Alice DiMicele celebrates the release of her thirteenth album, Swim, with a couple of performances in the KLCC listening region, including Thursday evening, January 29th at the Axe and Fiddle in Cottage Grove, and Friday evening, January 30th at Tsunami Books in Eugene.  Alice DiMicele stopped by the KLCC studios, along with Mikey Stevens, to perform three songs off of Swim.

The Cottage Theatre merges Shakespeare’s classic comedy 12th Night with the music and culture of Havana, Cuba in the 1950s. Director Tony Rust speaks with Eric Alan about the creative merger, and whether or not the theatre can affect foreign policy.

After years of touring with their respective bands, Ty Greenstein and Ingrid Elizabeth decided to take some time off the road to focus on songwriting and the Real Women, Real Songs challenge. One year and 104 songs later, their new duo, Mouths of Babes was born.

Palladine Studios is a new community hub for performance art and media in Newport, created by sisters Carly and Audrey Bryann Young, who are in their early twenties. Carly Bryan Young speaks with Eric Alan about their vision, and why swordfighting is involved.

(sounds of set building)

Milagro is getting a show ready to go on the road. The painted cloth, canvas and rope emulate a circus. Co-founder Dañel Malan says that goes back to the roots of Latin American peasant theater:

"The campesino came from the old tradition of carpa, so that was how they would do the shows, in a tent."
