Louie Anderson

Friday, September 19, 2014 at 8 p.m.

Louie Anderson is one of the most versatile and successful comedians working in Hollywood today, loved by the television audiences who never missed his nightly hit series "Family Feud," his FOX animated series "Life with Louie" and his appearances on late night talk shows. He is adored by standing-room-only crowds in Las Vegas and respected by readers of his books. He is worshiped by the rising comics he mentors and encourages with his honesty and wisdom. Louie recently finished writing his newest installment on family, The F Word: How to Survive Your Family. Now, Louie is traveling the States doing what Louie loves to do: stand up comedy. Louie again delivers to his fans his inimitable brand of humor and warmth.

The Handsome Family

Wednesday, August 20, 2014 at 8 p.m.

The Handsome Family is a 20-year songwriting collaboration between husband and wife, Brett (music) and Rennie Sparks (words). Their track "Far From Any Road" was recently featured in the opening credits of the HBO series "True Detective." The Handsome Family's lyrics and music are very intense, highly descriptive and full of meticulously-researched narrative and exhilarating musical re-imaginings of everything from Appalachian holler, psychedelic rock, Tin Pan Alley and medieval ballad. Of course, you don’t have to be a music historian to love these songs. They are full of romantic longing for nature’s mysterious beauty and the tiny wonders of everyday life; they pair sweet melody with sad harmony, love poetry with dark beats. This is music that makes you shiver and cry, but also makes you happy to be alive.

An Evening with Mary Gauthier & Sam Baker

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 at 8 p.m.

There is something palpably immediate about Mary Gauthier’s songs. They don’t contain detours. Her music strikes an emotional chord and drives the point home with lyrics as straightforward as they are deeply resonant. Mary, quite simply, writes songs about us, all of us. She strips the veneer off of ordinary moments and leaves the splinters exposed. L.A. Weekly raves: “Gauthier’s skill in balancing a profoundly personal tale with classic underpinnings ultimately hints at the evocative idea that all our lives are full of events that touch on the mythic and the timeless.” ​
