The Remedy For Missing Monty On Stage
With “Spamalot” gone from the DCPA, finding Monty Python entertainment is a little tricky. Thankfully the CU International Film Series is around to provide us with the next best thing: “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” The film that inspired more historical parodies than any other in history, such as “Spamalot,” the “Holy Grail” has indeed become a religiously important artifact in and of itself. Nov. 14 at 7 and 9 p.m. at CU’s Muenzinger Auditorium. Call 303.492.1531.
CU With Legends
It’s nearly impossible to overstate the importance of the Blue Note label to the Jazz world. Founded in the 1930s, the label not only became the single most important repository of jazz figures in history. Miles Davis and John Coltrane, for example. See four of Blue Note’s newer faces during the free CU in Broomfield series. Nov. 7 at 7:30 p.m. at Broomfield Auditorium. Call 303.460.6800.
After You’re Stuffed
When you get this issue, it may still be a bit early for you to be decorating with tinsel, but after the turkey’s settled, you might be looking for a night out with holiday flavor. A dash of nutmeg in your proverbial egg nog, so to speak. Nissi’s has just the thing:
A White Christmas Holiday, featuring a quartet of talented singers. Nov. 25 at 7:30 p.m. at Nissi’s in Lafayette. Call 303-665-2757.
Who Wouldn’t Name A Kid Banjo?
What do you say about a guy so immersed in his craft that he named his daughter Banjo (other than to wonder aloud about the kind of woman who would allow him to get away it)? The California-born, Australian-bred folk-blues artist hasn’t blown up in the States as much as contemporaries like Dave Matthews, but it’s not for a lack of talent that John Butler remains an also-ran. Nov. 23 at 8 p.m. at Ogden Theater. Call 303.830.2525 for more information.
