TGIF 5: Feufollet

by The Editors on July 17, 2017

Don’t miss your last chance for music in Poinsettia Community Park on Friday July 21, 2017 as Carlsbad’s TGIF Concerts In The Parks presents the cajun sounds of Feufollet.

While Feufollet remains central to the neo-traditionalist brush fire they helped ignite as youths, their album, En Couleurs found the band coming into its own and pushing the envelope, leading the way once again as Cajun music extends itself into a new century. It was praised by the New York Times, Garden & Gun and Elvis Costello who proclaimed “En Couleurs is the most beautifully melodic album I’ve heard all year.” 

Poinsettia Community Park is located 6600 Hidden Valley Road in Carlsbad, California. Parking shuttle service operates between 4:30 to 9 p.m. from North Coast Calvary Chapel, 1330 Poinsettia Lane.

TGIF 4: The Routine

by The Editors on July 10, 2017

Got plans this Friday night? Sure you do. Carlsbad’s TGIF Concerts In The Parks hits up Poinsettia Community Park again on July 14, 2007 with some real deal, rocking’ soul with San Diego, California’s The Routine.

The Routine is a five-piece rock collective from San Diego that defies categorization in today’s genre-driven media cloud. A sonic melting pot of electric blues, soul and world styling, they are not simply a band. And they are anything but “routine”. Russell Ramo, guitar player and son of Syrian immigrants, explains, “Just by looking at us, you see the story of global artistic culture: Black, White, European, Middle Eastern and Latino. We epitomize diversity and the strength of its unity.” 

Poinsettia Community Park is located 6600 Hidden Valley Road in Carlsbad, California. Parking shuttle service operates between 4:30 to 9 p.m. from North Coast Calvary Chapel, 1330 Poinsettia Lane.

Having Our Say At NVA Theatre

by The Editors on April 27, 2017

The Delany sisters invite you into their home to share a home-cooked meal in remembrance of their father’s birthday. As they reminisce about their long and storied lives, they will take you on a remarkable and enlightening journey through the last hundred years of America’s history… through Reconstruction, the rise of Jim Crow, two world wars, the celebratory rise of the Harlem Renaissance, and past the civil rights and women’s rights movements, their story becomes not only a story of African American women, but a story of America itself.

HAVING OUR SAY is based on the bestselling book by Amy Hill Hearth, which remained on the New York Times bestseller list for 105 weeks, and has sold over 5 million copies.

Legoland Tickets At A Reasonable Price

by The Editors on March 22, 2016

Tickets are now on sale for the one (partial) day each year when Legoland is arguably worth the price of admission. April 23, 2016 is Carlsbad Day at Legoland thanks to the Carlsbad Educational Foundation. This means that if you buy tickets in advance from the Carlsbad Education Foundation you can get a partial day (1 PM to 8 PM) entry to Legoland for $35. In addition, “a percentage of ticket sales” will help fund “enriching STEM programs” (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) that the Carlsbad Unified School District is apparently unable to provide to the students of our fair city.

In other words, if you’d like to help the Carlsbad Educational Foundation help the students of a school district that can’t figure out how to provide the education Carlsbad kids deserve and visit an overpriced theme park for a reasonable price then please, Click here to purchase your tickets.
