Augustana achieved piano-rock fame first in 2005, when their album "All the Stars and Boulevards" reached number one on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart. The first single "Boston" -- with its dramatic melodies and soaring chorus -- was used in episodes of "The Big Bang Theory", "Scrubs" and "One Tree Hill", which was followed by tours with artists such as Switchfoot, Maroon 5, Counting Crows, Dashboard Confessional, Snow Patrol and Goo Goo Dolls. The Nashville-via-Southern California band broke up in 2011, but frontman Dan Layus has kept the name alive, recording a new crop of lovelorn songs, which were released in April on the album "Life Imitating Life". See the band that's been called "the heartland equivalent of Coldplay and Keane" when they come to Atlanta this fall. [less-]

When "It's a Wonderful Life" was first released, movies often also were adapted as radio plays and performed for a live studio audience. That tradition continues today, as five actors play the parts of all the characters in this adaptation of the holiday classic, which is set as a broadcast in the 1940s. With the help of only a sound-effects artist, the ensemble re-enacts the story of George Bailey, a young man whose dreams of traveling the world are thwarted by his sense of responsibility to the family business. Down on his luck, Bailey, compassionate yet disheartened, is at the end of his rope. He questions his purpose in life and considers ending it all. Just then, an angel arrives to show Bailey how the lives of those he loves would be affected if he were not around. The story's message is profound and remains relevant for today's audiences. [less-]
