“REDEMPTION” The No Kill Revolution in America
Fundraiser for the No Kill Advocacy Center

Synopsis:
Shelter killing is the leading cause of death for healthy dogs and cats in the United States. It doesn’t have to be. When the early founders of the animal protection movement died and their organizations took over the job of killing those they had been formed to protect, a fiery zeal was replaced with a smoldering ember that gave little light or warmth and the humane movement went to sleep. After over 100 years of this antiquated and deadly paradigm, the grassroots of the animal protection movement is finally waking up. Starting with the founding of the first SPCA in North America by Henry Bergh and continuing to this very day, Redemption is the story of heroes and villains, betrayal and redemption. But most of all, it is the story of believing in the community and trusting in the power of compassion.

“TOM RUSH: NO REGRETS” features interviews with Tom Rush, James Taylor, Elektra Records’ Jac Holzman, and DJ Dick Summer, plus musical cameos by David Bromberg, Buskin & Batteau, Jonathan Edwards, and Dom Flemons of the Carolina Chocolate Drops.

After winning Best NH Documentary at the New Hampshire Film Festival, the 83-minute documentary about the influential folk legend, who also helped propel Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, and Jackson Browne into the spotlight, “TOM RUSH: NO REGRETS” will screen at the Regent Theatre, 7 Medford Street, Arlington, MA 02474 on June 28,  2014 beginning at 8:00 pm.

Folksinger, songwriter, and guitarist Tom Rush recalls his illustrious and unconventional career in the new documentary, Tom Rush: No Regrets. The film chronicles Rush’s life, mostly from his own humorous, self-deprecating perspective. Tom Rush: No Regrets includes exclusive footage of the folk icon retracing his developmental New England footsteps, as well as recent concert appearances at Club Passim (formerly Club 47) and a 50th anniversary celebratory concert at Boston’s prestigious Symphony Hall in December 2012. The documentary is also interspersed with archival footage, photographs, and clippings.

In the film, James Taylor reflects on Rush’s influence. “If it weren’t for you, I would not be here,” the singer-songwriter shares. “I definitely walked in the path you shine a light on, and I pattern myself - in no small way - on you ... and you’re the greatest!”

“Tom Rush is one of the pioneers of acoustic music,” says Dom Flemons of the Carolina Chocolate Drops. “As a songwriter, folk song stylist and interpreter of original songs, Rush has been a vast influence on many performers who have followed him.  When one looks at the songs he has brought attention to in his career, it is no wonder that his name is place among the greats!”

Tom Rush: No Regrets is more farming, Ivy League, and acoustic guitars than sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll. A master storyteller, Rush recalls his life, beginning in New Hampshire: A childhood with blue blood adoptive parents, along with the search for his biological ones, through his time at Harvard University spent as a performer and disk jockey, and his first album - a live recording from 1962 - sold out of the trunk of a car.

Rush went on to record original compositions on his albums while also championing unknown songwriters, like Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, and Jackson Browne, whose material were all included on Rush’s 1968 concept album for Elektra Records, “The Circle Game.” The album closes with Rush’s most covered composition, “No Regrets.”

After a stint on the bigger Columbia label, Rush temporarily traded in his guitar for a tractor, and took an unsuccessful stab at farming. Before long, Rush was back in the music business, this time at a much less hectic schedule. He also began developing a roster of young talent for his booking agency, and continues to showcase newer artists, most recently at his 50th anniversary concert at Symphony Hall last December.

Tom Rush: No Regrets continues the musician’s association with filmmakers Todd Kwait and Rob Stegman, who produced and directed the acclaimed documentary, For The Love Of The Music - The Club 47 Revival, featuring folk legends Joan Baez, Taj Mahal, Judy Collins, Maria Muldaur, Geoff Muldaur, Jim Kweskin, Jackie Washington, Jim Rooney, Peter Rowan, and narrator Peter Coyote, and previously unheard performances by Bob Dylan. Kwait and Stegman also produced a DVD and CD of Tom Rush Celebrates 50 Years of Music, now available on Appleseed Recordings and at www.tomrush.com.  Other films by Mr. Kwait include Chasin’ Gus’ Ghost with John Sebastian, and Vagabondo! Mr. Kwait’s record company, Kingswood, features a new album from Club 47 star Jack Landron, rising stars Alana Amram and the Rough Gems and Hayley Reardon, and an acclaimed collection of Jug Band music, Jug Band Extravaganza.

Rounder Records recording artist, Tony Trischka (United States Artists Friends Fellow-2012), is considered to be the consummate banjo artist and perhaps the most influential banjo player in the roots music world. For more than 45 years, his stylings have inspired a whole generation of bluegrass and acoustic musicians with the many voices he has brought to the instrument.

Accompanying Tony will be Chris Eldridge (Critter of the Punch Brothers) and Grant Gordy (who plays with David Grisman)

“It’s kind of hard to pin down, because there’s so much on it,” Tony Trischka says of his new Rounder album Great Big World. “It’s all over the place, which is kind of where I live.”

In a consistently adventurous musical career that spans nearly half a century, Tony Trischka has established himself as both a wildly inventive recording artist and one of America’s foremost visionaries of the five-string banjo. Widely regarded as the most innovative banjoist of his generation, Trischka’s dexterity and restless creative spirit have inspired generations of fans, and his influence in igniting the world of progressive acoustic music permanently altered the face of American roots music.

