Tonight’s Best Bet

What better way to end Cinco de Mayo weekend than with a little accordion music? (Don’t answer that.) Besides, calling Ponty Bone and the Squeezetones “accordion music” is somewhat akin to calling the London Symphony Orchestra a jug band.  Ponty works his zesty mix of zydeco and Texas blues tonight at Gruene Hall. Seeing that Cinco de Mayo is a festivity dedicated to the story of dedicated, passionate resourcefulness vs. an overblown culture; try to eat, shop and live locally today. ! Viva! Cinco de Mayo!

Lee Colee’ Studios and The Black Diamond Cabaret Theatre will be featuring a cast of 7-12 year-olds  in “Freckleface Strawberry”, based on the beloved New York Times Best Selling book by actress Julianne Moore. Freckleface will do anything to get rid of her freckles! From scrubbing them with soap to caking on makeup and even wearing a ski mask to school! Will Freckleface be brave enough to finally face her complexion in the mirror? With the help of her lovable schoolmates, an amazingly talented ballerina, a nerd, a cute jock, a charming ditz and a totally kooky teacher, Freckleface learns that everyone is different and that’s what makes everyone special! With soaring music, awesome dancing and a freckle face full of laughs, the whole family will love this brand new musical for all ages…freckles or not.
