Abe Partridge – Mobile, AL singer/songwriter
Oct 25 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Singer/songwriter ABE PARTRIDGE performs in The Loft at the Uptown Art House on Thursday, October 25 fro 6-9pm – $5 Cover.  UAH doors open at 5pm.

People have said that Abe Partridge sounds older than his chronological age, and there’s a very good reason for that – he’s packed a lot of living into his 37 years.  Those experiences, ranging from the earthy to the surreal, the spiritual light to the depths of depression, come together with gripping intensity on Partridge’s second full-length album, Cotton Fields and Blood for Days. Over the course of ten songs, this troubadour draws listeners in with a combination of southern gothic storytelling and a dark humor reminiscent of the late Townes Van Zandt – delivered in a gravelly tone that conjures up images of Tom Waits in his barstool warming days.  Show starts at 6pm. Uptown Art House doors open at 3pm.  Admission is Free.

“…Partridge sounds like a prodigy of Townes, Guy and Rodney the way his lyrics poetically twist and turn via a grizzled and lived in voice over a jagged acoustic guitar

Sylvia Rose Novak – Singer/Songwriter
Oct 26 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Sylvia Rose Novak is a musician in a class all her own.  Music has always been a facet of her life, so much so that her parents remember that she started to sing before she could talk.  According to her mother, as a small child Novak not only could follow a tune but also could harmonize, hitting pitches perfectly.

Novak has worked a multitude of jobs through the years: horse training, amateur boxing, fitness instruction, turf grass research worker, and, as she puts it, she’s “tended a hell of a lot of bar.” She took this variety of jobs as much out of curiosity as necessity, and when she first started performing music, she viewed it as just one job among many.  The difference, however, was that Sylvia Rose Novak quickly came to realize that creating and performing music would become her lifelong passion.

Raised on a steady diet of folk staples including Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Joan Baez curtesy of her mother and classic country like Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Eddy Arnold from her father – and also a mix of show tunes, Irish Tenors, Bee Gees, and Moody Blues thrown in for good measure — Novak grew up surrounded by music. Her mother played guitar and both her parents enjoyed singing.

Novak excelled at any instrument put in front of her, whether it was piano in her early years, trombone in middle school and high school bands or the cheap red Silvertone bass that her father bought her at age 12. Since then, Novak has mastered a multitude of instruments including banjo, pedal steel, mandolin, and violin.

Sylvia performs in The Loft on Friday, October 26, from 7:00pm to 10:00pm.  Uptown Art House doors open at 5:00pm – Admission is $5

BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI – Classic Movie Sunday
Nov 4 @ 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm

The Uptown Art House proudly presents the Academy Award winning 1957 WWII adventure, THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI, starring WILLIAM HOLDEN, ALEC GUINNESS and SESSUE HAYAKAWA.  Sunday, November 4 – Showtime is 2pm – Admission is $5 Adults/$3 Kids under 12.

The film deals with the situation of British prisoners of war during World War II who are ordered to build a bridge to accommodate the Burma-Siam railway. Their instinct is to sabotage the bridge but, under the leadership of Colonel Nicholson (Alec Guinness), they are persuaded that the bridge should be constructed as a symbol of British morale, spirit and dignity in adverse circumstances. At first, the prisoners admire Nicholson when he bravely endures torture rather than compromise his principles for the benefit of the Japanese commandant Saito (Sessue Hayakawa). He is an honorable but arrogant man, who is slowly revealed to be a deluded obsessive. He convinces himself that the bridge is a monument to British character, but actually is a monument to himself, and his insistence on its construction becomes a subtle form of collaboration with the enemy. Unknown to him, the Allies have sent a mission into the jungle, led by Warden (William Holden) and an American, Shears, to blow up the bridge.
