Herculaneum are an experimental jazz group from Chicago that are in town to play Cake Shop and Freddy's. They share a member with Icy Demons. Other members have played with Wilco, Head of Femur, and Archer Prewit (and many others).

The free show calendar got a much needed update last night. That includes all the listings for the recurring production of Hair in Central Park (free, but you have to get tickets).

What else?
