What makes a band truly remarkable? Insightful lyrics? Memorable melodies? Blow-your-mind live performances? The truth is that it takes all of those things along with a boundless enthusiasm, an infectious energy and a supreme devotion to the fans. With this rare combination, a band may ascend past "good," - or even the record industry's Holy Grail, "marketable" - and reach sublime. Drawing on the hardships and joys of their own lives and a musical history ranging from old world Celtic to modern day punk rock, the seven members of Flogging Molly do just that, and they do it with a charm and an ease that makes them one of the most accessible bands performing today.

Riders in the Sky
Saturday, Sep 29 2:00p
Alaska Center For The Performing Arts: Atwood Concert Hall
Beginning each performance with their trademark greeting, "Mighty fine and a great big Western 'Howdy,' all you buckaroos and buckarettes," Riders in the Sky simultaneously paid tribute to and poked gentle fun at the classic cowboy songs of the 1930s and 1940s, particularly the work of the Sons of the Pioneers, Roy Rogers, and Gene Autry. During the 1980s and 1990s, the group was notable for its ability to attract fans both firmly within the country tradition (the Riders are members of the Grand Ole Opry) and from outside. Riders in the Sky are made up of lead singer Ranger Doug (born Douglas B. Green), Woody Paul (born Paul Chrisman) on fiddle and vocals, Too Slim (string bass and guitar), and since the mid-'90s, "Cowpolka King" Joey Miskulin on accordion.

Reaching Out & Touching our Solar System: Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Radar Program for Earth & Planetary Exploration
Friday, Oct. 5 11:30 a.m.
Alaska has some of the richest and most challenging terrain for remote sensing, from steep and glaciated mountains to fast-changing coastal dynamics and varied ecosystems in between. So naturally, JPL has favored Alaska as a natural laboratory for many of its airborne and spaceborne campaigns, and has worked closely with research institutions in the state, most notably the Alaska Satellite Facility and the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
This talk will present an overview of the radar program at JPL, and will highlight some of the advances in technologies and techniques that have led to breakthrough measurements and discoveries in understanding our solar system.
