"The Straight Line" A Play
Friday May 1 & Saturday May 2, 2009 8pm
Presented by Image Theatre
$18 tickets online, $20 at the door, Upstairs at The Old Court
Rick and Jim, two disaffected 50 year old men from Boston, seek to spice up their life by drawing a “straight line” across America and just… going. All hell breaks loose when their car breaks down outside a diner in Ogallalah, Nebraska, and they become intertwined with the lives of the locals. Beer, romance, and gunfights in this “Coen Brothers- like” take on the loss of the American Dream.

Hot Day at the Zoo
Friday May 1, 2009 10pm
$10 Cover at Gemstone's above Blue Shamrock
"Friday night local favorites Hot Day at the Zoo christen Gemstones, Lowell's newest music venue on Market Street above the Blue Shamrock. With a growing legion of fans, HDATZ continue to impress audiences up and down the east coast. Last month they played Johnny D's in Somerville nearly bringing down the house with their foot stomping, dance inducing rhythms and high octane live show." Excerpt by Peter Lavender on Audio Floss
