Lyrics Born

The Redstone Room

Friday, August 26, 9p.m.

 

On August 26, Davenport’s Redstone Room presents a special evening with record producer, songwriter, and hip-hop and rap artist Lyrics Born. I’m sure the man’s parents are thrilled about his success, because if you christen your child “Lyrics” and he doesn’t go into the music industry, it’s really just a waste of the name.

A Lesson Before DyingTheatre

A Lesson Before Dying

Playcrafters Barn Theatre

Friday, July 15, through Sunday, July 24

 

Running July 15 through 24, the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s latest production is author Romulus Linney’s A Lesson Before Dying. And yes, the title does feature a particular word that might make you think the show is depressing as all get-out. Allow me, though, to alleviate your fears: Just because a production has “lesson” in the title doesn’t mean it’s downbeat! There are all sorts of fun lessons out there! Piano lessons, dance lessons, – !

What’s that? It was the word “dying” that made you think the play was a downer? Hmm. I hadn’t thought of that ... .

Das EFXMusic

Das EFX and David Allan Coe

Rock Island Brewing Company

Saturday, June 25, and Friday, July 1

 

With the hip-hop artists of Das EFX playing the Rock Island Brewing Company on June 25, and outlaw-country musician David Allan Coe playing RIBCO on July 1, my editor, Jeff, thought it would be fun if I wrote a combined What’s Happenin’ piece on both concerts. After all, beyond the venue they’re appearing in, these disparate performers must have something in common, right?
