Kudos and thank you to JCC's CenterStage Theatre and playwright Jason Odell Williams for staging the world premiere of DIVISION STREET in the Rochester area. It is a pleasure to participate as a member of the audience on a work of theatre that has not been curated and delivered here. The firsthand original experience of theatre is exciting, illuminating and authentic. Being an inaugural viewer requires a unique mindset and responsibility. It is the difference between being at a birth and receiving a phone call about a birth. Being one step removed from the situation doesn't dampen the joy but the experience is less visceral, and the emotional response is influenced by the enthusiasm or concern expressed by others. What a joy to be at the delivery! In his author notes, like a proud expectant parent, Williams muses about the birth of his play. He writes, 'I hope the play makes you laugh, makes you think and feel, but most of all, I hope it entertains you and gets you talking about everything the characters address in the play.' From opening night, I am happy to report his hopes fulfilled. The audience responded at curtain with a standing ovation and as they walked out the conversations started.

Ravens & Chimes will release their new album The Empty House on March 22 via Better Looking Records (pre-order). This week they shared their new single “Irreplaceable Artifacts” with MXDWN and the track will be available on all digital streaming services this Friday. About the song MXDWN says, 'The song has a loping rhythm and eerie instrumentation that recall vintage heartland rock with a strong mix of modern indie rock influence. The song breaks down to the earnestly-sung vocals and a kick drum at the end, allowing Ravens & Chimes to strip the song down to its barest elements. It's a fitting ending to an elaborately arranged yet ultimately straightforward rock song.'
