New Haven's International Festival of Arts and Ideas is back! The theme of this year's festival is "Transformation and Tradition," and runs from this past Saturday through June 28. You don't want to miss it.

John Dankosky and Where We Live will brighten your breakfast with a performance of a "comic-rap-scrap metal musical." They're just getting started. You also hear about corsets, bicycles, and hunter-gatherers.

We launch you into lunch. Will Holshouser and his accordion kick us off  to a conversation on technology's impact on the arts and more. Have lunch with us at The Study at Yale, located on 1157 Chapel  Street in New Haven at 1:00 pm.

Check out all the photos on Wolfie's Facebook page.
