|| A Special Musical Evening With The Youngest At The Refuge
Jamestown, CA...The Refuge in Jamestown is having a new band play on February 28th.The Youngest frontman, Andrew Taetz, and Austin-based Jackie Myers, featuring a set of originals by Jackie. We hope you can join us for this very special acoustic evening!
Frontman Andrew Taetz identifies the album "See it Through's" inspiration as “half relationships and half society.” Neither saccharine nor cynical, "See It Through" offers music for a generation hesitant about their country’s future, but prepared to accept the mantle. And much like the album’s lead single, this band seems built to last.
See It Through’s frenetic lyricism offers a reflection on both the current civil zeitgeist and modern youth’s reaction to it.... the tracks drift from upbeat Americana to wistful folk to guitar-driven blues.

Directed by Don Bilotti. Starring Matthew Hobgood. “Sometimes I think my head is so big because it is so full of dreams.” These are the words of John Merrick, the ‘Elephant Man’, the horrific side-show freak, the mal-formed monster of a man who revealed what it is to be human, what it means to be humane. This play is a powerful, passionate, uplifting story that traces the story of Merrick who is plucked from a life of abject misery and studied as a ‘science project’ by physician Frederick Treves. Merrick becomes a favorite of the media and the aristocracy. They are baffled, amazed and amused that something so disgusting in appearance can contain such beauty, brilliance, humor and courage.
But Merrick is doomed, not just from a body that betrayed him before birth, but from a society that can only see him as something non-human, alien, a performing animal, the side-show freak - tolerated but never accepted. Through Pomerance’s play, Merrick’s life and death , though wracked with pain and loneliness, gives the world a tremendous gift – the gift of compassion, the gift of seeing beyond the differences between peoples, the gift of seeing the humanity that unites us all.
