The city has no shortage of big Broadway-type productions in gorgeous old theaters. But, often it's the indie theater little guys who deserve, want, and need the support of the masses. We're looking forward to these three upcoming solo shows performed by our talented and funny female brethren:
Marilyn Pittman is a great actress. Her one-woman solo performance It's All the Rage impressively balances comedy with tragedy in a compelling and hilarious (yes, hilarious) rendition of murder-suicide.
Fans of reggae music will not want to miss the latest film detailing the life of the genre’s undeniably biggest luminary, Bob Marley.
The beloved Bay to Breakers is fast approaching on Sunday, May 20. The 12km race is a little under 7½ miles, and whether you plan to run, walk, or be dragged in a shopping cart (oh wait, you can’t do that anymore) you’ll need the proper kicks to power you through and complement your killer costume.
I’m pissed. It was a great day. Until Muni made it suck.
Spending six hours in a car to Tahoe is a drag, and certainly not uncommon with traffic, chain control, and blizzards. In the same amount of time (in fact, a bit less), you could be chilling out or tearing down a slope in Big Sky, Montana.

A huge benefit of attending a conference, event, or a meetup is the networking opportunities, but have humans forgotten how to interact face to face?
It’s that time of year again when South by Southwest buzzes all over the airwaves and web waves to everyone’s delight (or possibly chagrin). The nine-day event kicked off today with the Interactive portion and, as expected, the Bay Area has a more than healthy presence here in Austin. But a three hour-line for badge pick-up? How high tech is that?
