Go Ahead, Cry For Me

High-heeled, sharp-suited, refined, acrobatic, and 20 times harder than it looks: This is the Argentine tango. The long-running Bay Area tradition of Luis Bravo's Forever Tango, with its cast of deadly perfect Argentinean pitchers, catchers, sharp knees, and thrown-back heads, was one of the inspirations for a 10-year-old girl from the Bay Area a few seasons ago, and she went on to become a regular on Dancing With the Stars, among other accomplishments including running her own studio, Cheryl Burke Dance. This year, the little girl, quite grown up, joins the show that so dazzled her. You have to be very grown up to do the tango, too: “sensual” is code for “Perfectly OK for kids, but for adults who know what 'that look' means, um, yowch hot!” The show's NYE performance includes a series of opulent dinner and meet-Cheryl options, but all shows include yowch hot and the mean Argentines.
Dec. 21-24; Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Dec. 21. Continues through Jan. 9, 2010

    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
