ALL WEEKEND- Harabel @ The Balzer Theater at Herren’s
This riveting one-woman narrative thrills and inspires. Jonida Beqo–known on the slam poetry scene as Gypsee Yo–boasts international awards and critical praise. Featured on NPR’s “Snap Judgment” and at Lincoln Center’s Out of Doors Series, Beqo, the 2008 Southern Queen of Slam, intertwines theatre, dance and poetry to tell her dynamic personal journey from Albanian refugee to American resident, illuminating the universal truths that link us one to the other and to the joy of embracing life at all costs.
ALL WEEKEND – Little Shop of Horrors @ Orbit Theatre Company
A down-and out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.

The Clarks have been superstars in and around their hometown of Pittsburgh, succeeding PA as the national stage awaits them.

Sunday, November 10 – Active Child with JMSN @ The Earl
Rapor is both the name of Active Child’s new EP and the appellation for the residence in which the music was created (“Ra” means sun. “Por” means house.) It’s where singer and multi-instrumentalist Pat Grossi found sanctuary, refuge, and inspiration in the wake of nearly two years of touring his wildly successful Vagrant Records debut, 2011’s “You Are All That I See.” The record’s gestation included days spent writing instrumentals, building the spine for the melodies and lyrics. Each night, Grossi returned to his creations and sang over it—the mood of the track often acting as a mouthpiece for his subconscious. It’s both meticulously sculpted and stream of consciousness, allowing for ideas and songs.
Doors open at 8pm. Tickets are $12 in advance.
Sunday, November 10 – Lisa Marie Presley @ Eddie’s Attic
This event is SOLD OUT. Hope to see you there!
