It’s July, which means that summer is in full swing! The triple digit heat is amongst us which leaves us scrambling for activities to participate in to keep cool. There are those that’ve been indulging in pool swimming, barbequing, summer blockbuster binging, and the list goes on. Speaking for myself, I’ve occupied my time pursuing all the top concerts in the Central Valley.

For women “of a certain age” who are interested in a dance performance experience, it can be difficult to find a school or group that’s the right fit. Classes marketed as being “for seniors” give the impression that if you’re over 50 you’re as breakable as glass, while some performance groups have a creepy, patronizing approach that can be downright insulting: “Look at them go! And to think they’re all over 60 years of age, wow!” Yeah, right.

Steven’s Eventful January and February

The year 2019 has gotten off to an epic start. These last couples of months have been very entertaining in the world of musical concerts and stand-up comedy shows that have taken place in the Central Valley so far. As the days pass more and more exciting events are being announced, and some that have been confidentially revealed to me, but I won’t say as it’ll spoil the surprise.

If Grace Note Music Studio has the standard of excellence that you would normally expect from a top-notch New York music school, it’s because its owner, Andrew Kenefick, is a top-notch New York music teacher.

Ecological calamity. International unrest. “Economic anxiety.” Spiraling debt and callous indifference to human suffering. Tide Pods. This generation has seen, experienced, and laughed in the face of terrible things. We sing in spite of how screwed up everything is.

There is No Secret—STYX Has Still Got It

One of the defining hits for the classic rock band Styx is “Fooling Yourself” (The Angry Young Man), and it has a lyric that goes, “And you’re fooling yourself if you don’t believe it. You’re kidding yourself if you don’t believe it.” For the 1,500 fans that attended the Styx concert at the Bakersfield Fox Theater on January 15, there was no fooling or kidding them to believe that even after 40-plus years in the music business, the Chicago rock ensemble continues to thrive, and their live show is proof of that.
