Cinema a Go-Go goes dark in January with a dangerous double bill of film noir classics. Our guest programmer is film blogger Kellee Pratt, and she's picked a couple of buried treasures, including Too Late for Tears (1949) starring film noir regular Lizabeth Scott as a conniving femme fatale who'll bump off anyone who stands between her and a stolen suitcase full of cash. Ann Sheridan stars in Woman on the Run (1950) as an unsuspecting wife whose husband witnesses a murder and then flees the cops, with his wife, a sneaky reporter, the cops...and the killer in pursuit. 
 
Join us at Liberty Hall in downtown Lawrence, Friday, January 26. Tickets are $10, available at the doors, which open at 6:30 p.m.

Description: Andrea Gibson is not gentle with truths. It is this raw fearlessness that has led Gibson to the forefront of the spoken word movement—the first winner of the Women’s World Poetry Slam —Gibson has headlined prestigious performance venues coast to coast with powerful readings on war, class, gender, bullying, white privilege, sexuality, love and spirituality. Gibson’s work has been featured on the BBC, Air America, C-SPAN, Free Speech TV, and in 2010, was read by a state representative in lieu of morning prayer at the Utah State Legislature. On the fifth full-length album FLOWER BOY and the second book THE MADNESS VASE, Gibson’s poems continue to be a rallying cry for action and a welcome mat at the door of the heart’s most compassionate room. Notice: This performance contains mature content. Tickets are $14-$25. Submitted by: Madi Schulz Lied Center of Kansas

Kansas City Symphony Classical Concert: Mahler’s Seventh

Get more info about this event »

Description: Michael Stern, conductor MAHLER Symphony No. 7 Michael Stern leads the Kansas City Symphony in its debut performances of Mahler’s Seventh — an epic work that traverses a staggering variety of subjects and moods. The first four movements depict various aspects of nature and the mysteries of the night. Out of darkness, the finale emerges with radiant, euphoric sunshine. Scholars suggest the Seventh portrays the contrast of Mahler’s peaceful summers in the idyllic Austrian countryside with the frenzied schedule he maintained the rest of the year in Vienna. Tickets from $25. For more information or tickets, please visit kcsymphony.org or call (816) 471-0400. Submitted by: Beth Buchanan Kansas City Symphony
