Margaret Hart Concert Featuring SAMMUS
66 Main St.
$5/students, $15/General Admission
for more information

"She’s as likely to rap about phosphates and integers as she is to name-check Serena Williams or Emmitt Till. Her delivery is piercing, her perspective refreshing." - Pitchfork
Sammus(Enongo Lumumba-Kasongo) is an Ithaca-raised, Philadelphia-based rap artist, producer, and PhD student in the Department of Science & Technology Studies at Cornell University. Known as much for her rousing stage presence as she is for her prowess as a beatmaker and lyricist, Sammus has spent the past several years cultivating a strong following of activists, hip hop heads, punks, and self-identified nerds and geeks, among others.
PLUS: post-performance dance party.
Miss Margaret Hart (1911 - 2004) was the first student of color to graduate from North Adams State Teachers College, now the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA), in 1935. She received a master’s degree at Columbia State Teachers College in New York and an honorary Doctor of Pedagogy from North Adams State Teachers College.
The Margaret Hart concert is annual production of MCLA's Berkshire Cultural Resource Center. Each year, box office proceeds are donated to the Margaret A. Hart Scholarship Fund.

$26 Students + Advance / $33 Day of / $45 Preferred
for more information

Godspeed You! Black Emperor began in Montreal in the early 1990s, and during five years they swelled from a bedroom trio to an earth-rattling, wall-of-sound experience with as many as 14 live musicians. The band’s first batch of records before a nine-year hiatus included 2000’s Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven, which is hailed as a modern post-rock classic. Their newest, Luciferian Towers, offers a transcendent, melodic maturity even as it rumbles through an apocalyptic contemporary landscape.
