Eastside Weekend: Sunday night Flamenco; mini spring music fest; Selena tribute



Within the walls of El Cid clack and stomp the sounds of flamenco. The dinner theater tradition, hosted on Sunday by Angelita Concierto, will feature dancer extraordinaire Juan Talavera. This go around at El Cid is an early show at 5 p.m., so christen the night with dance and maybe stay for a drink. Sunday, March 29.

Bike Talk and Feminist Library on Wheels will conduct a literary tour of Highland Park and South Pasadena, with stops at Book Show, The Pop-Hop and The Battery Books and Music. The day will start off at noon with a presentation on feminism and cycling with activist Jacqueline Moor, then a chat with poet Jacqueline Suskin and finally a short bike ride to South Pasadena. Kick your bike tires and make sure nothing falls off before you head out on Sunday at noon.
A miniature music festival, you say? Panache Spring Fling? Are these words used to describe specialty cupcakes or simply a full day of music at The Echo? The whole mess will be headlined by White Fence, crooning along like it’s the end of the world, and Dutchman Jacco Gardner has a few choice words for the lineup, including The Entrance Band, Twerps, Happyness, Ultimate Painting, Endless Bummer (of Permanent Records fame), Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders and Dreamboys. Phew, what a day. Thank goodness that’s over. Oh wait! It’s Saturday, March 28.
Twenty years ago Tejano sensation Selena was murdered, but her legacy lives on with A Tribute to Selena at La Plaza this Friday. The event will feature karaoke, paper flower workshop, and a microphone bedazzle lesson that will surely set the mood. The evening will be capped off with a screening of the film “Selena” and guests are encouraged to come dressed in their best Selena inspired outfit. Friday, March 27 and Free!
