No Way Out is a 1950 black-and-white American film noir directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, and starring Richard Widmark, Linda Darnell, Stephen McNally and Sidney Poitier (in his screen debut) who portrays a doctor tending to slum residents whose ethics are tested when confronted with racism, personified by Richard Widmark as the hateful robber Ray Biddle.  One of the early pictures released during the McCarthy era about racism in America this movie doesn't shy away from the overt and aggressive bigotry of the Ray Biddle character.   This is not a study of subtle racism in society, or a commentary about sources and or solutions it's designed to slap you in the face and ask "What are you gonna do about it?   Show starts at 7p doors open at 6:30.  Tickets are $5 and can be purchased here.

Front Country February 28th in The Radio Room

This West Coast outfit was just a group of friends playing a monthly gig until 2012 and 2013 when Front Country gathered around a single microphone at the RockyGrass and Telluride festivals, and won first prize in those prestigious band contests that once launched the careers of the Dixie Chicks, Greensky Bluegrass and the Steep Canyon Rangers. The contest wins bolstered their confidence in their unique mix of original songwriting, vocal harmonies and instrumental virtuosity, steeling their resolve to take a leap of faith and become a full time touring band.
Their latest Album "Other Love Songs"  is Front Country’s first record relying on lead singer Melody Walker’s songwriting, first and foremost. With 8 of the 12 tracks penned by Walker, and the two instrumentals composed by mandolinist Adam Roszkiewicz, it is their most original body of work yet. Round out the intensely creative band arrangement style of guitarist Jacob Groopman, bassist Jeremy Darrow and five-string violinist Leif Karlstrom, and the synergy is electric.  All together, the majority of the songs are quite emotional in nature and tend toward relationship themes, sometimes with a twist, hence the title Other Love Songs. Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 at the door and can be purchased here
