The majority of our picks this week share the theme of looking back – at our traditions and our various cultural journeys, whether through music, poetry, art or even tapping the first keg of the season.
If there was any collective post-holiday pause among the area’s arts and culture groups, we didn’t notice it, and there’s certainly no sign of it now. With the usual more-than-you-have-time-for agenda of events on tap for the week, let us help you with some select happenings that are sure to please.
Things are beginning to wind down as we approach the big holiday week ahead, bookended by Christmas and New Year’s. But there are still several key musical events on the horizon, and numerous ongoing cultural and theatrical opportunities to impress your out-of-town guests. Below is a digest for easy consumption…
The unkindest cut comes Sunday, the saddest day of the year – aka, the day daylight saving time ends. Add to the brew in the cauldron the goblins of All Hallows Eve on Thursday, and it adds up to a frightful week indeed. We’ve got just the antidote, though: a bubbling mix of carefully selected arts and culture events.
There’s a chill in the air at last, and darkness claims more of our days. That gives us extra time to enjoy evening events, of course, but, with All Hallows Eve drawing near, it encourages the things that go bump in the night to come out to play, too. Whether your taste drifts more toward the light or the dark, we unequivocally have you covered this week.
