Summertime is more than lazy days and picnics. The Dog Days were once considered an evil time when “wine grew sour and dogs turned mad.”  We take a look at the good and the bad: summer flings and overheated outbursts; stories of indolence and frenzy. Plus, dogs. We like dogs. — Audio Under the Stars creators Jenny Morgan and Elizabeth Friend on “Dog Days,” the theme of the upcoming event

Audio Under the Starsa series of summer-long outdoor listening parties created by alums of the Center for Documentary Studies summer audio institutes—debuted last summer to widespread delight, with curated playlists of most compelling, fun audio pieces. CDS is delighted to continue hosting this summer’s series on Friday, July 24, with Dog Days: Stories of Indolence and Frenzy. Scroll down for the full series schedule.

Bring your own lawn chair or blanket. Dang Good Dogs will be selling hot dogs, turkey dogs, and veggie dogs all night. Audio Under the Stars is rain or shine. If it’s raining, we’ll be in the auditorium at CDS.
