    From left, Jessica Kinzer, Matt Housh and Ryan Henry are The Show, a local indie punk band releasing their debut CD at a concert Saturday, July 30. The show starts at 7 p.m. at the Yellow Springs Arts Council’s Oten Gallery, which is also featuring a collection of Henry’s concert poster art for The Show. They are shown performing at last weekend’s Yellow Springs Experience. (Photo by Megan Bachman)

    “The Show will grow,” the slogan of the Yellow Springs-based three-piece indie band The Show, is prophetic. The band, which dabbles in psychedelic and garage rock while never straying far from its British punk roots, is rapidly becoming a local favorite.

  • A piazza for dance, and community

    Judith Wolert-Maldonado, also known as DJ Juju, is hosting a series of Dance Piazzas this summer at 100 Corry Street. The next Dance Piazza, which takes place at 7 p.m. on July 2, will feature lessons on the bhangra dance of India.

    Bringing people together to dance under an open sky resonates on many levels for Judith Wolert-Maldonado, who’s organized outdoor Dance Piazzas in the village every other Saturday night this summer.
