St. Baldrick's is a charity funding research to help to someday find a cure for childhood cancers. The Foundation raises money primarily through head-shaving events. Volunteers get sponsored by friends, family and coworkers to shave their heads in solidarity with children fighting the disease. It’s a really fun and special event, and we are partnering with Floyd's Barbershop, who are coming in to shave heads at the bar. In the 5 years we have participated, we have raised over $100,000, and we are looking forward to another great year! For more information, please go to www.stbaldricks.org/events/happyending2014

A prominent couple in Cape Three Points, Ghana has been murdered. Based on the evidence, it appears the killers were trying to send a message that only Detective Inspector Darko Dawson can cipher. He reluctantly leaves his wife and kids to solve the case on the beautiful shore, and quickly realizes that he's in for more than he bargained for. Three Points has long been inhabited by tribal villages of subsistence fishers, but real estate entrepreneurs and wealthy oil companies have been trying to bribe the tribes to move out. Dawson roots out a host of motives for murder, ranging from personal vendettas to corporate conspiracies.

(ALSO PLAYS MARCH 21) As the singer, guitarist, and main songwriter of Australia's Men at Work, Colin Hay was responsible for penning several of the quirkiest pop hits of the early '80s. Although he and his former band will forever be associated with "the land down under," Hay originally hailed from Scotland, where he was born in the town of Kilwinning on June 29, 1953. Hay relocated to Australia in 1967, by which time he had begun playing guitar and singing. Shortly after joining up with guitarist Ron Strykert in 1978, Hay's master plan was realized, as Men at Work was formed. Rounding out the band was saxophonist/flutist Greg Ham, bassist John Rees, and drummer Jerry Speiser, who in 1982 issued their debut full-length, Business as Usual. Earning quite a few comparisons to then-reigning chart kings the Police, Men at Work quickly became MTV favorites (during the station's early days). Since he was the group's main singer and songwriter, Hay quickly became the focal point of the band, as such humorous videos for "Who Can It Be Now" and "Down Under" pushed the debut album to the top of the U.S. charts -- making Men at Work an overnight sensation. Hay embarked on a solo career, debuting in 1987 with Looking for Jack (the title of which supposedly referred to a brief encounter Hay had with actor Jack Nicholson). Hay continued to release solo material with regularity throughout the '90s, including such titles as 1990's Wayfaring Sons, 1992's Peaks & Valleys, 1994's Topanga, and 1998's Transcendental Highway. The same decade, Hay also launched his own record label, Lazy Eye Records, and sporadically acted in cult movies (which he had began doing the previous decade) and TV shows, including parts on such series as JAG, The Larry Sanders Show, and The Mick Molloy Show, among others. His latest release is titled American Sunshine.
