The Redstone Room

Friday, March 15, 8:30 p.m.

 

On March 15, the Redstone Room will host an evening with a musician who received a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album, toured with the likes of Lyle Lovett and Dolly Parton, served as guest host for Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion, and has been a nationally renowned vocalist and fiddle player for more than 22 years.

I will attempt not to seethe with resentment at the fact that the musician in question is only 31 years old.

It’s the oldest of stories. Girl loves boy. Girl marries boy. Girl gets a letter from her late father and trips down the stairs and dies and takes an elevator to the underworld and lives in a room fashioned entirely of string and meets a trio of talking stones ... .

No, seriously, it’s the oldest of stories. It’s just being told in a new and strange and wonderful way.

Redeemer Lutheran Church

From the New York Times: “Technically in control and interpretively most persuasive.”

From the Washington Post: “Impressive technique and a fine sense of style.”

From Greenwich Time magazine: “Hauntingly beautiful, tastefully phrased with exquisite nuance, and yet with an aristocratic understatement that held his audience spellbound.”

And no, I’m not starting yet another one of these What’s Happenin’ articles by talking about my own work. But I’m touched by your confusion.

Upright Citizens Brigade Touring Company

Augustana College

Saturday, January 26, 8 p.m.

 

On January 26, Augustana College’s Centennial Hall will host an evening with members of the Upright Citizens Brigade Touring Company, and you can learn a lot about the acclaimed comedy troupe by visiting its Web site at UCBTourCo.com. For instance, you’ll learn that, as the ensemble’s home page states, “mainstream comedy is for jerks,” and that its touring show with Brigade performer Horatio Sanz “will make you wet yourself with laughter,” and its Blackout Drunk production boasts a “lack of self-control” and “an appalling lack of shame” ... .

Hey ... wait a minute ... . You don’t think that calling themselves “Upright Citizens” is meant jokingly, do you ... ?

An Evening with Julian Lage

The Redstone Room

Wednesday, January 16, 7:30 p.m.

 

Welcome to the Reader’s first What’s Happenin’ section of 2013! We’re glad to have you with us, and as a way of starting the new year on the right foot, I’ve made a resolution: I have decided that, from this day forward, I will no longer seethe with jealousy and resentment every time I write about some visiting artist whose talents and accomplishments dwarf my own.

Having said that, let me tell you about January 16’s Redstone Room concert with jazz guitarist Julian Lage, a former child prodigy who began performing in public at age six, became the subject of an Oscar-nominated documentary appropriately titled Jules at Eight, performed at the Grammy Awards at age 13 ... .

Oh, man. This is gonna be rough.
