Your library will soon be full of dog-eared, book-marked, marginalia-filled tomes, making you look like the intellectual that you aren't. If you have enough money, you can impress all your highfalutin friends. Following the work days of four book handling employees, The Book Handlers is a satire inspired by a short story by Brian O'Nolan. Join John, Connie Diane, Linda, and Jard in their bizarre office as they pass the time making others look well-read. (more...)

Fox Theatre Presents CAR SEAT HEADREST Fox Theatre Presents CAR SEAT HEADREST
by BWW News Desk on February 16, 2018 in Denver

Toledo always knew he would return to Twin Fantasy. He never did complete the work. Not really. Never could square his grand ambitions against his mechanical limitations. Listen to his first attempt, recorded at nineteen on a cheap laptop, and you'll hear what Brian Eno fondly calls 'the sound of failure' - thrilling, extraordinary, and singularly compelling failure. Will's first love, rendered in the vivid teenage viscera of stolen gin, bruised shins, and weird sex, was an event too momentous for the medium assigned to record it. (more...)

The Descendents Come to Boulder Theatre The Descendents Come to Boulder Theatre
by BWW News Desk on February 13, 2018 in Denver

The DESCENDENTS invented pop punk. Overstatement? Perhaps, but spend ten minutes scanning FM or the idiot box and you're bound to witness a ditty or video that tips its hat to a musical genre that was refined to a high art -- if not created outright -- by the 'Dents. Formed in 1978 against the fertile musical backdrop of Los Angeles' South Bay scene (see: Black Flag, Minutemen, SST Records, etc.), the caffeine-addled crew released their first 7' single 'Ride The Wild' as a trio in 1979. Not long after, the boys recruited one Milo Aukerman (microbiology Ph.D. in waiting and poster boy for adolescent ne'er-do-well alienation) for vocal duties. (more...)
