The Secret Sister Plays at Headliners
The Secret Sisters initiate many new traditions on their second full-length album, Put Your Needle Down [Republic Records]—produced by the legendary T Bone Burnett. The duo of Laura and Lydia Rogers has certainly come a long way from their critically acclaimed 2010 self-titled debut and an even longer way from their childhood in Florence, Alabama—just outside of the legendary music mecca Muscle Shoals. Embracing a myriad of styles and focusing on songwriting this time around, their growth becomes evinced within both the music and the title.

Stoneware Third Thursday Lifestyle Series
Event includes free food and gardening demonstrations
The July 17 Third Thursday Lifestyle Series at Stoneware features Valerie Schirmer from Three Toads Farm demonstrating how to pot succulents in Stoneware. Succulents have thick, fleshy leaves that naturally conserve moisture.

Schirmer’s demonstration will include tips about soil, watering, sunlight, temperature and other key components for keeping your Stoneware succulent thriving year-round. Held in Stoneware’s new GE Monogram Experience Kitchen, the open house style event will be catered by Maison Culinary with complimentary “from the garden” themed hors d'oeuvre and cocktail tastings. A free event from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., the Lifestyle Series is designed to showcase authentic, local makers of products that complement the Stoneware products and lifestyle.