Trischka’s instrumental expertise and boundless imagination are as sharp as ever on Great Big World. One of the most ambitious and accomplished of the artist’s career, the album is a deeply compelling showcase for his expansive instrumental talents, far-ranging musical interests and distinctive songwriting skills, as well as his sterling taste in collaborators. The 13-track set finds Trischka embracing all manner of possibilities, while keeping one foot firmly planted in the traditional bluegrass roots that first inspired him to make music.

About
Opening Pandora’s Box: Stories of Truth and Hope. Hope is a powerful force: it has the ability to sustain us during even the most trying times. Truth-telling gives us the ability to break down the barriers created by shame and suffering. Together, these stories of truth and hope have the power to heal.

Mission
To entertain and educate people that the things they think are wrong with them are actually the seeds of their greatest gifts.

Description
This performance marks the beginning of a movement from shame and suffering to owning our value and our worth. It is time for us to share all of our gifts with the world. The Dalai Lama said that western women will save the world. We can’t do that if we’re stuck in stories of unworthiness. It’s time to open our own Pandora’s box and release all of the things we’ve believed are wrong with us and not good enough, so that we can find the hope at the bottom of your own story.

Filmmaker, Alice Rothchild will be present for an audience Q&A

2013 Audience Award at the Boston Palestine Film Festival


Synopsis
“Voices Across the Divide” is a powerful documentary and oral history project exploring the Israeli/Palestinian conflict through rarely heard personal stories. Narrated by Alice Rothchild, an American Jew raised on the tragedies of the Holocaust and the dream of a Jewish homeland in Israel, the film follows her personal journey as she began to understand the Palestinian narrative, while exploring the Palestinian experience of loss, occupation, statelessness, and immigration to the US.

The Project
What if you could explore a forgotten people’s history and better understand one of the most complex conflicts of our time? What if you could act on your understanding and be a part of an international grassroots effort for peace and social change?

Welcome to Voices Across the Divide!

Our Hope
The Israeli/Palestinian conflict is one of the most prominent, hot button debates in the US today. There is often little space for compassionate listening or deepening awareness. Access to information about the conflict is shaped by powerful forces and organizations. We believe a better future is possible based on mutual respect and knowledge.

We hope Voices Across the Divide will contribute to an open dialogue grounded in mutual respect, understanding, and political activism that leads to justice for all people in the region.

Learn about these important stories, and be inspired to make a difference. Raise a voice to build a just peace in Israel and Palestine. Start by confronting the common experiences of trauma, yearning, immigration, and the realities of injustice and dispossession. Join us in humanizing this tortured and misunderstood history.

How it started
The idea for the film was born after Alice traveled to Israel, the West Bank and Gaza to work with and interview Israelis and Palestinians starting in 2003 and wrote a book about these experiences, Broken Promises, Broken Dreams: Stories of Jewish and Palestinian Trauma and Resilience. This led to an event organized by Jewish Voice for Peace in Detroit, where Palestinians shared their stories at a public event. As she actively searched for the mostly invisible stories of Palestinians she felt the enormous human commonalities that connect Arabs and Jews. Compelled to speak out and to organize for a positive future for all of us, she started working on Voices Across the Divide.

Synopsis: Incinerators burning garbage in India. Hundreds of hydroelectric dams in Panama. Biogas extracted from palm oil in Honduras. Eucalyptus forests harvested for charcoal in Brazil. What do these projects have in common? They are all receiving carbon credits for offsetting pollution created somewhere else. But what impact are these offsets having? Are they actually reducing emissions? And how are they affecting the people who live in these countries? THE CARBON RUSH takes us around the world to meet the men and women on the front lines of carbon trading. So far their voices have gone unheard in the cacophony surrounding this multi-billion carbon industry, nicknamed “green gold” by its beneficiaries. Indigenous rain forest dwellers are losing their way of life. Waste pickers at landfills can no longer support themselves. Dozens of Campesinos have been assassinated. THE CARBON RUSH travels across four continents and shows the connection between these tragedies and the United Nations’ Clean Development Mechanism. This groundbreaking documentary feature reveals the true cost of carbon trading and shows who stands to gain and who stands to lose.

THE EVOLUTION OF A TRADITION

Most Americans have never stepped foot on a farm or ranch or even talked to the people who grow and raise the food we eat. Our documentary ‘Farmland’ intimately connects you with the lives of farmers and ranchers in their ‘20s, all of whom are now responsible for running their farming business.
Documentary filmmaker, James Moll (who has earned an Oscar, Two Emmys, and a Grammy) spent several months meeting farmers and ranchers before he settled on the six who are featured in the film, Farmland. Moll said the making of this film immersed him in a community with some of the most hardworking, passionate people he’s ever met. Watch the official trailer below to catch a glimpse of the stories shared.

