CALENDAR FOR 05/18/06…
Thursday, May 18: San Luis Obispo natives Sherwood take a trip down the 101 today. The indie rockers will play a free show today in Storke Plaza in support of the upcoming release of their debut album, Sing, But Keep Going. The concert starts at noon and is being sponsored by A.S. Program Board.
Friday, May 19: Got a hankering for some homegrown movie magic? Student filmmakers from UCSB’s Film Studies 106: 16mm Film Production class present the student film screenings. Shorts include “The Dancing Llama,” “Scene and Heard,” “Remember” and “Blue Sunday.” The event starts at 8 p.m. in Girvetz 1004 and is free to the public.
Saturday, May 20: Take a trip south of the border tonight, as musicians Los Cenzontles present their unique twist on traditional Mexican music at the MultiCultural Center Theater. The band will perform a number of original works, along with a collection of folk-infused popular ditties. Tickets are just $5 for students and the show starts at 8 p.m.
Sunday, May 21: Before you venture out to Harder Stadium with your cooler and camping equipment in tow, your friendly A.S. Program Board promoters would like to lay down a few not-so-extravagant Extravaganza ground rules. Bottles, cans and other obscure beverage containers are a no-no, as are cameras and digital recorders. Skateboards are also prohibited and, despite their name, ALO does not want to meet your puppy, kitty or reptilian compadre, so don’t forget to leave Rover at home. The show starts at 2 p.m. and admission is free, so drop what you’re doing – and what you’re carrying – and head on over.
Monday, May 22: Aussie-bred noise-pop visionaries Architecture in Helsinki return from overseas to hit the Troubadour tonight at 8 p.m. The band’s short but sweet West Coast tour finishes up with Seattle’s Sasquatch Festival at the end of the month. Tickets are $13 general admission. The Troubadour is located at 9081 Santa Monica Blvd. in West Hollywood.
Tuesday, May 23: A.S. Program Board will screen the fantasy drama “Night Watch” twice tonight in I.V. Theater. Set in Moscow, the film depicts an imagery-driven, brutally bloody fight between the forces of night and day. Admission is $3 for students and shows start at 7:30 and 10 p.m. respectively.
Wednesday, May 24: Story time, anyone? Singer, artist and narrator extraordinaire Peter Arango brings his unique blend of tale telling and music making to the College of Creative Studies’ Old Little Theatre today. The performance starts at 4 p.m., so grab your juice box and skip on over.
