When Public Power Ceased To Be Private Property
The Koch brothers' aggressive attempts to get their candidates elected to office and the impact of Citizens United have brought to the fore the relationship between private wealth and the control of public power. Today we recoil at the notion that public powers, such as the right of justice, the collection of taxes, and even sovereignty could be owned, bought, sold, and inherited like a form of property. Yet this was the norm in the western world only three centuries ago. From judgeships, military rank, and government office to the Crown itself, all were considered to be, in some sense, the personal property of the holder. In this talk, Professor Rafe Blaufarb (Florida State University) will discuss the entanglement of public power and private property in early modern France, examine how this confusion came to be seen as intolerable, and detail the explosive decoupling of property and power at the heart of the French Revolutionary project of 1789.

Clark University Professor Robert Boatright (Political Science) will offer commentary.

The Roots of Everything is a lecture series sponsored by Early Modernists Unite (EMU)--a faculty collaborative bringing together scholars of medieval and early modern England and America in conjunction with the Higgins School of Humanities. Supported by funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the series highlights various aspects of modern existence originating in the early modern world and teases out connections between past and present.

Rafe Blaufarb is the Ben Weider Eminent Scholar and head of the Institute on Napoleon and the French Revolution at Florida State University. A specialist in Revolutionary and Napoleonic France, he has authored numerous books and articles on the social, political, and legal history of France during this period.

Grande-Première de “Présidentielles haïtiennes 2015: les vrais Enjeux”
”Présidentielles haïtiennes 2015: les vrais Enjeux”: un film de Yves Cajuste en Grande-Première au luxueux Auditorium de Milton High School le dimanche 18 Octobre 2015 de 5:00PM à 9:00PM. Dans ce film, Yves Cajuste met face à face, dans un débat télévisé, deux finalistes dans la course à la succession du président Michel Joseph Martelly.  Pourquoi l’école haïtienne ne produit pas assez de cadres pour satisfaire ses besoins de développement ?  Où et comment trouver de l’argent pour financer le développement d’Haïti?  Quelles sont les solutions alternatives aux 5 tonnes métriques de bois utilisées annuellement comme combustibles et dans la construction en Haïti?  Comment réduire la dépendance du pays par rapport à l’importation de produits agricoles et à l’aide alimentaire internationale ?  Pourquoi la transition vers la démocratie dure aujourd’hui encore?            Autant de questions sur lesquelles interviendront les deux finalistes du second tour des Présidentielles de 2015 avec deux visions de la réalité politique haïtienne de ces 30 dernières années: un courant conservateur de la droite politico-économique qui veut garder ses privilèges et une mouvance progressiste qui n’a de gauche que le discours …        La projection en Grande-Première du film “ Présidentielles haïtiennes 2015: les vrais enjeux” sera suivie d’un débat animé par Jean-Monard Métellus, Journaliste-Senior, présentateur de deux émissions à succès à Radio Caraïbes en Haïti et Co-Propriétaire de (agence d’Infos en ligne). C’est le premier déplacement professionnel dans le Massachusetts de cet analyste politique très respecté en Haïti comme à l’étranger.. FIN DU TEXTE

The Bookstore & Get Lit Wine Bar Present: Rebecca Kaiser Gibson: Opinel and Deborah Gorlin: Life of the Garment
The Bookstore & Get Lit Wine Bar
11 Housatonic Street, Lenox, MA 01240

Sunday, October 18, 2015 |2:00 PM|

Readings: POETRY

Rebecca Kaiser Gibson: Opinel
OPINEL is the name of a workaday knife from the Haute-Savoie wielded by shepherds and farmers in the high pastures of the Alps when a tool for paring, shaping, cutting into, scraping out of, or freeing is useful. These poems likewise cleave away the false and deceptive to clarify and reveal a startling and unifying wonder. In language radiant, lovely, and disturbing, Rebecca Kaiser Gibson explores the linkages between the uncomfortable familiar and the curiously intimate strange, making unexpected connections between phenomena. Arranged by association rather than chronology and connected by a sensual intelligence, this collection wanders from Maryland and India to Boston, France, New Hampshire and Ireland-from Ezekiel's Flight and the Book of Kells, to the Tamil goddess, Meenakshi.

