Social on the Seacoast: Literary Giant Salman Rushdie takes the Stage this Wednesday In Brief

Social on the Seacoast: Literary Giant Salman Rushdie takes the Stage this Wednesday

When Salman Rushdie takes the stage at The Historic Theater this Wednesday October 10 at 7:30, I’ll be sitting at the edge of my seat waiting to get a glimpse into the mind of this extraordinary man. One of the most celebrated writers of our time, Rushdie catapulted to worldwide fame in 1989 when the Ayatollah Khomeini declared his novel The Satanic Verses” offensive to Islam and issued a “fatwa” that sentenced him to death. For the next 10 years, Rushdie lived in hiding under the pseudonym Joseph Anton. And even now, although the Iranian government renounced the fatwah in 1998, Rushdie continues to receive death threats. Read More Read More

Round Robin with guest curator Guy Capecelatro III Music

Round Robin with guest curator Guy Capecelatro III

Thing is, I’m lucky.  I’m lucky and I’m ever so appreciative. My friends are awesome and generous and wildly talented.  I make a lot of songs and am always enlisting folks to help realize them.  For my last album, North for the Winter 30 different musicians accompanied me and all brought their own unique sensibility. If you come and stay with us and there’s a spare 15 minutes before heading off to swim at a swimming hole, I might ask you to sing a little backing vocal up in the attic where I record. Sorry, I’m presumptuous that way. Sorry, as well, but I might ask you to sing about some unseemly topics. Thing is, you smash it. You make it so nice in a way I didn’t know it could be and take it on as though it were your own. Read More Read More
Indie Gaming Comes to The Hall Wildcard

Indie Gaming Comes to The Hall

By Chris Dahlen If you’re a fan of pop culture, the word “indie” probably has certain positive connotations: independent films are the ones made by passionate directors who would never bow to a focus group; independent musicians are the ones who you can actually meet at their merch tables, when they try to sell you a t-shirt. Artists who work independently give up a certain amount of support for a certain creative ideal, and their audiences embrace them—when the bet pays off. First-time filmmakers Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky have found the same passion and weirdness in the world of videogames, and they tell their story in a movie that’s inspiring and compelling, even as it tackles a difficult and knotty subject: games made by small teams who spend most of their time hunched in front of their computers, quietly fixing or breaking their code.

Behind the Scenes with Thérèse LaGamma: On Tour by Bike, Cellist and Songwriter Ben Sollee Interviews

Behind the Scenes with Thérèse LaGamma: On Tour by Bike, Cellist and Songwriter Ben Sollee

Sollee first caught our attention four years ago when he was hailed by NPR’s Morning Edition as one of the “Top Ten Great Unknown Artists” of the year.  Not long after,  All Things Considered called his debut “an inspired collection of acoustic, folk and jazz flavored songs, filled with hope and the earnest belief that the world is good.” One of the things that sets him apart from other singer songwriters of his generation is that he performs and writes much of his music on the cello.  His music incorporates a unique mix of his Appalachian roots and R&B. His vocal stylings and penchant for intricate arrangements have earned him comparisons to Sufjan Stevens. Read More Read More