SUPER DUPER ALICE COOPER is the story of Vincent Furnier, preacher’s son, who struck fear into the hearts of parents everywhere as Alice Cooper, the ultimate rock star of the bizarre. From the advent of Alice as frontman for a group of Phoenix freaks in the sixties to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the seventies to the winking comeback as glam metal godfather in the eighties, one will watch in wonder as Alice and Vincent battle for each other’s souls. The story is told in the form of a “doc opera,” a dizzying blend of documentary and rock opera that combines audio interviews with a bounty of Alice Cooper archive footage. Concerts, TV appearances, movie cameos, newspaper headlines, magazine spreads and many other visual elements have been cut out, layered and collaged like a cinematic View-Master.

Alongside the hits that defined an era, overlooked gems of Alice Cooper’s oeuvre have been dug up and melded into montages that soundtrack his life. Footage from old scary movies serves as allegories for Alice’s madness.

Alice Cooper needs no introduction.  Still touring the world, with over 100 concerts scheduled in 2014, and hosting his internationally syndicated “Nights With Alice Cooper” radio show five nights a week for over a decade, Alice shows no sign of slowing down.

Gathr Previews Presents… “More Than Honey”

A gorgeous look inside honeybee colonies

Monday, June 10 at 7:30pm

Bookmark and Share

Taking a journey through the honeybee colonies in California, Switzerland, China, and Australia, “More Than Honey” explores bee decimation. The same scenario is repeated around the world: 50%-90% of bees are disappearing from colony to colony. The bee epidemic has started a phenomenon known in the scientist community as, “Colony Collapse Disorder.” The dying species has had a negative global effect, and without the bee population, our humanity will slowly be affected.

Director and writer, Markus Imhoof travels from the different regions to interview beekeepers’ work to preserve their colonies. With their knowledge and practice in the bee world, the beekeepers show the daily paradox working in both natures’ rhythm and against it.

“This. Film. Is. Fascinating.” – Cleveland International Film Fest*

“Surprisingly up-close images of bees at rest and in flight give buzz to an inescapably downbeat topic”

Featuring 2011 Grammy nominated vocalist Judy Pancoast

Pancoast was just eleven years old when her older sister told her about a song she’d heard on the radio, and said that the girl singing it sounded “just like you.”  That was the summer of 1970, and when Judy finally heard “(They Long to Be) Close to You” it was the beginning of a childhood adulation that would last well into her adult years.  She spent her adolescent and teen years listening nearly non-stop to the music of the brother and sister duo who called themselves “Carpenters,” and she became one of the charter members of their fan club at age 12. 

Judy’s natural rich alto voice blended well with Karen’s, and she spent countless hours in front of a mirror with a hair brush “microphone” mimicking her idol’s voice.  Later, while a music major at the University of Maine, she was advised to “stop trying to sound like Karen Carpenter,” but although she managed finally to all but erase the traces of Karen’s styling, the influence had already had its impact.  Randy Schmidt, author of “Little Girl Blue: the Life of Karen Carpenter” says this about Judy: “…her velvety voice, phrasing and conversational delivery of a song are all products of years spent listening to the timeless recordings of the Carpenters. Her passion and joy for the material make Judy the perfect vocalist to pay tribute.”

“... Pancoast kept her audience thoroughly entertained for over two hours, reaching people on an emotional level. Pancoast didn’t settle for imitation. She channeled the essence of what The Carpenters always tried to do: show respect and warmth for the people they were singing to. And Pancoast has a voice to handle the technical challenges and emotive qualities of that music…. ”—Bill Copeland Music News

This Show is Sold Out! Thank you!

Between Identity, Willpower, and Passion:
This is Tango Now’s Identidad Renews the Tango Experience on the Stage

It is midnight outside: a magical and mystical time for hundreds of cultures past and present.  Respect, appreciation and fear for this moment infuses the bodies and minds of those brave enough to venture on it.  In Tango the midnight, its darkness, and the pulse of the city at that very moment conjures the deepest introspection, and opens up a window for change. But more than a moment in time, the midnight is a portal, it represents the end and the beginning, when and where things die, are born, and reborn, and this cycle goes on repeating itself for all eternity.

It is midnight inside: in the depths of people’s hearts and minds.  The introspective mood allows our main character, the Marionette, to realize her condition.  Devoid of freewill she suddenly grasps the distressing reality that, like most everyone around her, she has been manipulated her entire life.  On her side, the Duende, the incarnation and materialization of the midnight, the spirit of passion and change.  Against her, the Puppeteer, the manipulator, the one who won’t let her go.  What follows is a struggle for freedom, for a new identity, for willpower, and for the right to live life with the fullest of passions.

This is Tango Now’s Identidad, is the creation of three highly accomplished artists: dancers and choreographers Fernanda Ghi & Guillermo Merlo, and musician and anthropologist Alfredo Minetti.  They felt a gap in the world of tango shows as well as a need from contemporary audiences that was unfulfilled.  They decided then to go beyond the traditional tango show, creating a complete sensorial experience, using the powerful rationality and emotiveness, and the raw intensity and kinetic energy that only tango has, and created a story that resonates with any person living in the present.  In order to stage it, they decided for a tango quartet (bandoneón, violin, piano and double bass) and selected some of the greatest tangos composed and arranged by Osvaldo Pugliese and Astor Piazzolla.  They selected two more couples of dancers to share the stage with Fernanda & Guillermo, who choreographed the show with some of the best dance one will ever see. And finally, they teamed up with one of the greatest light designers in South America, Aníbal Rea, who took the challenge to add yet another incredible layer to this experience. The result is a tango experience unlike any other!

