On July 4th, 2013, Under the Radar will host its first-ever music festival. It’s called Escape to the Lake and it’s got more than a little of the Hutchmoot vibe to it, so we sat down with UTR’s founder, Dave Trout, and talked with him about the genesis of both the UTR radio show and the Escape to the Lake weekend.
One of our favorite records of the past year is Matthew Perryman Jones’ Land of the Living, produced by Cason Cooley. (If you saw the Behold the Lamb of God tour last year you may remember Matthew as one of the special guests.) If you haven’t listened his new record, go with great haste and do so. If you’ve already fallen in love with it, enjoy this short making-of film. If you’re still on the fence, this might be just the push you need.
John Cleese is one of the funniest men on earth. Not only does he have a fantastically silly walk, he’s also got great stuff to say about the work of creativity. You should listen to him. The following is an excerpt from a talk he gave in (or around) 1991.
We wanted to let you all know about two things regarding Andrew Peterson’s latest album, Light for the Lost Boy.
1) Andrew is currently giving away The Lost Boy Sampler, which includes 11 tracks: five songs from the album, plus a B-side called “Break It All the Way,” as well as 5 acoustic tracks from the exclusive Lost Boy Demos. If you don’t own the full album, this sampler is a great way to get acquainted with it, and it’s a great way to let your friends know about Andrew’s music. Spread the word far and wide, if you’re so inclined. Click here.
2) This Thursday at 8:20 p.m. CST, Andrew is broadcasting one of the final performances of The Lost Boy Tour, with stellar musicians and great friends CALEB the Band and Ben Shive. It’s only $5, and you and your friends and family can gather around a TV or computer and listen to these songs performed together live for one of the last times. We hope you’ll join us.
Thanks for reading!
At Hutchmoot 2012 Andrew Peterson and Travis Prinzi led a session titled “Tales of the Fall.” Here in part one, Travis discusses the ways in which our fallen world is reflected in the literature we read.
(Part 2) At Hutchmoot 2012 we invited Greg Greene and Wes driver, the creative team behind Nashville’s Blackbird Theater Company, as well as Broadway actor Stephen Trafton, who has appeared in shows such as Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera, to discuss the many ways in which faith and theater interact to provide a deep and meaningful experience.

When Jarrett J. Krosoczka was a kid, he didn’t play sports, but he loved art. He paints the funny and touching story of a little boy who pursued a simple passion: to draw and write stories. Watch the video. It’s well worth your time.
Randall Goodgame has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the production of the fourth Slugs & Bugs album. This time around the album will include 20 songs taken straight out of scripture, and it will feature specials guests like Sally Lloyd-Jones and the African Children’s Choir, as well as a passel of others. Check out the video and visit the Kickstarter page for all the details.
Randall Goodgame has a new Slugs and Bugs record in the works and it’s going in a whole new direction. We sat down with him to hear what he had to say, and before we knew what was happening, Buddy Greene walked in the door and kicked up a hootenanny.
