Pokey LaFarge is a man who marches to his own beat. Mixing Rockabilly rhythms, the tradition of French chanson singers, and a dash of ragtime, Pokey’s unique brand of blues stuns audiences with an eclectic musical sensibility. This timelessness has been one of Pokey’s calling cards since his first album, the self-released Marmalade in 2006, up until his most recent album, 2020’s critically acclaimed Rock Bottom Rhapsody. His composition Red's Theater of the Absurd, which was featured in Gore Verbinski’s 2013 movie Lone Ranger, perfectly embodies Pokey’s talent for combining French tradition with his signature bouncing rhythms and modern perspective.
Join Arts Commons Presents and the PCL Blues series for an evening of rollicking good fun – live and in-person – with Pokey LaFarge.
“In LaFarge’s wonderfully poetic style, he spills out his own story of drugs and drink across a vintage sound that is equal parts jazz, blues, swing and an always-evolving umbrella of Americana.” - Glide Magazine

Completed in 1994 the Engineered Air Theatre carries on the tradition of having a theatre located in its exact location for over 100 years, even incorporating rescued decorative elements from the old Empress Theatre into both its theatre and lobby design. In the summer of 2016, the Engineered Air had a face lift with the comfier chairs and updated décor.
