Special Event: Live Broadcast of Congressman John Lewis 11/27 7:00pm

John Lewis is a civil rights leader and an American politician, serving Georgia’s 5th district since 1987. A member of the Democratic party leadership, Lewis has served as Senior Chief Deputy Whip since 2003. Born the son of Alabama sharecroppers, Lewis’s childhood was filled with deeply inspirational moments, including the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the words of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. heard on radio broadcasts. As a college student, Lewis’s inspiration fueled his commitment to end legalized racial segregation; he was chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and was one of the “Big Six” leaders of groups who organized the 1963 March on Washington. His dedication to the highest ethical standards and moral principles has won Lewis the admiration of his colleagues on both sides of the aisle in the United States Congress. Lewis has dedicated his life to protecting human rights, securing civil liberties, and building what he calls “The Beloved Community” in America. Lewis co-wrote his story with his then-Congressional Aid, now Digital Director and Policy Advisor, Andrew Aydin, in the form of the graphic novel trilogy, MARCH (2013). The collaborative work is illustrated by New York Times best-selling graphic novelist Nate Powell.

Join us on Monday, November 27 at 7:00pm, right here on 88.3 WCBN-FM.

Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile

The streets surrounding Royal Oak Music Theater in Detroit should have been empty on the chilly Monday night before Halloween but Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile’s show drew a large enough crowd to pack the sidewalks stretching between the parking structure and the theater.

Kurt Vile, originally from Philadelphia, released Walkin on a Pretty Daze in 2013. That same year, Courtney Barnett, from Melbourne, exploded into the music scene in with her EP How to Carve a Carrot into a Rose. Courtney and Kurt released their first single together “Over Everything” in late August and their album Lotta Sea Lice on October 13th. The album mashes American and Australian singer-songwriter styles and is Kurt’s seventh album and Courtney’s second.

Even though the duo mostly played new songs, the crowd bobbed their heads to them like they were old favorites. When one of the artists played an old favorite like “Dead Fox” or “Pretty Pimpin” the familiar tunes stole the show and turned the audience into a chorus of backup singers. They ended the encore with Courtney Barnett’s “Avant Gardener” whose witty lyrics and beautiful sound reminded us why she became such a sensation here in the States. - MB
