Friday, February 28- Mama’s Blue Dress w/Special Guests India Ramey and Kate & Corey @ Eddie’s Attic

Mama’s Blue Dress is an all-female country quartet featuring airtight harmonies and vocal chemistry, blazing twin fiddles and a hint of soul. As one fan said, “I haven’t heard a group of women play and sing together this well since the Bush administration.”

Growing up, Kate listened to country, while Corey listened to jazz and the blues. The inspirations of Patsy Cline, The Dixie Chicks, Miles Davis and Bob Dylan are quite apparent in their Bluesy Americana style.

Race @ Southwest Arts Center

Two high-profile lawyers- one black, one white, are called to defend a wealthy white client charged with the rape of an African American woman. When a new legal assistant gets involved in the case, the opinions that boil beneath explode to the surface. They quickly find themselves embroiled in a complex case where blatant prejudice is as disturbing as the evidence at hand. In the newest work by the Pulitzer Prize winning author of American Buffalo and GlenGarry Glen Ross, Mamet leaves nothing unsaid in this no-holds-barred suspense story that the Chicago Tribune dubbed “intellectually salacious.”

Race will be running at the Southwest Arts Center through March 23rd.

Tickets: $35 for adults, $25 for seniors (65+), $20 for students.

Friday, February 28- Doors @ 7 p.m. Online and phone sales close @ 4 p.m. day of show.

Saturday, March 1- Alejandro Escovedo and Peter Buck @ the EARL

Alejandro Escovedo is one with his muse and his music. Over a lifetime spent traversing the bridge between words and melody, he has ranged over an emotional depth that embraces all forms of genre and presentation, a resolute voice that weathers the emotional terrain of our lives, its celebrations and despairs, landmines and blindsides and upheavals and beckoning distractions, in search for ultimate release and the healing truth of honesty.

Peter Buck is a guitarist best known for playing in and co-founding alternative rock band R.E.M. Throughout his career with R.E.M. as well as during his subsequent solo career, Buck has also been at various times an official member of numerous ‘side project’ groups including Hindu Love Gods, The Minus 5, Tuatara, The Baseball Project, Robyn Hitchcock and the Venus 3, and Tired Pony.

Doors @ 7 p.m. THIS SHOW IS SOLD OUT.

Sunday, March 2- Hopsin @ The Loft

In an era defined by cosigns and flashiness, Hopsin and his Funk Volume cohorts took to the rapper’s basement. Raised on the music of Eminem and 50 Cent, Hop studied how to engage fans, both with sharp lyricism and careful branding. While controversy may have made Hopsin a star, skill and courage made him a fan favorite. Whether making art in his basement, crowd-surfing or skiing Down Under, Hopsin has the attitude and charisma that makes Hip Hop unpredictable again. Don’t miss his Atlanta stop of the Knock Madness Tour w/ DJ Hoppa and special guests from Funk Volume.

Doors @ 7 p.m. Tickets: $20 in advance, $25 day of show. Online and phone sales close @ 4 p.m. day of show.
