The Last Post :(

Filed under: Uncategorized — Lyndsay Booth @ 5:19 pm

After 147 posts and 815 photos, The ArtsCenter photoblog’s run on WordPress is coming to an end. The ArtsCenter transitioned to a new website and will no longer be hosting this blog. But never fear, a new photoblog will operate off the new website. To see new blog entries, go to the ArtsCenter’s website, and click on the “Blog” tab on the right. A box will drop down showing you a stream of the latest blog posts. With the new blog, instead of scrolling down the page, the pictures will rotate by themselves! How cool is that? I’ll also add a link to this blog, which will still stay up, so you can revisit old memories.

Thanks for sticking with us! Be sure to check out the new site!

Guess that Photo!

Filed under: Music — Lyndsay Booth @ 1:40 pm

So we are trying something new here at the ArtsCenter photo blog, with the goal of making the blog a little more interactive.  Instead of post multiple photos from a show or event, I am only going to post one, without the performers faces. Its your job to try and guess the show and any other details of the photo you might know. Post your guesses in the comments below. In about a week I’ll put up the answer and some other photos from the show! If we get a good response, we will continue to do this every now and then. Feel free to leave other comments or feedback about the game in the comments below as well!

Cane Creek Cloggers


Last Saturday, the ArtsCenter welcomed the Cane Creek Cloggers and guests to the stage for some old fashioned dance, celebrating some of North Carolina’s cultural history. Guest dancers included the NC Youth Tap Ensemble, the Apple Chill Cloggers, Orange County’s Chi Rho Eta Step Team and Tríonóide Academy of Irish Dance. The dancers were accompanied by The Hushpuppies, a live string band.  A guest photographer, Larry Vellani, was kind enough to let us use his photos for the blog. I can’t post his photos to our site, but follow the link below to his Flickr album to see shots from the show, including some pre-show shots. The show was part of the ArtsCenter’s annual American Roots series, which celebrates the rich history of American musical culture. Check the ArtsCenter’s website for more information on upcoming shows in the series.

Deep Magic

Sharing with you some stuff from last year that never got a chance to be posted, here are some shots from a hilarious magic show the ArtsCenter hosted at the end of last year. Featuring two hilarious and talented magicians, Micah Cover and Joshua Lozoff , the show had the audience cracking up. I’ve tried to describe some of the magic tricks in the captions. And, as always, don’t forget to click more!

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory


The ArtsCenter’s holiday production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory continues tonight at 8pm. In case you aren’t familar with the story, five children, Veruca Salt, Mike TV, Augustus Gloop, Violet Beauregarde, and of course Charlie Bucket spend a day at Mr. Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. I sat in on dress rehearsal Wednesday and it was fantastic. You aren’t going to want to miss it. It will remind you why you fell in love with the story as a child and have your kids falling in love with it too. Check back throughout the week for more preview photos. No captions though. You have to come to the show!

Santa and the Allen Boys

Filed under: Music — Tags: , , , — Lyndsay Booth @ 11:28 pm

Looks like Santa has found a new favorite band- The Allen Boys. The ArtsCenter hosted a series of tailgates prior to UNC football games at University Mall this fall. Check out some shots of the final concert featuring The Allen Boys, courtesy of Tess Mangum Ocana, the ArtsCenter’s concert director. The Allen Boys are a North Carolina based Southern Sacred Steel band and can next be seen at the ArtsCenter during the Southern Sacred Steel Festival, March 17-20, 2011.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Girlyman

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)

Early this month the ArtsCenter welcomed acclaimed guitarist and singer Chris Smither to the stage. Smither, whose prolific career has spanned 4 decades and 12 albums, has had songs appear in various film and television shows and has toured world-wide.  Check out some shots below courtesy of the photoblog’s best friend, Alex Forsyth.
