Silver Chord Bowl
Four Sundays in February Series 2014 EVENT #1
The Silver Chord Bowl
Sunday February 2nd 2PM John M. Greene Hall
This legendary event is a tradition. People jam the 2000 seat hall. This year we will showcase some of the best collegiate groups in the country including local sensations the Smiffenpoofs from Smith College who are fresh off a visit with the President and first lady. Other local favorites the Northamptones from Northampton High School and the Amherst College Zumbyes with their acrobatic choreography, as well as the Umass Dynamics who always bring their A game will be on hand at this great event!
Joining the SCB lineup from Rochester Institute of Technology, we welcome Eight Beat Measure. Last year they placed third in the Mid Atlantic Semifinal round in the ICCA also capturing the award for best arrangement. This year they sound even stronger!
UPenn Dischord brings an intense energy from Pennsylvania, Northeastern University Pitch Please has been tearing it up, and the Tufts Amalgamates are ready to unite the crowd at John M. Greene in shear harmonic bliss! Mayor David Narkewicz and Smith College President Kathleen McCartney will be on hand as emcees for this classic Northampton event.
Tickets are only available online. Physical tickets will be available at State Street, Cooper's Corner, and Food for Though Book Shop by December 18th.

December 13th – January 7th at UNITE
202 Main St Northampton MA
In conjunction with Northampton's Art's Night Out, on Friday December 13th , UNITE will host a gallery reception for local artist, Ryan Leary from 6-9 pm. Refreshments will be served, and Ryan's work will be on display and for sale until January 7th.
Graduate of Holyoke Community College and Westfield State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. His focus remained primarily in drawing and painting techniques. He believes that it was his experience with clay and pottery that had the greatest impact on his sense and understanding of form and rhythm. This is the first time that Ryan has found success with a full, concise body of work, and he is beyond excited for the chance to put it on display. Here, he will feature a series of chalk & charcoal portraiture of past and present professional wrestlers.
Ryan was initially exposed to the squared circle by his father, Paul at a very early age. While his interest waned for some years, he was back on board by the Attitude Era. He again lost track, but for many years now, has been back on board, and finds himself at the height of his fandom. Perhaps it's the larger than life characters, or just a greater understanding and appreciation of what makes the wrestler (as well as the company he works for). Or maybe it was just the right combination of CM Punk's famous Pipe Bomb, Brandon Stroud's relentless analysis, and his best friend Winston for the motivation the attend nearly a day's worth of live events in the last year.
