“The Molasses Man & Other Delta Tales”

Crosstown Arts

The Molasses Man & Other Delta Tales serves as an anthology of stories based off of Ahmad George’s life and experiences with people they’ve encountered here and not. These works feature scenes with existing and non-existing figures from folklore and mythology sourced from the American South, elsewhere, and created.


Crosstown Arts

“Days” follows the everyday observations of the structures we interact with. The houses become more than just a residence, but become individuals themselves. The shadows start to blur the line of where the walls stop and where a presence might begin.

“But Then, Suddenly, I Was Looking From the Inside Out”

Crosstown Arts

“But Then, Suddenly, I Was Looking From the Inside Out” is about “no compartments.” Everything is mashing together in life all the time — and while Lapossy longs for stability and order — it's all happening at once and they love how that feels — what that allows for. Not to be confused with multitasking, this is a kind of nurtured chaos.

Modern Masters Jazz Series: Wes “Warmdaddy” Anderson and The Ted Ludwig Trio

The Green Room

Jazz alto and sopranino saxophonist Wessell “Warmdaddy” Anderson played jazz early on at the urging of his father, who was a drummer. He played in local clubs from his early teenage years, and studied at the Jazzmobile workshops with Frank Wess, Charles Davis, and Frank Foster. He also met Branford Marsalis, who convinced him to study with Alvin Batiste at Southern University in Louisiana.

Lawrence Matthews

The Green Room

On Friday, January 26, at 7:30 pm, the multi-hyphenated artist Lawrence Matthews will perform for the first time since retiring his former stage name Don Lifted at the Overton Park Shell in 2022. Independent and sitting on an album and a half of new material, this performance features all new compositions only heard by a select few at private listening events over the last year.

Known for his performances’ visual spectacle, Matthews dials it back offering a undistracted and direct connection between himself and the audience while presenting a full-bodied reflection of the south and its unrelenting hold both spiritually and physically. The new material exists as a musical portal and a radical contemporary extension of the sampled blues, soul, and jazz artists for which Matthews finds himself kin.
