Things to Do, This Weekend, Feb. 29 - March 1

Posted By on Fri, Feb 28, 2020 at 3:00 PM

Tea Tasting at Catalyst. The Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance is hosting Chantilly Tea at their new Catalyst Arts & Maker Space for an afternoon of tea exploration. Tamara Read, certified tea specialist and proprietor of Chantilly, will go over multiple loose-leaf teas, such as oolong, black, green and white. You’ll learn the ins and outs of different tea types, and how they achieve their unique flavors. Scones will even be provided with the drinks to complete the event. Participants will also be given a selection of free tea samples to take home. You’ll be a tea snob in no time! 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 29. Located on the bottom floor of the Tucson Mall, 4500 N. Oracle Road, Suite 110. $20.

Pop-Up Souk. The Elfa Refugee & Youth Empowerment nonprofit is hosting their third pop-up souk (or souq), a celebration of Syrian foods where you can eat as well as learn. This event features Syrian sweets, finger foods and chak chak, the Tatarstani fried cake often paired with hazelnuts or dried fruit. The souk also features two classes on how to make your own Syrian sweets. The proceeds from this ELFA event will go to support a Syrian family and a Russian family who recently came to Tucson. 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 29. At Grace St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 2331 E. Adams St.

Portal Cocktails grand opening.
From the minds behind Ermanos Beer & Wine Bar comes Portal Cocktails, a “transformational experience” with a unique atmosphere designed to be far more than just another place to grab a late-night drink. Although the menu is still under wraps, Portal is dedicating itself to “craft cocktails.” What we do know for sure is that the Fourth Avenue location was designed by local architect Rob Paulus, and the design is just as much an art piece as are the fancy drinks. Opening 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 29. 220 N. Fourth Ave. 21+

History on Tap 2020.
While it can be tough to remember the difference between “historic” and “historical,” you can rest assured the Arizona History Museum’s speakeasy party will be both. For History On Tap 2020, the museum is “celebrating” the 100th anniversary of Prohibition by inviting a whole slew of breweries to share their brews, along with local food vendors and live music from the University of Arizona’s Fred Fox School of Music. Participating breweries include Crooked Tooth Brewing Co., Corbett Brewing Co., Old Bisbee Brewing Company, Harbottle Brewing Co., Barrio Brewing Co., Copper Hop Ranch Farm Brewery and many more. You’re invited to dress in your best 1920s-themed costumes and enjoy samples from each participating brewery and distillery. History on Tap is an annual event by Los Amigos, Friends of Arizona History, Inc., and the AHS Southern Arizona Chapter Board to support the Arizona Historical Society’s Arizona History Museum. 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 29. 949 E. Second St. $40.

Sentinel Peak East Anniversary Party. Sentinel Peak is celebrating their move to the east side exactly one year ago with live music, food and drink specials all day. Described as Sentinel Peak East’s biggest party of the year, they’ll also be serving up some racks of ribs and smoked brisket to complement their craft beers. I recommend either their dark Dewpoint Dunkel or the lighter Salida del Sol Amber as a great pair for the barbeque. 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 29. 9155 E. Tanque Verde Road, suite 177.

Collage: A Creativity Workshop.
There’s something about using the creative part of your brain that can just leave you feeling refreshed and renewed. If you don’t think of yourself as a creative person, the great thing about collages is that you’re using existing material to make something new and beautiful. Artists Saraiya Kanning and Abby Dockter are hosting this workshop for people with all levels of experience to learn about making collages of words, images shapes and textures. All materials, plus a healthy snack, are provided. 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 29. Raebird Creations Studio (email for location details). Non-refundable $20 deposit required.

Native Nations Day at the Presidio Museum.
Tucsonans like to talk about who was born here, who grew up here and who’s a transplant. But, when you consider the Tucson valley has been inhabited for over 10,000 years, you remember that we’re all kind of transplants. Head to the Presidio Museum this weekend to celebrate Native American culture though crafts, food and lectures. Local artists, including potters, carvers and basket weavers, will be doing demonstrations, and you can enjoy some food tastings from the San Xavier Co-op Farm. AND there will be fry bread for sale. A wonderful way to spend a Saturday. 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 29. Presidio San Agustin del Tucson Museum, 196 N. Court Ave. Free with $5 GA, or $1 for kids 6 to 14 and free for kids 5 and under.

Congress St. $100 (includes two drink tickets; food; and beer, wine and liquor tastings).

Elaine Horwitch was an art dealer who played a major role in the contemporary art world if the Southwest from the 1970s through to her death in 1991. Her galleries in Scottsdale, Santa Fe, Sedona and Palm Springs launched the careers of hundreds of artists and fostered the style now known as “Southwest pop” or “new Western art.” This exhibit at the Tucson Museum of Art features the work of some of her galleries’ most popular artists, including Tom Palmore, Lynn Taber, Billy Schenck and Louise Nevelson.

