Local H

Rock Island Brewing Company

Friday, April 6, 9p.m.

 

Before embarking on an East Coast tour that takes the duo to New York, Massachusetts, and Delaware, the alternative rockers of Local H will, on April 6, play a concert at the Rock Island Brewing Company.

Rock Island? Hey, that’s where I live! “Rock Island! Woo-hoo! Ye-e-e-e-ea-a-ah-h!!!”

Sorry. Just thought it’d be fun to act like one of those concertgoers who does that sort of thing.

Jessica Denney and Pat Flaherty rehearse Mr. MarmaladeTheatre

Mr. Marmalade

Village Theatre

Thursday, March 22, through Sunday, April 1

 

Mr. Marmalade, which Davenport’s New Ground Theatre will stage from March 22 through April 1, is a comedy about a four-year-old girl named Lucy and her imaginary playmate of the show’s title. A businessman with bipolar disorder, a porn addiction, and a considerable cocaine problem, Mr. Marmalade tends to ignore Lucy as much as her one-night-stand-seeking single mother does, frequently leaving Lucy alone to contend with her suicidal five-year-old friend and ... .

A-a-a-and I’ve just lost at least half of you, haven’t I?

VOCES8Music

VOCES8

Galvin Fine Arts Center

Saturday, March 3, 7:30 p.m.

 

For the final performers in its 2011-12 Visiting Artists Series, Quad City Arts has booked an area residency with the renowned a cappella singers of VOCES8, and a glance at the group’s three most recent CDs shows its tracks to include “A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square,” “Kyrie from the Mass for Four Voices,” “Shenandoah,” “Me & My Shadow,” “Wir glauben an ainen Gott,” and “Jailhouse Rock.” Because apparently, it would’ve killed Quad City Arts to find performers with range.

River Music Experience

Sunday, February 19, and Monday, February 20

 

The late, great Duke Ellington was quoted as saying, “By and large, jazz has always been like the kind of a man you wouldn’t want your daughter to associate with.” Let’s be thankful, then, that this sentiment wasn’t adopted by legendary composer Oscar Brown Jr., or the modern jazz scene – as River Music Experience patrons will soon realize – would’ve been deprived of one awfully gifted daughter.

Chucho ValdesMusic

Chucho Valdés & the Afro-Cuban Messengers

Englert Theatre

Friday, February 10, 7:30 p.m.

 

The latest guests in Hancher Auditorium’s Visiting Artists series are the renowned Cuban pianist Chucho Valdés and his Afro-Cuban Messengers ensemble, who bring their exuberant Latin stylings to Iowa City’s Englert Theatre on February 10. I should tell you, though, that if you visit Valdés’ Web site (at ValdesChucho.com) wanting to learn more about the man yet don’t know any languages beyond English, you may be slightly disconcerted by Valdés’ biography, which begins: “Nacido en 1941, el pianista, compositor, profesor de música, arreglista y director de grupa inició su formación musical a temprana edad ... .”

But fear not! I’ve taken the trouble of running every phrase from the site through an online Spanish-to-English translator and have now learned everything you need to know about this artist whom All About Jazz calls “among the most accomplished jazz pianists from Cuba or anywhere else.”
