Welsh producer R.Seiliog aka Robin Edwards returns with his new LP 'Megadoze' a subtle shift from the sonic palette of critically acclaimed 'In Hz'and 2016's 'Shedhead EP'. R.Seiliog creates a gentle stir from darkness, coaxing ambisonic visions of the void with synth-driven tides. 'Megadoze' refined prologue surges through visceral tapestries of static and haze merging ambient techno, musique concrète and field recordings.

Award-Winning Burlesque Documentary Partners with Bawdy Shop Burlesque & TUGG Theatrical Burbank, California - The world is opening their eyes to THE OLD STRIPPER. And she's coming to a local movie theater near you in Baltimore. Dixie Films has partnered with TUGG Theatrical and Bawdy Shop Burlesque to screen a special one-night theatrical event of the award-winning feature documentary film THE OLD STRIPPER at the Cinemark Egyptian 24 in Hanover, Maryland on December 5th . The film, made by the real-life Mother/Son filmmaking team Jack Truman and Opal Dockery, is an epic documentary film about a burlesque legend who travels across the country, coast to coast, visiting her old dancing cities of yesterday. Tugg, Inc. (www.tugg.com ) a web-platform that enables individuals to choose the films that play in their local theaters and create their own theatrical events, and Dixie Films, are excited to announce that THE OLD STRIPPER is available to screen nationwide through Tugg. The film is available through Tugg for special theatrical screenings across the country. The Baltimore screening will be the city's local premiere of the Tugg theatrical release. The award-winning film received top film honors at film festivals this summer in Des Moines, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Since it's World Premiere in June at the Interrobang Film Festival, THE OLD STRIPPER has screened over 15 film festivals worldwide, and will continue playing the film festival circuit this fall, in conjunction with the TUGG national release. Dockery was a burlesque dancer for over 20 years in the 1970's and '80's. Truman, her son, and director of the film, grew up on the road with her during her burlesque circuit. "This is very special to me", Truman stated in press materials. "The burlesque industry is a lost era. I grew up in that environment, in the adult entertainment business. As a child, I was raised around nudity and pornography. And as a filmmaker, I want to open people's eyes to a world they know nothing about. We are honored to partner with Kay Sera and Bawdy Shop Burlesque to provide the local area this opportunity to see this incredible documentary film THE OLD STRIPPER in Baltimore. We hope everyone takes this opportunity to take advantage of this unique program that provides the public the opportunity to see this important film at their local movie theater ". Over last summer, Truman and Dockery traveled coast to coast, to all 48 states and the District of Columbia, on an epic journey shooting footage in every state nationwide, interviewing dancers young and old, visiting Opal's old dancing cities from her burlesque circuit, seeing landmarks around the country, and interviewing people in the burlesque industry. "This is a story only we can tell", says Truman. Earlier this summer, Dockery was inducted in the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas, Nevada.

As I start my 5th month of reviewing Des Moines Theatre, I can't help but think about how each theatre brings its own unique voice to Des Moines and the surrounding areas. With as many voices as there are, there are still more stories that can be told. A few months ago, I started hearing about a new theatre forming called Theatre Midwest. I was excited to see a new voice come to the Des Moines theatre scene. Last night, May 9th, they officially opened their first show, "The Friendly Hour" by Tom Jacobson.

Cafe Nordo is known for their sumptuous meals combined with fun, lighthearted shows and rollicking music. A Nordo show basically promises a good time, or so I thought. While I didn't have a terrible time at their most recent offering, "Jitterbug Perfume", since I don't think it's possible to have a terrible time at a Nordo show, I will say I feel they bit off a little more than they could chew (pun intended). With a convoluted story and an overpowering band, the show failed to offer their usual evening that you could melt away into, but instead I found myself having to work way too hard.
