Beach Rats screening

Beach Rats screening
Description:

On the outskirts of Brooklyn, Frankie, an aimless teenager, suffocates under the oppressive glare cast by his family and a toxic group of delinquent friends. Struggling with his own identity, Frankie begins to scour hookup sites for older men. When his chatting and webcamming intensify, he begins meeting men at a nearby cruising beach while simultaneously entering into a cautious relationship with a young woman. As Frankie struggles to reconcile his competing desires, his decisions leave him hurtling toward irreparable consequences. Eliza Hittman’s award-winning Sundance hit is a powerful character study that is as visually stunning as it is evocative.

Winner: Directing Award (Dramatic) - Sundance Film Festival 2017

Patti Casey and Tom Mackenzie
Description:

Patti Casey and Tom McKenzie will be performing for the Burnham Music Series, at Burnham Hall in Lincoln, on Saturday, January 13th. Patti is an award winning songwriter and her voice will melt your heart. Tom’s Banjo and voice are a perfect compliment, as the two of them weave their way through the many styles of traditional based songs and tunes. You will leave one of their performances with toes tapping and a smile on your face. Over their professional careers, both Patti and Tom have presented many school shows, adorned many a private party, packed many a hall, while traveling all lower 48 states bringing great tunes and polished harmonies to appreciative audiences. They will happily make any event shine or charm any audience with their Banjo, Guitar, Hammered Dulcimer, Flute, Keyboard, Ukulele, seated clogging, and fine humor. Everything from French Canadian dance tunes, to Tin Pan Alley, to Old Time Country, to their own impressive originals is likely to be on the musical menu. Great harmonies and wonderful instrumentation are the hallmark of these two much traveled musicians. Tickets are $10 for adults, and free for teens and children. Doors open at 7:00 p.m., and the show begins at 7:30. Refreshments will be served. For more information, call: 388-6863.

Neko Case

Neko Case Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Neko Case is a major poet by any standard, a songwriter less interested perhaps in traditional narrative form than in distilling a pure moment of time. Shes an artist whose songs are so textured in their presentation that the subtleties filter into the subconscious while the overall effect astonishes. But rather than each of her progressive albums disposing of what came before it, there is, instead, a sense of continuation at play--in which every album exists like the subsequent chapter to a novel that grows more complicated and intriguing as it progresses.

Time: 1/13/18 7:30pm
