BG Winterfest ready to rock

Music venues will keep the Winterfest rocking on Saturday night.
Grounds for Thought will host Bob Manley with the drummer Bob Rex band. The group plays regular Sunday night sessions at the Village Idiot in Maumee.
Manley explained recently that the band has been working with a couple younger keyboard players. Kyle Turner will be bringing in his Hammond B3 and Leslie amp. The sound veers toward a funkier, greasier style of jazz, Manley, who plays saxophone and flute.
Also, having Turner on organ frees John Johnson up to switch from bass to guitar, his main instrument, Manley said.
At Howard's Club H, the all-female punk band Kitty Glitter will headline a show. Featured acts will be Mechanical Cat and Fragile X.
At Stone's Throw, Acoustic Penguin, featuring teen fiddle prodigy Grant Flick, will play its distinctive mix of bluegrass and swing.

Leave it to Lionface Productions to rescue "Romeo and Juliet" from years of overwork.
The play is easy to take for granted, The play's tropes have been pop culture fodder. The play itself reduced in public imagination a grand costume drama, a romantic trifle. We all think we know this play.
The great value of what Lionface, and its sister troupe Beautiful Kids Independent Shakespeare Company,  is to strip Shakespeare of the gloss. Though the production values are those of street theater, this makes these plays all the more valuable.
In the Lionface production of "Romeo and Juliet," which opens tonight at 8 and continues with shows through Sunday in the old church at 123 E. Court St.. the love and murders, the sweet talk and vitriol, unfold at an intimate distance.
The actors, under the direction of Ryan Albrecht, have only themselves to rely on to bring the oft-told tale to life.
And they do with vitality and grit, rescuing our star-crossed lovers from freshman English class.
