Super rad burlesque show, and this time they’re putting on their annual Spring extravaganza, Magic Garden. “Nothing says spring like getting your garden started, but Petunia Rufflebottom is having a bit of trouble.

Sci Fi Author Event.
678 S Main St, Lebanon. 2 -4 p.m. Free.
I haven’t checked out the work so I can’t tell you any more than our calendar does, but if you’re into sci-fi like me, you’ll want to turn a couple of pages and check this one out!
Sea Marks. Majestic Theatre, 115 SW 2nd Street, Corvallis. 3 and 7 p.m. $10-12.
Fisherman lives alone on an Irish island, falls in love at first sight and… doesn’t get a second sight. Maybe not the best plot summary to sell you on, but you’ll have to trust me on this one: this is an excellent play. Check the following website for other showtimes: majestic.org/.

Found this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6X_UyNh8uE) awesome Kurtis Copenhagen performance from lord knows how long ago (its on VHS?). Hadn’t heard his stuff before, but I definitely dig it. Paired with glorious rockers Original Doozies (https://soundcloud.com/user-256267479), this should be one hell of a show. Save me a beer! For info, visit cloudandkellys.com/live-music/.
