The Look Ahead 2.16.10: The Wheel Workers, Technology & Soul, and Saints & Tzadiks
Never has a Wednesday hit harder than this one (well, until the next one rolls around). Getting over the hump is going to be a helluva task. A little rest and relaxation are just around the corner. I know… That’s not really helping, is it.

You read our review of the new album Unite on Monday. Now’s your chance to catch The Wheel Workers live. Prove us wrong. Walk away from the show saying that the music isn’t “dreamy.” We can take the criticism… maybe. The opening bands are Houston group Featherface and DFW’s The Orbans. We will be there. Will you?

“In this age of Twitter, iPads, and mobile phones, it often seems that the world of technology is drowning out the world of soul. But what if the world of the creative imagination and the world of machines were more mixed up than we usually acknowledge? Author Erik Davis explores how we imagine technology and how the seeming explosion of its influence in our lives is part of a long, fascinating history.”
