American stand-up comedian and actor Sinbad will be returning to the LPAC on Thursday, April 21st at 8:00pm. Sinbad, whose last Comedy Central Special beat out both Larry the Cable Guy’s last special & Jim Gaffigan’s last special will also be starring in his very own tv show, SINBAD’S FAMILY AFFAIR, for the WE Network to air in April! Sinbad is a legendary comedian not because he tells jokes – “I don’t know any,” he admits – instead, he stalks the stage, telling real-life stories. He doesn’t deliver payoff lines, he slam-dunks them! His comedy is large, physical, and impetuous. His clean, homegrown humor, family-friendly persona and animated antics have earned him dedicated fans of all ages since the 1980s. Sinbad began his career appearing on Star Search, where he won his round against fellow comedian Dennis Miller. Since this modest beginning, Sinbad has gone on to become one of America’s best-loved and funniest comedians to national stardom on television and movies. He made his big screen debut in the 1991 gridiron comedy “Necessary Roughness.” His other motion picture credits include starring roles in “Houseguest,” “First Kid” and “Jingle All the Way” and a cameo in “Coneheads.” He was the voice of the canine Riley in “Homeward Bound II.”

It is also a musical/comedy about life, priorities, the strange way humans behave when devastating news comes their way.

Description

Author Event: Zoë Sharp

zoe sharpCome to the library and meet Zoë Sharp, author of the Charlie Fox series.

A starred review in Booklist called her newest novel, The Fourth Day, ‘Must reading for fans of action-packed, hard-edged thrillers.’

About the series:

Charlotte ‘Charlie’ Fox has been described as a female version of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher. Like Reacher, Charlie’s background is military. She was a first-class shot who was selected for Special Forces training, but that’s where it all went horribly wrong. Chucked out of the army in disgrace, Charlie drifts through a variety of jobs in the early books, teaching self-defence, working nightclub doors, and house-sitting on a run-down housing estate. But then she meets up again with a spectre from her army past − one of her old training instructors, Sean Meyer.

Sean is now back in civvy street himself, involved in the dangerous world of exclusive close protection. After he asks Charlie to go and find out what happened to one of his men who was killed at a shady bodyguard training school in Germany, he offers Charlie a job and, after a rocky start, she embarks on a new career as a bodyguard.

Whatever her own misgivings − and the doubts of her family − being a bodyguard is the perfect legitimate outlet for someone with her lethal abilities.

Read on and find out why the Chicago Tribune described Charlie as: ‘Ill-tempered, aggressive and borderline psychotic, Fox is also compassionate, introspective and highly principled: arguably one of the most enigmatic − and coolest − heroines in contemporary genre fiction.’

WhenFri, March 18, 8pm – 10pm

Descriptionhttp://lpac.org/ Excellent and unusual, Calmus is a modern a cappella ensemble that offers the unique combination of a pure soprano voice with four male voices ranging from bass to countertenor. Calmus explores a wide variety of arrangements; including contemporary works by composers such as Fredo Jung (“The Year in Song”), Andre Asriel and Ludwig Bohme. Technically stunning singers, the interpretive talents and musicality of Calmus are matchless. They infuse their singing with wonderful lyricism and exquisite expressiveness.

ART

The Color of the Night

Hosted by Antelope Valley Allied Arts Association
Cedar Center: 44857 Cedar Avenue
Show runs until Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

On Saturday, January 22nd, 2011, the Antelope Valley Allied Arts Association opened “The Color of Night.” Inspired by the duality of the human spirit, this show is a collection that portrays a broad perspective on the wonder of life through the eyes of individual artists. Emphasizing the dark as well as the light side that resides within us all, this show is the most poignant exhibit that the Association has ever presented.

“The Color of Night” runs until Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011. For more information, contact Michelle Navarrete at (661) 450 – 5549.

This year, the best of exhibition winners will also be awarded with participation in a large public art installation located on The BLVD and Elm which gives the artists the opportunity to comment on the role of the visual arts in building community, and how the new museum will fit into the future of the arts in the High Desert.

26th Anual Juried Art Exhibition hosted by Aven’s Furniture

This year’s juried exhibition will differ than those of previous years. Titled look here., the exhibition will turn The BLVD into a temporary museum.Through collaborations between LMAG, BLVD businesses and participating artists, the exhibition explores the idea that virtually any place can be designated a museum and recognized as aesthetically or historically valuable. Selected artworks will be publicly displayed in and around BLVD businesses, each with identifying signage and labels indicating that they are part of look here. The BLVD itself will be transformed into a connecting gallery through highly recognizable displays and way finding.

Plan to join us Friday February 4th from 5 to 9pm for finger food, wine and cheese.
