On the scene

What did you think of KVMR’s anniversary bash over the weekend? Some terrific music. Those Humperheads are fine, are they not?

It was fun listening to The Beatles tribute band BBC at last Thursday Night Marketplace in Grass Valley; sound problems which Paul Emery fixed. Saw some hippie dancers from Pioneer Park there. Tonight is Great American Taxi.

Get thee to Off Broadstreet in Nevada City to see “Summer of Love.” I saw it Friday and was blown away by the harmonies, the instruments, the slide show of some of my favorite ’60s bands AND the appearance of Janis Joplin. You think I’m kidding? Sue LeGate channels her to a tee. Call (530) 265-8686 for reservations today!

Deadlines for entering the fair (Aug. 6-10) are closing. Call them at (530) 273-6217 or online at http://www.nevadacountyfair.com for the particulars.

Did you hear that a Nevada City resident recently won big in a poker event in Las Vegas?

Check out Andy Witek at http://www.worldseriesofpoker.com. Pretty cool!
