This Weekend: Unlimited Enthusiam, Ukulele Ray and the KoKonutz and Frida Kahlo's 101st Birthday
By Jonathan McNamara
Friday: Ukulele Ray and the KoKonutz We're unsure how much faith you can put in anything a parody artist says, but if myspace is to be believed, Ukulele Ray is capable of imitating a "cast of thousands." Come take a gander at the man who dresses like Captain Morgan and wails on a lunchbox Hawaiian instrument when Ray and his band the KoKonutz invade the Paisley Violin this weekend.
For more information about Ray and the KoKonutz read "Show of Farce" by Leslie Barton.
Saturday: Frida Kahlo's 101st Birthday
What do you buy someone for their 101st birthday? Somehow when you're on your second year in triple digits a cake and a card just don't seem to cut it.
Changing Hands Bookstore is taking a stab at celebrating the late artist with a party in her honor this Saturday.
Wanna get your art on? Read "Addicted to Dove" by Leslie Barton for the party details.
