Zuo Bao_tv: Journey to the East Within

1078 Gallery

Is there a way to tune into a transmission that comes from within? What does that look like? You’ll have to cruise over to the 1078 Gallery to find out. It’s a head-scratcher of a two person show, featuring the works of local arts-makers David “Dragonboy” Sutherland and Micah Black. On the walls through March 24. Reception this Saturday, March 9, 5-8 p.m.

Grease – The Musical

CUSD Center for the Arts

California Regional Theatre’s got groove, it’s got meaning, it’s got this classic musical featuring a soundtrack of tunes paying tribute to the early days of rock-’n’-roll. Two of the four shows in the closing weekend area already sold out! Get your tickets now for the Saturday, March 9 performances, 2 p.m. & 7:30 p.m. Tickets: $27-$40.

Artistic Alchemy & Lives Behind the Labels

Museum of Northern California Art (MONCA)
900 Esplanade

Two new exhibits showing for just two weeks at MONCA. Artistic Alchemy features assemblages and cell-phone photography by Chico artist Elizabeth Newman Kuiper. And Lives Behind the Labels is a collaborative exhibit examining the lives and viewpoints of Chico’s youth in shelters and homeless adults camping on the streets by painter Christine MacShane, documentary filmmaker Chris Smith and media specialist Dori Moura. Reception for both Friday, March 8, 6 p.m.

Blu Egyptian

The Commons Social Empourium
2412 Park Ave

Chico’s gotta jam. That’s just the way it’s always been and always will be. Thankfully, we have Blu Egyptian, a high-energy quartet of young players bringing new life to old grooves. It’s still crunchy enough for grey-heads, but the dudes also also turn it up and rock out enough to keep things interesting for everyone else. This next gig should be a doozy, a free, all-ages, outdoor show at The Commons’ new outdoor amphitheater, Saturday, March 9, 7 p.m.

Les Lullies

Les Lullies (France)

Duffy’s Tavern
337 Main St.

Spring forward! What to do with a little extra sunlight on a Sunday night? Get sloppy with Les Lullies, a raucous four-piece from Montpellier, France. Locals West Ghost and The Chemicals open March 10, 7:30 p.m., at Chico’s favorite local water hole, Duffy’s Tavern. $10 at the door.
