Cannot wait to see this Concert!! Perhaps one of the best NeoSoul & Smooth Jazz concerts to come to Durham ! I saw Rhonda perform at the LabOurLove Gallery a couple of months ago and OMG !! She not only blew my socks off SHE ROCKED THE HOUSE !!!! Dexter Whitaker and his band was performing with her and these guys are AWESOME !!! No wonder the Richmond Jazz Fest and lots of musicians loves to collaborate with both. And not to mention Kim Pacheco... OMG she did her thang at the Beyou Cafe a couple of weeks ago... And I hear they just added Val Richardson ... whew, !! Val is a NCCU favorite who sounds JUST LIKE Jill Scott !!! I saw her perform at Pappa MoJo's and the crowd was in awe !! All I can say, im not hesitating and getting my tickets asap... you REALLY Dont want to sleep on this concert!!! Its a great deal, with great artists !! Im there front and center... !! Cant wait to get my Bowl of NeoSoul and Smooth Jazz.... Im starving !!.. :-)
These guys really are amazing! I saw them a few weeks ago and they were completely mesmerizing. If you can get a chance to go see them, try them out; you won't be disappointed!
Show actually starts at 7pm
Loved this band, since seeing and hearing them at the Saxapahaw Rivermill farmer's market free music series! Y'all are in for a treat in Durham! I never thought Sarah P. Duke Gardens could be more beautiful, but Wednesday, with Mandolin Orange, they will be. -Becky Myers
UGLYOGRAPHY will be time traveling from 1870's Virginia to perform at ConTemporal, just one of the many reasons you should be there! Friday June 22, 11pm. http://www.uglyography.com
I just wanted to correct one thing: The food is available at 7pm, but BBQ has been replaced by TAMALES by Posh Nosh. The first 80 or so ticket holders eat free tamales, but after that it's pay as you go, $3 per tamale. THANKS, see you there!
I can highly recommend the current play at Man Bites Dog, "In On It." It runs through June 9th. It is emotional, gritty, fast and funny, with superlative wordsmithing swiftly laying down some worthy insights.
The people with whom I went did not enjoy it, as they never grasped which of many characters each of the 2 actors were playing at a given moment. So, if you go, it would help to know this: The play is about 2 male actors who are a couple, who refer to each other as 'this one' and 'that one.' 'This one' has written a play, a work in progress; the other acts out scenes of the play, then complains about the writing at the end of each vignette. The author then tries to show him how to do it, and acts out the next vignette. The play that is being worked on is about a man named Ray, old enough to have a grown son. You will meet Ray's son, his wife, the young son of his wife's lover, and his demented dad. Either actor may play any of these characters, so 'that one' could be Ray and 'this one' could be his wife, in one scene, then 'this one' might be Ray and 'that one' his son in the next. In their actual relationship, you will hear 'that one' deriding 'this one's' opera-loving friends, etc. The scenes flow forward orderly in time, as does the actual relationship of the two principals, though these plot lines are intermingled, so you have to recognize when the action shifts from the couple's lives, in which they are carping about each other, to that of Ray, and his wife, or son or Dad. If you can follow the coat, and the blue Mercedes, through time, you will reap marvelous rewards!
A wildly diverse lineup. Expect everything from heart wrenchingly sweet folk tunes to blood-chilling murder ballads.
The screening's actually on Thursday night not Friday. Thanks to Craig Lindsey for his nice little blurb on our film and it's screening.
