Forejour – A Tribute to Foreigner & Journey:

Town Hall Theatre
3535 School St, Lafayette
Saturday, March 21st, 2015
8:00pm | $25
Forejour (pronounced ‘forger’), pays tribute to the music of 80’s mega bands FOREIGNER & JOURNEY.  The band will take center stage at Lafayette’s Town Hall Theatre on Saturday, March 21, 2015, as part of THT’s concert series to benefit their educational programs for Lamorinda area children.

Forejour’s streak of sold out shows continues with their most recent performances at Marin County’s upscale Fenix Supper Club and Napa’s celebrated City Winery.

The band’s unique blending of two beloved multi-platinum bands keeps audiences on their feet with non-stop hits for their entire show.  Forejour’s set list includes the 20th century’s most down-loaded song, “Don’t Stop Believing”, as well as power ballads such as Foreigner’s “Waiting For A Girl Like You”, and Journey’s “Faithfully”.

Likewise, Town Hall Theatre is a blending of both an unparalleled live performance venue and relaxed atmosphere with a full bar, in its historic building in downtown Lafayette.

For ticket information, contact Town Hall Theatre at www.townhalltheatre.com or 925-283-1557.

Saturday, March 14th, 2015
8:00pm | $25 ($30 @ door)

Brace yourself, Alice Radio’s Scott Capurro returns to Town Hall.

Koran bashing, barebacking – award winning gasper Scott Capurro inches closer toward autoerotic asphyxiation. Scott played Aunt Jack in Mrs. Doubtfire and a rubber head in Star Wars; Phantom Menace. He was left to self-destruct on Rove, which got him banned in Australia. Boo hoo.

Total Edinburgh Fringe sell-out since 1994.

One-day-only Fundraiser for the Tibet Oral History Project, a noble effort of documenting the stories of Tibet.

My dear friend, Dr. Marcy Adamski is creating the only oral history of  Tibet. She is traveling the world, with the encouragement of the Dalai Lama to compile interviews with Tibetan elders before they all pass and this history disappears. The volumes of transcription are destined for the Library of Congress. Thousands of interviews have already been completed. The trip to Nepal is very important for this effort. The elders will not be with us much longer so time is of the essence. Please join us and hear about this project. Make a purchase to help fund the trip. 100% of all purchase of artwork shown for this exclusive engagement on March 14th will be used to travel to Tibet with a film crew and assistants.  Thank you very much for your support. Bring friends!!
