You don't have to be a master writer to participate. Besides, nobody'll know who you are unless you give yourself up-- which you're more than welcome to do.

Hollywood Shuffle Screening & Story Swap (Fightin' the Power: Your Means and Tools of Protest)

In this second installment of "Beans", join us as we watch aspiring actor, Bobby Taylor, dodge the minefield known as Hollywood, while he struggles to secure acting roles without making a disgrace of himself and his family.

Branford Marsalis Quartet w/ Kurt Elling

The Branford Marsalis Quartet will be joined by guest-vocalist Kurt Elling in a singular collaboration of musical forces. The tight-knit working band featuring Marsalis on saxophones, Joey Calderazzo on piano, Eric Revis on bass, and Justin Faulkner on drums rarely invites other musicians into the folds of their nearly telepathically cohesive unit, and Elling’s deep jazz vocabulary, technical versatility, and outstanding intonation will enable the band to perform a variety of material in new ways.
