Prine’s latest record, Standard Songs for Average People, contains duet renditions of classic American songs with Bluegrass icon Mac “The Voice with a Heart” Wiseman. While this album is a slight departure from Prine’s renowned singer-songwriter approach, it promises to appeal to those seeking a trip back to when wholesome, well-crafted music mirrored simpler times. With tracks like “Old Cape Cod,” “Pistol Packin’ Mama” or “Blue Eyed Elaine,” the charm and character of Standard Songs softly reinvigorates the soul and gently reminds the listener life should be enjoyed - not rushed.

Bill Maher

Rick Bartalini presents


December 31, 2012

For the last twenty years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny, political talk can go on American television. First on “Politically Incorrect” (Comedy Central, ABC, 1993-2002), and for the last nine years on HBO’s “Real Time,” Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him twenty-nine Emmy nominations. In October of 2008, this same combination was on display in Maher’s uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, “Religulous,” directed by Larry Charles (“Borat”). The documentary has gone on to become the 8th Highest Grossing Documentary ever. Please note that there is a four ticket limit.
