the Highlights...

October 18th

Jon Stewart

The quintessence of Generation X, Jon Stewart has been performing stand-up comedy for years now. His career in entertainment began by performing stand-up in various comedy clubs throughout New York City, he then landed a place on TV when he became the host of Comedy Central's Short Attention Span Theater. Shortly thereafter, Stewart moved to MTV, hosting the show You Wrote It, You Watch It, then receiving his own show in 1993, The Jon Stewart Show. Stewart moved into the film industry in the late 90s appearing in several major motion pictures, including Playing by Heart, The Faculty, Big Daddy, and Death to Smoochy among others. He is currently the host of Comedy Central's hit series The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. His stand-up is smart and funny, he displays a quick wit, and a big imagination during his act. Jim McGaffin, who you will recognize from the movies Super Troopers and Road Trip will open the show. This will be worth the $35 ticket price. Taft Theater Friday, October 18. 8pm.

October 10th-13th

KGAC fall fair

The Indian Ft. Theater in Berea will be the site for this annual event. From cutting-edge contemporary, to whimsical and traditional, all the work is designed and produced by over 120 of Kentucky's finest artists and craftsmen. There will also be some special guest exhibitors from around the nation. More than a unique shopping opportunity, the Fall Fair 2002 will be fun-filled with participation opportunities for all ages. Demonstrators will answer questions about how to make unique art and fine craft. A kaleidoscope of free hands-on youth projects, will give each budding artist a chance to stretch their creative abilities. While you're there, if you like to hike, the foothills behind the theater known to some as "The Pinnacles" provides many challenging but beautiful trails for you to explore. Info, 859/986-3192.

October 31st

Halloween rock

Halloween night in Lexington will be scary for more reasons than one. One of Lexington's favorite rock bands, Supafuzz, will play their annual fright night show at A1A. The guys in Supafuzz love Halloween and do not feel they are "too cool" to dress up, although they usually end up naked on stage at the end of this special night. Last year they played a prank on the large crowd waiting for them, by announcing the show had been cancelled then taking the stage dressed in full police attire. Supafuzz always has an incredible live show, but Halloween is especially fun because of all the cover songs they'll play, and the the costume contest before the show. 9pm A1A Info, 231-726.

October 5th

Paul McCartney

If you haven't seen Paul McCartney in concert before, this could be your last chance. The last time the former Beatle performed anywhere near here, George Bush's dad was President-and who knows, there might not be a next time. As of press, some tickets were still available for the show at The Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis through Ticketmaster, but even if the show is sold out by the time you read this, do whatever it takes to see this concert. Paul McCartney is more than a rock legend; he, along with The Beatles, changed the world. More than an entire generation of pop culture has been inspired by the songs he wrote with John Lennon, and to see him perform those songs live could be a once-in-a-lifetime event. He performs many of his favorite Beatles classics as well as hit songs from Wings and his solo stuff as well. There is no way this will be a bad show. The Conseco Field House Indianapolis, IN 8pm. $52/252.
