      Dan Auerbach & the Easy Eye Sound Revue

      Since eighth Black Keys LP Turn Blue dropped in 2014, frontman Dan Auerbach put out both Yours, Dreamily with garage hook meisters the Arcs and sophomore solo disc Waiting on a Song last year. Now, out of his analog-as-hell Easy Eye Sound Studios in Nashville, the guitarist helms an old-school soul revue showcasing not only his own the-Band-at-Stax grooves and Robert Finley’s soul/blues/gospel mash-up, but Oakland’s Shannon & the Clams, whose new Onion LP sounds like a 1963 Top 40 chart.

      The People's Gallery

      You want a true reflection of the creative goodness that goes on in this town, citizen? As far as the visual arts are concerned, City Hall's People's Gallery nails it to the wall (in a manner of speaking) with another amazing collection of local work – more than 100 new pieces on display – from a panoply of masters and emerging artists alike. And we reckon Friday's opening reception will be sufficiently delightful to even be worth the hassle of finding a parking space – now that's a recommendation!

      Wally Workman Gallery: Malcolm Bucknall

      A chameleon-like eclecticism has characterized his work to various distinct periods of art-historical influences and beyond, but the common thread in Bucknall's imagery is an animal-human mix. It's a vivid personal mythology that we've reveled in before and are excited to see the newest manifestations of here.
