8:00pm An Evening with Mark Russell $45.00 $30.00
  Long before Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert, there was Mark Russell daring to joke and sing of the often absurd political process.  He started in a little piano bar on Capitol Hill-right across from the lawmakers themselves.  As he puts it, "I started at the bottom and managed to work my way down."  He began knowing little about politics, but was an immediate hit because he could find humor in anything.  Ticket & Dinner $70.00).

8:00pm Delbert McClinton
Sponsored by Parr Computing
Limited Seating call box office
  After more than four decades of making music, McClinton is breathing freely with the confidence and energy of an artist who knows that he has mastered his game.  Still basking in the glow of a new Grammy Award, he has followed up what "The Wall Street Journal" declared his "best recording ever" - 2001s "Nothing Personal" - with a set that displays even greater muscle, smarts, charm and soul.  Delbert's new album "Room To Breathe" handily backs the contention that even after enjoying the best year of his long career, McClinton is now poised to triumph further.  From the swampy and rollicking opening strains of "Same Kinda Crazy" to the jump blues visit to "New York City," "Room To Breathe" plays like the night of your life in God's own roadhouse.
