Friday, March 31 - Sunday,
April 2

Chances are that when you were little, you enjoyed banging on pots and pans in the kitchen. In "Stomp," this theory is applied to create a two-hour long concert and dance spectacular that would drive your mother crazy. Performers use everyday objects as instruments, stomping their way across the stage and using their whole bodies to create music. How often these days can you find an excuse to make so much noise without getting a party ordinance violation? See the action at Gammage Auditorium (1200 S. Forest Ave., Tempe) on Friday, March 31 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, April 1 at 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m., and Sunday, April 2 at 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Tickets range from $19.75 to $50. Reach the Gammage box office at (480) 965-3434.


Take Back the Night
Wednesday, April 5

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and Take Back the Night is a fun way to raise awareness of such a serious issue. Homesafe, a violence prevention advocacy center on campus, puts on this event each year in an effort to educate students about the danger of sexual assault. With resource tables, music, a Silent Witness display, Clothesline display, speakers, a march on Mill Avenue and a candlelight vigil, Take Back the Night brings an important cause to Palo Verde Beach in Tempe (on University Drive, between Mill Avenue and Rural Road). Stop by from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. to support the cause. Call Health and Wellness Promotions at (480) 965-4721 for more information.


Tempe Music Festival

With more than 30 bands performing on three different stages, the Tempe Music Festival offers something for everyone. See Zowie Bowie, the Gin Blossoms, Vertical Horizon, G. Love & Special Sauce, Train, Authority Zero, and Alien Ant Farm, just to name a few. While you're at Tempe Beach Park (Rio Salado Parkway and Mill Avenue, Tempe), check out sponsor Fender's display of custom-made guitars. And if you get bored, walk down Mill Avenue for the Tempe Festival of the Arts, a free display of hundred of fine arts and crafts vendors that is going on the same weekend. Tempe Music Festival hours are 5 p.m. to midnight on Friday, March 31 and noon to midnight on Saturday, April 1.

Art & Music

"Art Inspires Music" Exhibition and Live Concert
Tuesday, April 4

When you listen to some songs, you can't help getting visual images in your mind that correspond to the music. And sometimes, when you look at a piece of artwork, it brings to mind a certain tune or genre of music. "Art Inspires Music" takes this idea one step further, by pairing together local artists and musicians. Musicians chose artwork from the ASU Art Museum's permanent collection and composed original compositions for the exhibit, which openend March 31. To showcase the musicians -- Yolanda Bejarano, Aaron Gerwien, Steven Reker and Robin Vining -- the art museum (at the Nelson Fine Arts Center on the ASU campus) is hosting a free live concert at 7:00 p.m. For more information, call (480) 965-2787.
