TumblrEmailOther Share Options

That’s older than some people I know (never mind whether or not ten-year-olds are people yet). To celebrate their anniversary, and to kick off their summer exhibitions, they’re having a party this Saturday from 7 – 9 p.m. First things first: there’ll be a (cash) bar. Few things compare to drinking in a museum. More […]

The Byrds and Beyond at the Coffee Gallery Backstage

The Byrds and Beyond at the Coffee Gallery Backstage

John York played with The Byrds. And The Mamas and the Papas. And Dr. John. And a bunch of other great musicians. Because that’s what you do when you yourself are a great musician: you play with others like yourself. He’ll be playing the Coffee Gallery this Friday, along with Billy Darnell and Chad Watson, […]

Co-Creator of The Daily Show at Vroman’s

Co-Creator of The Daily Show at Vroman’s

Have you ever heard of Lizz Winstead? Neither had I, until poking around the upcoming Vroman’s events and seeing that Mizz Winstead will be there this Thursday promoting her new essay collection, Lizz Free or Die, and that she’s a co-creator of The Daily Show. Poke around a little more and it turns out she was […]

Nature in Asian Art at the Norton Simon

Nature in Asian Art at the Norton Simon

As long as there has been art, people have been drawing nature. It’s pretty, you know. The way different cultures over time have represented nature is the stuff of a million theses. And while you wouldn’t think one could cover something as broad as “the role of nature in Asian art” in an hour, that’s […]

The Children, A World Premiere at Boston Court

The Children, A World Premiere at Boston Court

You guys know Medea, right? Not personally, but as a mythical figure and a Euripedes play? She kills her kids to spite her husband? That one. Okay, so imagine that a character from the play rescues the kids from their mother and accidentally time travels with them to modern-day Maine in the middle of a hurricane? That’s The Children, […]

Bart Edelman Reads from The Geographer’s Wife at Vroman’s

Bart Edelman Reads from The Geographer’s Wife at Vroman’s

Shameless plug alert: in another life (i.e. during the day), yours truly works for a certain independent literary publishing house that just so happens to be the publisher of the book referenced in the title of this here event listing. Don’t think of it as a shameless plug, though. Think of it as the sharing of first hand […]

Caltech Chamber Music Folk Present Joint Concert

But the good fight continues to be fought: Caltech, a brave institution if there ever was one, is putting on a joint concert of its Chamber Singers and its Chamber Ensembles. Scientists, the […]
