Not PHASE Away

Project PHASE, the program which effectively addresses problems faced by the university area's homeless, may find itself in a similar housing crisis after June 1, 1997 -- the date their current space deal with the Congregational Church concludes. Tonight, Thu, Feb 27, 7pm, the University Baptist Church Missions Committee calls an area meeting at San Antonio & 22nd, of congregations, businesses, and community organizations, to discuss options for relocating Project PHASE in the university area. 478-8559.

Holy Titclamps!!

Batman! There's a message from the Commissioner! Bear needs our help! You know Bear, Batman... He's the fellow at the Forbidden Fruit cave who gave you that snappy Prince Albert! He's got a holy buttload of medical bills. His partners in crime, Glover Gill (81/2 Souvenirs), Dee McCandless, School Trauma Flashback, Fat Daddy & the Belaires, Prescott Curlywolf, Flametrick Subs with Satan's Cheerleaders, and Engine Run Angry will be playing a benefit at the Electric Lounge in Gotham, Sun, Mar 2 to help! Alfred, be a chum and fetch our studs! 476-4596.

Pre-Spring Fling Thing

It's a little early and sure doesn't feel like Spring as we tap this on our frosty keyboard with shivver-r-rrring fingers, but Sun, Mar 2 brings La Primavera: A Spring Market & Music Fest to La Zona Rosa. Doors open at 11am with a $3 admission until 5pm, when the door price goes to $6. Perhaps hoping to thaw hands and hearts, Casa Marianella hosts the Spring celebration to raise money for their shelter for immigrants and political refugees. Crafts, jewelry, pottery, clothing, etc., will be on sale. Toqui Amaru, the ACC Jazz Band, Susanna Sharpe, and Javelin Boot, and more musical guests will perform. 385-5571.

Whine and Mac & Cheese

It's a gallery opening of a different sort... Brentwood Elementary will hold its annual Student Art Auction, Thu, Mar 6, 6:30pm at the school, 6700 Arroyo Seca. Nearly 30 works of art will be for sale to the highest bidder, and the artists will be in attendance to experience first-hand what it's like to be schmoozed up by a gallery crowd. In conjunction with this year's theme of Japanese art, second and third graders will set the mood with song and performance. All proceeds will benefit the school's art program. Bring your broker. 406-5913.

Teach Your Parents Well

Hey, kids! Tell the folks about the Webb Middle School Parenting Conference, Sat, Mar 1, 12:30-5:30pm. Parenting Through Changes is offered free at 601 E. St. John's. Maybe the folks could stand to bone up on a few elementals regarding the challenges of raising you modern tikes, like: helping children deal with racism; parenting alone; talking to children about sexuality; and the changing roles of fathers, just to name a few topics. There's free child care and cool family activities (Ballet Folklorico, door prizes). 834-0342, ext. 134.

Sierra Mad

If these events this week don't make you at least slightly more aware of the problems faced by the community of Sierra Blanca, then you just go and stick your head under the piles of nuclear waste that the great state of Texas is attempting to quietly bury there. Texas on Trial is a series of events scheduled for Sat, Mar 1, 4pm by the Sierra Blanca Legal Defense Fund. Head over to the State Capitol Building's south steps to hear a series of environmental speakers and locals from the beleaguered town. At 6:45pm, Sally Jacques and a crew of local artists will present a performance protest called Objection (See Listings). Then everyone is invited to La Zona Rosa for Dump Aid `97 featuring local bands and musicians. 447-8906.
