Submitted by Kiki Turner on Tue, 01/29/2013 - 10:42am

Denver-based artists Frederic Pichon and Andrew Rising will simultaneously present their two very distinct exhibits in one gallery, creating a unique contrast between their mediums. While Pichon’s paintings examine the role of geometric technique in their architectural settings, Rising explores outer space with his multi-channel video installation, “Nadir.” Paired together, this exhibit will examine the complexity of shape and structure, both on Earth and in the skies above. Thu noon-5 p.m.; Fri noon-9 p.m.; Sat noon-5 p.m.; Sun 1-4 p.m.

Tumble into Myra Babbage’s world as a typist, muse and collaborator for Franklin Woolsey—a man desperately trying to finish his book. After his sudden death, Babbage insists she still hears Woolsey dictating his novel to her. So she continues to write. Overflowing with questions, this play digs around for answers but, like any good page-turner, may leave a few enticing cliffhangers. 10 and up. Thu-Sat 7:30 p.m.; Sun 4 p.m.

This year marks 20 years in the music business for this old school hip-hop group, but that doesn’t mean they are traditional. Instead, the Los Angeles-based ensemble prefers a more alternative sound, akin to groups like the Roots and A Tribe Called Quest. Listen for tracks from their newest album, Humboldt Beginnings, as well as past hits like “Drop” and “Passin’ By Me.” Thu 9 p.m.
