Bassem Youssef: The Joke Is Mightier than the Sword
Monday, November 6 at 7:30 PM Dubbed the Jon Stewart of the Arab World, Bassem Youssef was a cardiothoracic surgeon when he became the creator and host of the wildly popular TV show “Al-Bernameg” — the first political satire show in the Middle East. Originally a five-minute show shot from his laundry room and posted on YouTube after protests in Tahrir Square unseated Egypt’s ruling elite, it became the most-watched program in the region, with 30 million viewers every week. Throughout its three seasons, the show remained controversial for its hilarious and bold criticism of ruling powers.

Beth Hart
Tuesday, September 26 at 8:00 PM.

Beth Hart is on fire. Right now, the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter is riding a creative tidal wave, firing out acclaimed albums, hooking up with the biggest names in music, and rocking the house each night with that celebrated burnt-honey voice. Beth's latest album, Fire on the Floor (released in February 2017), is sure to build on her breakneck momentum: a release that even this fiercely self-critical artist describes as "pretty frickin' good."

An Evening with Bruce Campbell Featuring Last Fan Standing
Wednesday, August 30 at 7:30 PM.

Hosted live by Bruce Campbell, Last Fan Standing is an interactive trivia quest built from four primary pillars of content: fantasy, horror, sci-fi and superheroes. Not your average quiz show or trivia contest, Last Fan Standing tests your knowledge about the things that really matter. Through provided "audience response devices" (clickers if you insist on getting technical), each audience member participates in a series of multiple choice questions, where the players with the fastest-correct answers advance to the Podium Rounds. The Podium Rounds bring the top four (4) players from the audience to a winner-take-all trivia battle. After each round, the player with the lowest score is eliminated, until there is only one...Last Fan Standing!

All tickets include a signed hardcover copy of “Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B Movie Actor,” Campbell’s latest memoir. Campbell will sign books at the conclusion of the event.

Colin Stetson
Saturday, April 14 at 8:00 PM Henryk Górecki’s iconic third symphony, often called “Symphony of Sorrowful Songs,” made a huge impact on listeners in the early 1990s and was a musical touchstone for virtuoso saxophonist Colin Stetson. The original work’s three movements centered around three laments, each focused in some way about a child being taken away from a mother. Celebrated for the way he “demolishes clichés to unleash fresh, expected energies,” (Pitchfork) Stetson takes on the mammoth task of reimagining Górecki’s symphony for an expansive and contemporary sonic palate. Sorrow, his imaginative new interpretation of the heartbreaking work, is “timeless and of the moment,” (PopMatters) drawing on a uniquely constructed 12-member ensemble that employs electric guitars, synthesizers, drums, strings, woodwinds, and soprano to create transformative extensions of the emotional core of the piece.

Jeff Daniels
Saturday, November 25 at 8:00 PM.

In 1976, Jeff Daniels bought a Guild D-40 from Herb David’s Guitar Studio in Ann Arbor, threw it in the back of his old Buick, and moved to New York City. That guitar led to a creative outlet, became a solace, a road into the artist that he didn’t know existed. Now, over 40 years later, he releases his 8th record, Simple Truths.

Since 2000, Jeff has played venues such as The Barn at Wolf Trap in VA, New York City’s 54 Below, City Winery in Chicago, New York and Nashville, Austin’s Cactus Cafe, the Ram’s Head Tavern in Annapolis, MD, Mucky Duck’s in Houston, The Ark in Ann Arbor, MI, Chicago’s Old School of Folk Music, Seattle’s Third Door, Alaska’s Blue Loon in Fairbanks, as well as numerous opera houses and PACs throughout the country.
He has toured both coasts with his son’s band, the Ben Daniels Band, and has shared the stage with Lyle Lovett, John Hiatt, Joe Ely, Guy Clark, Keb' Mo’, and Bruce Hornsby.

Joe Biden
Wednesday, December 13 at 7:30 PM.

During his 45 years of public service, one of Vice President Joe Biden’s greatest strengths has been his ability to bring people together, even in crisis, even across difficult divides, all the while, respecting everybody at the table. This fall, Joe Biden will travel the nation for his American Promise Tour, a series of conversations that will go beyond the 24-hour news cycle and 140-character arguments to connect friends and neighbors around the topics that matter most. Biden will reveal the big political moments of his career, the life-altering choices he made, and the key traits that have helped him persevere through challenges. He will share how the loss of his son Beau tested his resolve, and how he is finding new purpose in a time of uncertainty. Each ticket includes a copy of Joe Biden’s forthcoming memoir, Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose (a $27 value, on sale November 14 from Flatiron Books).”

John McLaughlin & Jimmy Herring
Wednesday, November 15 at 7:30 PM On this tour, guitarist John McLaughlin revisits the legacy of his legendary Mahavishnu Orchestra with his co-headliner, virtuoso guitarist Jimmy Herring. Over five decades, McLaughlin has become one of improvised music’s most influential guitarists, composers, and bandleaders. Herring has been at the creative forefront of the thriving American rock-jam band movement for 25 years as lead guitarist of Widespread Panic. After separate sets by the two headliners with their own bands, they join forces for an expansive closing jam, revisiting the pioneering music that McLaughlin introduced in the 1970s with his deeply influential, genre-defying Mahavishnu Orchestra. This tour marks the 75-year-old McLaughlin’s first extensive US tour in seven years and his last American performances.
