Crime of Dispassion The Devil in the Details November 20, 2007 | 08:23 AM Robberies often go wrong but the jewelry store heist at the center of Before the Devil Knows You're Dead is about as bad as bad gets. The robber expects an easy time with the old woman behind the counter, never imagining she'd pull a gun and shoot, sending him through the glass front door to die on the pavement among the sh...

Tonight @ Cathedral Square Park - 6:30 p.m.

If you like your blues music as unfiltered as a strong, menthol cigarette, then chances are Reverend Raven and the Chain Smokin’ Altar Boys will be right up your ally.
