Anthony Bourdain

November 22, 2016

To help celebrate the launch of his new cookbook Appetites, globe-trotting, action-hunting chef Anthony Bourdain is heading out on a new tour. Bourdain has promised his shows will be "an unyielding, brutally honest monologue reflecting on diverse culture, street cuisine and his travels to lesser-known locations around the world."

The Magnetic Fields

December 2-3, 2016

Ostensibly created as one of multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter Stephin Merritt's side projects for his laconic wit and verve, The Magnetic Fields have proven their strength from their 1991 debut '100,000 Fireflies' to vast '69 Love Songs'. Now, as Merritt enters his 50th year, they head out on a very special tour in support of his newest ambitious retrospective '50 Song Memoir', featuring one melodious number for each year of his illustrious half century.
