Hannah Karp had a pretty interesting piece today about a potential sale of Pollstar to the Oak View Group following the purchase of Venues Today late last year. That fact that this story is popping up again, right now, is very interesting. Don’t just read this article carefully — read between the lines. And then read between the spaces between those lines! This story is persisting for a reason and should be closely followed — let’s just say we’re all living in very interesting times.

Speaking of interesting, that was quite a hearing this morning in front of the House Intelligence Committee — it’s not every day that the head of the FBI testifies before Congress that he believes the President of the United States lied to the American people and that members of his cabinet are currently under criminal investigation. That’s like a two-for-one special! Speaking of Trump, Dave wrote today’s lead story on why he doesn’t believe Trump or the GOP Congress will actually go through with proposed cuts to federally funded arts programs and public broadcasting (although he thinks it’s an important conversation the country should have). Taylor has a piece on The Hum, an all-female collaboration series, and we report on the temporary closing of Alpine Valley in East Troy, Wis. And yes, the rumors are true. This issue features flattering pictures of both Rob Lowe and The Property Brothers. Enjoy!