Every detail of this show has been meticulously and creatively crafted in order to create a magical and mystical experience for the senses.  Much more than performance takes place in the stage.  The trio designed the show to produce a synergy between the performers and spectators.  The nostalgia, sensuality, vulnerability, irony, and passion of tango pour out from the stage infusing every spectator.  The main goal of the performers is to touch the souls of the audiences. Through the deep melancholic passion and cathartic introspection of the tango, audiences will come to see their surroundings with the renewed spirit that the mythical midnight allows — feeling the world as a tango.

Renowned Rock & Roll photographer Kevin Mazur, has pulled together an impressive team for his first feature-length documentary about the changing face of celebrity and the many ways that the media has conveyed, defined, and even demeaned what it means to be famous today.Taking a historical ride through the early days of Hollywood and the rise of the paparazzi, $ellebrity explores how fame has changed from the highly-structured studio system to the current free-for-all press and paparazzi frenzy.

Candid interviews with Jennifer Aniston, Elton John, Jennifer Lopez, Salma Hayek, Sara Jessica Parker, and Kid Rock among others, help to give a glimpse into the lives of those on the front lines of our increasingly obsessive world of pop culture celebrity.

Fame is now a national pastime, it is what millions of us follow, believe in and seemingly what we care about most - as well as a billion dollar-a-year industry.  But what does our intense fascination with celebrity say about us? And how much is too high a price to pay for our own curiosity run rampant? $ellebrity captures the free-for-all of pop culture today and the ever-changing face of fame.

“An engrossing study in the communication possible…between man and beast.”
- Variety

“That rare gem that reaches out to anyone with a soul and leaves an indelible impression”
- Collider.com

“A crowd-pleaser with a big heart”
- The Hollywood Reporter

Each year thousands of wild horses are rounded up and removed from public lands by the U.S. Government. All will need permanent homes. None has ever been touched by a human hand.

Wild Horse, Wild Ride tells the story of the Extreme Mustang Makeover Challenge, an annual contest that dares 100 people to each tame a totally wild mustang in order to get it adopted into a better life beyond federal corrals.

Stunning and poignant, Alex Dawson and Greg Gricus’ debut feature documentary chronicles a handful of unforgettable characters from their first uneasy meeting with their horses and over three months as they attempt to transform from scared strangers to the closest of companions.

Eventually all will converge in Fort Worth, Texas, to compete against each other and offer the horses up for adoption at an auction in which the trainers, if they wish to keep their horses, must bid against the public.
Hailed by The Hollywood Reporter as a “crowd-pleaser with a big heart,” the film traverses across the United States to tell stories of the profound the bonds that can develop between people and animals. From the rolling hills of New Hampshire to the Navajo Nation to the heart of Cowboy Country, the film captures a journey that is at times harrowing, humorous, heartwarming and heartbreaking as these wild spirits - both human and horse - embark on the ride of their lives.

Powderwhore Productions, a backcountry ski film company based in Utah, is proud to announce its eighth annual ski movie, called “Choose Your Adventure.” The film will premiere at Brewvies in Salt Lake City on September 26th 2012, followed by a 50 city TOUR through ski towns throughout North America.

This movie is such a mixed bag of characters, exotic locations and action that we wanted to get that point across with the title. You really can’t guess what’s coming next in this film, like the Choose Your Own Adventure book series we enjoyed growing up. We’re exploring an abandoned mining town in the Arctic, dropping cliffs with Hugo Harrison in British Columbia, plunging into the Antarctic Sea in speedos, blasting through deep powder, catching up with crusty locals in the Wasatch and more.

Our interest lies in finding people with real stories and ski objectives. We wanted to tag along and capture their actions and motivation for heading into the mountains, creating more of an authentic experience. We traveled light and moved fast to avoid interfering with the actual adventures as they unfolded.

Despite the underwhelming winter of 2011-12, in which snowfall reached near record lows and unstable avalanche conditions,the Powderwhores were able to make the most of the conditions at home and abroad, with trips to Cerro Castillo, Chile; La Grave, France; the Antarctic Peninsula; Svalbard, Norway; Mount Foraker, Alaska; British Columbia, Canada, and the Wasatch Mountains in Utah.

The film features an array of characters from salty backcountry veterans to some of the top skiers and snowboarders, including Chris Davenport, Jake Sakson, Andrew McLean, Seth Wescott, Dylan Freed, Noah Howell, Matt Reardon, Drew Stoecklein, Forrest Coots, Ian Provo, Neil Provo, Chuck Mumford, Darrell Finlayson, Bob Athey, PY Leblanc, Jason Thompson,Todd Stuart and Hugo Harrison.

In the end, this is a feature-length ski film that celebrates exotic locations, wild adventures, and the dedicated personalities writing their own stories in snow.

The full chorus will bring you the domestic romp of “Ob La Di Ob La Da,” and the whimsical fun of “Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”  The Folk Chorale’s kids will lead you through the delightful imaginings of “Octopus’s Garden,” the women put a new spin on the R&B tribute “Lady Madonna,” and our amazing teens will turn up the heat with a medley of rocking tunes . . . and much more!

