The Play GroundThe Play Ground

It is almost summer and we were hoping to get some swimming in, but alas, we cannot go in the pool when it is 50 degrees out. So we are walking and running and going to pilates. A good stretch routine can make a difference in preventing injury. Andrew Phelka is a personal trainer and will demonstrate techniques for gaining flexibility and rehabilitating muscle injuries. Malletts Creek Branch, Thursday, June 11, 7:00pm.

The Ditty Bops perform at The Ark

TheDittyBopsTheDittyBops

Ever genre-defying, The Ditty Bops, will play at The Ark this Friday, June 12 at 8pm. Their quirky, and often interactive, performances tend to be pretty playful and include skits, slideshows, puppet shows, and costumes. The Los Angeles duo’s music has been described as a mixture of blues, western swing, folk, ragtime, bluegrass, and musical theater, with sweet vocal harmonies. For a sampling check out their snappy self titled debut album, as well as Moon Over the Freeway.
