The car stopped with a jerk and I got out
It’s not all that unusual for men of science to end up seeing visions. Swedenborg, Teller and even good old Einstein left much of the Newtonian view that dominates our culture behind when the veil was finally dropped. Steve Martin‘s (yes, the comedian) play, Picasso at the Lapin Agile, is still running at The Blue Room, and you have this weekend only to catch a hilarious look at a “what if” scenario in which Einstein and Pablo Picasso cross paths in a Parisian bar. Be on the lookout for someone even bigger than Ozzie making a guest appearance.
Somewhere between science and magic lies the land of music, and though you missed some outstanding shows this week (Gasoline, Bob Log, Hissyfits), you can catch, from the land of the wee folk, Danu, a traditional Irish band, at the ARC Tower Pavilion this Saturday, June 9. They’ll get your pulse racing as the stars come out.
In closing, I must urge you to turn on your radio to 90.1 on the dial. KZFR is one of the best-kept secrets in town and no matter what your musical tastes they have something to offer. I mean god bless Tim Bucmore and all the community support that stations like KFM and Zrock offer, but for diversity of sounds, from Latino to Celtic to reggae, you gotta check out the Zephyr. For instance, tune in to DJ Rubberband Thursday at 3 p.m. for a full hip-hop experience. It’s off the hiz-eye!
