King of Nortena
Since 1996, Celso Piña has earned his crown as the king of modern musica norteña, bringing folk sounds into the 21st century with touches of reggae, ska, and hip-hop. Piña, a self-taught accordion player, has stood out through an approach that is more like a lead guitarist than a rhythm accompanist. Even Deadheads can be found dancing and spinning to the freeform jams. The bill includes local Latin funk rockers Marujah.

Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax
A Thneed is “a fine something all people need.” It’s made from the silk-like foliage of the Truffula tree. The Once-ler wants to make Thneeds and sell them for $3.98. He also wants to chop down every Truffula tree in the forest, which, among other horrors, may prompt the Lorax to be lifted away, “by the seat of his pants.”

Open Reading of Titus Andronicus
“When a society is oppressed, it becomes violent. How do we govern ourselves?” Titus has returned from a brutal 10-year war, having lost 21 sons in battle. He’s been betrayed by his nation, and his family is in pieces. Bloody events follow as he and Tamora, Queen of the Goths, begin a violent cycle of revenge. All ages welcome. Parts will be re-assigned before each scene, so all who attend will get a chance to read.
