Our Town It’s the final weekend of an American classic at Winder Barrow Community Theatre, directed by Léland Downs Karas. Thornton Wilder’s Our Town won a Pulitzer Prize in 1938; when it was revived in 1989 it won a Drama Desk Award and a Tony Award. The masterfully metatheatrical script sets the play in a theater rather than a place, though the theater stands for a fictional town called Grover’s Corners.
We didn't learn much from the No. 148 Classic City Rollergirls' recent 226-54 demolition of the visiting No. 137 Tragic City Rollers in the Akins Arena at the Classic Center on Apr. 16. The 007-themed high school prom being held in the facilities atrium provided more tension and drama.
Tomorrow is G-Day, so good luck parking, but Creature Comforts—which opened on Twilight weekend in 2014—will celebrate its second anniversary Saturday with tours featuring a bunch of special one-of beers (in addition to the old standbys).
After first saying there would be no musical performance at Saturday's G-Day game, explaining that all the (country) acts they wanted to book were otherwise engaged, the UGA Athletic Department has announced that Georgia-based megastar Ludacris will perform just prior to Saturday's inter-squad matchup.

A Peculiar Noise, a free-flowing documentary about the Athens music scene, will have its official premiere Saturday, Apr. 2 at the Atlanta Film Festival, when it screens at 7 Stages Theatre at 7:30 p.m.
Directed by onetime Athenian Jorge Torres-Torres, the film takes its name from an Olivia Tremor Control song and "documents the past and present of DIY underground music in Athens, GA," according to the festival's blurb.

All artists want to make their music memorable and meaningful. On Apr. 8, 1997, an alternative rock band called Third Eye Blind released the track “Semi-Charmed Life” and expected nothing to come of it. Over the next few years, the song became one of the most recognizable tunes in the world.
But the '90s were a long time ago, and Third Eye Blind frontman Stephan Jenkins is not a nostalgic person. Although “Semi-Charmed Life” brought Third Eye Blind into the public eye, it also brings Jenkins back in time when all he wants to do is move forward.
