Calendar: What's Happening

 published on Thursday, February 2, 2006


Thursday, Feb. 2
Art Awakenings
It might be sort of a cliche, but art really can be therapeutic and the Art Awakenings Program is proof. The program was set up with the mission "to empower mental health" through creative means including both visual art and poetry. Starting Thursday, Feb. 2 and running through Feb. 27 ASU's Kerr Cultural Center in Scottsdale (6110 N. Scottsdale Rd, Scottsdale) will showcase work created through the program. Some of this stuff is pretty powerful - we definitely recommend checking it out at the opening reception Feb. 7 from 7-9 p.m. For information call the Center at (480) 596-2660.

Friday, Feb. 3
"Rock and Roll High School" at Hot Pink
Tonight experience high school the way it should have been - hot dudes in tight pants, lots of booze and music playing really f-ing loud. It goes without saying that when Marky Ramone, drummer for legendary punk band The Ramones, rolls into town to hit the decks at Phoenix's Hot Pink (1724 E. McDowell Rd., Phoenix), someone's gonna get laid, someone's gonna end the night hugging the toilet and the rest of us are just gonna rock. Plus our favorite lady DJ Allie Cat is prowling back to the Valley from Las Vegas to get us off after the punk rock royalty get tired - William Fucking Reed of Shake! fame and Hot Pink resident DJ D. Redgrave will be there to lend a helping hand. $10 cover at the door - 21 and over only (sorry kiddos!)

Other Happenings
Thursday, Feb. 2
Art Speigelman - Comix 101
Art Speigelman has drawn the holocaust in a new light. With his graphic novels "Maus" and "Maus II," the Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist chronicled the horrors his parents experienced at Auschwitz during World War II, depicting his parents as mice and the Nazis as menacing cats (Katzies). Speigelman is often credited with reviving the adult graphic art form (read: he's gotten grownups back into reading comic books). Even if you're not an aspiring cartoonist or artist, the man's got a story to tell and we're sure it's worth hearing. Catch him tonight at the Orpheum Theater, 203 W. Adams St., Phoenix. Tickets are $10. For information call (480) 965-6018.

Wednesday, Feb. 8
Sonia Sanchez
Sonia Sanchez makes us want to spell woman with a "y." She is female activism personified and she's coming to the Valley on Wednesday, Feb. 8 to spread some knowledge. This award winning writer was named one of "today's most influential Black writers" and has penned over 16 books including "Homegirls and Handgrenades," "We a BaddDDD People," and "I've Been a Woman." With titles like that, this lecture is bound to be explosive - just the kind of inspiration you need to make it through Hump day. The lecture at the Desert Botanical Gardens' Webster Auditorium (1201 N. Galvin Parkway, Phoenix) is free and starts at 7:30 p.m. For details call (480) 965-6018.
