His studio practiceutilizes cinema and popular culture as conceptual frameworks to examine ways in which historiesare continually constructed and reconstructed.

After 17 years together, and a decade-long tradition with Jazz St. Louis, The Bad Plus announced a major change in the bands infrastructure last spring. Longtime pianist Ethan Iverson will be leaving the group, with Philadelphia native Orrin Evans joining the band in 2018. With Iversons final engagement set for December 2017, bassist Reid Anderson and drummer David King will debut the NEW version of The Bad Plus, with Evans, at the Bistro! With the new lineup, the band continues their long-standing tradition of being a leaderless trio with a committed belief in what theyve dubbed avant-garde populism the idea that serious music can be as engaging and accessible as it is forward-thinking and provocative.

A black hole is a region of space that is so massive and so compressed that its gravity overwhelms everything in the area. The gravity is so strong that nothing, not even light, should be able to escape it. However, Dr. Stephen Hawking proposed a way for some particles and energy to be emitted at the boundary of the black hole. The escaping particles are called “Hawking radiation”. Professor Carl Bender will discuss the nature of black holes and the ‘Hawking radiation” they may emit. Co-sponsored by St. Louis Astronomical Society and NASA MO Space Grant Consortium at Washington University
Artists dont really make albums like Lee Ann Womacks THE LONELY, THE LONESOME AND THE GONE anymore. Albums that seem to exist separate and apart from any external pressures. Albums that possess both a profound sense of history and a clear-eyed vision for the future. Albums that transcend genres while embracing their roots. Albums that evoke a sense of place and of personality so vivid they make listeners feel more like participants in the songs than simply admirers of them. Anybody who has paid attention to Womack for the past decade or so could see she was headed in this direction. THE LONELY, THE LONESOME AND THE GONE (ATO Records) a breathtaking hybrid of country, soul, gospel and blues comes from Womacks core. I could never shake my center of who I was, says the East Texas native. Im drawn to rootsy music. Its what moves me.

In Ayrshire, Scotland in 1801, a group of friends gathered to honor the memory of their beloved friend and poet, Robert Burns through a traditional meal and recitation of his poetry. Succeeding generations since then have held a Burns Dinner every January to immortalize Robert Burns and Scottish heritage. The Scottish St. Andrew Society of Greater St. Louis, dedicated to preserving Scottish culture in Missouri through education and community work, holds its own annual Burns Dinner for the Scottish-American community. The evening is the epitome of Scottish culture with bagpipers, Highland dancing, attendees donning their tartans, and learning what Burns and his poetry means to our ancestry. The event will take place on January 20th, 2018 at the Frontenac Hilton on Lindbergh Blvd. The room opens at 5:45 with a social, cocktail hour with dinner commencing promptly at 7:00 pm. Bagpipers from the St. Louis Caledonian Pipe Band and Highland Dancers provide the wonderful music and entertainment, interspersed with toasts and dedications recognizing the contributions of Scottish-Americans. Representatives from Scottish organizations like SPAE, Drones Club, and the St. Louis Scottish Games join to share in promoting and preserving the history of Scots, their ancestry, and the impact of Scots right here in St. Louis. The evening climaxes with a scholar honoring Burns with a special message, the Immortal Memory.
