Congratulations to local musician and promoter Fred Lara for a successful round one of his Punk-o-thon. Five bands — three local and two from San Diego — each played a set, and the event was attended by more than 80 fans of punk.
Round two of the punk show will take place July 27 at the Old Post Office Pavilion in El Centro. Tickets will be available at the door for $4, and the concert again will feature a mix of local and visiting entertainers. The first set will begin at 7 p.m. All ages are welcome.
This weekend at the OPOP we will be offering a live drama titled "David and Lisa." This play focuses on the developing relationship between the two title characters, who meet while attending a special school for the mentally disturbed in New York City.
Directed by Billy J. Brown, it features a predominantly teen-age cast. Admission is $5 at the door, and the play will start at 7 p.m. both Friday and Saturday nights.
