      Bully, Lightning Bug [outside]

      Anyone can play guitar, but Alicia Bognanno keeps the basics interesting. The Nashville artist stays close to the tried-and-true sounds of Nineties alt-rock, but Bully stands out from a sea of grunge torchbearers with syrupy hooks and a Tommy Pickles roar. 2015’s Feels Like went heavy on this breakneck sweetness, and 2017’s Losing slowed in an equally arresting depression. Last year’s Sugaregg, however, offered a triumphant return to the light and pummels with an even greater strength, a firecracker streak of pummeling drums and ringing feedback. On tour with lush New York indie rockers Lightning Bug, the zeitgeists of decades past are jolted back to life.

      Corps Multiple: Seule(s) en Scène

      Three women, but not together. Three women in isolation, witnessed by you, here, as they perform live. This is the new production of multidisciplinary company Corps Multiple, directed by Austin-based French choreographer Sandie Donzica. This original work explores the theme of isolation of the body – the female body – and how isolation is perceived and how it differs from body to body, country to country, culture to culture.
