Even though the weather in San Diego has been unpredictable lately; one day we have beautiful sunshine and the next, it’s pouring rain... we still have a week’s worth of fun to keep you busy - no matter what Mother Nature is in the mood for this week!
This Wednesday, March 30th, is Commune Wednesday, a monthly event that celebrates local art, music and fashion every last Wednesday of the month. Their goal is to celebrate local arts and music while educating people about the harm caused by the tobacco industry, and shift the focus of the younger generation from smoking to creative music and art. This week features a trunk show by Magpie Cacti, art by Jen Fong, musical performances by The Stereotypes and Trap Gold and DJ sets from Dead Air and Caca Metro. Stop by The Whistle Stop in South Park from 9pm to midnight to join in the fun. “Commune is a movement of artists, designers, musicians, and people that take a stand against tobacco corporations and their presence in the scene.” Friend them on Facebook for more info.
Thursday, March 31st, you can “get by with a little help from [your] friends” at a Beatles Mini Fest in North Park. From 7pm to midnight at Queen Bee’s, local bands will be playing Beatles covers. Vendors will also be selling Beatles memorabilia and there will be a Beatles art gallery and a raffle to win cool Beatles stuff. Tickets are only $8 and Queen Bee’s donates 18% of their profits to helping homeless youth in San Diego through various charitable organizations. So come out to enjoy some Beatles-mania and support a good cause while doing it!
Now through April 24th, don’t miss your opportunity to see Rafta, Rafta at The Old Globe Theatre in San Diego. Written by Ayub Khan-Din and directed by Jonathan Silverstein, this is the west coast premiere of Rafta, Rafta. This play pokes fun at the generational divide between opinions of sex and marriage as it tells the story of a close-knit family living together in London. Two newlyweds move in with the groom’s family and then discover they have to decide between saving their money or saving their marriage. Rafta, Rafta won the 2008 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy during its run at The National Theatre in London. Tickets to see the show in San Diego range from $29-$77.
