Christ the King Chapel

Saturday, December 6, 7 p.m.

 

Augustana College’s seasonal celebration Christmas at Augustana, showcasing numerous students from the school’s choirs, will be held on December 5 at 8 p.m. and December 6 at 4 p.m.

You know what that means, right? There’s no need to choose between these events at institutions separated by a river – they’ve been scheduled so we can attend both! It’s like the Christmas truce of World War I all over again! And exactly 100 years later, to boot!

The Legendary Shack ShakersMusic

Legendary Shack Shakers

Rock Island Brewing Company

Friday, November 14, 9 p.m.

 

On November 14, the Rock Island Brewing Company hosts an evening with the Legendary Shack Shakers, rockabilly/blues musicians whom Stephen King has called a “dynamite group” whose output “I actually play when I’m working, pretending to work, or just goofing around.” Given that the band’s discography includes the songs “Blood on the Bluegrass,” “The Hills of Hell,” “Sin Eater,” and “Hellwater,” why King is goofing around when he could instead be adapting Legendary Shack Shakers songs into horror novels is beyond me.

Anchee MinLiterature

Anchee Min

St. Ambrose University

Thursday, November 6, 5:30 p.m.

 

For this year’s eighth-annual International Women Authors Event hosted by the Women’s Connection – taking place at St. Ambrose University’s Rogalski Center on November 6 – the guest speaker is award-winning author Anchee Min. And I truly don’t mean to trivialize our area visitor or the speaker’s past in any way, but I think I’ve now found my dream role if anyone ever commits Min’s life story to the screen. I’d be absolutely perfect for the part ... if only I were 10 years older ... and a woman ... and Chinese-American ... and a much, much better writer ... .

Break of RealityMusic

Break of Reality

St. Ambrose University

Saturday, October 25, 7:30 p.m.

 

Break of Reality, the latest guests in Quad City Arts’ Visiting Artists series, is a cello-rock ensemble whose performers are as versed in the musical languages of Radiohead and Led Zeppelin as they are in that of Johann Sebastian Bach. Yet how many musicians can also boast an equal fluency in the language of Dothraki?

Grace AskewMusic

Grace Askew

Rozz-Tox

Sunday, October 12, 8 p.m.

 

Webster’s dictionary defines “grace” as “a way of moving that is smooth and attractive.” Webster’s dictionary defines “askew” as “at an angle.” An author who begins an article with “Webster’s dictionary defines,” meanwhile, is defined as “unoriginal” and “desperate,” but that’s neither here nor there.
