Special Agent Stella Lavender is looking forward to an elegant outdoor wedding, a much-needed change of pace from her adrenaline-fueled work as an undercover drug agent. On the grassy lawn of the Rosscairn Castle B&B, she waits with the couple’s family and friends for the ceremony to begin. But one of them has other plans, and as the guests grow restive, the satin-clad bride is dying most horribly. When the sheriff asks for Stella’s assistance, she’s energized by the opportunity to prove herself. But why would someone kill Justine, the bride, on her wedding day?
The festival, honoring military heroes and veterans, features a 5K run/walk (at 7:30 a.m.), military demos, music, activities for children, singing of the national anthem, a presentation of colors and more. For more information, visit www.patriotcharities.org. Free admission
It is 1943--the height of the Second World War. With the men away at the front, Berlin has become a city of women. On the surface, Sigrid Schroder is the model German soldier's wife: She goes to work every day, does as much with her rations as she can, and dutifully cares for her meddling mother-in-law, all the while ignoring the horrific immoralities of the regime.
THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN One of the most intriguing bands in all of metal, the DEP’s explosion of rock is interlaced with frenetic hardcore, prog rock and percussive inflections. The unrelenting noise will repel casual observers, but keen ears will be rewarded with a manic trip laden with shards of sounds. It’s an inventive barrage to be sure, but isn’t that the point when a band of musicians writes and plays music on their own terms, not bending even a millimeter for commercial gain? Over the years they’ve honed the sound and while the musicianship remains precise, even calculated, what ensues is the din of a restless herd of wild horses suddenly let loose out the gates. The freshly released recording, One of Us is the Killer, continues the momentum. $15/$18
