Billy Bob Thornton & The Boxmasters Coming to FolsomBilly Bob Thornton & The Boxmasters Coming to Folsom
by BWW News Desk - Aug 22, 2016

Billy Bob Thornton - yes, that Billy Bob Thornton - performs on Stage One of the Harris Center with his American country rock/rockabilly band The Boxmasters, a group of seasoned musicians whose music is rich in rhythm and story. They're the real deal: their third album Modbilly reached #1 on the Americana Radio Chart and #14 on the Americana Music Association's Top 100 Albums of the Year, and they've toured as Willie Nelson's opening act. "They're working in the tradition of musical mavericks Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson and Johnny Cash, surveying the world for stories of ordinary people" (Los Angeles Times). Onstage, "the group shifts seamlessly between Nuggets-type garage rock and country-inflected ballads, with Thornton prefacing the songs with alternatingly poignant and outrageous stories" (Rolling Stone).

'Thinking Pictures': Moscow Conceptual Art in the Dodge Collection September 6 to December 31, 2016 / Voorhees Special Exhibition Gallery 'Thinking Pictures' draws on one of the great strengths of the Norton and Nancy Dodge Collection of Nonconformist Art from the Soviet Union. It presents the visually provocative objects that distinguish Moscow Conceptualism from the forms associated with its namesake, the canonical oeuvres of American and British conceptual artists, in particular. This exhibition focuses on more than 40 individual artists and several collectives who lived and worked in Soviet Moscow from the 1960s to the 1990s. They were concerned with the essential task of creating an audience in an environment that lacked galleries, critics, and a viable art market but had its own institutional framework-one that privileged painting (Socialist Realism).

In a storied rock 'n' roll career of multi-platinum albums and timeless, ubiquitous radio smashes, Candlebox's sixth studio album, Disappearing In Airports, finds the renowned lineup infused with a new energy and openness.

'It's about growth and pushing the band in the direction for a new audience.'
