Founded in England’s emerging punk rock scene in 1977, the Furs developed into a staple on U.S. college and modern rock radio. Led by vocalist and songwriter Richard Butler, the Furs scored hits with “Love My Way,” “Pretty In Pink,” “Heaven,” “The Ghost In You” and “Heartbreak Beat” while releasing seven studio albums, several compilations, a box set, and a live concert DVD. Filmgoers will recognize “Pretty in Pink” from the 1986 film of the same name written by John Hughes. Originally appearing on the group’s 1981 album “Talk Talk Talk,” the band recorded a sax-infused version of the song that appeared in the film’s soundtrack. After a hiatus in the 1990s and a side project called Love Spit Love, the band regrouped in 2000 and tours with the lineup of Butler, his brother Tim Butler (bass), Rich Good (guitar), Mars Williams (saxophone), Amanda Kramer (keyboards) and Paul Garisto (drums). Robyn Hitchcock blends folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism and describes his songs as “paintings you can listen to.” He founded the art-rock band the Soft Boys in 1976, has recorded more than 20 albums, and starred in the 1998 in-concert film “Storefront Hitchcock” recorded in New York and directed by Jonathan Demme.

Turtle Island Quartet 7:30 pm
Turtle Island Quartet @ Marathon Center for the Performing Arts
Apr 20 @ 7:30 pm
The Turtle Island Quartet will bring its brand of improvisational string music to the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday, April 20, at 7:30 p.m. Jazz pianist Cyrus Chestnut will accompany the group as it performs “Jelly, Rags, and Monk,” an interpretation of the music of pioneering jazz pianists Jelly Roll Morton and Thelonious Monk. The quartet is based in the San Francisco Bay Area and has undergone several lineup changes since its 1985 inception. The group comprises David Balakrishnan and Alex Hargreaves on violin; Malcolm Parson on cello; and Benjamin von Gutzeit on viola. The quartet’s co-founder, Darol Anger, came up with the group’s name when he came across “Turtle Island,” a Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Gary Snyder, where it was pointed out that American culture was really an immigrant culture, coming from all points of the globe. “Turtle Island” itself comes from Native American mythology, referring to the continent of North America. This fit the group perfectly, since jazz was at its roots an integration of musical elements brought in from Europe and Africa, later absorbing an influence from Latin America and Asia. The quartet has incorporated several contemporary American music styles into its work, including folk, bluegrass, swing, be-bop, funk, R&B, new age, rock, and hip-hop; as well as music of India, where Balakrishnan’s father was from; and Latin America. Tickets can be purchased at the Marathon Center’s box office at 200 W. Main Cross St., which is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and one hour prior to the show. They are also available by calling the box office at 419-423-2787 or ordering online at www.marathoncenterarts.org with prices ranging from $30-$60.
