Isle of Dogs ~ Wednesday, November 14 at 7:30PM

Wes Anderson’s latest film, and second foray in to Stop-Motion animation, is a hilarious and action packed romp through a possible alternate reality; a Japanese island populated entirely by canines. As one boy searches for his lost dog in this strange land, the film manages to be both a visual delight and an oddly prescient political commentary. 1 hour and 41 minutes, Rated PG-13, Beverly Arts Center, 2407 W 111th Street, Concessions, full bar and free parking. Tickets $6 ($5 BAC Members).

BAC’s Thankful for the Blues Party with The Smiley Tillmon Band and The NuBlu Band featuring Carlise Guy ~ November 21st at 7:30PM

The NuBlu Band has been performing dance, funk, pop and R&B together for more than seven years. The band is headed by Carlise Guy, Dughter of legendary Chicago Blues Musician Buddy Guy. They have performed with Buddy, all over Chicago, the Midwest and over seas. The NuBlu  Band includes: Carlise Guy (lead vocals), Mark Maddox (lead guitar), Dan Henley (drums) Kenyatta Gaines (back-up vocals) Michael Sterling (bass guitar) and Dave Holloway (keyboards).

One of the busiest blues outfits in Chicagoland, The Smiley Tillmon Band is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. There’s an obvious reason why the veteran guitarist’s booking schedule is so jam-packed: Smiley knows how to have a good time and makes sure his audience does too. After 55 years on the local blues scene, Tillmon serves up the blues and soul standards that people never seem to stop craving, his rich vocals and fluid guitar backed by a band that keeps his grooves tight and right.

Born Moses Tillmon in rural Jefferson County, Georgia, Smiley grew up on a hearty musical diet of gospel, country, and a little blues. His mother moved to Fort Lauderdale when he was ten; there he was exposed to calypso music, adding up to a singular list of influences. Tillmon took up guitar and was good enough by the dawn of the ‘60s to back Miami R&B singer Billy Miranda in the studio. He joined Sammy Ambrose & the Afro-Beats, a calypso-oriented band, touring from Canada to New York. Smiley bid the Afro-Beats adieu in 1962 and moved to Chicago. There he established himself on the blues circuit, playing with Billy “The Kid” Emerson, Denise LaSalle, and other South Side luminaries until he opted for a day job in 1977.

Upon his 2007 retirement, Smiley reverted to full-time musical status. He joined forces with bassist Tom Rezetko, and they’ve been inseparable onstage ever since. Kate Moss shares guitar duties with Tillmon; married to another blues guitar standout, Nick Moss, Kate’s sound is heavily influenced by Freddie King and Magic Sam (she fell in love with the blues at age 21 when she met Buddy Guy, and she’s shared stages with Buddy, Jimmy Johnson, Eddie Shaw, and Lurrie Bell, just to name a few). Drummer George Baumann completes one of the Windy City’s toughest blues combos, one that’ll keep you smiling from ear to ear. Beverly Arts Center, 2407 W 111th Street, Tickets $25 ($23 BAC Members).

The Four C Notes ~ Saturday, November 24 AT 8PM

Pioneered and headlined by John Michael Coppola, best known for his appearance in Chicago’s long running production of the Broadway smash hit Jersey Boys, THE FOUR C NOTES are the Midwest’s only tribute dedicated to recreating the music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons! Kick off your holiday season at the BAC! BEVERLY ARTS CENTER, 2407 W 111th Street, TICKETS $30 ($27 for BAC Members).

Nuts & Bolts: In the Mix ~ Sunday, November 25 at 3 & 7:30PM

The Joel Hall Dancers and Center returns its critically acclaimed Nuts & Bolts dance extravaganza! A reimaging of the Nutcracker hops cultures and genres while fusing classic Tchaikovskywith Duke Ellington and house music. BEVERLY ARTS CENTER, 2407 W 111th Street, TICKETS $27.50.

Trust ~ Wednesday, November 28 at 7:30PM

Possibly the greatest of the American indies of the early 90s, Trust is the oddest, darkest take on the madcap romantic comedy to appear in our national cinema. Featuring powerhouse “performances” (if that’s what one can call writer-director Hal Hartley’s preferred acting methodology) from the late Adrienne Shelly and the underrated Martin Donovan, this story of a pregnant girl on Long Island and the slightly older, hard-drinking man with whom she inexplicably falls into a relationship, just may have influenced films such as Donnie Darko and Ghost World, but remains, though more of an oddity, the more towering, and more poignant film. 1 hour and 47 minutes, Rated R. Preceded by Hal Hartley’s short film “Ambition”.  Special Guest – local filmmaker and Northwestern professor Spencer Parsons, present to talk about working with Hal Hartley back in the early 90s after the film. BEVERLY ARTS CENTER, 2407 W 111th Street, CONCESSIONS, FULL BAR, & FREE PARKING, TICKETS $6 ($5 BAC Members).
