Big Story
The 9th Planet Out

All That Remains is an American Metalcore band from Springfield, Massachusetts, formed in 1998.[1] They have released nine studio albums, a live CD and DVD, and have sold over a million records worldwide. The group currently consists of vocalist Philip Labonte, rhythm guitarist Mike Martin, former Diecast drummer Jason Costa, bassist Aaron Patrick, and lead guitarist Jason Richardson, with Labonte being the last remaining original member. In spite of this, the band’s line-up had remained consistent from the release of 2008’s Overcome until 2015’s The Order of Things, spanning four albums. This line-up changed, however, in September 2015, when long-time bassist Jeanne Sagan left the band, with Patrick taking her place.

“Waiting for Godot” by Samuel Beckett is a theatrical tour-de-force that requires an audience to question their own understanding of the meaning of existence. It’s the story of two tramps that are waiting for a mysterious Msr. Godot that will deliver unto them the answers to their questionable existence.

Narçisse Theatre Company’s production of Samuel Beckett’s “Waiting for Godot, A Tragicomedy in Two Acts” takes a further look. Artistic Director FL Henley Jr describes this production as “a neo-Marxist, absurdist study of the African-American socio-economic class structure and its relationship to the white supremacy, capitalism, and patriarchy embedded within the founding DNA of American society”.

Narçisse Theatre Company is a community-based, non-profit organization dedicated to uniting the local arts community and developing artists from outside the mainstream. Not only are we committed to showcasing thought-provoking revivals, but half of all of our productions are original plays from Harrisburg playwrights.

The Ol’ Girl (NTC) is currently seeking to make new friends. We are looking sponsors, actors, playwrights, artists, volunteers, donors, and donations. We love Harrisburg and want to do great things here. Come help us create a thing of beauty. Come check us out at www.narcissetheatre.org .

Riding high from their most successful two-and-a-half years together yet, Hands Like Houses return with -Anon., their most determined release to date.

-Anon. takes the unique sound Hands Like Houses have been cultivating over the past 10 years and injects it with a big dose of fresh, modern rock’n’roll. The most charismatic album of their career, their fourth record marries who Hands Like Houses are as individuals into an assured yet fun collection of songs that begs the audience to take a deeper listen.

Recorded at Steakhouse Studios in Hollywood with producer Colin Brittain (5 Seconds of Summer / All Time Low), conceptually “-Anon.” is a statement on the duality of the creative process – the idea that music can be shared or heard in passing and can still resonate with people even when the artist is unknown to the listener..

“I think our strength is in parallel values of art. There’s what we create, and there’s us,” says Frontman Trenton Woodley. “When people know who we are, it adds an extra layer of meaning and significance to the concept, but when they don’t, the song still stands up on its own.”

Like an anonymous poem with no author, it doesn’t matter who created it, as its strength lies in its relatability. -Anon. is Hands Like Houses giving a lyrical voice to other people’s stories and musically creating atmosphere and emotions within the listener to be shared for years to come.

“Separating from my sense of self to create something that could stand on its own was the thought process that planted the seed for ‘-Anon.’s title and concept explains Woodley. “I still take my role as a storyteller seriously, so each day we wrote, we sat down and talked about different people, different experiences, different ideas – then we chose one of those threads and followed it down the rabbit hole.”

“We had the most time off the road since writing our first album” adds guitarist Alex Pearson, “so we didn’t feel restricted or pressured to make the album sound a certain way. We had time to experiment and expand on what did and didn’t define us as a band and create something unique.’

The band felt a freedom of responsibility that allowed each song to have its own atmosphere and story – there’s fatalism and optimism, self-reflection, realism and fantasy, politics and personal journey. In the context of the album, each is its own anonymous piece to relate to – each is built around a shared human experience or perspective.

Born and bred in Canberra, Australia, Hands Like Houses – comprising of Trenton Woodley (vocals), Alexander Pearson (guitar), Joel Tyrrell (bass), Matthew Parkitny (drums) & Matt “Coops” Cooper (guitar) – are one of Australia’s biggest rock exports. The band has sold an impressive 100k+ record sales worldwide, boasts 85 million combined worldwide streams, and embarked on 15 full US and nine UK tours on the books, and three back-to-back sold out headline tours across Australia. Their critically acclaimed third album Dissonants impressively debuted in the Top 10 Billboard Independent Albums, Hard Music Albums, Alternative Albums and Rock Albums charts and #7 on the ARIA Chart (Australia).
During their decade together, the band have spent their time thrilling epic crowds at home, playing packed arenas with Bring Me The Horizon and A Day To Remember, and as one of the headliners on UNIFY 2018. Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, Hands Like Houses have played to tens of thousands of people across Download Festival, Rock on the Range, Carolina Rebellion and Northern Invasion, alongside legendary acts The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Deftones, Alice Cooper and Disturbed.

FRANK IERO AND THE FUTURE VIOLENTS

TUE · JUNE 4, 2019

Doors: 7:00 pm / Show: 8:00 pm

$25.00 – $30.00

FRANK IERO and the PATIENCE are set to release their second album ‘Parachutes’ on 28th October via Vagrant Records. The record was produced by Ross Robinson & Steve Evetts, in California, earlier this year.

“It’s a team that had been on my mind for a while. I heard stories about Ross that scared me to death… but honestly nothing could have prepared me for the reality of what it is like to work with him” says singer Frank Iero. “It was the most heartbreaking yet uplifting, depleting yet inspiring experience I have ever had. I found out things about myself and the songs I was writing that changed me forever. I am so proud of this record, it really took everything I had, and I know I could not have made it with anyone else.”

As with any new album, the band has a chance to grow and evolve into something else, to challenge all perceptions and become a new version of what it once was, and as such comes a name change- FRANK IERO and the PATIENCE. “When I first started this journey I brought a band along that filled in the gaps of what I lacked. I was uncomfortable in my position so I brought a celebration or a cellabration to distract from my awkwardness. Now in my life I need to learn how to slow down and love where I am. I need the patience to appreciate the now.” says Frank Iero.

The album ‘Parachutes’ is 12 songs of controlled chaos which shows FRANK IERO and the PATIENCE at their absolute best.

A message from Frank Iero

“Parachutes are life saving devices. We rely on them to bring us back from the brink of death. Whether we fall or jump they are the only things keeping us alive. Such as with life, we are all just falling or plunging to an eventual end, but the love of my family and my ability to create art and music has always been my parachute.

The act of living can be random and strange, beautiful and ugly at the same time and the only thing that is undeniably certain is eventually we are all gonna hit the ground. Some of us plummet at an incredible rate and it’s over in a flash, but some of us get saved and are able to enjoy the view for a little while….

This album is one of my parachutes. xo frnk.”

$35.00 – $125.00

The rapper Yella Beezy was barely known outside of Dallas just six months ago, but when Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s On the Run II tour came to town in September, they invited the 26-year-old to open for them. That’s thanks to “That’s on Me,” which is both a great single and a prophetic one: “You can snooze if you want to,” Beezy warns, “but not on me, baby.” And sure enough, the week ending September 22nd, almost a year after it originally came out, “That’s on Me” was crowned the Number One record on mainstream rap/R&B radio.
