When: 11/11 8PM

With legends like George Jones, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard all passed on, country music purists often echo the question Jones himself asked: “Who’s going to fill their shoes?” The answer, in part, is Marty Stuart. While he’s too gracious to admit it himself, the Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and musician is living, breathing country-music history.

He’s played alongside the masters, from Cash to Lester Flatt, who discovered him; been a worldwide ambassador for Nashville, Bakersfield and points in between; and safeguarded country’s most valuable traditions and physical artifacts.

When: 11/13 8PM

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! Straight No Chaser is an a cappella group which formed at Indiana University back in 1996. They shot to fame in 2006 with their Youtube video of “The 12 Days of Christmas” which has been seen more than 18 million times. This landed them a 5 album record deal with Atlantic Records and a series of very successful national tours.

If the phrase “male a cappella group” conjures up an image of students in blue blazers, ties, and khakis singing traditional college songs on ivied campuses… think again. Straight No Chaser (SNC) are neither strait-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch. They have emerged as a phenomenon with a massive fanbase and a long list of accomplishments including 2 RIAA Gold Certified albums, over 1.5 million concert tickets sold, over 1 billion streams on Pandora, and over 2 million albums sold worldwide. Straight No Chaser is the real deal, the captivating sound of nine unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental sense… and with a sense of humor.

ZZ Top

When: 11/14 8PM

ZZ Top lay undisputed claim to being the longest running major rock band with original personnel intact and, in 2004, the Texas trio was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Of course, there are only three of them – Billy F Gibbons, Dusty Hill, Frank Beard — but it’s still a remarkable achievement that they’re still very much together after almost 50 years of rock, blues, and boogie on the road and in the studio.

The Thanksgiving Play

When: 11/12-14

How does one celebrate Thanksgiving and Native American Heritage Month at the same time? In Larissa FastHorse’s biting satire, this is the question facing three “woke” white thespians tasked with devising an elementary school pageant about the first Thanksgiving while avoiding any culturally appropriative missteps. A roast of the politics of entertainment and well-meaning political correctness alike, The Thanksgiving Play puts the American origin story itself in the comedy-crosshairs.

Illiterate Light

When: 11/13 8PM

Where: Jack Rabbits

Illiterate Light is a versatile Virginia-based duo with a vagabond spirit and a resolute D.I.Y. work ethic. Emerging in the late 2010s, the group draws from a wide array of styles, from raw, guitar-driven indie rock and kaleidoscopic neo-psychedelia to harmony-laden folk. The project originated in the Shenandoah Valley in 2010, when multi-instrumentalists Jeff Gorman and Jake Cochran began playing music together while working on an organic farm. They eventually took over the farm themselves, where they combined their love of art and agriculture into a rich community, touring by bicycle and building a loyal local following. In 2015 the duo decided to leave their farm and focus exclusively on music, adopting the moniker Illiterate Light, with Gorman on guitar and foot-pedal synth bass and Cochran operating a minimalist standup drum kit.