A Family Folk Chorale concert is great fun for all ages.  As always, the audience is an integral part of the show.  You’ll be inspired by seeing families making music together, and you won’t want to miss singing “Let It Be” and “All You Need is Love” with 500 other voices! 

The Family Folk Chorale has been performing since 1999.  Our 60 voices – ages 5-75 – are joined by a stellar band and guest instrumentalists.  Artistic Director Christopher Eastburn’s sensitive arrangements will mirror the Beatles’ original recordings and also bring new depth to some of their greatest songs.

This will be a magical mystery tour that will remind you and your family of how much fun it is to sing together!
Join us for a memorable afternoon!

The Family Folk Chorale is the Boston Area’s premier Intergenerational Chorus!  For more information, visit http://www.familyfolkchorale.org/

ABOUT JON COHAN AND HIS GOLDEN RULERS
Jon Cohan and His Golden Rulers play classic American blues, rhythm and blues, soul, funk, and rock and roll from the 1950s - 1970s. Drummer and bandleader Jon Cohan formed the band in 2009 with some of his favorite local musicians to perform at Right Turn Live, a sober cafe in Arlington, MA. Cohan’s goal was simple: to introduce audiences to the great groove-based music he grew up listening to. Since its inception the band has grown into a nine-piece outfit. Boston rock stalwarts like Phil Kaplan of Men and Volts and Sal Baglio of The Stompers join dynamic singer Erica Rothenberg, guitarist Mike Pyle, bassist Jeff Keithline, percussionist Stephen Whitney, saxophonist Artie Camacho, and keyboardist Bob Camacho. The combined talents of the musicians brings a fresh and swinging interpretation to some of the finest examples of American music, including some tasty, rockin’ Holiday tunes for this special Regent concert. 

ABOUT RYAN CASEY
At 6’8″, Ryan P. Casey looks more suited for the basketball court than the stage. But his keen ear for the rhythms of words and the rhythms of dance has launched his career as a talented writer who is “fast becoming recognized as one of the top tap dance soloists in the country.” Ryan has worked with such great instructors and choreographers as Brenda Bufalino, Heather Cornell, Michelle Dorrance, Barbara Duffy, Sean Fielder, Derick K. Grant, Adrienne Hawkins, Josh Hilberman, Jeannie Hill, Jimmy Locust, Drika Overton, Jason Samuels Smith, Sarah Petronio, Sue Ronson and Dianne Walker.

ABOUT MATIAS LETELIER
Matias is a professional magician with more than 15 years of experience in magic shows and family entertainment. He has performed in the USA, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Mexico, Japan, China, Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia. He performs a variety of magic and illusion shows hundreds of times per year. He was the top children’s magician in Chile before moving to the USA.

ABOUT JERRY BISANTZ
Local actor Jerry Bisantz will perform selected monologues from his IRNE nominated (Best Actor) portrayal of beat writer Jack Kerouac, written by playwright Patrick Fenton, from the original play Kerouac’s Last Call, which will appear in early 2013 at the new Regent Underground Theater (The “RUT”)

ABOUT DAN FOLEY
Dan Foley, a virtuoso juggler and skilled comedian, will keep both adults and children laughing and amazed! Dan is best known as the homely half of the fabulous juggling duo, the Airborne Comedians—sometimes appearing at the Boston Museum of Science and other venues as the Amazing Nano Brothers.

In Celebration of the 70th Anniversary of Jimi Hendrix’s Birth and for the very first time, experience Hendrix’s unforgettable August 1969 Woodstock concert on the big screen and in surround sound. The performance stands as one of the finest in rock music history and includes “Voodoo Child (Slight Return),” “Fire,” “Purple Haze” and “Foxey Lady” as well as Hendrix’s dramatic interpretation of the “Star Spangled Banner”

The concert is preceded by a fascinating road to Woodstock documentary, directed by Grammy Award winner Bob Smeaton (Beatles Anthology, Band Of Gypsys, Festival Express), which reveals the struggle to stage the legendary festival and secure Hendrix as its headline artist. It includes footage and interviews with his band members such as Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell, and Woodstock’s promoter Michael Lang.

This presentation features the original 16mm footage digitally restored together with a 5.1 audio surround mix by legendary engineer Eddie Kramer. Kramer originally recorded the Woodstock festival and also served Jimi Hendrix as his recording engineer throughout his entire career.

This show has been CANCELLED due to change in tour plans - please contact the box office at 617-646-4849 for refunds.

There is something very special about dance. A special magic to the human body moving well that we can all relate to. Add captivating music, glamour and pageantry and no wonder TV dance shows became such an overnight success. 

  The latest show from the Bellydance Superstars is the culmination of 10 years of touring the world – over 800 shows in 25 countries – pushing the boundaries of the art of bellydance to capture the artistry, magic and passion of this unique dance in all its variety.  So when looking for a name for the 2012-2013 show only one name seemed to sum up what it would be :  “THE MAGIC OF DANCE”

  The Bellydance Superstars did not have the luxury of following in another’s footsteps; developing and improving on the work of others along a known course.  They were the first and only full time bellydance show touring the mainstream dance world.  As such they had a lot to prove, mindsets to change and educate as they defined and expanded on the understanding of what this dance art was.  They set a string of firsts; from national TV broadcasts of their shows in North America, Japan, China and elsewhere to performing top level shows in some of the most prestigious venues in the world; venues heretofore reserved for the likes of the ballet or super successful shows like Riverdance.  Their DVDs and CDs are the best known and distributed the world over – even officially released in China.

