Embarking on our 6th Season!

We kick off with Aquabear Live @ARTS/West, 9/9/11, 8:00 pm with Moon High and Time and Temperature both from Columbus. (probably one more TBA too). $4 at door.

Moon High: Moon High began in 2007 as a home recording project between two like-minded Ohio musicians. Their auspicious self-titled debut was released the following year and prompted the duo to recruit additional members to adapt their multi-layered sounds on stage. After a couple years of member changes, ongoing praise, and honing their live performance, Moon High has evolved into a tight-knit quartet determined to play their own brand of melodious folk tunes.

In 2010, Moon High released 'Smoke Before My Eyes,' a limited run 7" that epitomizes their sound. Moon High has since embarked on the completion of their long-anticipated, full-length sophomore album. 'Six Suns,' released in July 2011, is bookended with the band's more elegant instrumental pieces
Link and dances between up tempo, country-tinged pop songs, dreamy laments, and moments of near rock-and-roll. In the years since their debut release, Moon High has emerged sounding more confident and at home in their songcraft; 'Six Suns' shows the band coming into it's own, reveling in what's been uncovered along the

Brick Monkey Theater Ensemble presents Defiant 9/11/11 at 2:00pm

Brick Monkey Theater Ensemble, Southeast Ohio's professional theater company, will lead a community response to mark the ten year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Company members will present a reading of George Brant's play Defiant on Sunday, September 11, 2011, at 2pm at ARTS/West in Athens, OH. It will be followed by a facilitated talk-back session where we want to hear from the community: where are we as a country ten years later?

Defiant tells the story of Ann Martin, a woman who incurs the wrath of a grieving country when she refuses to memorialize her husband following his death in a national tragedy. This play asks difficult questions about what it means to grieve, what it means to be a patriot, and how a decision to not honor the dead can be seen as treasonous.

Join us for what promises to be an exhilarating afternoon of theater and discussion.

WHAT: Brick Monkey Theater Ensemble's reading of Defiant by George Brant

WHEN: Sunday, September 11, 2011, at 2pm

WHERE: ARTS/West, 132 W. State Street, Athens, OH
