May the chords be with you
Cello? Is it air conditioning you're looking for? If you've been searching for somewhere to beat the heat and bass-ically stay outta treble this summer, don't miss this opportunity to level up your musical sophistication. Eastern Music Festival is back in full string, er, swing, this year, with concerts and performances featuring all sorts of ensembles. From chamber music to piano recitals, from young artist showcases to orchestras, they've got it all. Grab your tickets, meet us there, and join us for a nightcap of our fav drink – limoncello – afterwards.
Here comes the sun(flower)
Over at Dewberry Farms, they've got big heads. Flower heads, that is. Stay tuned because they are aaaallllmost ready to swing open the garden gate to sunflower-picking season. Get ready to walk in fields of gold, starting July 15. O.Hey tip: Book in advance.
Shall we shag now, or shall we shag later?
On July 16, the High Points Arts Council kicks off their Dancin' & Shaggin' at the Station summer series. On July 16, July 23, August 13 and August 20, from 7-10 p.m., you're invited to shake your groove thang to live music at Centennial Station. Tickets are limited, so grab yours now – we hear you shag like a minx.
Our kind of Exhibit-ionists
GreenHill Center for NC Art debuts their latest exhibit, Rebecca Fagg & Jack Stratton: Two Retrospectives, on July 16. This show, which runs through November 7, will feature paintings spanning five decades of artistic expression from these two UNCG grads. They're both a little sketchy and shady, but . . . you get the picture.
We feel seen
Local artist Karen Archia is coming at us straight outta residency at the Center for Visual Artists. Her exhibit, Seen Through, opens today and runs through August 15, with a First Friday celebration on August 6, from 6-9 p.m. Archia's – it's taking all of our willpower not to spell it Art-chia – work is all about self-reflection and community connection, which is exactly what we need in 2021.
You should give a folk
It takes the Village People to run an incredible musical festival. The NC Folk Fest is seeking volunteers to help make this year's return to live stages smooth and spectacular. We've got zero folks left, but you can help.
Return of the
Jedi Spartan Cinema
Spartan Cinema at LeBauer Park returns this week with Friday night movies through August 20. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker kicks off the series. Don't be a Rogue One – meet us there! We'll be the ones by the food truck doing our best Jabba impression, which we flawlessly achieve without even trying.
Jaw ready for this
Guess what week it is, beaches! It's Shark Week at the Greensboro Science Center, now through July 17. Check their website for fintastic happenings – like shark olympics – so you, too, can become fluent in sharkasm. Remember, sharks are friends, not food.
Do you speak whale?
On July 14, the Carolina Kids Club at the Carolina Theatre rolls into action with Finding Nemo. Each Wednesday morning through August 11, hit the theater for live-stage entertainment at 9:30 a.m., followed by a different family-friendly movie at 10:15 a.m. Keep the kids cool and your disposition cooler. (And don't forget about their Summer Film Fest happening now! This week's showings include para bailar La Bamba and Independence Day.)
So you think you can dance
Greensboro Downtown Parks seeks dancers from all genres and across cultures with moves – better than Jagger – for National Dance Day GSO on September 18. We've been practicing our Toxic routine and just ordered our Free Britney shirt. Send your video and info to firstname.lastname@example.org.
