"Downright Hilarious... Staggeringly Brilliant" - Time Out Chicago

The Improvised Shakespeare Company, the funniest and most critically acclaimed theatrical Improv troupe in the country, is coming to LARGO for one night only on October 27th. The ISC plays regularly to sold-out crowds in NYC Off-Broadway, and was recently one of the big hits of UCB’s Del Close marathon where they played to a standing room only crowd of 700+ people. The ISC tours nationally and internationally at Performing Arts Centers and has been featured at Montreal's Just for Laughs, Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival, SF Sketchfest, Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival and most recently at Outside Lands in San Francisco where Sir Patrick Stewart performed with them as a special guest. The ISC has been named Chicago's best Improv group by both the Chicago Reader and the Chicago Examiner and has received a New York Nightlife Award for "Best Comedic Performance by a Group".

Dream Boys


1822 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026


Independent music from the west coast of Scotland has always had a kinship with psychedelic pop music from the west coast of America. Orange Juice loved The Byrds, Teenage Fanclub wanted to be in Buffalo Springfield, the Pastels adored the Electric Prunes. Dream Boys are a modern day trans atlantic love affair realized. Consisting of 3 americans and 1 scotsman, their songs have the spirit of postcard records filtered through the rural haze of the paisley underground. Pure pop with nods to New Zealand’s Flying Nun records and an aura of psychedelia akin to the Church. Their songs float around the notion of time and space, love and heartbreak, the highs and lows with a range of emotion and introspection. One can’t imagine these songs coming from any other band or from any other time other than now.

Live, the band

House of Blues Sunset Strip

West Hollywood, CA 90069


In 1994, the band Live emerged as the preeminent post-grunge musical act. It'd be hard to find a rock fan’s CD collection that didn’t include Live’s massively successful Throwing Copper, an album that sold eight million copies and topped the Billboard Top 200 chart. With the exception of a recent hiatus, the band has been touring since 1990. Beginning with club concerts, the quartet eventually became one of the hottest rock tickets in the mid-1990s. Their minimalist stage show allowed Live to focus on providing a straight-ahead rock experience – with a clean, crisp sound. Lead singer Ed Kowalczyk, who left the band in 2009, delivered lyrics with an extensive vocal range and intense passion. His departure paved the way for current frontman Chris Shinn, who performed with the band on the Summerland Tour 2013 for 35 concert dates throughout the U.S.
