Near the end of each week, this blog will have a list of things happening in the coming weekend. If there’s something you think should be on the list and isn’t, let me know. But not your baby shower unless I can attend without first making a purchase at Super Super Baby World.
This weekend starts early and leaves late.
Tonight (Thursday) the Dutch jazz group Ab Baars Trio with Ken Vandermark plays tonight (April 16) at the 701 Center for Contemporary Art.. $12. 8 p.m.
If it’s anything like Dutch theater it should be outlandish and wonderful.
The Bertolt Brecht play "Mother Courage and Her Children," April 17- 26 at USC’s Drayton Hall Theatre, corner of College and Sumter streets.(Spoiler alert: almost everyone dies.)The photo of the badass woman above is Robyn Hunt, who is playing the title character. She's just like your mom.
Indie Grits Film Festival, through Sunday April 19, Nickelodeon Theatre, 701 Center for Contemporary Art, CMFA ArtSpace, www.indiegrits.com
The usually offensive (and we mean that in a good way) playwright Neil LaBute’s “Fat Pig” can be seen at Trustus Black Box Theatre Friday, April 17, through April 25. 8 p.m., $10.
Chamber Innovista concert 3 p.m. Sunday April 19 USC School of Music. $15.
I’ve found that the most extensive and generally best events calendar can be found at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention and Visitor’s Bureau web site www.columbiacvb.com/
It doesn’t have EVERYTHING but it has more than most places.
Also the CVB “2009 Official Vistors Guide” is excellent. It has the most extensive and accurate arts group listings you can find. Unfortunately this list is not on the CVB web site.
