The 4onthefloor

Rock Island Brewing Company

Friday, April 19, 9:30 p.m.

 

On April 19, the Rock Island Brewing Company hosts an evening with The 4onthefloor, the Minneapolis-based blues-rock outfit noted for all of its songs being written in 4/4 time, and for each of the group’s musicians playing a bass drum. Band member James Gould has called this format “limiting in a way that really forces you to be more creative.” Which is exactly how I describe my writing talents ... but usually without that “creative” part.

Wayne “The Train” Hancock

Rock Island Brewing Company

Saturday, April 6, 9:30 p.m.

 

Acclaimed country musician Wayne “The Train” Hancock plays a Rock Island Brewing Company concert on April 6, and you’ll need to be at least 21 to attend. However, all ages are welcome to learn about the artist’s gifts right here! AllMusic.com, for instance, calls Hancock “arguably the finest country traditionalist working the 21st Century country scene.” And Scram Magazine, which describes Hancock’s 2003 CD Swing Time as “a great goddam live album,” raves that Hancock “imbues his material with the kind of I-don’t-give-a-f--k edge that pushes each and every one of these ’old-fashioned songs’ right up into your face.”

Hmm. Given the language, maybe you should be at least 21 to read this article, too.

It seems to have taken forever to get here, but guess what, folks? Spring officially starts this week! The sun is shining! Birds are singing! And over at the QC Theatre Workshop, the season’s arrival is being celebrated by our area’s classical-theatre troupe the Prenzie Players with angry gods, family dishonor, rebellion, treachery, imprisonment, suicide ... !

Wow, Prenzies. Like a nice production of Barefoot in the Park would’ve killed ya?

Sara Watkins

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.

Eurydice

Galvin Fine Arts Center

Friday, February 22, through Sunday, February 24

 

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.
