Produced and directed by Shakira Rae
Adams and co-producer Jacque Corcoran, Contemporary Dance Theater’s
Performance & Time Arts this weekend rolls out a typically diverse
mix of music, dance, poetry and multimedia from local performers.
Calcagno Cullen, who runs Camp
Washington’s Wave Pool Gallery with husband Geoffrey, travels north to
Piqua, Ohio to open a show of her own work, Asylum, at the Edison
Art Gallery on Edison Community College’s campus.
If you thought “Nashville” and “Stoner Rock” were
the most incongruous words to show up in the same sentence, replace
the latter with “Dream Pop” and prepare to have your mind blown by the
two-man-with-help Psychedelic Indie Rock orchestra known as Keeps.
Scott H. Biram is an acclaimed
singer/songwriter who performs unaccompanied. But those going to his
show expecting to see a laidback, unplugged troubadour are in for a rude
(and often rowdy) awakening.
It’s not much of a stretch to claim that
the current crop of sea-shanty Celtic/Folk Rock floor-stompers couldn’t

being softened by Great Big Sea.
There's a heat wave coming Friday in
Corbett Auditorium. The University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory
of Music concludes its “Great Decade” festival with a concert
performance of Richard Strauss’ Salome.
Yes, it’s a stage rendition of Dorothy’s 1939 cinematic dream of Oz,
with every bit of music you will recall — plus a number you won’t (it
includes “The Jitterbug,” deleted from the film) — performed lushly by
the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra.
