"Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike"
Sibling Rivalry Turns Hilarious in Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

The Tony Award winner for Best Play of 2013, Christopher Durang's hit Broadway satire skewers the classic dramas of Anton Chekhov through an absurdist tale of family dysfunction with Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike -- and you don't have to be a student of Russian literature to appreciate this zany farce. Siblings Vanya and Sonia live a quiet life in the Bucks County farmhouse where they grew up. But when their movie star sister Masha returns home unannounced with Spike, her 20-something boy toy, an unforgettable weekend ensues. Hailed as "deliriously funny" by The New York Times, this tale of sibling rivalry, regret and raucousness comes to Arlington Friends of the Drama.

Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare: "A Midsummer Night's Dream"
Drink, Drink and Be Merry With Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare: A Midsummer Night's Dream

With more than 1,600 cans and over 450 bottle of beer consumed onstage, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has racked up impressive numbers. Ripping a page out of the ingeniously sloppy series Drunk History, the theater troupe behind Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare inserts an entirely inebriated cast member into an entirely serious production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Laugh-out-loud funny and completely interactive, the show has been selling out shows in the UK since 2010 and finally has made its way stateside. With audiences dictating when the drunk actor must drink more, no two performances are ever the same. And lest you think it disrespectful, it's all based on the good 'ol days of the raucous, interactive and vibrant Elizabethan theater scene. The most fun, bawdy Shakespeare play you'll ever see happens at Laugh Boston.

2016 Musical Renewal Conference in Hadley, Massachusetts
[;;Tip: For larger font, press Ctrl + ];; How Does the Tone of the Lyre MOVE in Us? Awakening to the Inner and Outer Relationship of Movement and the "Freed Tone" This summer LANA is offering a conference inspired out of the Movement for Musical Renewal and designed to unite our lyre work with other artistic impulses inspired by the indications of Rudolf Steiner. We are very pleased to be turning to the relationship between the lyre and movement, both Eurythmy and Spacial Dynamics. In addition to lyrists, it is our hope for this conference to reach out to all those who are drawn to or working with a deepened experience of TONE, including other instrumentalists, singers, eurythmists, spacial dynamics practitioners, artistic therapists, Waldorf music teachers, and parents. Featuring ... EURYTHMY with Karen Derreumaux: How does the tone sounding from the lyre ignite our Inner Life Movements? In our eurythmy sessions we shall explore how these movements arise from the lyre out of our engagement with the tone. SPACIAL DYNAMICS with Catherine Decker: As musicians and listeners, we accompany a musical tone or interval inwardly as it evolves and transforms. This vital, yet unseen movement is the experience of deep and vital resonance. With the support of Spacial dynamic streams and exercises, we will explore our relationship to the space around our physical bodies and the spaces we encounter in the lyre music. SETTING: Hartsbrook is a Waldorf school located in the fertile Connecticut River Valley in the region of western Massachusetts known as the Pioneer Valley. It is a prestigious center for higher learning, with five colleges within a ten mile radius. The town of Hadley, situated in Hampshire County, was founded in 1661 and is one of the oldest settlements in Massachusetts with countless relics of the past, including colonial homes and museums in a setting of lush farmland, rolling hills, and old cemeteries. We are very happy to have the opportunity this summer to bring our collective sounding of the modern lyre into such a rich area of our American history!

Create Tack Sharp Macro Images with Roman Kurywczak
Tired of carrying around your tripod for macro photography?  Many flower shows and arboretums don’t allow the use of a tripod as well.  Roman will guide you through the steps of creating tack sharp macro images without using a tripod!  The secret to his success is effectively using flash as well as other light sources.  During the lecture Roman will provide you with the settings and secrets to creating your own tack sharp macro images whether you are out in the field or inside a facility that doesn’t allow the use of tripods. Everything from gear, camera settings, to accessories will be covered in this instructional program. After the lecture portion, there will be an approximately 2-hour shoot where you can put what you learned to use with flower setups and more.  Bring your camera with fully charged battery, memory cards, and a flash (if you have one).  Sigma tech rep Mike Deutsch will also be there with Sigma macro gear for you to try out.

