Nocturne and more

This Saturday from 6pm to midnight is Nocturne, the annual celebration of art that makes the whole city an installation.

Don't let the rain keep you inside

A quiet but worthy weekend awaits you in between naps:

Da Po Po Theatre started its annual Live-In for the month of October at The Living Room on Agricola. This weekend's show is Two Hours in a Madhouse: An Evening with the Notorious Nellie Bly, the story of the pioneering reporter and feminist, told mostly in her own words. Bl earned international recognition for her gritty exposes and daring escapades--especially her record-breaking solo journey around the globe. $20 regular / $15 artists / $10 students, Fri + Sat
