Diamond heists, double crosses and undercover cops are the name of the game in this fast-talking, macho crime caper. Put on a super snazzy all-black suit, stop referring to yourself by your real name and prepare to super-slo-mo-cool-as-fuck walk yourself with at least four of your friends to the Alamo Drafthouse because we're setting you up with one of the slickest, coolest movies to blast out of the '90s. Stop pointing that gun at my dad and come learn the relative importance of tipping, who starred in Get Christie Love!, and what to do when you enter a men's room full of cops carrying a briefcase full of marijuana.

While it’s common to find a play within a play (see anything from Hamlet to The Drowsy Chaperone), the Overtime’s latest spins that technique by presenting a theater within a theater. Penned by Iran-born playwright William Mohammad Razavi, the “comedy about love, theater and the magic of both” plays out backstage at the Oglethorpe during a stormy performance of Egg Fear. Starring combative actors Delilah Small and Antonio Valencia, the unseen production unfolds in a backstage area shared by an agent, a magician, an understudy, a delivery guy and a white rabbit.

Straight from San Antonio, Mitch Webb has pulled together the finest the Alamo city has to offer in his latest cd “The Lonely Kind.” Along with award winning player Joe Reyes and producer Ronnie Morales, the Lonely Kid did exceptionally well on the radio in 2008 spending 9 weeks on the Top 40 cart for the Americana Music Associations. You can be guaranteed a great performance every time and with four cds under his belt, there is no doubt that this artist is a gifted songwriter.
One doesn’t usually associate Americana singer-songwriters with being gear nerds, but Austin Forrest can spar with the gnarliest of roadies. Using a looping pedal, Forrest lays down the rhythm section on the bongo and cajón, the song’s bones on the rhythm guitar, then shreds lead on top. Forrest loops three part harmonies to complement his tunes, challenging the role of the barside/restaurant patio crooner.