When: Jun 12, 2016 1 PM in Melrose, Massachusetts (Sun, 12 Jun 2016 13 )

Shit-faced Shakespeare: Much Ado About Nothing
Shit-faced Shakespeare is the deeply highbrow fusion of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely shit-faced cast member. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show has been running since 2010 and has already entertained over 45,000 eager theatre goers across the UK. Shit-faced Shakespeare has landed Stateside and will be bringing you the hilarity at Davis Square Theatre with Much Ado About Nothing. For tickets to our shows (A Midsummer Night's Dream) at LAUGH BOSTON click HERE. With a genuinely drunken professional actor selected at random every night, no two shows are ever the same. Shit-Faced Shakespeare seeks to introduce a new generation of theatre-goers to the works of the Bard by reviving the raucous, interactive and vibrant nature of Elizabethan theatre with a very modern twist - reminding them as we go to always enjoy Shakespeare responsibly. FAQs Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event? This event is 21+ and only state-issued IDs will be accepted at the door (no school IDs). You must bring an ID with you. What are my transport/parking options getting to the event? Red Line to Davis Square and a hop, skip and a jump from there. Limited parking (especially on the weekends) so give yourself plenty of time.   Is my registration/ticket transferable? Sure.  Shoot us an email. Can I update my registration information? Yes, right through your Eventbrite account.  Do I have to bring my ticket to the event? YES! That is your way in. Either print the ticket or download the Eventbrite app.   What is the refund policy? There isn't one.   The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay? Totally fine.

JOHN SEBASTIAN + DAVID BROMBERG

JOHN SEBASTIAN + DAVID BROMBERG
Presented by The Cabot in partnership with M.E. Productions

For over four decades the contributions of John Sebastian have become a permanent part of our American musical fabric. 

His group The Lovin' Spoonful played a major role in the mid-'60s rock revolution, but what leader, singer and songwriter Sebastian had in mind was actually a counter-revolution. "We were grateful to the Beatles for reminding us our rock & roll roots," John explains, "but we wanted to cut out the English middlemen, so to speak, and get down to making this new music as an 'American' band." 

This the Lovin' Spoonful did like nobody before or since, putting their first seven singles into the Top 10. This was unprecedented, and utterly unthinkable at the height of Beatlemania. At first they'd taken older material from blues, country, folk and jug band sources - what we now term "roots music" - and made it sound modern. Then, in a series of original songs composed and sung by John Sebastian, they did the reverse, creating thoroughly modern music that sounded like it contained the entire history of American music. Which it did. 

You know the songs by heart: "Do You Believe In Magic?" "You Didn't Have To Be So Nice." "Daydream." "Younger Girl." "Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind?" "Summer In The City." "Rain On The Roof." "Nashville Cats." "Six O'Clock." "Darling Be Home Soon." "Younger Generation." These songs did more than simply answer the British invasion, they carried the musical tradition into the future. 

You can tell a lot about a person from the company he keeps. When that company has included Bob Dylan, The Beastie Boys, George Harrison, Emmylou Harris, Doc Watson, John Hiatt, Jerry Garcia, Reverend Gary Davis, Dr. John, Pete Seeger, Willie Nelson, John Prine, Phoebe Snow, Jerry Jeff Walker and Mississippi John Hurt, you realize you’re dealing with a very special case, which is the case with David Bromberg.

An unexpected and wildly successful solo spot for 600,000 concert goers at the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival in Great Britain led David Bromberg to a solo deal with Columbia Records, for whom he recorded four albums. His eponymous 1971 debut included “The Holdup,” a songwriting collaboration with former Beatle George Harrison, who also played slide guitar on the track. David also met the Grateful Dead and wound up with four of their members playing on his next two albums.

Bromberg’s material, based in the folk and blues idioms, continually expanded with each new album to encompass bluegrass, ragtime, country and ethnic music, and his touring band grew apace. By the mid-’70s, the David Bromberg Big Band included horn players, a violinist, and several multi-instrumentalists, including David himself.

AN EVENING WITH AIR SUPPLY

Air Supply
Presented by The Cabot in partnership with M.E. Productions

Graham Russell & Russell Hitchcock met on May 12, 1975, the first day of rehearsals for "Jesus Christ Superstar" in Sydney, Australia; they became instant friends with their common love for The Beatles and, of course, singing.

