Voyeurs de Venus

  • Moxie Theatre, 6663 El Cajon Boulevard, Suite N, Rolando
  • $20 - $33

Sara Washington lands a huge book deal to tell the true story of Saartje Baartman, a South African woman paraded on the streets of 19th century London and Paris as the “Hottentot Venus.” But when Saartje’s ghost pays Sara a visit, the deal of a lifetime turns on itself. Can Sara write the truth and still have a best seller?

Holistic Orchard Care

Or: how to grow backyard fruit trees. Wild Willow Farm lies in a river valley three miles from the coast, so when the temperature drops into the 20s, they struggle with their citrus and figs, but they also grow pomegranate, apricot, almond, plum, and cherry trees. Class will emphasize pruning, gopher control, deep watering.

TwainFest

Hear works by Mark Twain, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, and others read aloud by San Diego actors. Enter the literary costume contest. Hear tall tales, stories and poetry. Visit Dr. Frankenstein’s laboratory. Delight in giant puppets. Learn to play the fife and drum. Vote in the election of 1872. Play croquet with the Red Queen. Sack races, ring toss, marbles and other games of the period will be played on the green. Launch a Calaveras jumping frog (bean bag, of course) with our catapult, or make a contribution to the Never Ending Story.

Localism: the good kind

Past Event

Mystic Bowie's Talking Dreads

  • Tuesday, August 21, 2018, 8 p.m.
  • Belly Up Tavern, 143 S. Cedros Avenue, Solana Beach
  • 21+ / $12 - $21

David Byrne was so stealthy about sneaking reggae beats into songs by Talking Heads that a lot of people didn’t realize they were listening to what would eventually be called “world music.” Talking Heads spinoff group Tom Tom Club was also heavy on both African and island percussion, and that band’s latter day singer, Mystic Bowie, eventually decided that the music of the Heads could easy be rearranged as straight-up reggae tunes. Since debuting his Talking Dreads in 2015 at – where else? – the High Times Music Festival, the group has played over a hundred shows, with a debut album released in June that features B-52s singer Cindy Wilson.

When: Tuesday, August 21, 8 pm
