Last year was the Winter Jam’s first appearance on tour in the West. It was huge so it only makes sense that this Christian music festival is visiting again, this time with artists Tombymac, Sidewalk Prophets, Capital Kings and more. Uniquely to other concerts which you must buy tickets in advance to get even decent seating, the Winter Jam prides itself with a strict no-ticket policy. It’s all at the door, baby.

MEXICO AT THE HOUR OF COMBAT
Whether you’re looking to celebrate your heritage, or you’re an artist eager to witness history through an old fashioned lens, this vintage collection provides countless intriguing images taken around the capital of Mexico one century ago. The first four years of La Revolución resulted in rare images of camaraderie from rebel men and children marching the streets holding signs, calling for the resignation of President Porfirio Diaz, to photographs of armed uniformed soldiers flooding the sidewalks. While little is known about the mysterious photographer, Sabino Osuna, whose work largely contributed to this exhibit, hundreds of glass negatives in this very collection demonstrate his ability to connect with subjects, resulting in his successful documentation of all sides in the struggle.

His music began in the late ’80s and lasting throughout the peak of his career during the 1990s and produced contemporary songs like “Right Here Waiting” and “Endless Summer Nights.” If that doesn’t jog your memory, just find a picture online of his long wavy hair-do.
