October 4   THE DECEMBERISTS w/MARISSA NADLER
MASS MoCA
1040 MASS MoCA Way
- North Adams, MA

The Decemberists explore a new sound in a MASS MoCA performance on Thursday, October 4 — in support of their eighth studio album I’ll Be Your Girl, which will be released on March 16 on Capitol Records. The acclaimed Portland, Oregon-based band worked with producer John Congleton on the new record (St. Vincent, Lana Del Rey) and embraced influences such as Roxy Music and New Order to spark a new creative path.
“When you’ve been a band for 17 years, inevitably there are habits you fall into,” says Colin Meloy. “So our ambition this time was really just to get out of our comfort zone. That’s what prompted working with a different producer and using a different studio. We wanted to free ourselves from old patterns and give ourselves permission to try something different.”
With I’ll Be Your Girl, the Decemberists—lead vocalist and guitarist Meloy, guitarist Chris Funk, keyboardist Jenny Conlee, bassist Nate Query, and drummer John Moen—explore new approaches to making music and broaden their sonic range. Previous Decemberists’ records, such as The Hazards of Love or The Crane Wife, have been structured around thematic or musical concepts, though Meloy maintains that ultimately it’s always “our frame of mind that ties them together.” This time, he says, the songs share a mood that’s steeped in our current times and condition— “exuberant nihilism, an apocalyptic dance party was what we envisioned.”

October 6   GREAT BARRINGTON ARTS MARKET
Downtown Great Barrington Alongside The Great Barrington Farmer's Market
18 Church Street
- Great Barrington, MA (413) 429-6830

A curated outdoor market featuring local and regional handmade gifts and products. Announcing the opening of the 6th annual Great Barrington Arts Market (GBAM) alongside the Great Barrington Farmer’s Market and their new expanded season that runs from Memorial Day weekend through Columbus Day weekend. Every Saturday from 9 -1, GBAM offers visitors the opportunity to buy unique art and craft made by local artisans in a variety of media and price ranges. Great Barrington Arts Market is on 18 Church Street, just outside the Great Barrington Farmer’s Market. The Farmers Market is celebrating 28 years, with 36 local vendors from across Berkshire County, live music, ready to eat food and community events.
GBAM seeks to bring local artists directly to market with potential customers and adds another exciting destination to Great Barrington’s already vibrant Saturday mornings. Our new location makes it even easier and more convenient to enjoy shopping for local gifts.
Market founders Kathyn Burkle and Molly de St André are both artists (of KathrynBee Designs and Moho Designs/Petit Pilou) who loved the idea of helping connect other local craftspeople with a viable market opportunity and wanted to see Great Barrington’s outdoor Saturday market expand. They believe that the Farmer’s Market shopper recognizes how important it is to support the local economy and that a venue for artists to sell their work directly to the community is an obvious sister market for the Farmer’s Market. In a community where so many residents believe in the importance of keeping dollars local, GBAM and GBFM offer locals and tourists another fun and interesting weekend activity and is quickly becoming a summer Saturday tradition.
The Market will be held every Saturday, May 26 through October 6, and will feature 10 local artists each week including Petit Pilou, JK Custom Furniture and Design, Berkshire Four Poster, Ben Evans, The Peach Tree Jewelry, Aubry Woodworks, KathrynBee Designs and many others in media including ceramics, jewelry, textile/clothing design, woodworking, painting, printmaking and fiber arts.

MASS MoCA
1040 MASS MoCA Way
- North Adams, MA 
(413) 662-2111
Members get first dibs to Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
These days, he calls himself Bonnie 'Prince' Billy. You might recognize him as Palace Brothers, or Will Oldham, or for the song of his that Johnny Cash covered. An enigma of the folk-rock world — The New Yorker calls him "one of the country's most celebrated singer-songwriters" despite the fact that he's never signed with a label — Bonnie 'Prince' Billy is hard to find, easy to love, and impossible to dismiss (even if it's been years since anyone's had the chance to see him). Call him a DIY folkster with vintage vibes, country cred, and a voice rich as death. Singing about bottomless heartache and cowboy philosophy, he's here at MASS MoCA for an intimate and uncensored show this fall.

Tickets are on sale for MASS MoCA members at 12pm today. The general public can purchase tickets beginning Friday at 10am. If you're not yet a member, join today. We announce another big show next week, and, as usual, members get first dibs on tickets and never pay ticketing fees.

Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center
14 Castle Street
- Great Barrington, MA 
(413) 528-0100
Chichester Festival Theatre's production received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers to the West End for a limited season. Jonathan Munby directs this contemporary retelling of Shakespeare's tender, violent, moving and shocking play.

Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.

Eastover Estate & Retreat Center
430 East Street
- Lenox, MA (866) 264-5139

Magnetic-Harmonic Vibrational Therapist, Jay Emmanuel, A.K., N.S.,V.M. shares powerful energy techniques that use the forces of sounds produced by the human voice in combination with Himalayan and Crystal Singing Bowls to activate the body’s natural self-healing response. Utilizing specific sounds and frequencies of vibrations together with “Parthonic Energy” and “Mind Energy in Action”, he helps re-establish the proper harmonic tones and frequencies within the subtle energy fields of the body - the Chakras, Etheric body, Auric energy field, and the physical body.

Jay believes everyone has a force within that can activate their “Natural Pharmacy”. This inner macrocosmic force, encoded in our DNA archives, can bring upon regeneration and the natural healing process of the entire biophysical, mental, energetic/etheric body. He is a Pranic Energy Therapist, Yoga, Qigong, Tai Chi and Reiki Practitoner as well. His book - The Healing Forces of Harmonic Sounds & Vibrations is available on Amazon.

October 19   HORMONES, HEALTH AND LOVE: HELPING COUPLES REMAIN INTIMATE IN MID-LIFE AND BEYOND
Berkshire Community College
1350 West Street, K213H
- Pittsfield, MA (413) 236-4500

Speaker: Evelyn Resh, CNM, MPH, CSC, MSN
Location: BCC, 1350 West Street, Pittsfield
Date: Friday, October 19, 2018 / 8:30 – 12:15 p.m.
Fees: $45.00 per person / $45.00 per CEU

Hormonal changes, health issues, and satisfying intimate relationships challenge all long-term couples at some point. However, mid-life is often the starting point, especially, when we consider the sweeping changes brought on by menopause. In addition, “Manopause” can impact individuals and couples as well as is poorly defined, considered, or even mentioned by clients, couples, or other health care providers.

This workshop is designed for mental health practitioners and others who counsel same and/or opposite sex couples who are in mid-life and beyond. The focus will be two-fold; first, to define the most common physiologic changes and challenges faced by men and women in their 50’s, 60’s and early 70’s and second, how these health challenges commonly effect individuals and couples as their contact with the dependence on health care systems and providers increases.

Special attention will be paid to how shifts in health status and treatments for morbid conditions can and do affect self-image and sexual intimacy. Emphasis will be paid on how to help clients adopt health-seeking behaviors that will facilitate a greater sense of empowerment versus infirmity in their intimate relationships as they age, feel more liberated to adopt new and appropriate expectations for sexual satisfaction, and increase their literacy regarding sexuality and aging.