Deborah Gorlin: Life of the Garment
In her vital, elegiac poems, Deborah Gorlin inventories her dead in urgent acts of recognition and commemoration. Family members-both nuclear and extended-appear in their native stories to reanimate local histories, intimate geographies, and lost times. In a different series of personae poems, Gorlin catalogues dolls and totems within their particular cultural habitats, which range from Africa to the Andes, and imagines their daemonic hopes, dreams and emotions. In a final act of inclusion, she takes stock of her own spiritual hesitations, yearnings, approximations, and explorations of such crazy topics as fingernails, Hebraic trees, and fat.

The Rugged / Bow Thayer & Kelly Ravin
THE RUGGED The Rugged began playing a handful of gigs around Maine, and then hunkered down to record a full length album. The resulting self-titled effort, recorded by fellow Waldo County native Ed Goguen is as smart as it is well, rugged, appropriately enough. There's something uniquely Maine about Travis Lloyd's brand of backwoods rock voodoo; smart and defiant, neither flashy or (God forbid) pretentious; well-played, thoughtful and with just enough distortion pedal abandon to get you moving. The blasts of rock on "Big Hearted Woman" are as welcome as the shimmering jangle of "So Wild." It's an uncommonly strong debut both lyrically and musically, one well worth listening to in full. BOW THAYER & KELLY RAVIN Bow Thayer has been singing and writing songs for as long as he can remember. Making music is who he is. He has lived up to his "reputation as a sublimely gifted artist" by pursuing a creative vision that seeks to lead Americana music into the future. Finally gaining national recognition, American Songwriter Magazine says this "onetime Levon Helm compatriot is the best artist to come from New England in recent years." Having played with such music luminaries as Levon Helm, John Hiatt, Booker T, and Ringo Starr, Bow has seen his fair share of travel across these United States of America and the World at large and plans to do more while supporting his records that feature his tales, truths and fantasies about the human condition. The transformation of Kelly Ravin has been fascinating to watch. And it might be a revelation to those who know him only as the lanky, inked-up guitar slinger and co-front-man of local outlaw-country-metal band Waylon Speed. When playing solo and stripped of the muscular trappings of Waylon Speed, Ravin lays himself bare. His reedy vocals are raw and aching, the open tones of his reverb-laden guitar echoing uncertainty and hope in equal measures. ATWOOD'S IS A MIX OF SEATING AND STANDING ROOM. PURCHASING A TICKET DOES NOT GUARANTEE SEATING. THIS IS A 21+ SHOW!

Worcester CROP Walk
Registration at 12:30 with walk through Greendale area beginning at 1:00 p.m. The annual Worcester CROP Walk for Hunger is sponsored by local churches in support of Church World Service (CWS). CROP Walks are the oldest fundraising walks in the US. The first CROP Walk (Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty) was in the 1960s. Now more than 2,000 communities across the U.S. join in CROP Hunger Walks each year. A unique aspect of CROP Hunger Walks is that Church World Service doesn't receive all of the money raised. Up to 25% of the money donated is given to local hunger fighting agencies which include food banks and community gardens. Additionally, those sponsoring a walker can specify whether Church World Service or an alternative global hunger-fighting agency will receive the remaining 75% of the donation.