    Above all the Bellydance Superstars are known for a great show – fast paced, lots of variety in music and dance styles, not afraid to fuse other dance arts from ballet to African into their repertoire; seeing bellydance as a big picture with a big future.  As in past shows, the vibrant and exciting music is matched only by the many beautiful costume changes for each number.  All in all when you have great dancers, great music, beautiful costumes, and a dedicated team on a mission to deliver, surprise and excite you will definitely achieve a Magic – that is what THE MAGIC OF DANCE is set to do.

On December 10, 2007, Led Zeppelin took the stage at London’s O2 Arena to headline a tribute concert for dear friend and Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. What followed was a two-­hour-­plus tour de force of the band’s signature blues­‐infused rock ’n’ roll that instantly became part of the legend of Led Zeppelin. Founding members John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant were joined by Jason Bonham, the son of their late drummer John Bonham, to perform 16 songs from their celebrated catalogue including landmark tracks “Whole Lotta Love,” “Rock And Roll,” “Kashmir,” and “Stairway To Heaven.”

Although 20 million people applied for tickets, the band’s first headline show in 27 years was seen only by the 18,000 ticket holders who were fortunate enough to have secured seats through the worldwide lottery. Now, for the first time, fans in over 40 territories worldwide will be able to get a front row seat to experience this historic event in glorious high definition and incredible surround sound.

What Jimi Hendrix accomplished in the span of four short years before his death in 1970 at age 27 is nothing short of phenomenal. Now, more than four decades later, Hendrix is widely considered the greatest electric guitarist of all time. On Tuesday, November 13, Arlington Community Education and the Regent Theatre will co-host Hendrix at 70, a panel discussion of the life, music and legacy of this rock icon. The program will take place in the Arlington High School Media Center, 869 Massachusetts Avenue.

Panelists include Steve Morse, journalist and long-time Boston Globe music editor; Joel J. Brattin, Hendrix scholar and Professor of Humanities at Worcester Polytechnic Institute; and Carter Alan, author and host of “Sunday Morning Blues” on WZLX/Boston. Leland Stein, Regent Theatre co-owner and lifelong Hendrix enthusiast, will moderate the panel discussion and the Q&A to follow.

The program will explore Hendrix’s legacy and his diverse – and, at times, surprising – influences, and the tremendous impact he has had on a wide swath of music and musicians that followed him. Panelists will highlight songs from his non-hit repertoire with a focus on his gentler side and more lyrical tunes – the hidden Hendrix beyond ”Purple Haze” and “Hey Joe” and the contemplative, humble man behind the flamboyant stage persona.

In the days following this event, the Regent Theatre will host several additional programs in celebration of Hendrix’s 70th birthday.

  Thursday, November 15. Hendrix documentary film double-feature: “Jimi Hendrix: Voodoo Child” (2010), 7:15pm, and “Jimi Plays Berkeley” (2012), 9pm. Buy Tickets

The Doors Live At The Bowl ’68 is widely held as the band’s best performance ever captured on film.

The film opens with a special feature of interviews with the band talking about what it meant to perform at the Hollywood Bowl and the enduring significance of this concert. More than 40 years after their debut album, The Doors’ music and legacy are more influential than ever before. Though they’ve had scores of imitators, there’s never been another band quite like them and this film will appeal to their many fans – both their original followers and a younger generation discovering The Doors now.

“His humble sense of humility is what makes Trapper’s songs so strong… He makes you feel like you are the person he’s singing about.  The Few & the Far Between is another strong addition to the Chris Trapper/Push Stars catalog.”  Popdose


CHRIS TRAPPER began his career as the front man for late-90’s alternative rock band THE PUSH STARS (Capitol Records).  With four CD releases and several high profile national tours—including a run with Matchbox Twenty—The Push Stars served to establish Chris as an authentic talent. 

As a modern day singer /songwriter, Chris is most known for his song This Time, the #1 selling song on the Grammy nominated soundtrack for AUGUST RUSH (Robin Williams, Jonathan Rhys Meyers /Warner Bros Pictures). 

The newest CD (released October 2011), The Few & The Far Between, is a collection of 14 songs written and performed by Chris Trapper.  This new work was Produced, Recorded and Mixed by Dan McLoughlin (The Push Stars, Mike Peters, Juliana Hatfield) at the Vault Recording Studio, Hoboken, NJ.

Focus tracks include the CD opener, Here All Along, featuring guest vocals by Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty, The More I Think featuring vocals and slide guitar by Colin Hay of Men at Work and Ghost In Your Arms featuring backing vocals from Boston’s own Kristen Cifelli. 

The New York Times calls his work “classic pop perfection.”

A prolific songwriter, Chris can boast high profile film placements including There’s Something About Mary (Ben Stiller, Cameron Diaz), The Devil Wears Prada (Meryl Streep), Say It Isn’t So (Heather Graham) and Gun Shy (Sandra Bullock, Liam Neeson) as well as significant television placements including All My Children, Women’s Murder Club, Malcolm In The Middle, a coveted placement in George Clooney’s final episode of ER, the theme song for WB Networks dramedy Pepper Dennis and a cameo on-screen appearance with the show’s star, Rebecca Romjin.

