Re: “Arts Marketplace

The new exhibition with Mary Theresa Dietz is wonderful. Mary Theresa Dietz paints mostly with oil sticks, but she also creates encaustic painting, sculpture, printmaking, and drawing. Her subjects are mainly animals. Sometimes she likes to combine different types of animals and animals with humans. Her influences include folk art, pre-Columbian, ancient Egyptian, and ancient European art, German expressionism, the Fauves, animals and the natural world, and her subconscious.
Please stop by Thursday, Friday or Saturday 11 AM - 7 PM

Re: “Rialto Theatre

Bad Religion brought the house down at the Rialto Theatre last night. Knowing very little of the music and history of the band did note dissuade me from attending what I consider the best Rialto performance in 2010. Not sure if that means I need to get out more often or just listen to punk rock on a regular basis. Regardless, the members of BR have been touring for more than 25 years. Their sound is tight, loud and direct. There were very few mishaps in the performance, although some songs off the new album created a lull in the crowd, creating a well deserved rest for those brave souls in the mosh pit. The crowd was raucous as ever and the band kept it's rhythmic, thumping, swirling grooves at a fist pumping rate. All while diving in and out of double bass drum kicking beats and looping punk rock riffs sprinkled with enough heavy chunks of loud guitar wailing to keep the entire audience awake for a good 2 - 3 hours after the show with the continual ringing in the ears of those Tucsonans that were brave enough to attend a Monday night punk rock show in the historic Rialto theater.

Re: “The Drawing Studio

A friendly and supportive environment where artists of all skill levels (and would-be poseurs like yours truly) get together to create art. Despite its name, the Drawing Studio supports all kinds of visual arts, from painting and sculpture to collage and encaustic print making. They have classes on all manner of topics, host regular drop-in figure drawing sessions (currently $10 for three hours), and generally promote artists and exhibits throughout the area.

The best thing about the Studio is the quality of people it's managed to attract. Talented and skilled artists bump elbows with scratchers like me, and you can learn some of the intangibles of technique and composition simply by watching how different people approach, say, the same pose in a live figure drawing.

The physical environment is challenging at time, but that's the only real downside I've found with The Drawing Studio. The figure drawing sessions (especially Sunday mornings) are so popular that you need to arrive early to get the best viewing position, and sometimes things like heat in the winter or AC in the summer aren't exactly industrial strength. But those are minor compared to the benefits.

If you want to ease into art, I can't recommend this place more highly. Low-stress classes (the kind you attend to learn things, not to get a degree or certificate), friendly staff and patrons, and regular opportunities to practice your drawing chops make this a great booster for the arts in and around Tucson.

Re: “Brat's Bar & Grill

We went there last month and checked out the band, Section 8 Trio. The place was sorta laid back but the band was hot. The bartender was great, the place was clean.
I reccomend you should check it out especially if those guys are playing there!!

Re: “Nimbus Bistro and Brewery

I'm the non beer drinker in our group and if a brew pub can keep me as happy as the rest of the bunch, it's a great place.

Their version of the mojito is excellent- plenty of fresh muddled mint and a slice of orange, quite strong and not too sweet but intensely flavored.

Another plus- their beer battered fish and chips arrives at the table hot and crisp and the wait staff cheerfully substituted sweet potato fries for the usual ones.

Re: “Boondocks Lounge

At the sign of the Big Bottle they have the finest unpretentious music venue in town. Great musicians (mostly local, but some blues stars also turn up), a well-used dance floor, pool tables, no pseudos, no pressure to drink. They also put on rockin' benefit performances when the need arises; does that make 'em Boondocks saints?

Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

Skybox's atmosphere and entertainment are far better than expected for a Tucson watering hole and dance place. The bands on Friday and Saturday evening play oldies and pop and are the best dancing with class Tucson has had to offer in a long time. The servers are very professional and friendly. The food is of good quality and the price is not bad. It far exceeds places on Tanque Verde, Swan and Ft. Lowell, Campbell and River or Campbell and Skyline as a place for professionals to meet on Friday evening.
