King Crimson

September 10, 2019

After taking an extended break, progressive rock legends King Crimson returned to the stage in 2014, and they've been touring ever since. The new set up includes three drummers, which would be surprising for any other band but King Crimson. The group formed in London in the late 60s and went onto become one of the most influential progressive rock bands of all time.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

October 31 - November 1, 2019

The public's fascination with Tim Burton's iconic 1993 dark fantasy film The Nightmare Before Christmas hasn't faded since its release. In fact, it's become a tradition to watch Jack Skellington's deliciously dark misadventure on both Halloween and Christmas! Don't miss this film screening accompanied by a live orchestral score.

The String Cheese Incident Poster

The String Cheese Incident

November 7 - 9, 2019

The term 'Progressive Bluegrass' may not apply to many bands, but The String Cheese Incident is certainly one of them. The wildly inventive and slightly crazy jam band bring in influences from every genre under the sun and create a sound unlike any other.

David Sedaris Poster

David Sedaris

November 21, 2019

David Sedaris is a Grammy Award-nominated humorist, writer, comedian, bestselling author, and radio contributor. Much of his humor is drawn from his unconventional North Carolina upbringing, his varied stream of odd-jobs (Christmas elf at Macy's, anyone?) and plays to his self-deprecating strengths, and now often concerns his life today in France with his partner. He'll also give readings from his newest collection, the #1 selling Calypso.
