March 3-9

In this first week of March, we’re starting to wake up from our non-winter winter, which means First Fridays (South Bend! Goshen!) and film festivals (feminists and earth lovers!) and music (Midway! Veggie Buddies! LangLab! Ignition Music Garage!). We’ve got an art fair (South Bend)  and a gallery opening (Make South Bend and Jonathan Randall…

February 10-16

There are eight different kinds of music playing town this week and a wonderful challenge in the arrival of Leonard Pitts, who is certain to give us richer questions for one another. My shortlist includes 13th at Civil Rights Heritage and American Invertida at Notre Dame. Friday, February 10 *Music in DSTB @ Lasalle Kitchen & Tavern, 5-9pm…

November 4-6: It’s the Weekend!

Though I love First Fridays in DTSB—it’s been fun to see the energy grow in the six years I’ve lived here—this Friday I’ll have to miss it, as I have tickets to Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home in Chicago. I’m so excited, as I loved her graphic novels and the clips of the show I’ve seen….

October 21-23: It’s the Weekend!

This weekend offers more Oktoberfest fun at Bare Hands (can’t wait until they’re in DTSB!), and if we weren’t headed to New York, you might find me in Chicago enjoying Danish Dance Theatre’s Black Diamond. I have no rhythm, but I find that dance performances affect how I move and think and take up space,…

October 10-13

DTSB’s Beer Walk is making Wednesday a happy day, and Richard III is just one performance option for this week (and one I highly recommend. The Actors from the London Stage always bring a strong show). What fun will you find? Monday, October 10 Monday Night Jam in South Bend @ The Brick, 6pm Geeks Who Drink in…

September 12-15

Walk it off at the annual Elkhart Art Walk or monthly DTSB Wine Walk, both this Wednesday. What fun will you find? Monday, September 12 Red Table Plaza Lunchtime Concert Series in DTSB, 11:45am-1:15pm *Ruth Bader Ginsberg in Notre Dame @ Purcell, 5:30-7:30pm Geeks Who Drink in Mishawaka @ Evil Czech, 7pm Jazz Open Session in DTSB @ Merriman’s Playhouse, 7:30-10:30pm…

September 5-8

Wicked is returning, and fortunately for nearly two weeks because its first few nights run against a wonderful dance production (MOMIX!) at DPAC. If creating is more in your line, Make South Bend has some fantastic classes this fall. I want to check out this week’s Calligraphy course. What fun will you find? Monday, September 5 *African Festival of the…