Also, CCP Chief Curator Rebecca Senf will be discussing and signing her new book, Making a Photographer: The Early Work of Ansel Adams. Noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 29. Center for Creative Photography, 1030 N. Olive Road. Free.

Dive Bar Bus Tour. Who doesn’t love a good Tucson dive bar? And who doesn’t love the idea of us all piling into a school bus to tour them all together? This event starts at 2 p.m., so buckle up and get ready to start diving into dive bars early. The best part is that the tour benefits The Sanctuary Project, which takes care of rescue dogs. So, pile into the bus and do some day drinking! Do it for the animals! Do it because you are noble! Do it for the greater good! 2 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 29. Start at Trident Grill II, 2910 N. Swan Road. $60.

Found Footage Festival. The lens of nostalgia has a peculiar way of tugging at the emotions, even if the memories aren’t your own. Take a child on a sunny lawn, throw a gritty VHS tinge over it, and you’ve got yourself a universal image. The best part, this works for almost any emotion, and the guys behind the Found Footage Festival know time’s power well. The Loft Cinema is hosting the ninth Found Footage Festival, featuring Joe Pickett (The Onion) and Nick Prueher (The Colbert Report), and a whole mountain of once-forgotten VHS tapes ready for a new life. Pickett and Prueher have scrounged thrift stores and garage sales for our cultural subconscious, and are showing the funny and confusing relics to audiences around the nation. This is a celebration of “all things found.” 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 29. 3233 E. Speedway Blvd. $15.

Southern Arizona Transportation Museum Lecture Series. Time to learn more about trains! This week, Richard Dick is talking about Clifton/Morenci and the Copper Mines and Railroads. Freeport McMoRan is the biggest employer of Morenci and Clifton to this day, and the Morenci Mine is one of the largest copper mines in the world. So it goes without saying that mining plays a big role in the history of these places. And hey, where there’s copper, there’s gotta be a way to transport the copper, right? Come on down to this lecture to hear more of the specifics from Dick. 3 p.m. Sunday, March 1. Southern Arizona Transportation Museum, 414 N. Toole Ave. Free.

Precious Guru (free screening). This documentary tells of the life and legacy of Padmasambhava, the eighth-century Indian yogi who carried Buddhism over the Himalayas into Tibet. The story is told by people from three continents, and has been passed on for centuries. Once barely known outside of the Himalayas, Padmasambhava’s story grew worldwide after the Chinese takeover of Tibet in 1959.

This screening also includes a post-film Q&A with director Marc Wennberg. 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 1. 3233 E. Speedway Blvd. Free.

Winter Chamber Music Festival. This week of music put on by the Arizona Friends of Chamber Music is unique in that it features both well-known pieces and unexplored compositions.

For example, Australian composer Ross Edwards is premiering a new commission that includes instrumentation for the pipa, a four-stringed Chinese instrument. Russian-born composer, pianist and poet Lera Auerbach is also premiering a musical interpretation of winter, as part of a Four Seasons series. There’s so much to see, and none of it should be missed! Sunday, March 1, to Sunday, March 8. Shows are at 7:30 p.m. every day except Sundays, when they are at 3 p.m. Leo Rich Theater, 260 S. Church Ave. On Saturday, March 7, a gala is taking place at 6 p.m. at the Arizona Inn, 2200 E. Elm St., instead of a standard concert. $30 per day or $10 for students, or $120 for five shows. Gala is $180.

UA Breaks Ground on Tech Park at The Bridges

Posted By on Fri, Feb 28, 2020 at 11:16 AM

On Thursday, Feb. 27, the University of Arizona broke ground on The Refinery, the first building at UA’s Tech Park at The Bridges. The Refinery will be four-stories and 120,000 square feet, and is expected to serve as an example of the technology-driven workspace found at the Tech Park at The Bridges. The building is planned to be completed in summer 2021.

“This will be a place for innovators to take advantage of our established programming, and work in a new environment with state of the art resources,” said Eric Smith, executive director for the UA Center for Innovation, at the groundbreaking. “This will also be a place for entrepreneurs to meet with other entrepreneurs, as well as those in established companies. These collisions will create opportunities for learning and entrepreneurial thinking. Those who choose to learn and work here at The Bridges will certainly be supported.”

UA has committed 50 percent of The Refinery’s space for commercialization and innovation of small-to-midsize tech-focused businesses. Activities housed at The Refinery will include the UA Applied Research Corporation, the UA’s cyberoperations program, new offices for Tech Launch Arizona, and space for students and faculty.

