Irish Play Set For The Weekend



The fine folks at Liffey Players Drama Society are set to open their production of Eclipsed, by Irish playwright Patricia Burke Brogan Saturday night. On the surface, it looks like pretty heavy material, but I understand there are some light moments as well.

Here's my conversation with the director - click here!

Enjoy!

Almost the weekend!!

Ch-ch-ch-changes

What is it they say?

Change is inevitable, especially if you pay with a really large bill??

Looks like change is in they wind yet again. Not quite sure what that's going to look like, but I think I'm just going to be proactive and start the process on my own. I've recently revived a site that I had started and abandoned, but I think I'm going to start using that particular one for specific writing I'll be doing. Hopefully that will make site visitors have a more consistent experience when they land, expecting one thing and finding another.

Cryptic?

Sorry - until all the cards are played in this hand, it is a bit of a solitaire game...

PreSale Announcement - Warm Up Your Credit Cards!!

Some big concert news for Calgary - a chance to see a major Canadian artist in an intimate, solo acoustic setting at the Cowboys Dance Hall.

Alt rocker Matthew Good is set to announce tickets for his upcoming performance there November 25th. I hope to have more info, and perhaps something even more exciting soon. 

I last saw Mr. Good live at the Alberta Flood Aid concert, where he performed a short but stellar set (read my brief recap here).

StubHub is set to announce the line up for its Next Stage concert series later this morning (10:00 AM EDT), but I wanted to give you all the heads up early. There are shows scheduled in Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver. StubHub is bringing Matthew Good here to Calgary for a solo acoustic set at Cowboys Dance Hall on Nov. 25. 

Here's the release:

STUBHUB TAKES MUSIC TO THE “NEXT STAGE” BRINGING A THREE-DATE CONCERT SERIES TO CANADA SHOWCASING POPULAR CANADIAN MUSICIANS

Tickets Available Thursday, 10/30, for Shows Featuring USS (Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker) in Toronto and Matthew Good in Calgary and Vancouver at the end of November

CALGARY, AB (October 28, 2014) – StubHub, today announced a continuation of its highly successful music initiative – StubHub’s Next Stage Concert Series – to discover and support emerging artists while giving exclusive access to the true music fan.  

Next Stage will debut in Canada at the end of November.  The three-date concert series will showcase Canadian musicians in intimate venues, featuring USS in Toronto, ON, on November 17th at the Mod Club and a solo acoustic show with Matthew Good in Calgary, AB, on November 25th at Cowboys Dance Hall and in Vancouver, BC, on November 27th at RIO Theatre.  

Tickets are on-sale this Thursday, October 30 for all three shows for only $30 each at www.stubhub.com at 10 a.m. in each respective time zone. 

This is going to be a great night, and it's hard to get into Cowboys even without an act like Good to see. 

Act fast!!

There's A Kind Of Hush...

The kind of "hush!" that librarians used to use when you got too noisy in the hallowed halls of the library.

There's also a kind of hush that your mother may have used. There may have been any number of reasons for that one...

We cannot forget about the hush that makes some puppies very, very quiet...

I don't think it's politically correct anymore to say "hush yo mouth" - but that technically could just fall under the mother-husher category.

So, there are kinds of hush. Probably many more than my own examples...
