CL Critic Kevin C. Madigan Recommends: The 2022 edition of the Atlanta Science Festival will delve into the environment, earth and space, the animal kingdom, the arts, and health and the human body. There will be nature walks, creature encounters, hands-on experiments, and science-themed performances throughout the city during its two-week run. The ninth annual festival wraps up with a party in Piedmont Park dubbed the Exploration Expo. Executive Director Meisa Salaita says the ASF “has become synonymous with engaging and accessible science exploration for all ages, while celebrating diversity and our city as a science hub.” Science lovers from around the world get to experience the events online. “Today science is more relevant than ever,” Salaita says. “And just as science evolves, our festival continues to grow and expand in ways we never thought possible.” — KCM
From the venue:Loaded .38s, space heaters, and big skies. Welcome to the lethal, littered landscape of Jim Heath’s imagination. True to his high evangelical calling, Jim is a Revelator, both revealing and reinterpreting the country-blues-rock roots of American music. He’s a time-travelling space-cowboy on an endless interstellar musical tour, and we are all the richer and “psychobillier” for getting to tag along. REVEREND HORTON HEAT have been the outlet of this creative mind for 29 years, leading to 10 full-length albums, 3 “best-of” collections, 2 DVD releases and thousands of memorable live performances. Never reaching platinum status or having a #1 radio single hasn?t been a problem for the Rev either, the band has continually been a mainstay of late night television and has toured with legendary acts such as Johnny Cash, Motorhead, Marilyn Manson, The Ramones, and many more, all of whom hold the Rev in the highest regard, as a true music industry legend.
