A Band Called Death, In the Season of Blood and Gold, Weatherspoon Art Museum, and Robert Ward

A Band Called Death

Triad Arts Weekend: May 2, 2014

This week it’s a full arts spread with opera, literature, sculpture, and a film about a family that helped lay the foundation for punk rock. The documentary “A Band Called Death” has been called “one of the best music documentaries in years,” and today Eddie talks with its co-director Jeff Howlett. Then Bethany Chafin opens the book on the Press 53 short story collection “In The Season of Blood and Gold” with its author Taylor Brown.  Next David Ford takes in the Weatherspoon Art Museum’s exhibition Nancy Rubins: Drawing, Sculpture, Studies with Curator of Exhibitions Xandra Eden, and Weatherspoon Director Nancy Doll. Then we revisit David Ford’s conversation with the late opera composer and former UNCSA chancellor, Dr. Robert Ward.
