Cheap Thrills

FLY BY NIGHT: For those of you who saw Far Away So Close (1993) last year at The Loft and felt you'd missed part of the story, here is your chance to fill in the missing pieces. The story actually begins with Wings of Desire, also written and produced by Wim Wenders, with two angels traveling through the city (which happens to be Berlin) listening to people's thoughts. Wings is in German with English subtitles, and will be screened on video at 7 p.m. Friday, June 30, in the East Gallery of St. Philip's In The Hills, 4440 N. Campbell Ave. An open discussion will follow, as part of Tacheria's ongoing Religion in Film series. With coffee, tea and snacks to boot, it's not bad for a free evening. Call 529-1206 for information.

SEVEN PIPERS PIPING: Arizona Mini-Concerts continues its 15-year tradition with a stirring and colorful "grand finale" Fourth of July performance by the Seven Pipers Society at El Con Mall, Broadway east of Country Club Road. The regimental pipe and drum band is joined by a ceilidh dance band, vocalists and Highland and Scottish country dancers. These kilt-clad lads and lasses perform for free at noon Tuesday, July 4. Call 798-6980 for information on the event or about learning Scottish music or dance.

BOOKSIGNINGS: Husband-and-wife naturalists Gary Paul Nabhan and Caroline Wilson will sign copies of their new book Canyons of Color, capturing the awe-inspiring landscape of Utah's Slickrock Wildlands, from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, July 2, at The Haunted Bookshop, 7211 N. Northern Ave. Striking a different chord is Copper Crucible, Jonathan D. Rosenblum's historical account of how the Arizona miners' strike of 1983 recast labor-management relations in America (see his article in our Currents section this week). Rosenblum will present a brief discussion before the signing, from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, July 2, at Barnes & Noble, 5480 E. Broadway.
