The Plants are a four-piece Philadelphia based band for kids with an eclectic style that traverses musical genres while exploring the potential of the imagination. Each song is specifically written to spark new ideas, evoke different emotions, and encourage creativity. From a snake wearing flip-flops to intergalactic insects, the lighthearted music of The Plants is catchy, often times silly, and fun for children and adults alike. Find out more on Facebook. This will be The Plants first show at the Colonial and we’re super excited!

To judge from the movie and the Texas Monthly article that inspired it, nearly everyone in Carthage loved Bernie, including the minister who after the shooting preached that Bernie “needs to be with God, and he needs to know that we are with him.” The preacher didn’t say that Bernie needed to be in heaven to be with God.
