In acknowledging the talents of Canadian folk singer/songwriter Tamara Lindeman – whose musical outfit The Weather Station plays Rock Island’s Rozz-Tox venue on October 14 – Soundproof Magazine raved, “When you try to describe this woman and the music she makes, words fail.”

Challenge accepted, Soundproof!

John Common

The Redstone Room

Friday, September 28, 8 p.m.

 

The independent pop/folk/rock musician John Common will play the Redstone Room on September 28, and according to his Wikipedia listing, the man was born in Jacksonville, North Carolina, and honed his talents at numerous venues throughout the United States.

According to his biography at JohnCommon.com, however, the singer/songwriter was actually born in a small finishing village in Uoraguwaogo, Portugal, and mastered his craft performing bar mitzvahs in Tel Aviv, Hindu weddings in Calcutta, and “a small punk club in the Netherlands.”

Damn that Wikipedia. Can’t trust it for a second.

Royal Southern Brotherhood

The Redstone Room

Sunday, September 23, 7:30 p.m.

 

On September 23, the Redstone Room will host a concert with Royal Southern Brotherhood, a group whose self-titled debut CD, released this past May, was praised for its “exciting mix of down-home Cajun-creole funky blues and good old Southern rock” by CoolAlbumRevue.com. Which begs the question: If you’re being reviewed on a Web site called CoolAlbumRevue.com, are the specifics of your album’s coolness even necessary?

According to the famed English poet John Keats, “A thing of beauty is a joy forever.” According to its Web site, the Figge Art Museum’s new exhibit Posing Beauty in African-American Culture runs from September 8 through November 4.

Such a dirty, rotten liar, that Keats.

Sara King and Kelly Lohrenz in Next to NormalTheatre

Next to Normal

District Theatre

Friday, August 24, through Sunday, September 9

 

Occasionally, I’ll recommend an emotionally wrenching movie or play to friends and family members, and invariably, after they’ve sobbed their way through the entertainment, they’ll hit me with “Why didn’t you tell me I’d need tissues for that thing?!” Well, the District Theatre is opening Next to Normal on August 24, and while I haven’t yet seen this musical on-stage, its Broadway soundtrack is also emotionally wrenching. If you listen to the CD, though, I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t require tissues. It requires a freakin’ squeegee.
