TGIF 6: Spazmatics

by The Editors on July 24, 2017

It’s difficult for many of us to get our heads around the fact that 80s hits are now technically golden oldies, but don’t let that stop you from getting your dancing shoes out for a rip roaring good time with The Spazmatics as Carlsbad’s TGIF Concerts In The Parks moves to Calavera Hills Park on Friday, July 28, 2017.

All the awesome sounds, styles and way cool dance steps from the 1980s decade we’d love to forget. Complete with skinny ties, Brill Creamed hair and horn-rimmed glasses, The Spazmatics recapture all the best of the worst. Outstanding musicianship combined with creative flair and style makes for an evening of pure energy and entertainment. 

Remember to bring low-back chairs, snacks, and a little neon, hi-viz gear for full flavor. Show starts at 6 PM. Calavera Hills Park, is located at 2997 Glasgow Dr. at the corner of Carlsbad Village Drive. Shuttle service operates between 4:30 and 9 p.m. from Sage Creek High School (3900 Cannon Road).

Lancer Dancers Offer Dance Camp Scholarships

by The Editors on July 18, 2017

Elementary and middle school kids who love to dance, or aspire to try out for dance or cheer squads in the future, are invited to brush up on their dance skills this summer with the Carlsbad High School Varsity Dance Team. The 12-time National Champion Lancer Dancers will be holding a Junior Lancer Dancer summer camp from Aug. 15 through 18 at Carlsbad High School from 9 a.m. to noon each day.

The team will be offering scholarships to qualified families to attend their Junior Lancer Dancer camp. Scholarships will be awarded based on HUD guidelines for low income families in San Diego County. Families that do not qualify can attend the summer camp for a donation of $125.

“We believe all children should be able to take dance classes, no matter what their income level is,” says Rachel Whitehead, the team’s Scholarship Coordinator. “We want to share our passion for dance with community youth that may not have the same opportunities that we have.”

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.
