Katie Pruitt is a Nashville transplant from the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. Pruitt tackles human topics such as religion, mental health, and contemporary love songs with a modern twist. Her passionate delivery and powerful message are the reason her name has graced the bills of festivals such as Americana, 420 Fest, Pilgrimage, and sold out shows across the US and internationally.
After the 2018 release of her live Ourvinyl EP, Pruitt was named NPR's Slingshot Artist for 2019 and was also featured on All Song's Considered for her song "Grace Has A Gun." Not long after that she was chosen as the Luck Reunion Artist on the Rise for SXSW 2019. Pruitt has no plans of slowing down and when she isn't on the road you can find her in the studio writing and recording her debut record.

[From Mischa Pearlman, kerrang.com] Of course, there’s nothing typical about Underøath. Formed in Tampa, Florida almost 25 years ago, the band have changed their style almost as much as they’ve changed line-ups, evolving steadily in that time. The raw, death metal-tinged brutality of 1999’s debut Act Of Depression morphed into the more polished melodic screamo of 2004’s They’re Only Chasing Safety and the metalcore mayhem 2006’s Define The Great Line, and the band continued to mess with the boundaries of those genres as the years went on. After 2010’s brutal seventh album Ø (Disambiguation), there was a brief, two-year hiatus in 2013, before the band finally returned with new music in 2018 with the relatively digestible atmospherics of Erase Me, which welcomed back drummer and clean vocalist Aaron into the fold alongside lead vocalist Spencer Chamberlain.
Whatever direction those albums and line-ups took, however, it was all underpinned by the band’s faith – or, perhaps more accurately, their struggles with it. That remains true on Voyeurist, which ups the ante on the religiosity, both in terms of imagery and sound. Opener Damn Excuses explodes in wrathful fury – a fire sermon straight from the depths of Hell – before being followed by the Enter Shikari-esque textures and incantations of Hallelujah. Elsewhere, I’m Pretty Sure I’m Out Of Luck And Have No Friends starts off tenderly and tentatively before its sinister crawl explodes into a caustic, devilish procession of heavy demonic riffs. That’s continued immediately with Cycle, a brooding surge of intensity that features a verse by Ghostemane, which only adds to harrowing atmosphere.

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
Jones Hall for the Performing Arts
Saturday 2/19/2022 2:00 PM & 7:30 PM
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater grew from a performance in March 1958 at the 92nd Street Y in New York City. Led by Alvin Ailey and a group of young African-American modern dancers, that performance changed forever the perception of American dance.
The Ailey company has gone on to perform for an estimated 25 million people at theaters in 48 states and 71 countries on six continents – as well as millions more through television broadcasts, film screenings, and online platforms.
Today, the Company continues Mr. Ailey's mission by presenting important works of the past and commissioning new ones. In all, more than 235 works by over 90 choreographers have been part of the Ailey company’s repertory.
Before his untimely death in 1989, Alvin Ailey named Judith Jamison as his successor, and over the next 21 years, she brought the Company to unprecedented success. Ms. Jamison, in turn, personally selected Robert Battle to succeed her in 2011, and The New York Times declared he “has injected the company with new life.”
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater gratefully acknowledges The Joan & Sandy Weill Global Ambassador Fund, which provides vital support for Ailey’s national and international tours.

Set in an island paradise during World War II, two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war. Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with a mature French planter, Emile.
Nellie learns that the mother of his children was an island native and, unable to turn her back on the prejudices with which she was raised, refuses Emile’s proposal of marriage. Meanwhile, the strapping Lt. Joe Cable denies himself the fulfillment of a future with an innocent Tonkinese girl with whom he’s fallen in love out of the same fears that haunt Nellie. When Emile is recruited to accompany Joe on a dangerous mission that claims Joe’s life, Nellie realizes that life is too short not to seize her own chance for happiness, thus confronting and conquering her prejudices.
