55e61c46dacf2054302976Heywood Banks, 27th Anniversary Performance takes place this Saturday, January 14. You've heard him on the Bob & Tom Show...now here's your chance to see him live at the Long Center for the Performing Arts! Heywood Banks is simply one-of-a-kind, almost impossible to describe, with a style his very own. Equal parts genius and buffoon, this songwriter-comic-singer-poet-musician has become a cult hero and a pop icon, with a show that appeals to college students, businessmen, yuppies, rednecks, punks, kids or your grandmother. Heywood intersperses his humorous observations of life with twisted, inventive, bizarre songs, sung and played in a variety of styles, from folk, to country to rock to pop, and way beyond. Come laugh until it hurts. Please note: Wacky Heywood costumes welcomed!

More artistic events abound this weekend! On Sunday, January 15, enjoy the beauty of music at the Tippecanoe Chamber Music Society (TCMS) Concert at Purdue's Fowler Hall. Celebrate the vision & artistry of the TCMS Founders. TCMS is 20 years old and they are celebrating the two people who founded the organization, Greg Kostraba and Konstantin Jakimow. Greg, Konstantin and the Sylvan Trio will perform music by Schumann, Martinu and Muczynski.
