Oakland duo Zion I - consisting of DJ AmpLive and MC Zumbi - became interested in hip hop during its formation in the late 80s, scribbling lyrics during class and playing around with their family radios and computers after school. In 1991, the duo joined forces with a few other like-minded musicians and formed the group Metufour, but after failing to find huge success, AmpLive and Zumbi broke off to form Zion I, releasing their first single in 1998. With AmpLive's futuristic mix of beats, samples and live instrumentation coupled with Zumbi's political lyrics, the duo's music caught on with an underground hip hop audience. After multiple hyphy musicians remixed the duo's single, Zion I received mainstream attention in the Bay Area. Since then the band has grown its fan base, while still managing to remain true to its underground hip hop roots.

Written by French playwright Yasmina Reza, God of Carnage made its debut in Switzerland in 2006 before coming to London's West End in 2008 for a run that would earn the production an Olivier award and three Tony awards the following year. The story revolves around a schoolyard incident of violence between two children that sparks a meeting between their parents. The ensuing encounter results in a chaotic conversation that touches on subjects of violence, chauvinism, racial anxiety and homophobia. Upper middle-class living is explored in this daring, evocative and hilarious evening of theater, which has enjoyed wild success in both New York and London. Reza's tack-sharp wit and gutsy skill with the pen attribute themselves to this fanged excavation of what lies beneath normative complacency when the gloves are off.
Paul Thorn is an American singer/songwriter who traveled down a unique road before he became a professional musician. Thorn was a boxer for a period of time, but after not winning matches, he took a job working at a furniture factory in Memphis, Tennessee. During his free time, Thorn would play open mic nights at various clubs and cafes around the Memphis region. It was at one of these events when he was discovered and offered a recording contract with A&M Records. Thorn's debut album, Hammer and Nail, was released in 1997 and although his blues tinged Americana singer/songwriter material didn't manage to entice listeners to buy his first album, as he continued to write songs and spend time on the road, honing his craft, it would take time, but Thorn would ultimately find a fairly decent fan base.
