Azure Ray


I’ve been listening to Azure Ray for years after hearing of them through the Bright Eyes/Saddle Creek/Omaha music scene, so I was really excited to see them when they came to The ArtsCenter a couple weeks ago! Here are some shots of the show, which also featured James Husband and Dead Fingers.

Don’t forget that over the holiday tickets for the 8th annual American Roots Series went on sale! Learn more and buy tickets here.

Happy Thanksgiving!

The ArtsCenter recently welcomed Girlyman back to the Carrboro. I didn’t make this show, but last year was great, and I am sure this one was even better. Check out some photos below, kindly submitted by audience member Chris Donald. They are some great shots (using a telephoto, I think)

PlaySlam! 8

Filed under: Theater — Tags: , , , — Lisa Pepin @ 12:43 pm

The 8th annual PlaySlam! came to the ArtsCenter this weekend. The audience was treated to an evening of competition as playwrights competed for fame and the $100 prize.

Here’s how it works: Playwrights each submit two very short plays, 1-3 minutes long. Actors come in at 5 p.m. and spend a hectic three hours with their playwrights until showtime at 8 p.m. Each playwright presents a play in the first round, and then the audience votes for its five favorites. Votes are tallied, and the top five writers present their second plays in the second round. The audience votes again for its favorite, and the playwrights field questions from the audience while the final tally is counted. Then, the winner takes all!

Check out some photos from the event below, click “more…” to see photos from all of the short plays!

Backstage at The ArtsCenter: Transactors


Friday night, the Transactors came back to The ArtsCenter for “Gratitude,” an improv show involving characters they created out of three random adjectives. I went backstage to see what exactly goes on before one of their shows. Check it out below, and check back later for photos of the show!

On Friday, the ArtsCenter welcomed the Baby Loves Disco Lemonade Tour to town. There was great music, adorable dancing babies, face paint and healthy snacks, all for a great cause! The Lemonade Tour is designed to raise money an awareness for Alex’s Lemonade Stand, a non-profit which raises money to fight childhood cancer.