Chris Trapper’s music can best be described as lyrically driven roots-pop with a knack for telling everyday stories filled with extra-ordinary characters. 

A respected songwriter of the highest caliber, Chris has written 7 songs with/for Canadian band GREAT BIG SEA, including their #1 single “Sea Of No Cares” from the certified-platinum Sea Of No Cares CD.  Great Big Sea covered Trapper’s song “Everything Shines” and their version served as the debut single off their certified-gold Road Rage CD album. Chris’ songwriting collaborations with Great Big Sea earned him two prestigious SOCAN awards. Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty and Antigone Rising have performed other notable versions of Trapper’s songs.

Chris Trapper’s ability to craft songs that are both elegant and accessible is evident on each solo CD in his deep Discography. There is a smart, honest quality to the lyrics that never panders. 

Trapper’s live show is a favorite among fans of alt–acoustic music. His on–stage persona is warm and inclusive, his organic understanding of classic pop melody infectious. Audience members seem to particularly appreciate the lighthearted moments with the ukulele. They depart the venue at the end of the evening with the sense of having been truly entertained.

“It’s an incredibly rare musician, particularly in the world of popular music, who is able to forge a career based on quiet dignity and steadfast integrity.” 

The Buffalo News

OPENER:
A Fragile Tomorrow has become one of the most respected band of brothers on the road, largely thanks to their venerable work ethic, stellar musicianship, and fans in high places. The four-piece powerpop band is comprised of identical brothers Sean and Dominic Kelly, their younger brother Brendan, and Shaun Rhoades. The band will release their fourth CD “Be Nice Be Careful,” in January.  The new disc was recorded with music legend Mitch Easter as producer and Ted Comerford as co-producer. Known for his work with bands like R.E.M. and Pavement, Easter brought his trademark jangle-pop sound to the band’s compositions.

In 1965 Andrew Loog Oldham, the Rolling Stones svengali, asked filmmaker Peter Whitehead (The Fall, Tonite Let’s All Make Love in London) to accompany them on a quick tour of Ireland. Whitehead was astonished. Not only by the incredible power of the Stones’ performances but especially by the raw energy of the crowds of young people that rushed them everywhere. This new version of this behind-the scenes diary of the early Stones has never been seen; Mick Gochanour and Robin Klein, the team that brought The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus to the screen, have painstakingly restored over 90,000 frames of optical screen prints and negative, going back to the original sound tapes and 3-track live recordings. Included are electrifying performances of “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “The Last Time,” and “Time is on My Side.” Charlie Is My Darling is an invaluable document, the unseen story of the band becoming the legend.

In addition the feature, the film includes an introduction with Kurt Loder, a filmmaker interview with Dave Grohl and Andrew Loog Oldham, a bonus feature on the restoration of the film, and interviews with the band members.

Some of the many themes addressed in this year’s 2nd annual Arlington International Film Festival are the skill of ‘story-telling’ as is taught and practiced in Marrakech, the historical journey of Indian sarodist, Maestro Ali Akbar Khan and his legendary music, an African-American’s journey from the segregated south to national recognition told through his carving, tooling and dyeing of pictures on leather, non-violence practiced by a little-known movement in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, an intimate spiritual interaction among a trio of human beings during the Holocaust… caught up in a moment of history told through performances of lieders by Schubert, Schumann and Wolf, autism and the struggle of a family to survive it’s demands, and what about the reality of reaching middle age in 2012 and not having found a partner; can we embrace this and celebrate life as it is and still feel whole?  In addition to film screenings there will be Q & A’s with filmmakers/main characters, panel discussions, special live performances and more.

The Arlington International Film Festival is much more than just a film festival; it is a celebration of cultures as well as being a platform for recognizing the common global human experience.  Please come and share these experiences with us.

Presented by Sound Cinema

MUSIC FROM THE BIG HOUSE is an extraordinary story about finding hope, joy and music behind bars. Rita Chiarelli, Canada’s Queen of the Blues, takes a pilgrimage to the birthplace of the Blues: Louisiana State Maximum Security Penitentiary, a.k.a Angola Prison – formerly the bloodiest prison in America.  Rita’s trip turns into an historic jailhouse performance, playing with – rather than for – inmates serving life sentences. Their shared bond of music, and Chiarelli’s ebullient personality, draw striking revelations from the inmates. Rather than sensational stories of convicts, we witness remarkable voices of hope as their love of music radiates humanity and redemption on their quest for forgiveness. Official Film Web Site:

  “This is truly an extraordinary documentary which finds hope in the darkest of places, and the music which comes out of it is exhilarating. It’s going to be hard to find another documentary this year with as much heart as this one.” Los Angeles Examiner

  “wow…WOW! A film that anyone with hope in his heart will appreciate.” Blog Critics

  “Excuse me for gushing, but documentary filmmaking does not get any better than this. This is one of those documentaries that deserve to be seen by… everyone.” Cine Source Magazine

The Goddess Diaries began as an experiment. Several women were asked to write about a specific milestone in their life as part of a Winter Solstice performance at a local church. Borrowing from the Western European agricultural wheel of the year, each monologue represents a time in the growing/harvest season; likewise, each season is a metaphor for each woman’s life event. From a seventeen-year-old’s first gynecological exam to a sixty-six-year-old’s reflection on her divorce and a tween’s exuberance over the success of her first girl-boy party, the storytellers range in age from 11 to 66.

