Hers was a school of faraway places.” So when Lola's teacher asks the students to draw a picture of where their families immigrated from, all the kids are excited. Except Lola. She can't remember The Island—she left when she was just a baby. But with the help of her family and friends, and their memories, Lola's imagination takes her on an extraordinary journey back to The Island. As she draws closer to the heart of her family's story, Lola comes to understand the truth of her abuela's words: "Just because you dont remember a place doesn't mean it's not in you."

Seventeen years ago Rod Picott dropped his tool belt, picked up an acoustic guitar and
released his first album Tiger Tom Dixon’s Blues. The acclaimed debut put a nail in the coffin
of his construction career and ignited his second career as a singer-songwriter. With his new
album, Out Past The Wires, that second career reveals itself in full flame.
The sprawling twenty-two song Out Past The Wires ranges from whispery ballads to guitar
driven rockers and hits every musical spot between. Like much of Picott’s catalog, many of
the songs on Out Past The Wires center around the lives of working people and the losses,
defeats and small victories that can come hard won in a calloused world. It is here in the
ordinary where Picott finds the gold he mines so beautifully on songs such as “Take Home
Pay” – one of four songs written with longtime friend and co-writer Slaid Cleaves.

“I'm on my way down to the pawnshop
A couple hundred is all I need
If I have to I’ll hit the blood bank
I’m bone dry but I can always bleed”

But there is also an air of defiance that runs through many of the songs this time around.
On “Fire Inside” Picott growls.

“ I got fire down inside
A heart darlin’ beating hard and wild
In the pouring rain
I will stand and testify
Cause I got a fire down inside.”

Picott’s eye for the revealing detail and sense of empathy has brought praise from music
critics since his debut and those qualities, as well as a potent defiance is on full display across
Out Past The Wires. Now 52 years old and nine albums into his music career Picott is more
prolific than ever. The twenty-two songs were culled from a staggering number of seventy-
eight. In the two years between Fortune and Out Past The Wires, Picott has also become a
published poet (God In His Slippers – Mezcalita Press) written a screenplay and is releasing
collection of short stories, also titled Out Past The Wires, that accompanies the release of the
album. Many of the characters from the songs on the album find their stories expanded and
even more finely detailed in the book.
For production duties Picott turned again to Neilson Hubbard (Kim Richey, Matthew
Perryman Jones) who produced Picott’s most recent album Fortune. The recording band
consisted of Will Kimbrough/Electric Guitars (Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Rodney
Crowell) Lex Price/Bass (K.D. Lang), Evan Hutchings/Drums (Brandi Carlisle) and Kris
Donegan/Electric Guitars (Sara Evans). The band worked quickly in studio, relying on the
instincts of world-class players and Hubbard’s steady hand to guide the ambitious project.
Out Past The Wires is the latest and one of the most potent pieces of work from Rod
Picott since he left his hammer to rust and sharpened a new set of tools all those years ago.
Picott will be touring throughout 2018 and 2019 in support of the album and book release.
Tour dates can be found at www.rodpicott.com

Ken Haller – Song By Song By Sondheim
April 6-7, 2018
Friday & Saturday 8pm
$25 General Admission
This will be the Year of Stephen Sondheim in St. Louis, as he is honored with the prestigious 2018 Saint Louis Literary Award. To salute the master lyricist and composer, Ken Haller is thrilled to reprise his critically-acclaimed debut cabaret show, “Song by Song by Sondheim.” In songs as sentimental, witty, lacerating, sweet, and rollicking as Not a Day Goes By, Everybody Says Don’t, Losing My Mind, Not While I’m Around, Marry Me a Little, and his own unique take in Send in the Clowns, Ken displays the gifts that led the St. Louis Post-Dispatch to name him…
“Best St. Louis Cabaret Performer 2015.”
“A terrific show! A model of what cabaret should be!” Gerry Kowarsky, Two on the Aisle
“Hilarious! Sheer brilliance!” Steve Callahan, KDHX
