Skinny Jim & the Number 9 Blacktops to play Vincent's

Playing what has been dubbed "Hot Rod Rockabilly," Skinny Jim & the Number 9 Blacktops from the southern tip of Illinois tours constantly, taking their revved-up performances all across the United States and Europe while running full throttle each show.

17th Annual Latino Film Festival

Next week marks the 17th year that the Latino Film Festival will present films which many American audiences have not seen in mainstream Hollywood theaters. On March 27 through April 1, the Latino Film Festival will showcase its films in Worcester once again. The festival will be presented in part by Centro Las Americas, a nonprofit community center offering high-quality social services to residents in Worcester, and also by various colleges around Worcester.
