87th anniversary of its Broadway debut. But when Augustana College stages this little-known classic October 16 through 25, it won’t exactly be the same show New York audiences saw in 1928. For one thing, it won’t feature Clark Gable in his Broadway debut. For another, I’m reasonably sure the original didn’t incorporate the talents of a beatboxer.

The Original Night People 50th Draught House Reunion

Col Ballroom

Saturday, October 10, 6 p.m.

 

On October 10, Davenport’s Col Ballroom will host a special concert event officially titled “The Original Night People 50th Draught House Reunion.” And local music fans will surely know the Night People, at least by reputation – and especially if they’re also local-music (with the hyphen) fans.

Javier Colon

Galvin Fine Arts Center

Friday, September 18, 8 p.m.

 

Back in the day – by which I mean a couple decades ago – friends and I would frequent karaoke nights and challenge one another to perform randomly picked songs. On one of those nights, I wound up faced with the challenge of singing Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time,” which I (and the pour souls listening) mercifully survived. Consequently, I feel a true kinship with performer Javier Colon, who, in April of 2011, crooned the same Lauper hit on the debut episode of TV’s The Voice.

Of course, Colon sang it better than I did ... and for a few million people as opposed to a few dozen ... and I don’t recall getting $100,000 and a recording contract for my efforts ... .

Celtic Woman -- October 17Events

Adler Theatre

October and November

 

“Mademoiselles, messieurs: It is with deepest pride, and greatest pleasure, that we welcome you tonight. And now we invite you to relax, let us pull up some chairs, as the Adler Theatre proudly presents – your autumn!” Okay, so that may not be the official greeting at the Davenport venue these days. But the Adler could do worse than steal from the candlestick Lumiere’s “Be Our Guest” intro, considering how many fall events the theatre will be proudly presenting – among them the touring production of the Tony-winning fairytale musical Beauty & the Beast (November 3).
