Wet Glitter. is an original play featuring music, puppets, and uranium with supernatural powers. The year is 1996. The place is Paradox Valley, Colorado, where a uranium mine was shut down in the '80s, and now the town is shutting down too. The play also flashes back to 1969 through the early '70sand compares the two times politically and culturally, especially musical culture. In the play, five people are hiding from the world in hopes of finding some kind of redemption amidst the destruction in this nuclear ghost town. Soon, they stumble upon crime, intrigue, love lost and found, and a small dog who has benefited from the uranium's powers.

Julia Weldon is a Brooklyn-based indie-folk-pop artist who just released her second album, Light Is a Ghost, the follow up to her 2008 self-titled debut. Produced by Saul MacWilliams (Ingrid Michaelson, Dan Romer) and featuring Adam Christgau (Sia, Tegan and Sara) on drums, the album showcases Weldon's storytelling, voice, and unmistakable charisma. Defined by its brash honesty, Light Is a Ghost is an American album in the truest sense. With an emotional resonance bigger than her own experience, Weldon tells the story of both the harsh city edges and limitless, open spaces. The album captures the feel of the open road on a late summer evening, while ruminating on past relationships that creep into that serenity.
