The treasured and iconic “will they or won’t they” romance between Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy is infused with fresh vitality and hilarity in this effervescent new comedic adaptation. Mrs. Bennet is determined to find suitable husbands for her daughters, but can’t quite get fiercely independent Elizabeth on board — at least not when it comes to the impossibly arrogant Mr. Darcy. At once both warmly familiar and surprisingly funny, the Bennett family’s shenanigans have never felt so modern.

Lake Street Dive will play The VETS just off the release of Free Yourself Up, its second album with Nonesuch Records in May. The band -- drummer Michael Calabrese, bassist Bridget Kearney, singer Rachael Price, and guitarist/trumpeter Michael "McDuck" Olson - self-produced the album at Goosehead Palace Studios in Nashville with engineer Dan Knobler. Lake Street Dive formed in 2004 while students at New England Conservatory and have been touring non-stop ever since, growing from basement venues like The Lizard Lounge in Boston, MA to selling out Radio City Music Hall in New York City. For this album, the quartet drafted touring keyboardist Akie Bermiss to join them in the studio. Adding another player to the process freed up the band members to explore a wider range of instrumental textures, construct more full-bodied arrangements, and build on their well-known background harmonies. "This album is based in the realities in our time," Kearney reflects, "which have inevitably become part of everyone's daily life. It's something you think about and obsess over -- and write songs about. Free Yourself Up is about empowering yourself, emboldening yourself, no matter what's going wrong.”

Lake Street Dive will play The VETS just off the release of Free Yourself Up, its second album with Nonesuch Records in May. The band -- drummer Michael Calabrese, bassist Bridget Kearney, singer Rachael Price, and guitarist/trumpeter Michael "McDuck" Olson - self-produced the album at Goosehead Palace Studios in Nashville with engineer Dan Knobler. Lake Street Dive formed in 2004 while students at New England Conservatory and have been touring non-stop ever since, growing from basement venues like The Lizard Lounge in Boston, MA to selling out Radio City Music Hall in New York City. For this album, the quartet drafted touring keyboardist Akie Bermiss to join them in the studio. Adding another player to the process freed up the band members to explore a wider range of instrumental textures, construct more full-bodied arrangements, and build on their well-known background harmonies. "This album is based in the realities in our time," Kearney reflects, "which have inevitably become part of everyone's daily life. It's something you think about and obsess over -- and write songs about. Free Yourself Up is about empowering yourself, emboldening yourself, no matter what's going wrong.”

After Ulysses Lincoln is lost at sea and presumed dead, the Gulf War veteran struggles to find his way back home to his wife and son while unknowingly being controlled by a host of gods — both scheming and benevolent. Along the way, he must confront his ancestral past so that he can embrace his unsettled present. His journey is an epic, breathtaking, and gloriously theatrical reimagining of Homer’s classic that brilliantly combines Greek mythology and African-American history of the last fifty years.
