When CB's dog dies from rabies, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife. His best friend is too burnt out to provide any coherent speculation; his sister has gone goth; his ex-girlfriend has recently been institutionalized and his other friends are too inebriated to give him any sort of solace. But a chance meeting with an artistic kid, the target of this group's bullying, offers CB a peace of mind and sets in motion a friendship that will push teen angst to the very limits. Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion and sexual identity collide and careen toward an ending that's both haunting and hopeful.

The Briefcase Boys: A Blues Brothers Tribute Review
Danny Martinez Productions

Closing Date: February 19
Performance Schedule: Fridays and Saturdays at 11 p.m.
Tickets: $10
The Briefcase Boys are here to reinvigorate the spirit of classic Chicago Blues. So much of the music we hear today is auto-tuned, bass pounding, disco-tech poppy music. By the year 2020 the music known as the Blues will only be found in the mp3 section of your local library. And it is during trying times like these, when the Blues is all around us, that people of all creeds and conditions need to come together under one sound, and rock the funk out. So grab a drink, or several - matter of fact, you head up to that bar as often as you please (and tip well). Have fun, sing along, and be merry! IT'S A CELEBRATION!
