Matt & Ben


Saturday, December 14, 8 p.m., and Sunday, December 15, 3 p.m.


If you’re in your early 20s or younger, you probably know Matt Damon as the cool, laid-back star of Elysium and the Jason Bourne movies, and probably know Ben Affleck as the cool, laid-back director/star of Argo and The Town. Regardless, and depending on your level of vitriol about Affleck playing Batman, you probably like the guys. But if you can believe it, there actually was a time, not so very long ago, when both celebrities were ... . Gosh, what’s the word ... ? Hated. A lot.

The Life & Times Tour

Rock Island Brewing Company

Friday, November 29, 9 p.m.


The Rock Island Brewing Company has a very special engagement set for November 29, when the District venue hosts a night with the visiting performers of “The Life & Times Tour.” Ah-h-h ... . “The Life & Times Tour.” Sounds so nostalgic! So hearth-and-home! And apparently, the tour features two gentlemen from suburban Georgia, and a young woman who based her stage name on Snow White! Let’s meet these family-friendly artists, shall we?

Holiday Pops featuring Debby Boone

i wireless Center

Saturday, November 23, 7:30 p.m.


Not that you’d know it from these pages, but when in public, I do try to behave with a fair amount of professional decorum. Yet this past September, when I ran into Steve Jobman – the artistic director for the Quad City Symphony Orchestra’s November 23 Holiday Pops concert at the i wireless Center – and he told me they’d secured Grammy winner Debby Boone as this year’s featured vocalist, I’ll admit it: I squealed like a little girl. Apologies to those nearby who thought I maybe saw a mouse.

International Chamber Soloists

Galvin Fine Arts Center

Friday, November 8, 7:30 p.m.


A very special guest is set to amaze audiences at St. Ambrose University’s Galvin Fine Arts Center, and when I first learned that the Toronto Star called this individual “a superbly equipped player with a rock-steady bow arm and ultra-confident technique,” my initial thought was: Awesome! Katniss Everdeen!

And then I remembered that the guest in question was actually Dmitri Berlinsky, the lead violinist and front man for the acclaimed musicians of International Chamber Soloists. And then I remembered that Katniss Everdeen is fictional. Sometimes I’m a bit slow on the uptake.

T. Hardy Morris


Thursday, October 24, 9 p.m.


Founding Dead Confederate musician T. Hardy Morris performs a special concert at Rock Island’s Rozz-Tox on October 24, and in reviewing the singer/songwriter/guitarist’s solo debut Audition Tapes this past summer, Paste magazine wrote, “It’s like Morris abandoned the ’shrooms in favor of a nice Americana-nodding spliff.” The review went on to call the CD’s title track “a simple slice of alt-country pie” with “a scoop of emo melting across the molasses-drenched crust,” and the album itself “an all-ages potluck” and “worth a toast.”

Gosh, that’s an awful lot of food references. Are we sure it’s not the Paste author who favored that nice Americana-nodding spliff?
