Apr 15   "At the Warehouse" featuring Sam Burchfield
With an honest voice, a band of buddies and a fancy hat, Sam Burchfield has managed to build a strong career as an independent artist at just 25 years old. His latest EP, Unarmored, digs a few layers deeper into an already genre-crossing career. From folk, to funk, to southern soul — Sam captures it all on his sophomore release. “…Burchfield’s music is soulful. That is the perfect word for it. It doesn’t just describe his genre – it describes the heart of the artist himself…” -Emily McBride - VINYL MAG Unarmored was a collaboration with Burchfield’s band, building the tracks around his carefully crafted songs and fleshing them out on the road and in the studio. The EP is a sonic journey that jumps from folk love songs like ‘Spring’ to horn-driven jams ‘Accidentally Cute’ and ‘Don’t Forget My Name.’ “This EP was definitely about uncovering and discovering my own sound and direction. The name Unarmored fits because it’s me sort of laying bare all of the different styles that are floating around my head. There’s also a few tracks that are pretty intimate and personal that bring that vulnerability home a little bit.” Sam and the band have made ripples in the southeast US, opening for soul-phenom St. Paul & The Broken Bones, pop act Ben Rector, and growing a loyal fan-base the old-fashioned way with a powerful live show. Discover the new record Unarmored and keep your ears open for what’s next from this young talent. Sponsored by Friends of The Colquitt County Arts Center and Mobley Gin Company

Apr 21 - Apr 22   "Thoroughly Modern Mille" presented by Arts Center Theatre
Set in New York City in 1922, Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the story of young Millie Dillmount from Kansas, who comes to New York in search of a new life for herself. Her grand plan is to find a job as a secretary for a wealthy man and then marry him. However, her plan goes completely awry. The owner of her dingy hotel kidnaps young girls to sell to the Far East, her wealthy boss is slow in proposing marriage and the man she actually falls in love with doesn't have a dime to his name... or so he tells her. Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon lady of a villainess that audiences will love to hate, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment. From explosive tap numbers to a "Fred and Ginger" routine on a window ledge, this is the perfect show for theatres that are looking to show off the dance skills of their performers. In Millie Dillmount, musical theatre has found a new heroine for the ages in Thoroughly Modern Millie!

Apr 22   Hometown Teams a Smithsonian Exhibit
The Smithsonian’s Hometown Teams traveling exhibition examines the many roles that sports play in American society. Hometown sports are more than just games—they shape our lives and unite us and celebrate who we are as Americans. We play on ball fields and sandlots, on courts and on ice, in parks and playgrounds, even in the street. From pick-up games to organized leagues, millions of Americans of all ages play sports. And, if we’re not playing sports, we’re watching them. We sit in the stands and root for the local high school team, or gather on the sidelines and cheer on our sons and daughters as they take their first swing or score their first goal. Thanks to our never-ending appetite for competition and games, Americans now have a wider selection of sports to play and watch than ever before. Football, baseball, and basketball—America’s traditional hometown sports—share space on our calendars with soccer, hockey, tennis, running, wrestling, skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, surfing, sailing, and many other sports. What has occurred in our hometowns is nothing less than a sports revolution.