Reserved Seating, $25

In 1995, Zoso was formed to create the most mesmerizing and accurate portrayal of “the biggest band of the 1970’s” - Led Zeppelin (Rolling Stone Magazine). Each member was selected to portray both the appearance and playing styles of Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Bonham, and John Paul Jones. Zoso almost immediately developed an outstanding regional reputation and were awarded “Best Tribute Act in California” by Rock City News.

In 1999, Zoso began touring nationally, playing a remarkable 2,400 live performances, honing their show to become one of the most musically and visually rewarding acts in North America. Their passion, musical ability, showmanship and precise attention to detail earned them critical acclaim, name recognition and a large loyal following. The Los Angeles Times hailed the group as being “head and shoulders above all other Zeppelin tributes,” and the Chicago Sun-Times declared Zoso to be “the closest to the original of any tribute.”

Every year since its conception, Zoso continues to play 150 - 180 high profile concerts at performance arts centers, civic centers, theaters, festivals, and universities. Since 2004, the band has been working on numerous shows with Live Nation including a rotation of 9 House of Blues venues. The four permanent members’ mastery of authentic vintage instruments coupled with spot-on vocals, guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards, their compelling stage persona and distinct Led Zeppelin sound, with astounding visual imagery recreates the music, magic, and mystery of a Zeppelin concert. Each of the timeless hit songs performed in their sets are known and loved by generations of fans.

Zoso is comprised of Matt Jernigan (Robert Plant), John McDaniel (Jimmy Page), Adam Sandling (John Paul Jones), and Greg Thompson (John Bonham),

If you missed Led Zeppelin live in the 70’s or are looking for a great chance to relive the “Hammer of the Gods” phenomenon, you must experience what the St. Petersburg Times calls “the most exacting of the Zeppelin tribute bands in existence.”

The Rise And Fall Of The Clash features previously unseen footage of the band at work and at play, interviews with the individual band members and with those who knew them well, and traces the downward trajectory of a band who were at one point “The Only Band That Matters”. This is not a film that pulls any punches, but neither does it overlook the life-changing effect that The Clash brought to so many. Over 90 minutes it paints the fascinating inside story of rival, treachery and betrayal, and the internal band dynamics and managerial interferance that ultimately led The Clash to self-destruct.

Aint it Cool News wrote, “I loved every moment… the first Lovecraftian film done completely right.”  Film Threat says, “(Director) Branney nails the spirit of Lovecraft.”  And the Chicago Examiner wrote, “reviews cannot do it justice - it must be seen to be believed.”

THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS (103 min), Lovecraft’s classic tale of alien horror bursts onto the screen in the style of the classic horror films of
the 1930s. Professor Albert Wilmarth investigates legends of strange creatures in the remote hills of Vermont. His inquiry reveals a terrifying glimpse of the truth that lurks behind the legends. A thrilling adventure of supernatural horror.

THE CALL OF CTHULHU (47 min), a silent movie shot in Mythoscope, is HP Lovecraft’s most famous story. It is the only story to feature the
celebrated monster Cthulhu and follows an adventurous young man’s crusade to unravel the Cult of Cthulhu. The story embodies HPL’s nihilistic world view, his cosmic perspective, and his sense that mankind is doomed by its own insignificance.

In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watch dials

Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights for her day in court. Written with warmth and humor, critics called Radium Girls “powerful” and “engrossing”. The case of the five “Radium Girls” forever changed labor laws in the United States, traveling all the way up to the Supreme Court and leading to major changes in workers compensation.  The show passionately proves the importance of advocates on both sides representing their clients to the best of their abilities.

The Monterey Pop Festival ran for three days in June 1967. For most of the five shows, the arena was jammed to bursting with perhaps as many as 10,000 people. The live performances were spectacularly successful. Janis Joplin, who was singing with Big Brother and the Holding Company, pulled out all the stops with a raw, powerful performance that helped establish her as the preeminent female rock singer of her day.

The Who climaxed a brilliant set by smashing their equipment at the conclusion of “My Generation”. Jimi Hendrix (in the American debut of the Jimi Hendrix Experience) offered an awesome display of his virtuosity as a guitarist and as a showman, humping his Marshall amplifiers and then setting his Stratocaster ablaze. Another highlight was Ravi Shankar’s meditative afternoon of Indian ragas. And then there was Otis Redding, the dynamic soul man turned in what many present believe was the festival’s best performance. ABC offered $400,000 for network rights to Pennebaker’s film (which was released in theaters after ABC decided it was too far out for the TV audience).
Featuring:
Janis Joplin “Combination of the Two”
Scott McKenzie “If You’re Going To San Francisco”
The Mamas and the Papas “Creque Alley”, “California Dreamin’”, “I’ve Got A Feelin’”
Canned Heat “Rollin and Tumblin’”
Hughy Masekela “Bajabula Bonke” (Healing Song)
