Lzzy Hale is a phenomenal rock singer. You should see her live, end of story. She also digs one of my artists and gave us a quote on my song “Black Ninja.” Talented and totally cool, she deserves your $$$ and time — look hard for tickets, you won’t regret it.

It’s an afternoon of Tchaikovsky and great set design. Nutcrackers come to life, trees grow — think of it as “Alice in Wonderland” at Christmas. The dancing and choreography will impress in the only full, unabridged nutcracker in the region.
