    • Beginning on November 3, we will screen three new Indie films: LUCKY, HUMAN FLOW and 78/52: HITCHCOCK’S SHOWER SCENE.
      http://www.kalfilmsociety.net/indie-film-series.php

      HUMAN FLOW was filmed by the Chinese artist/activist Ai Weiwei and follows a chain of urgent human stories that stretches across the globe in multiple countries.  It stands as a witness to its’ subjects and their desperate search for safety, shelter and justice.  This visceral work of cinema is a testament to the unassailable human spirit and poses one of the questions that will define this century: Will our global society emerge from fear, isolation, and self-interest and choose a path of openness, freedom, and respect for humanity?

    • Join us this winter at the Kalamazoo State Theatre for a performance by Australian guitarist, songwriter and occasional singer, Tommy Emmanuel!  Experience one full set of Tommy Emmanuel’s solo classic acoustic songs, and one full set of Christmas favorites with Pat Bergeson, John Knowles CGP, and Annie Sellick. Best known for his complex fingerstyle technique, energetic performances and the use of percussive effects on the guitar, Emmanuel has carved out his own style as a solo artist in recent years, releasing award-winning albums and singles.

      The accomplished artist threads three different parts simultaneously into his material, operating as a one-man band who handles the melody, the supporting chords and the bass all at once. Emmanuel’s technical gift and skill has earned him multiple awards from Guitar Player magazine and made him a Member of the Order of Australia.

    •  Jam scene pioneers and blues rock slayers, Big Head Todd and The Monsters, will be performing at Kalamazoo State Theatre January 18th. Join Big Head Todd and the Monsters as they tour for their eleventh studio album release, “New World Arisin.”

      Big Head Todd and the Monsters are not that big on anniversaries, so there won’t be any big hoopla over the fact that the band is officially crossing the three-decade mark this year. Thirty years would seem like something to commemorate, especially with the same core lineup, an achievement few other name-brand bands can boast of. Yet right now they’re less about celebrating stability than volatility, in the form of their eleventh studio album, New World Arisin’, which makes good on its forward-facing title with what might be the brashest rock and roll of their career. The old world can’t rest on any laurels, and neither will they.

      Hear Billboard chart topping favorites such as “Strategem,” “Beautiful World,” “Rock Steady,” “Black Beehive,” “Sister Sweetly” and newly released hits from their LP “New World Arisin” LIVE at Kalamazoo State Theatre this January!
