The Capitol Steps provide welcome respite from 24/7 cable news with bipartisan lampoonery of the 2016 presidential campaign. Born at a Senate staff Christmas party, the Capitol Steps have come up from the trenches to attempt to be funnier than Congress. They put the “mock” in democracy with award-winning political musical satire. Over the years, the group has recorded over 34 albums and comprised performers working a total of 18 Congressional offices and representing 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience. Their newest album and live comedy concert celebrates a lame-duck president in a battle of wits with his candidate counterparts. The troupe can be heard twice a year on NPR stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials. www.capsteps.com Cyber Café Knapp Stage Pre-Show Concert 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. CENTERSTAGE SERIES PERFORMANCES These events have two tiers of seating: prime and rear balcony.

If you like tap, you’ll love step. Like tap without shoes, or a band without instruments, stepping is a percussive art form that uses kicks, stomps, claps, and chants – all linked to traditional African dance. Step Afrika! brings a high-energy performance to the stage that proves to be much more than a dance show; they integrate songs, storytelling, humor, and audience participation. www.stepafrika.org Free 30-minute special lecture precedes performance at 6:30 p.m. in Babka Theatre. This engagement is supported, in part, by the William P. Woodward Visiting Artist-in-Residence Endowment.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 12, 2017 - 7:30 P.M. INDIE-FOLK BAND Known for their harmony-laced take on alt-folk, The Hunts are a Chesapeake, Virginia based band of seven siblings who’ve been playing music together almost their entire lives. Twin sisters and five brothers, now ranging in age from 26 down to 17, have played theaters, festivals, and universities around the country – playing diverse instruments like mandolin, piano, ukulele, banjo, and drums. Inspired by shared memories, The Hunts create songs that capture heartache and wonder with a wide-eyed, but wistful elegance. The Hunts’ original songs tap into each member’s unique strengths while remaining intensely collaborative. While getting seven strong-minded siblings to agree on every last note and lyric can sometimes be chaotic, The Hunts insist that the synergy born from that chaos is what makes the band’s music so infectious. www.thehuntsmusic.com Cyber Café Knapp Stage Pre-Show Concert 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. This engagement is supported, in part, by the William P.

First he tries to live with three different neighbors. Then he tries to build a tent so he can live by himself. Then he decides he’ll hide so that his parents will never find him, but that doesn’t work out either. With a little help from his mom and dad, and even his bossy older brothers, they help him to understand that home is “where your family is, where you’re with the people who love you best of all.” www.theatreworksusa.org

FATHER GREGORY BOYLE

As the founder and CEO of Homeboy Industries, Father Gregory Boyle has dedicated his life to helping LA’s most marginalized individuals find a place in society’s ranks. He has become a beacon of hope around the world, and was just selected as one of the White House Champions of Change. Born in 1988, Homeboy Industries has its roots in the poorest community in Los Angeles. As a response to eight warring gangs, entrenched in two public housing projects (the largest grouping of public housing west of the Mississippi), Homeboy Industries grew “from below.” “I buried my first young person killed because of this gang sadness in 1988. I buried my 194th three months ago,” says Father G, as he is affectionately called on the streets. As a nonprofit organization, Homeboy employs and trains hundreds of formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated men and women every year in seven social enterprises; it is the largest gang intervention, rehab, and reentry program in the world.
