Notes of a Native Song
Fri.-Sat. Dec. 9-10 | Singer-songwriter Stew's bluesy song cycle is his reaction to James Baldwin's writing, specifically the writer's examinations of race and class.

Jim Jefferies
Sat. Dec. 10 | On his Freedumb Netflix special, Aussie comic Jim Jefferies had a good laugh at the crazy idea of electing Donald Trump president.
