1) Come one, come all, to SAMA on Sunday, March 2 at 1 and 3 p.m., for performances of The Complete Fragments of Menander, an edu-tainment play written and directed by the Current’s very own theater critic, Willy Razavi. And if you think that’s shameless self-promotion, get a load of this: I’m also going to be in it. Playing a man
. So really, it would be selfish of me not to share this information with you, my beloved theater community — how often does the chance come along to criticize the performance of a critic? I can hear you sharpening your red pencils now … be sure to post your reviews on Chisme Libre!
2) KRTU’s annual spring fund drive is going down from tomorrow, February 22, through Friday, February 29. I know you hate to have your jazz interrupted by pitches, so donate all of your money tomorrow! I’ll be on the air on Thursday, the 28th, starting at about 10 or 10:30 a.m. to talk about my glorious experiences as a KRTU intern (it made me all that I am today!) and to represent your favorite alt-weekly. Should you stay tuned from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., your eardrums will be caressed by the music of SA Jazz Workshop (which, in the interest of full disclosure, features the Current’s design director Chuck Kerr on the drums). Remember San Antonio, without U, it’s just KRT.
3) Oh, Erik Bosse. You and I have pretty much been communicating via vanity googling for the past, I don’t know, nine months? (Then there were a few bland electronic exchanges about photos for the 48-hour Film Fest. Talk about an elephant in the room, er, email.) I figure you’ll find this post by vanity googling, too. Anyway, at the risk of sounding too You’ve Got Mail, I think we should meet. I’d love to hear more of your thoughts on our coverage; I’m sure I’ve got loads to learn from you. So I’ll be at Ruta Maya on Saturday, March 1, at noon. Drop by if you can. Just promise you won’t say “girl reporter,” OK?
