Juan Angel ChavezExhibit

No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service

Figge Art Museum

Saturday, June 29, through Sunday, October 6

 

Beginning on June 29, Davenport’s Figge Art Museum will be house a special, site-specific installation by Juan Angel Chavez, and on the venue’s Web site, the Chicago-based artist’s intention with the piece is stated thusly: “In his use of refuse and other found objects, Chavez seeks to draw attention to socially deviant behavior and other ‘unwanted’ activities.”

The man could’ve saved himself a lot of trouble, and a lot of refuse, merely by peeking in the windows of the nearby Reader offices, but I won’t tell him if you won’t.

Souls of MischiefMusic

Souls of Mischief

Rock Island Brewing Company

Saturday, June 22, 8:30 p.m.

 

Do you consider yourself a big fan of the hip-hop ensemble Souls of Mischief? Do you consider yourself such a big fan that you could recite every word in the group’s 93 ’til Infinity album by memory? Then prove it, smart guy! Prove it!

What I mean is that you can prove it if you attend Souls of Mischief’s June 22 concert at the Rock Island Brewing Company, and mouth along while the artists perform 93 ’til Infinity in its entirety. Sorry if that “Prove it!” came off a little confrontational. I would’ve followed it with a wink-y emoticon, but I think that looks kinda stupid in print.

Jessica Warren-Acosta & Marguerite Lynn Williams

Figge Art Museum

Saturday, June 1, 6:30 p.m.

 

If you’re looking to enjoy an afternoon of musical entertainment and cultural enrichment, I urge you to take this article’s information to heart. Why? Because I’ve got principals.

No, that’s not a misspelling. What I mean is that I have news about a special concert featuring Jessica Warren-Acosta, the principal flutist for the Quad City Symphony Orchestra, and Marguerite Lynn Williams, the principal harpist for the Lyric Opera of Chicago. If I actually had principles, I wouldn’t make you suffer through lame What’s Happenin’ puns every two weeks.

Joe Louis Walker

The Redstone Room

Friday, May 24, 8 p.m.

 

Blues, soul, and gospel musician Joe Louis Walker, who plays Davenport’s Redstone Room on May 24, was born on December 25, 1949. If you’re hip to the man’s talents through recordings, concerts, or TV appearances, I think you’ll agree that we all got a Christmas present that day.

Bruce Robison and Kelly Willis

The Redstone Room

Saturday, May 4, 8:30 p.m.

 

First, there was Bennifer. Then there was Brangelina. Then there was TomKat. And now, with their Redstone Room concert scheduled for May 4, local audiences will be treated to the artistic gifts and personal charisma of America’s latest celebrity super-couple: Bruce Robinson and Kelly Willis. Or, using the nickname I prefer, BruceWillis!

Wow, that’s a terrible nickname ... . Let me reconsider that one and get back to you ... .
