HE'S BACK: It's going to happen anyway so you might as well enjoy the flash in the pants. Leaning back on yesteryear, Van Morrison will bring his decades of rock inovation to the stage at the Greek Theatre at UC Berkeley on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. So turn on your lighters and bust out your flips flops for the spiritual journey down memory lane. Tickets are available thanks to our friends at Yahoo.
GO HIPPIE: Want to live as long as Pete Seeger? All you have to do is give up all the crap you eat and become a toe flapping hippie who eats Grape Nuts. If you can't do that, you can at least live vicariously through the old man at his 90 birthday celebration at the San Jose Library on Saturday. Check out the library's Web site for more info.
HOLLYWOOD DISH BUT FUNNY: As long as the make ups on you have nothing to worry. And she is actually quite funny when Chewie isn't around. The darling of E! television, Chelsea Handler, will bring her comedy musings to the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts, 255 Almaden Blvd., in San Jose. You can get your tickets from Yahoo once again.
WE ALL HAVE GROWING PAINS: Don't judge the man just because his dad is Alan Thicke. And don't hate him just because he is better looking than both you and me, makes a lot more money and can sing his lungs out. The eclectic Robin Thicke will cerenade the Paramount Theater, 2025 Broadway, in Oakland Sunday at 7:30 p.m. And apparently the Paramount is big enough to house Thicke and Jennifer Hudson because guess what. She'll be there. Get your tickets from Tickets Now.
R&B BEHIND THE VEIL: So what if you've never heard of him. Lord knows you heard what he's written. Rahsaan Patterson will bring his R&B beats and his resume of hit songs he wrote for artists such as Tevin Campbell and Brandy to Yoshi's San Francisco on Sunday. Treat yourself to awesome sushi and a good show.
WE ALL LOVE POLAND: Need an excuse to fake an accent for a day? Then you might want to dust off that fake Polish one because the Polish Festival is kicking off at the San Francisco County Fair Building, 9th Avenue at Lincoln Way, in San Francisco at 11 a.m. on Sunday. Treat yourself to dancing, music and big, gigantic sausages. Sweet. For more information check out the festival's Web site.