The Tubes

The Tubes will go down in the rock history books as one of the most exciting, in-your-face tight-knit group of musicians who epitomised the hilarity of popular American culture by making it into a the ultimate rock'n'roll extravaganza. Their live shows involved mock bondage rituals, simulated sex, 12-foot high rock stars by the name of Quay Lude singing 'White Punks On Dope', exploding televisions, chainsaws and an array of semi-clad dancers. Some say they were about 15 years ahead of Madonna, and light years ahead of the politically correct. In the tradition of Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart, the Tubes were one of the first bands to write and perform songs in a head-on theatrical onslaught. They simply didn't entertain, they shocked audiences into submission. The Tubes were one of the pioneers of the rock video years before MTV became a household name, and used the medium in their early performances. The band tapped into the American zeitgeist and ridiculed its materialistic values, superficial advertising methods, took a poke at religious fundamentalists and often questioned sexual taboos. They took popular culture by the scruff of the neck, turned it upside down, and made it into entertainment. Their outrageous performance-art concepts ranged from titillating, tongue'n'cheek pornography to straight-laced, black tie all-American conservatism, all of which frequently clouded the fact that they were, like Frank Zappa, technically gifted musicians in their own right. As the band progressed into the 1980's they shed the controversial theatrical spectacle in favour for a more stripped down live setting that showed them in a more musical light, that ultimately brought them long overdue commercial success in America. The nucleus of the band originated in Phoenix, Arizona in the late '60s, where Bill Spooner (guitar), Vince Welnick (keyboards) and Rick Anderson (bass) formed 'The Beans' (alternately billing themselves as the Radar Men from Uranus). The aspiring trio eventually relocated to the post-psychedelic haze of San Francisco in 1972. Once there, the Beans recruited guitarist Roger Steen (guitar) Prairie Prince (drums) from 'The Red, White & Blues Band'. The first real incarnation of 'The Tubes' was born when the original members recruited Michael Cotten (keyboards) and former roadie Fee Waybill (lead vocals). From 1972-1975 the band toured continuously before A&M Records signed them to a major recording contract. Prior to the signing, the band earned devoted cult following on the strength of Spooner's parodic songs and the group's surreal live show extravaganzas which verged on uncensored burlesque that took in everything from rock, pop, heavy metal, country and disco. Word of mouth about the electrifying live experience of the concerts travelled fast, and soon the Tubes earned the reputation as the must-see rock'n'roll band of all time.The concerts featured the ever-versatile Waybill adopting a variety of larger-than-life personas ranging from the crippled Nazi Dr. Strangekiss, country singer Hugh Heifer, and his most infamous character, the legendary Quay Lewd an androgynous drug-inflicted British pop star sporting an outrageous Ziggy Stardust blonde wig and two foot high platform boots. Their debut album 'The Tubes' (1975), produced by Al Kooper, was critically acclaimed, and included the classic tracks 'White Punks On Dope', 'Mondo Bondage', and 'What Do You Want From Life', followed by 'Young And Rich' (1976), which featured the songs 'Don't Touch Me There' and 'Slipped My Disco'. Both albums introduced audiences to some of the most scathing; satirical songs that ridiculed the hypocrisy of white trash America. The erotic fetish themes of 'Mondo Bondage', the naughtiness of 'Don't Touch Me There', the hilarious quiz show parody 'What Do You Want From Life', and the ever-controversial anti-drug anthem 'White Punks On Dope', helped to form an integral part of the band's historic 1977 blockbuster concerts.By the time the band's third album, 'Now' was released, the Tubes met British exile and former promoter of the Isle of Wight Festival, Rikki Farr. A fan of the band, Farr was convinced the UK was ready for the Tubes, and shrewdly persuaded them to tour there and record a live album. One of the band's first concerts in Portsmouth was banned. The concert was held on Poppy Day, and subsequently, the British Legion objected. The Tubes went on to sell out an amazing five-night engagement at the Hammersmith Odeon in London. During the recording of the live concert album, 'What Do You Want From Live', Waybill accidentally broke his leg onstage while acting out his punk character Johnny Bugger; the remainder of the tour was cancelled.After returning to America, they recruited producer Todd Rundgren and recorded what was to be their fourth and final album for A&M; 1979's excellent 'Remote Control', a unique concept album that explored the impact that television and the media had on society. Stand out tracks included 'Turn Me On', 'TV Is King', and 'Prime Time'.By 1981 the Tubes signed to Capitol Records and released the David Foster produced 'Completion Backwards Principle'; an album based on an actual sales training instruction manual. Both 'Talk to Ya Later' and 'Don't Want to Wait Anymore' finally earned them significant airplay on American radio, while the album became the Tubes' first Top 40 chart entry. Two years later, in 1983, due to a provocative video, the single 'She's a Beauty' reached the Top Ten, and pushed the Tubes' sixth studio album, 'Outside/Inside' into the U.S. Top 20. By 1985, the band released their seventh studio album, 'Love Bomb'; the second Tubes album to be produced by Todd Rundgren. 'Love Bomb' scored a minor hit single with 'Piece By Piece', however, later the same year the original Tubes line-up disbanded. Vince Welnick went on to join the Grateful Dead, while Fee Waybill went on to pursue a solo career and dabbled in acting and played the role of Dr. Frank N Furter, the transsexual mad scientist from Transylvania, in the Michigan stage version of 'The Rocky Horror Show'. In 1992, Capital Records released 'The Best of The Tubes' which became a popular seller throughout Europe. The band reunited; consisting of Waybill, Steen, Anderson, Prince recruited new keyboardist Gary Cambra, and due to the popularity of the greatest hits album, embarked on a European tour. Eleven years after the original line-up split, the reunited Tubes released what was to become their eighth studio album, 'Genius Of America'. Four years later, in 2000, the Tubes embarked on an extensive tour of America and Europe to support the release of their second official live album, 'Tubes World Tour 2001'. At their best, The Tubes has the uncanny ability to highlight the absurdity of everyday American life, occasionally shocking audiences along the way, but more importantly, always making them think twice. Perceived by fans and media alike as the 'Marshall McLuhans of rock'n'roll', the Tubes became both the medium and the message, stimulating the senses through their dynamic, controversial and politically incorrect audio visual live spectacles. The Tubes have always managed to expose, enlighten and entertain audiences worldwide by combining art with trash, comedy with tragedy, and innovative rock theatre with consummate musicianship.

