What Are You Listening To This Weekend?

What are you listening to this weekend?

If you're drawing a blank like me, let us suggest starting with Dr. Nic Reveles and "San Diego Opera Matters" on XLNC1 104.9 FM or online on Saturday at 9 AM PST. This week's topic? "La traviata - Verdi grows up." We'll do everything in our power to sleep through this show, not because we don't think it's a wonderful program, but truth be told we're tired and really hope we can sleep in a bit.

Besides, XLNC1 podcasts these programs so I can always catch it at 10 AM if the dogs allow me a morning to snooze. Fat chance!

After that, the only real listening plan we have is the broadcast of Romeo and Juliet on Sunday, March 28, 2010 at 7 PM PST on XLNC1 (104.9 FM or online for those with short attention spans). This will be the broadcast of the Sunday performance, which was the hottest one of the run and truly a moment that all involved should be proud of. If you missed Romeo you really don't want to miss this. If you saw Romeo any night other than Sunday, tune in - it'll remind you why the live arts are so wonderful and that performances differ from night to night.

It is supposed to be beautiful this weekend so we might walk down 30th to hit up the San Diego Indie Music Fest on Saturday in North Park but I'm clearly out of touch as the only band I know out of the list is Metric.

We'll also burn through some records we picked up over the week including Thao + the Get Down Stay Down and My Tiger My Timing while napping in the hammock. We're happy we installed some new outdoor speakers in the backyard. Apologies to the neighbors. Not really.

But when it comes to operas to listen to, we're drawing a blank. So share your listening plans and a recommendation for next week's opera.

And make it wonderful one!
