Jessica Warren-Acosta & Marguerite Lynn Williams

Figge Art Museum

Saturday, June 1, 6:30 p.m.

 

If you’re looking to enjoy an afternoon of musical entertainment and cultural enrichment, I urge you to take this article’s information to heart. Why? Because I’ve got principals.

No, that’s not a misspelling. What I mean is that I have news about a special concert featuring Jessica Warren-Acosta, the principal flutist for the Quad City Symphony Orchestra, and Marguerite Lynn Williams, the principal harpist for the Lyric Opera of Chicago. If I actually had principles, I wouldn’t make you suffer through lame What’s Happenin’ puns every two weeks.

Joe Louis Walker

The Redstone Room

Friday, May 24, 8 p.m.

 

Blues, soul, and gospel musician Joe Louis Walker, who plays Davenport’s Redstone Room on May 24, was born on December 25, 1949. If you’re hip to the man’s talents through recordings, concerts, or TV appearances, I think you’ll agree that we all got a Christmas present that day.

Bruce Robison and Kelly Willis

The Redstone Room

Saturday, May 4, 8:30 p.m.

 

First, there was Bennifer. Then there was Brangelina. Then there was TomKat. And now, with their Redstone Room concert scheduled for May 4, local audiences will be treated to the artistic gifts and personal charisma of America’s latest celebrity super-couple: Bruce Robinson and Kelly Willis. Or, using the nickname I prefer, BruceWillis!

Wow, that’s a terrible nickname ... . Let me reconsider that one and get back to you ... .

Rock Island Brewing Company

Friday, April 19, 9:30 p.m.

 

On April 19, the Rock Island Brewing Company hosts an evening with The 4onthefloor, the Minneapolis-based blues-rock outfit noted for all of its songs being written in 4/4 time, and for each of the group’s musicians playing a bass drum. Band member James Gould has called this format “limiting in a way that really forces you to be more creative.” Which is exactly how I describe my writing talents ... but usually without that “creative” part.

Wayne “The Train” Hancock

Rock Island Brewing Company

Saturday, April 6, 9:30 p.m.

 

Acclaimed country musician Wayne “The Train” Hancock plays a Rock Island Brewing Company concert on April 6, and you’ll need to be at least 21 to attend. However, all ages are welcome to learn about the artist’s gifts right here! AllMusic.com, for instance, calls Hancock “arguably the finest country traditionalist working the 21st Century country scene.” And Scram Magazine, which describes Hancock’s 2003 CD Swing Time as “a great goddam live album,” raves that Hancock “imbues his material with the kind of I-don’t-give-a-f--k edge that pushes each and every one of these ’old-fashioned songs’ right up into your face.”

Hmm. Given the language, maybe you should be at least 21 to read this article, too.
