Art Hounds: Saving the planet, one show at a time

This weekend has a little something for everyone. Tomorrow night Brave New Workshop opens its latest improv show “Save the Planet; Yes we can, but do we have to?” It’s a send-up of post-election lassitude and all issues in the shade of green.

If you’re feeling the old political protest spirit move you, I hope you already have tickets to see folk singer Arlo Guthrie perform at the Fitzgerald Theater tonight in St. Paul. I say “hope” because last I heard the box office was sold out.

Elsewhere in the world of music, Sommerfest gets underway Friday, with a wide array of free concerts on Peavey Plaza, as well as an evening of Strauss and Mozart in Orchestra Hall.

Also, local band The Melismatics perform Friday night at The Entry along with guests Sick of Sarah.

It’s also a great weekend for dance. You can see new dance works by Vanessa Voskuil and Sachiko Nishiuchi as part of Momentum: New Dance Works at the Southern Theater (the series continues next weekend with works by Sally Rousse and Megan Mayer).

If that isn’t enough for you, head over to the Ritz Theater to see “Reeling Over Love” by the dance group Eclectic Edge Ensemble. It runs tonight through Sunday.

Finally, Intermedia Arts presents an Art Car show and workshop Saturday at Midtown Global Market in Minneapolis. Note: Art bikes are also welcome.
