Feb 16, 2006 - 10:52 AMTonight: At 7:30pm, pianist Cristiana Pegoraro performs at PSHS in the Community Concert series. [Insert your own Chopsticks quip here.]
Friday: Indio's Date Festival opens at 10am, and the ostrich races start soon after. Later, at 6:15pm, there's a musical pageant (3 Wishes, Tale of the Seven Sisters), along with many other events. But I'm addicted to the ostrich racing. It's somehow very satisfying, aesthetically: flimsy chariots, steering with brooms, barely-orchestrated mayhem...
Saturday morning: At 10am, catch the PS Modernism show at the Convention Center. Get Bauhaused.
Saturday afternoon: Dezart Studio hosts an open forum poetry reading at 5pm. There once was a gal from Nantucket...
Saturday evening: The legendary Los Lobos band performs at the Date Fest, starting at 8pm. In the unlikely event you've never experienced this group, listen to a few samples of The Ride; you'll thank me later.
Sunday morning: The Discovery Home Tour lasts from 9am to 5pm. I always enjoy snooping through other people's houses.
Sunday afternoon: Don't miss the Palm Canyon Theatre production of "A Few Good Men" at 2pm. Aaron Sorkin's wonderful dialogue, performed live onstage: "You can't handle the truth!"
Monday: Frey II HouseTours (scroll down when you get there) start at 9:20am. More snooping. What a great weekend.
