There are a bunch of great events coming up over the next two months at Auburn Public Theater. From concerts, to film screenings, and even well known stand-up comics, APT has it all. It’s also quite affordable as you’ll find out. Here’s everything you need to know. Events are sorted by date and all are worth your time.
1/12 – Stand-Up Comedy – Godfrey:
Hilarious, Chicago-born comedian at the top of his game. He’s touring all over the US and is no stranger to comedy festivals as well. You may have seen him on FX’s Louie, Zoolander, 30 Rock and more. His comedy is fearless, ranging from political to observational comedy, and much more. His Obama impression is incredible. It’s tough to nail down his style–just know that you’ll laugh the night away at this one. Back in August his one-hour special entitled Black By Accident aired on Comedy Central. It’s a really amazing glimpse into this comic genius’ mind. Saturday, January 12th at 8:00 p.m. BUY TICKETS! $12
1/25 – Concert – The Kennedys:
New York-based guitar duo Maura and Pete Kennedy bring their signature, hook-driven pop sound to APT. The music is based in acoustic guitar tradition, borrowing from power pop, Impressionist composers, country, folk, and more. Maura’s voice is a soothing combination of soul and subtlety, with a quiet but demanding presence. Acoustic guitar rhythms tie it all together, creating an almost 1960s pop sound. They’re vaguely reminiscent of legendary pop band The Byrds. Friday, January 25 at 8:00 p.m. BUY TICKETS! $20
2/9 – Stand Up Comedy – Erin Jackson:
Stand up comedian from Washington, DC who’s quickly making a name for herself. Her conversational style has propelled her from various East Coast comedy clubs to Comedy Central, Last Comic Standing where she was a semifinalist–and most recently–The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Erin Jackson is currently performing in venues across the country and APT was lucky enough to get her booked. Saturday, February 9th at 8:00 p.m. BUY TICKETS! $12
2/24 – Concert – Folk legend Bruce Cockburn:
Rounding out Auburn Public Theater’s next two months is legendary Canadian folk musician Bruce Cockburn. In one of the longest music careers, Cockburn has 25 studio albums, a number of live recordings, and compilations. His 1970 self-titled album is perhaps one of the most iconic folk recordings of all time, featuring songs like “Going to the Country” and “Musical Friends”. The album has aged extremely well and still sounds great today. As one of the most prolific 1970s folk singer/songwriters, it seems Cockburn took very few days off and remained a hit-maker right through the 1990s. Sunday, February 24th at 7:30 p.m. BUY TICKETS! $35
