March 27th, 2020

As we all continue to Shelter in Place and practice safe Social Distancing, we are finding that turning away from the news and focusing on uplifting and hopeful messages provided by artists and musicians and the treasures they create, are quite beneficial.

Lewis, however, may be taking local live concerts to the next level for other artists. Lewis Knudsen is currently (right now!) performing a 12-hour live concert on Facebook! You can find his live stream... Read More

What You Might View While Sheltering in Place

March 26th, 2020

Ted Hicks worked in film in NYC, was in charge of awarding the Christopher Award, and was a college friend of mine at the University of Iowa. Ted has put together a list of good things to stream while we’re all stuck at home social distancing, and I have added my own favorites and added some specifics to his list. “A few days ago, Gary Davis, who I’ve known since 1st grade in Nemaha, Iowa, asked for some TV/cable/streaming recommendations,” Ted said. “I put together a bunch of titles and sent it to him.. I know many of you will already know a lot of these shows, but there... Read More

Mourning The Loss Of A Quad-Cities Theatrical Giant

March 26th, 2020

T.S. Eliot had it all wrong. In “The Waste Land,” the poet wrote “April is the cruelest month.” Well, five days before we can kick it into the dustbin of history, it’s safe to say that dishonor now belongs to March. At least March 2020, which has seen one bone-crushing loss after another for many around the world, me especially. Just one of the latest is from our beloved Quad-Cities theater community – of which I’ve been honored to share as longtime arts reporter for the Dispatch/Argus (and later Quad City Times), as well as piano accompanist and occasional stage performer. The singular... Read More

Delivery, Carry-Out and Curbside Options in the Quad Cities

March 25th, 2020

The times, they are a-changin’. Maybe for a couple weeks, maybe more. Amidst all of the cancellations, closures and ‘social distancing’ demands, one thing rings true: the recent COVID-19 outbreak in our country is forcing everyone to make some adjustments to their daily lives. Adaptation will get us through these times, thankfully. And no one knows adaptation better than local businesses right now. With the latest mandate that all bars and restaurants in Illinois and Iowa cannot open their doors to dine-in customers, some changes have been made. Whether new delivery, carry-out or curbside... Read More
