Bobby Bare, Jr. could've phoned in a career. He could've exploited the fact that he's the son of iconic Country Music Hall of Famer Bobby Bare, was born into Nashville's Music Row elite, and counted artists like Shel Silverstein as close family friends and George Jones and Tammy Wynette as next door neighbors. Instead, Bobby blazed a path of unique songwriting craftsmanship with a voice that blows through you like an unyielding wind on the desolate prairie. Bobby will be performing as a trio for this show. ATWOOD'S IS A MIX OF SEATING AND STANDING ROOM. PURCHASING A TICKET DOES NOT GUARANTEE SEATING. THIS IS A 21+ SHOW.

It's been coming awhile but the banks have finally forced Micky and Doreen McAuliffe to go south. The snow banks. On Saturday July 18, from 3:00pm till whenever, outside (inside if it rains) the Uxbridge VFW, we "End an Era, Begin an Error". Micky has been thumpin away at his bass since the beginning of New Bay Colony in 1973. That's the "Era". The "Error" is that we selfishly think he's making a mistake. Thus the “Error”. You need to come and convince him one way or the other, depending on how you feel. Rick Morrell and Paul Buma are gonna serve up chicken and ribs and there'll will be a keg of Bud Light to toast the parting pair with. Tickets are $20 from friends and members of the band. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll hook you up with someone. We're all gonna miss his solid sound, wise ass remarks and his smile when he screws up. For directions to 13 Cross St., Uxbridge:http://www.socialweb.net/Places/3876.lasso
Pulling from the three dynamic spirits of the Zahili Gonzalez Zamora Project, a new mixture of sonic masterpieces is born. Mixcla is a play on words and a play on sounds hailing from the mountains of Chile and the traditions of Japan and driven by the fires of Cuba. They achieve a truly unique Latin jazz experience. Mixcla is led by composer/pianist/singer Zahili Gonzalez Zamora and features Gerson Esteban Lazo Quiroga on bass and Takafumi Nikaido on percussion. This mixture of cultural spices makes the perfect recipe for any musical experience.

Scripted by a twenty-eight-year-old Robert Altman after a brief, frustrating sojourn in Los Angeles trying to find work as a Hollywood screenwriter, Corn’s-A-Poppin’ is a zero-budget backstage musical that serves as an early example of Altman’s fondness for musicians and performers as characters. The plot concerns the efforts to defend the Pinwhistle Popcorn Hour—a down-home variety show with acts ranging from ex–hog-caller Lillian Gravelguard to Hobie Shepp and His Cow Town Wranglers—from corporate sabotage engineered by a rogue PR man in his bid to gut the Pinwhistle empire. Shot in Kansas City by a band of young talent schooled in the production techniques of the Calvin Company—the Midwest’s most innovative industrial film studio—Corn’s-A-Poppin’ experienced extremely limited play at rural drive-ins and hootenannies before disappearing for decades. Although Altman would not direct his own feature for another year, this film looks forward to Nashville and, even more uncannily, his last film, A Prairie Home Companion, half a century later. Restored by the Northwest Chicago Film Society in conjunction with the Wisconsin Center for Film and Theater Research, with funding from the National Film Preservation Foundation.
The Sound of Bells
Another short made by Altman in Kansas City, The Sound of Bells finds the filmmaker working in a warm, folksy vein to tell a tale of two Christmases, a Santa in need and a Good Samaritan.

South Shore Conservatory’s Evenings Under the Stars concert series invites the public to groove to the familiar tunes of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, with a fresh, new sound, as they present The Follen Angels. This is the second of four EUS Saturday evening open air summer concerts in the Jane Carr Amphitheater at One Conservatory Drive, Hingham..
The Follen Angels are uniquely versatile performers and recording artists with a vast repertoire. Their music gives homage to doo wop and classic rock music from the 50’s, ‘60’s and ‘70’s, with a little American Songbook thrown in for fun.
The heavenly sounds of this innovative seven-piece jazz combo have filled concert halls and radio airwaves, and continue to draw enthusiastic audiences from Scullers Jazz Club and Ryles Jazz Club in the Boston area, to Mechanics Hall in Worcester, the Metropolitan Room and Don’t Tell Mama in New York City, and Columbia Station in Washington DC.
With Hildy Grossman on vocals, Kenneth W. Dantzig on drums, Bob Christopherson on piano, Rick Stone on sax/clarinet, Milt Reder on guitar, and David Gold on bass, this celebrated group just completed their East Coast tour with sold out shows. Hildy has a special touch of telling engaging stories and anecdotes that places the music in context with the era.
Kathy Uek of the Metrowest Daily News had this to say about The Follen Angels: "The angels of jazz have the audience's feet tappin' and fingers snappin'."
Tickets purchased in advance are $35 for pavilion seating, $40 on performance day, and $20 for lawn seating, $25 on performance day for Saturday evening concerts.

with Joseph Silovsky Joseph Silovsky is an object-oriented performance artist known for his odd mechanical creations. Combining his passions for construction, history, and theory, he builds machines, contraptions, puppets, and stages, which he employs in productions that bring to life arcane figures and the minutiae that surround them. His works explore communication, driven by his underlying belief that nothing is more important than to keep trying to communicate. An active performer and creator since 1990, he has performed solo work at St. Anns Warehouse, PS122, Petes Candy Store, Dixon Place, and elsewhere. Silovsky has also been a technical director and performer with companies such as The Builders Association and Radiohole. His awards and residencies include a Lower Manhattan Cultural Council residency (2014); Mount Tremper Arts Center Residency (2013); Axe-Houghton Foundation Grant (2013); Radiohole/Collapsable Giraffe, Collapsable Hole Residency (2012); Project Grant, Henson Foundation (2011); and Seed Grant, Henson Foundation (2010). Through the development of his solo shows, Silovsky created Stanley, an endearing and critically acclaimed robot who has become an integral part of his performances. He has collaborated with designer and performer Victor Morales since 1994.

Damn Tall Buildings is an acoustic guerrilla roots band from Boston. While their instrumentation is that of bluegrass, they are not bound to it. With lyrical storytelling and foot-stomping grooves, their songs about love and ramblin’ help people to forget their everyday troubles and slip away with up-tempo hobo anthems. With members from all around the United States, Damn Tall Buildings is truly a combination of four different people melding their influences into a single sound.
Emma Hern is a singer-songwriter whose music is steeped in the late '60s and early '70s rock and blues she was raised on in Virginia. Her powerhouse rock vocals meld with her lyrical storytelling and thick harmonies to create a sound reminiscent of a contemporary Fleetwood Mac. Her electricity on stage will capture any audience. With her EP, American Gypsy, Hern hits the Boston scene for the first time as a solo artist.
Watch Damn Tall Buildings perform "Ballad of Nigel Williams":
Choose a stamp. Press it in the stamp pad. Stamp it on the paper. What do you see? Experiment with different shapes and colors. Stamp on the paper. Stamp on the floor. Try it over and over again.

The Surlaws started as a duo project formed by Vinicius Cavalieri and Bárbara Schucko in late 2014. The original idea was doing covers of classic rock and folk rock songs to busk around the streets of Boston. Since this idea emerged during a severe winter, busking was not possible at that time.
After some meetings and rehearsals, they started rearranging some of those covers to a heavier style, influenced also by Brazilian music. However, the desire of also writing their own music was growing.
In the beginning of 2015, Lipe Carvalho joined the band as the official drummer. By that time, all of their influences and ideas were brought to the table and they started establishing the band's directions and style. The proposal is now releasing their original songs and rearranged covers of different tunes in different styles. Soon, the band's name was defined and the initial repertoire was recorded.
