Baby and Johnny paved the way for future silver screen amalgamations of love on the dance floor; in other words, without Dirty Dancing, there would be no Step Up franchise (a horrifying thought, I know). With such a monumental legacy, Dirty Dancing deserves our utmost respect, as well as a high amount of romantic mega-sighs.
Obviously, there's no better place to celebrate it than Girlie Night, where we're unleashing the brand new quote-along (and sing-along! and dance-along!) version of the film.

Jesika Von Rabbit is the solo project from the singer of the LA Weekly's band of the year Gram Rabbit. How can you not fall in love with a girl who rhymes John Ritter with "apple fritter," and "soy sauce" with Kate Moss over a bed of dreamy, airy electronica?
Maria Del Pilar helps anchor The L-A Latin Alternative scene. Also described as a latin influenced Bjork. Part pop diva, part mystic dreamer, and all Los Angeles style, María Del Pilar paints a complex sonic for wonderland dancers and thinkers alike in both English and Spanish.
Okapi Sun sets the bar high for its massively hooky disco. It’s dance-pop that could very well set your brain in motion, not just your behind - Buzzbands LA. Tight beats, autotuned vocals, and hooks for days form a real live mythical EDM creature, much like the Okapi -- a weirdo mixed up giraffe-zebra that the twosome named themselves after.

In their upcoming summer headline tour, The Gallery will be performing songs off their newest album, Restless. This four person band built their grassroots fan base through word-of-mouth and relentless touring.

The bands versatility allows them to combine elements of folk, country and rock-and-roll to create an honest record with broad appeal. Existing fans gravitate towards the band and their songs and newcomers will find the songs on their newest album a great place to start.

David Beck headlines for one night only. The truth is one reoccurring theme in David’s comedy. He chooses not to make up wild scenarios or characters to find humor. David is quick to point out that his show is not “G” rated but an adult show with some innuendo that doesn’t use vulgarity to get his point across. He has been heard on Fox sports radio, and the nationally syndicated Todd and Tyler morning show. TV appearances include the Sprint: Comedy Time Network, and Night Shift.
When four guys started The Georges, they had a dream to play an amalgam of Rockbilly. They wanted to play early country with strong ties to the Bakersfield sound and the music of their heroes. Over the years they have produced a sound that is catchy, danceable, and really gets folks a movin’ and a shakin’ on the dance floor. They perform covers from Billy Holiday, Johnny Cash, and Elvis, and pride themselves on their dapper stage look. The Georges will keep y’all dancing’ through the Hill Country and beyond, so come out and see what the fuss is all about.
Pearl is excited to announce their new Summer Dance Hall Series in partnership with San Antonio Jazz legend Doc Watkins and sponsored by Corona and Cadillac.

Science has never met fiction like this. In 1974, Japan's Tsuburaya Productions (Ultraman) released twenty-six episodes of a TV show called Saru No Gundan. Much like the Turkish "interpretations" of movies like Rambo and Jaws, Saru No Gundan re-imagined an American blockbuster as something that was more digestible for its native country's culture. In this case, it was Planet Of The Apes. Saru No Gundan told the coherent story of a time-traveling family who were trapped in a future that was ruled by apes. Fair enough. In 1987, TV producer Sandy Frank discovered Saru No Gundan and said, "Boy, this is great! But it would be even better if I cut all twenty-six episodes into one movie, dubbed the whole thing in my bathroom, and called it Time of the Apes!!" And so he did. Time of the Apes is an illogical black hole of madness, jam-packed with psychedelic visuals, deranged dubbing, and ape soldiers who drive rainbow-colored hippie vans. The movie reeks of desperation, haste, and recklessness. It has UFOs and a child-ape named "Pepe" who wears corduroys. We're not saying that Time of the Apes is better than Planet of the Apes. But it probably is.

With a nod to exquisite corpse, “You Are Here” highlights a collaboration between Tim Kerr and Brian Phillips. Kerr studied painting and photography at UT–Austin and played a key role in Texas’ early punk scene as a founding member of Big Boys and other bands. Louisiana native Phillips illustrates his mantra “One man’s junk pile is another man’s art supplies” with puzzle-like constructions built from reclaimed wood. A tribute to inspiring icons, the duo’s joint project involved Kerr painting portraits of Rosa Parks, Evel Knievel and many more on surfaces pieced together by Phillips.
There seem to be two kinds of comedy fans in 2014: those to whom a Chelsea Lately credit is a come-on and those to whom it’s a warning flag. In the case of Josh Wolf, this binary proves as dumb as most. Though at 40-plus he looks every bit the Mannish Boy Frat Daddy, and his style—confidently delivered observations about sex and other bodily functions (what before the ’90s alt/club split was commonly known as “comedy”)—is definitely panel-ready, his actual life experiences as a single dad give his material and outlook a broader appeal than any niche he might appear to fit.
Master reuser Mary Elizabeth Cantú launched Spare Parts in 2011 in response to a decrease of creativity in the classroom and budget cuts in arts funding. Active throughout the year, her organization reaches 10 area school districts through its signature Fine Arts Fair. The fourth annual event aims to distribute a stockpile of donated art supplies among pre-registered teachers (plus members of the creative community from 12:30-1:30 p.m.) during a kid-friendly day with beats by DJ Lyricool, eco-friendly vendors, finger-painting sessions with artist Robert Tatum and photo ops with Spurs Jesus.

Founded in 1978, Primarily Primates is a 78-acre refuge housing and rehabilitating upwards of 400 animals, including apes and monkeys retired from circuses and biomedical research institutions, chimpanzees used in space training and Oliver—an upright-walking chimp once paraded on TV shows as a “humanzee.” Managed by the nonprofit Friends of Animals since 2007, Primarily Primates recently received a San Antonio Area Foundation grant to build a massive natural habitat for capuchin monkeys but also accepts (even less-than-perfect) produce donations to help feed its population, which also encompasses birds and lemurs. On Saturday, Green once again steps up to support the sanctuary by hosting A Hoedown for Primates, a fundraiser that treats guests to a “cruelty-free” barbecue buffet, live bluegrass music by Tennessee Valley Authority and a silent auction featuring spa packages and abstract paintings (pictured) created by an artistically inclined chimp named Buck.
