Hitchcock & Tunes on the Rocks

>>Readers, advertisers and friends of all sorts,

As the stale breath of fall inundates the Ohio River Valley, the volume and scale of events this month will turn the thermostat in the opposite direction. October, whose root oct harkens back to the Roman Calendar as it was the eighth month, is an exciting time in the tri-state area. Resident puck-heads rejoice as the Evansville Icemen kick-off their new season, and on the opposite end of the spectrum, resident fans of orchestral tunes nod with calculated claps in celebration of the new Evansville Philharmonic season. Some get their kicks from the bashing of hockey helmets and others the smashing of clash cymbals, some enjoy both. The incongruence of the two seasons paints a vivid portrait of how diverse the interests and people of our area are, but also brings us together in appreciation of an unforeseen rush of energy. Of course, this month is always for the fright-freaks out there, and this October is no different. It is complete with a guide for Halloweenoriented events (including those appropriate for the little ones), a break-down of the bluesy, spook-fest of a musical The Ghost Brothers of Darkland County and an in-depth look into the new Psycho theme of the Olde Courthouse Catacombs and House of Lecter. There is plenty to sate your appetite for scares and your thirst for thrills.

As a welcome precursor to the darkness of Samhain (Gaelic Harvest Festival that falls on Halloween), the Bob & Tom Comedy Tour rolls into town to illuminate faces with resplendent smiles boasting comedians such as Donnie Baker, Drew Hastings and Tim Bedore. In this, the month of National Squirrel Awareness, music fans will find there is a sweet feast of tunes. Don Williams and 1964…The Tribute at the Victory, Rascal Flatts with the Band Perry at the Ford Center and Merle Haggard at the Centre. All of this and more, plus a surprise or two, wait for you inside this issue!
