The Beehive’s Rick Bentley recommends the Friday night show he saw. He writes:
Got a very pleasant surprise when attending the “3-Degrees Off Center!” performance at the Spectrum Art Gallery. The event not only included a musical treat from Barbara Anderson-Jones, but her rockin’ selection was intertwined with the soul-touching poetry of Aideed Medina. It was a double the entertainment value for the ridiculously low price of $5.
Anderson-Jones skillfully brought a classical touch to contemporary music by the likes of Seal, Sting and Metallica. Her performance was a soothing set that captured the essence of hard rock with a soft touch.
Equally entertaining was Medina, whose poetry had a captivating rhythm that was in perfect harmony with Anderson-Jones.
You can catch their work at 8 p.m., Saturday Feb. 28; 9 p.m. Wednesday, March 4; and 6:45 p.m., Saturday, March 7.
