It’s not just great song writing, warm guitars, a nut-tight rhythm section, and the occasional blues harp riffs that make The Stone Foxes’ second album, Bears & Bulls, so good; the Bay Area four-piece consisting of brothers Shannon and Spence Koehler, Aaron Mort, and Avi Vinocur have captured something else on this recording that makes the whole thing huge, and very, very cool.

KUNST-STOFF & LEVYdance World Premiere

Greek shadow theater and postmodern dance

Sunday, October 24 – 8pm ($18)

For this world premiere, renowned choreographer Yannis Adoniou draws inspiration for Greek Rebetiko music, a genre similar to the blues and Fado as it was born out of sorrow, desire and the yearnings of oppressed people seeking to adjust to a new life in a new country. Using elements of Greek folk and postmodern dance, darkness and song, Adoniou, vocalist Catherine Clambaneva and shadow theater artist Leonidas Kassapides excavate their homeland’s history to create a work that captivates the senses, set to an original score by acclaimed Greek film composer Minos Matsas.

Mission accomplished. “TeleVision” is our continuing tradition of filming the top telemark skiers (free heel skiing) in the world playing in untracked powder mixed with big lines, humor, flight time, spills, and all the required deep face shots of a good ski porn.
