Not PHASE Away
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.
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.
Pre-Spring Fling Thing
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.
Whine and Mac & Cheese
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.
Teach Your Parents Well
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.
