Galvin Fine Arts Center

Saturday, November 5, 7:30 p.m.

 

The latest presentation in the Galvin Fine Arts Center’s Performing Arts Series will take place on November 5, and according to the L.A. Daily News, the act booked for the St. Ambrose University venue “can work up some powerful emotions, make a religion out of lonely introspection, and even crack the occasional Canada joke.” And no, it’s not President Obama.

The Chris Greene Quartet

The Redstone Room

Sunday, October 16

 

For the latest presentation in Polyrhythms’ Third Sunday Jazz Series, the Redstone Room will host an October 16 workshop and concert with the lauded Chicago musicians of the Chris Greene Quartet, whose saxophone-playing front man was described by DownBeat magazine as “a stupid-funky tenor and soprano player.” Ironically, that’s exactly how people described me in my youth. Except it was in regard to my involvement in choir. And they didn’t say “player.” Or “funky.” I don’t really want to talk about it.

God of Carnage

Village Theatre

Thursday, October 6, through Sunday, October 16

 

A living-room set. Four well-dressed characters. Conversation about careers and families and relationships. Basically a play like any other ... except for the projectile vomiting.

Little Big Town

Adler Theatre

Saturday, September 17, 7:30 p.m.

 

Playing Davenport’s Adler Theatre on September 17, the lauded country stars of Little Big Town – Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet, and Jimi Westbrook – have been with the group since its 2002 CD debut, have publicly admitted to being dear friends, and are all currently married with children, with Fairchild and Westbrook married (with a child) to each other.

No musician turnover over the years? No incessant squabbling? Stable relationships? What the hell kind of abnormal band is this?!

You know how there are particular bands and performers you listen to when you’re happy, and others that you listen to when you’re sad, and others that you listen to when you’re stuck in road-construction traffic and people are honking their horns and refusing to merge correctly and you need to hear something soothing before you rip the freakin’ steering wheel off with your bare hands?!? (Not that, you know, any of us in the Quad Cities has ever experienced that feeling.)