After the shows' performances at 10:30, they would play pizza parlors, coffee bars and night clubs with just one guitar and two voices. They quickly gained a reputation for great harmonies and for original songs that Graham was constantly writing. They made a demo on a cassette of two songs, "Love and Other Bruises" and "If You Knew Me" and took it to every record company in Sydney. Everyone turned it down but one — CBS Records — who admired their unique style.

They made a single in one afternoon and it shot to number one on the national charts. Air Supply was born! That same year, they opened for Rod Stewart across Australia and then throughout the United States and Canada playing all of the famous huge venues before Rod would take the stage. They found new fans, but did not break the U.S. market.

Back in Australia they had to start again and made a record called Life Support. On this record were some treasures of songs, including "Lost in Love" which went Top 10 in Australia and somehow found its way to music industry executive Clive Davis in New York.

Clive immediately signed Air Supply to Arista Records and in 1980, "Lost in Love" became the fastest selling single in the world, leaping to the top of all of the charts. Now Air Supply was on their way. The second single was "All Out of Love," and that went up the charts even more quickly.

Seven top-five singles later, Air Supply at that time had equaled The Beatles' run of consecutive top five singles. The albums Lost in Love, The One That You Love, Now & Forever, and The Greatest Hits sold in excess of 20 million copies. "Lost in Love" was named Song of the Year in 1980 and, with the other singles, sold more than 10 million copies.

Leedz Edutainment Presents: Non Phixion / Slaine
This event is all ages
Non Phixion

It was in 1995 that ILL BILL, Goretex and Sabac, three veteran Brooklyn emcees, got together with DJ Eclipse and formed Non Phixion. Just six months later, they released their first single: "Legacy" b/w "No Tomorrow," which went on to sell over 10 000 copies worldwide. ??

From its earliest stages, the group possessed its unique musical formula. Imagine true-school b-boyisms combined with futuristic imagery. Imagine rhymes of ghetto angst, aggressively delivered over hard-hitting beats (most of them provided by Ill Bill's younger brother, the infamous Necro), coupled with thought-provoking messages of militant righteousness. Imagine esoteric slang with a dash of tongue-in-cheek noir humor. This complex blend of opposites is at the core of the Non Phixion sound. Not since Wu Tang's heyday has hip-hop witnessed such a display of unity and strength through disparity. Bill, Gore and 'Bac have three distinct flows, three distinct voices and three distinct types of lyrical content, yet they complement each other in an impressive and powerful way. ??

After a yearlong stint on Geffen's now-defunct hip-hop division, Non Phixion kept releasing material and playing live. They played all New York's major venues, as well as LA, Canada, Italy, Sweden, Denmark and the UK, and opened for Run DMC, Gang Starr, the Beatnuts and the Roots, among others. Non Phixion has gained a dedicated cult following, rivaled only by the likes of Company Flow and Dilated Peoples. ??

It is those fans that have made it possible for Non Phixion to sell over 70 000 records independently. Their impressive series of 12"s has gotten rave reviews in The Source, Vibe and UK's HHC. The group has even been the focus of articles in non-hip-hop publications such as URB and Rolling Stone. ??

Following the release of the "I Shot Reagan" b/w "Refuse to Lose" single in 1998, Non Phixion secured an album deal with Matador Records. They went on to release "Black Helicopters" and "Sleepwalkers" through Matador, but ultimately decided to release their full-length debut "The Future is Now" on their own Uncle Howie Records via Landspeed Distribution. The album was released in 2002 and featured production by hip-hop icons such as DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Large Professor and the Beatnuts as well as Necro, Dave One and T-Ray. It also featured an appearance from MF DOOM as well as a collaboration with members of Fear Factory and The Deftones.

In 2006 the group disbanded with all members diving into their own solo projects and establishing new groups (i.e. La Coka Nostra, Heavy Metal Kings). Now in 2015, almost 10 years later, the group has reunited to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Non Phixion's existence. Plans are in motion for Non Phixion to tour all over the world and give fans a chance to see the original line up of ILL BILL, Goretex, Sabac and DJ Eclipse.
