Stephane Wrembel: This Sunday at the Carriage House Café — Jazz guitarist Stephane Wrembel has been called a “revelation” by Rolling Stone. You’ll probably agree if you’ve heard Wrembel’s composition “Bistro Fada,” the lithe and capricious theme song for Woody Allen’s Academy Award-winning film Midnight in Paris.  Having been under the tutelage of Gypsies in the French countryside, Wrembel is well-versed in myriad musical instruments and styles. Touches of flamenco, rock and blues infuse his jazz recordings, particularly on his latest album, Origins. Wrembel delves deep into his roots and shares his impressionistic songs at the Carriage House this Sunday. Tickets can be purchased for $20 at the door. — Daveen Koh ’13

Mother of Exiles: 7:30 p.m. on Friday at the Schwartz Center — Stop right there, hombre. If you are in the mood for some thrilling action, or are simply just curious about the what it might be like to cross the Mexico-U.S. border, then don’t miss Mother Of Exiles. This play will present unique interactive experiences that enhance your knowledge of the border conflict while also entertaining you immensely. Follow the plight of main character Magda Andrews as she attempts to teach American civics at the Arizona-Mexico border and meets nothing but hard times (and also guns). So buckle your seatbelts and get ready for a wild ride. — Gabrielle Velkes ’16

Now Scream! The Hip Hop Collection Exhibition: Runs in Kroch Library’s Kirschland Gallery from Apr 5, 2013 to Feb 4, 2014 —Cornell is celebrating Hip Hop’s 40th birthday in style. Rare vinyl records, live performance recordings and the first feature film about Hip Hop will be among the dazzling items on display at the Hirschland Gallery. The exhibits have mostly been drawn from the over 50,000 items that make up Cornell’s expansive Hip Hop Collection, the largest archive of its kind in the world. The Collection’s ultimate goal is to salute the culture and history of Hip Hop. Now Scream! is the first exhibition of the artifacts, which were given to Cornell in 2007 by writer and curator Johan Kugelberg. Pour some out for hip hop and enjoy the show. — Danyoung Kim ’16
