Dia de los Muertos is a special day celebrated throughout Latin America, on which people remember loved ones who have died. The Dayton celebration will be in the Mexican tradition of celebrating with bright colors, imagery of calaveras (skulls) and more, but recognizes all Day of the Dead traditions. This is a free and family-friendly event.
We’ll kick things off at 200 S. Jefferson Street at 2 p.m. The parade leaves a little after 2:30 p.m. marching from Jefferson through the Oregon District and ending at Missing Peace Art Space at 3:30 p.m. where you can experience the community ofrendas (altars), performances and much more!

The Fall League
The Fall League documentary selected for screening at 2015 Baseball Film Festival in the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, NY
The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum (Cooperstown, NY) announced that The Fall League, a movie about seniors, softball and life, has been selected for screening in their 2015 Baseball Film Festival taking place September 25 – 27.
The film captures the story of Dayton senior slow-pitch leagues, “magnet” leagues which attract players from Troy, Sidney, Tipp City, and Vandalia as well as Dayton, Cincinnati, Springfield and Columbus.
This poignant film skillfully blends the commentary of experts Leon Speroff, M.D., a senior player himself and an advocate of the many benefits of slow-pitch for seniors; Dayton psychologist Dr. Kathy Platoni, a veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars; and Dennis Turner, Slow-Pitch Manager for Louisville Slugger. Expanding its scope beyond sport, the filmmakers explore the impact of family relationships, the bonding and camaraderie between players, and topics of aging that are necessary considerations for active seniors. It highlights military veterans in the league, and explores the relationship between team sports and military experience.
The Fall League is a film by Taller Trees Productions, a Dayton-area production company. The production team is headed by Tim Gebard (producer), Jennifer Taylor (director) and Dean Vincent (co-producer). The film also features an original motion picture soundtrack, composed by Gebard and recorded at Vincent’s Studio D in New Carlisle.
In April, 2015 the movie was awarded “Runner Up” in the documentary category at the Indy Sports Film Fest Experience at The Arts Gallery of Ontario (AGO) in Toronto, Canada. Aaron A. Weiss, director of the festival, says “…The filmmakers have crafted a compelling story about one of the fast-growing populations in North America. This film about seniors is important in a society that can be seen to devalue its elders. It interweaves the theme of sports with issues of aging and health. It shows us that we can enjoy life and have fun playing sports at any time in our lives.”

Though last year saw the Misra Records released “hits” collection, These Are They Days Gone By, Mind Glitter is The Motel Beds’ first new album in three years. Which may not seem long until you notice that they released five albums in the three years between 2009 and 2012. Which makes Mind Glitter pretty special. Starting an album as soon as the latest one’s final tracks are done (guitarist Derl Robbins, who also helped record the last few Guided By Voices albums, records the band himself), they’ve had 36 months to throw out hooks, choruses, puns and bad jokes, and then try them all out in front of live audiences. What materialized with Mind Glitter’s songs are some of the most varied and beautiful the band has laid down yet. Highlights are scattered all around with “Open Ocean” kicking off to waves of acoustic guitar and drums, the gorgeous Beach Boys harmonies of “Queens for the Summer,” the airy psychedelic drone of “Paper Trees,” the unrelenting, fist-pumping riff from “Live City,” the pure 90s-ness of the breakdown on “Set Ender,” and then throwing a sweaty arm around you with “We’ve Killed More for Less.” Yup. The Motel Beds are back and more infectious than ever. You won’t be able to get rid of them this time. I’m alluding to bedbugs, guys. Bad jokes! Mind Glitter will be released on 10/16/15 through Anyway Records and is available on CD/LP.