“What we have the opportunity to do, not only with a building like this, but with a location like this, is to accelerate the pace at which research has impact,” said Betsy Cantwell, senior vice president for research and innovation at UA. “So for us that’s meaningful; it’s meaningful for our students who want to participate in an institution that has impact; it’s meaningful for our faculty who more and more want to do research that has impact. They do not want to occupy their ivory tower, they do not want to look at a narrow problem for their entire career. They want to have the opportunity to have impact. And this is the place where that will happen.”

The Refinery is part of the 20-acre “Technology Zone” within the 65-acre Tech Park at The Bridges. Long-term development plans for the Technology Zone include up to five office and lab buildings for public, private and academic users. Other Tech Park zones are the University Zone, which will house academic “centers of excellence”; the Business Zone, designed for large technology companies; and the Corporate Zone, which allows corporations to become anchor tenants of the tech park.

UA’s Tech Park itself is part of the larger 350-acre mixed-use development project that includes a Costco, Walmart and Cinemark movie theater.

City council member Richard Fimbres described this expansion as part of the ongoing “Renaissance of the South side.”

“Today, with this groundbreaking, we now have all aspects of the Tucson Marketplace at The Bridges under construction,” Fimbres said.

Fimbres also highlighted the benefit of Tech Park at The Bridges’ location, being roughly three miles from the UA campus, as well as a five-minute drive from downtown and a five-minute drive from the Tucson airport.

In addition to The Refinery’s groundbreaking, UA also announced the street names throughout the Tech Park at The Bridges. Catalyst Drive will be the main passage through the park, with streets like “Tomorrow” and “Innovate” branching throughout. The Refinery will be located at the corner of Idea Street and Catalyst Drive.

“I’ve been in a lot of communities where the innovation ecosystem is just beginning to bubble up, and I will say, in my estimation, that’s exactly what’s happening in Tucson right now,” Cantwell said.

For the UA, and the Tucson community in general, the Tech Park at The Bridges is a long time coming. UA sought partial funding for the development via an economic development proposition in 2015, which ultimately failed. Construction is now overseen by UA’s development partner The Boyer Company, which is headquartered in Salt Lake City and also maintains an office in Phoenix.

“We see this new park as another catalyst and driver for university-based economic development in the region, a place where new ideas are incubated and businesses are formed, a place where university innovation can move at the speed of business,” said Carol Stewart, associate vice president for Tech Parks Arizona.

The Tech Park at The Bridges’ long-term plan calls for 1.8 million square feet of “developed office and laboratory space” that could support between 7,000 to 10,000 employees.

“This is going to be the catalyst that helps put us on the map to simply make the world a better place,” said UA president Robert C. Robbins. “We have to have great professors, we have to have fundamental discovery, and investment and basic science, but not stop there, to transplant those discoveries into commercializable products and companies to build our economy. It’s part of our responsibility as the University of Arizona.”

Taco Sauce Releases Two New Songs

Posted By on Fri, Feb 28, 2020 at 9:24 AM

Taco Sauce, Tucson's favorite femme-friendly Sabbath-worshipping punk band, just dropped two new tracks: "Good News" and "Kick Rocks" ahead of a multi-state tour starting March 1. While the new songs contain the same confrontational vocal style and energetic instrumentation, they also feature a welcome change in production that keeps Taco Sauce from treading the same ground. 

This new sound particularly shines in “Good News,” which opens with psychedelic layering before taking off with aggressive drums and jerky guitar. While venturing in new directions, vocalist Gabi Montoya continues to show her prowess in delivering surfy punk melodies which made their debut EP so much fun.

“Good News is about coming to terms with leaving religion,” Montoya said. “I was Christian until I was about 22 and the mental/emotional trauma that resulted from feeling lied to and manipulated my whole life inspired me to liken God to an abusive partner or parent. I had to take a lot of Bible classes in college and I can probably list every abusive or murderous crime the Judeo-Christian God committed against his own creation. After being judged by Christians for years, this was me finally saying, ‘ok you know what? I think I would actually rather go to hell than spend eternity with you judgmental assholes’.”

“Kick Rocks” is less adventurous, with a doomy distorted bass line paying clear homage to their Black Sabbath/Led Zeppelin/The Sword/Thee Oh Sees inspirations. But this doesn’t make the angular guitar melodies or abrupt pauses any less powerful.

“Kicks Rocks came to mind after hearing of several instances of white people calling the police on black people for innocuous things like barbecuing or hanging out in Starbucks. Also, being a woman and getting harassed all the time provides a wealth of songwriting material,” Montoya said.

Suffice to say these two new tracks work as great appetizers for the new directions Taco Sauce is headed in, while maintaining the heavy and sarcastic tones that made them win Tucson’s best punk band in Best of Tucson two years in a row.

Listen to the new songs on Taco Sauce’s bandcamp. After their Kick Rocks tour concludes, Taco Sauce will play at Club Congress on Wednesday, March 18.