Opening Reception of Immerse: New Watercolors by Ali Cavanaugh @ Gold Gallery
Gold Gallery is pleased to announce Immerse, a new collection of watercolors on clayboard by Ali Cavanaugh (American, b. 1973). The grouping represents a departure from her previous project in several capacities. Immerse is an abandonment of the artist's hyper- representational aesthetic and, rather, embraces the fluidity and ungoverned nature of watercolor. In past paintings, her subject were most often teenage women, emulating introverted emotions. Now, her young daughter acts as a muse, embodying opening, honesty and forgiveness--all traits that can likewise be used to characterize the temperament of the collection. Additionally, these significant changes inspired an unfamiliar scope--previous work was exclusively small, intimate and contemplative. Immerse includes large-scale work that is direct or even confronting and meant to envelop the viewer completely. The creation of this collection, aptly named, both required that the artist immerse herself in unexplored process and subject, and in turn holds the audience captive with its imagery. RSVP to

Lou Borelli Octet Plays First Tuesday Jazz
Lou Borelli Octet

Lou Borelli Octet plays mostly original arrangements from the Dave Pell Octet, one of the bands credited with the creation of the West Coast Jazz scene in the 1950s. Shorty Rogers and Marty Paich were the first arrangers to showcase the unique sound of this group. We are honored to play these arrangements as a tribute to Don Fagerquist, a Worcester born trumpet player, who went out to the West Coast to play with the great bands of his time. The band has played at town concerts, Castle Restaurant Jazz on the Patio Summer Series, Ecotarium, Nicks German Restaurant and Bar, Worcester Art Museum, Lucianos, Tower Hill Botanical Garden, Higgins Armory Museum, Hanover Theatre, Tuckerman Hall, Country Clubs and private parties throughout New England. A recent quote about the octet from a music critic describes us very well. "Lou Borelli Octet was performing their Jazz routine for a drinking and dining audience, and if one closed their eyes and tapped into their imagination, they could picture themselves as a guest at one of Jay Gatsby's outdoor parties."...Pat Clark, The Weekend Starts Now, a publication of the Worcester Telegram and Gazette, May 2009. We appreciate your support of live music and especially jazz, which is art for your ears. Our first CD Lou Borelli Octet Live at Nicks is available at our shows, and

Ikebana Show
The Boston Chapter of the Ikebana International Society presents its biennial exhibition of traditional Japanese flower arranging. This event features many educational opportunities to learn about the mechanics and techniques of ikebana.

What is Ikebana?
Recognized as a sculptural form of art, Ikebana, the art of Japanese flower arranging, has over 300 schools of thought. Sogetsu Ikebana is a three-dimensional artistic expression composed of flower and plant material arranged in a container. Sogetsu promotes an Ikebana of no limits, in which plant materials of any type may be used and displayed anywhere and in any circumstance. Sogetsu does not encourage students to emulate nature; they encourage students to use lines, hues, and masses provided by nature to inspire their own creations. Combining the arrangements with two and three dimensional artwork results in stunning, contemporary installations.
