You can celebrate the July 4th weekend with a British invasion by watching a special screening of the Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night at Zinema 2 on Friday and then see American English, a Beatles tribute band, at Big Top Chautauqua on Saturday.

Of course, there’s a big concert and fireworks down at Bayfront on Friday.

How do you deal with a break up? Well, if you’re Rachael Kilgour you sing sad songs and invite people to a concert at the Teatro Zuccone on Saturday.

There’s a series of Classic Rock Laser Light Shows at the UMD Planetarium tonight, tomorrow, and Wednesday. Tonight kicks off with “Dark Side of the Moon.”

Charlie Parr appears at the Underground on Tuesday in a new series of music and conversation shows called “Song, Interrupted.” It’s like a concert with liner notes.

We’re updating this as new albums are announced. There is also a post cataloging Duluth albums released in the 1900s, by the way. We might create posts to fill in the years in between, but only if we’re feeling super geeky … which you can probably count on.

This week: iron sculpting, divine sex and hair cuts

  

Here’s a sampling of what you have to look forward to this week on the PDD Calendar.

Where can you learn about making beer, flat track roller derby, and Norse deities getting busy with it? Nerd Nite, of course, all on Tuesday night at the Teatro Zuccone.

Make clever puns about “irony” at the Duluth Art Institute‘s Iron Casting Seminar starting on Wednesday.

See the premier of The Cabin, a new play written by local playwright Caity Shea Violette, at the Play Ground running Thursday, Friday, and Saturday this week and next.

Storyteller Kevin Kling is coming to Duluth this week and you can see him Friday night at the Marshall Performing Arts Center with Simone Perrin and you can see him Thursday night reading his book, Big Little Brother, with illustrator Chris Monroe at Glensheen Mansion.

Rachael Kilgour sings songs. Adeline Wright cuts hair. And now the celebrated couple team up on stage to sing songs and cut hair! Will the zany fun never end? We hope not! See them this Saturday at the Teatro Zuccone.

So what are you doing this week? Can we tag along? Any upcoming events that you want to promote? Let us know!`
