Come to Earth House this Saturday night for a WESU-sponsored acoustic set from folk singer-songwriter Tracy Grammer! Start your night off listening to some amazing songs with great people in a great space (and maybe some tea too!)
Tracy Grammer is an acclaimed folk singer-songwriter who rose to acclaim as half of the folk duo Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer, where they released three incredible albums and went on tour with Joan Baez. Now, after Dave Carter’s death in 2002, Tracy Grammer continues to perform his songs in addition to writing her own. As a masterful storyteller, she has become one of New England’s most beloved folk artists, singing songs that both pull on your heart strings and make you smile. Daniel Pope (’16), an acoustic singer-songwriter following his EP “What a Strange and Vulgar Thing” last spring, will be opening.

2015. Japan. Dir: Takashi Miike. With Hayato Ichihara. 115 min.
Prolific madman Miike’s (Ichi the Killer, Audition) chaotic gangster-horroraction-satire follows a yakuza who turns vampire when bitten by his decapitated boss. He faces increasingly bizarre foes, including an assassin in a cotton frog costume who seems to be the harbinger of the entire world’s doom. Don’t think too hard about all this; just watch and enjoy.
