The Shook Twins dropped by to play a new tune and an oldie but goodie before their gig at the Temporary. We started things off with their new single, which they dropped a month ago, called Stay Wild. And then they played a new tune live called What Is Blue, followed by the oldie, Window. We ended things with a favorite from their 2014 CD What We Do, Shake.
The Venerable Gyalten Samten stars in a film that explores the themes of illegal immigration and women's empowerment called Surkhaab. A former Bollywood actress turned Buddhist nun, she appeared on Beyond Beyond to talk about her film and its screening at the Crystal Theater. John Bruna, of the Way of Compassion Foundation, describes the Compassion Festival coming to Carbondale in August, which benefits from the screening of Surkhaab tonight.
