Tuesday Tunes
The popular summer concerts in front of the Bankhead Theater are coming back to downtown Livermore. A family-friendly weekly concert and performance series “Tuesday Tunes with a Twist”, will be produced by the Livermore Cultural Arts Council (LCAC) in conjunction with The Bankhead Theater, on the Shea Homes Stage in front of the Bankhead Theater, 2400 First Street in Livermore. The first concert will kick off Tuesday July 22 at 6:45 pm with a performance by Suzanna Spring & The Surly Jack@sses, a group of amazing and versatile Bay area players: Paul Schimmelman on bass, Art Thompson from Guitar Player magazine on electric guitar, with drummer Joe O’Loughlin, pedal steel player John Gay, and violinist Jim Hurley. The band adds groove, grit, killer solos and harmonies to Spring’s brooding lyrics and earworm melodies. Suzanna Spring & The Surly Jack@sses were featured performers on the SonyCity stage in 2013 at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, and continue to bring their roots rock / California jangle pop sound to festivals, clubs and places where cool original music is appreciated.

Catherine Ndungu-Case, LCAC’s volunteer manager of the schedule comments "Everybody I have talked to is so excited about getting these concerts going again. It has been hard work for our team but I think it will be well worth the effort."

Absolutely No Alcohol Will Be Allowed outside of the permitted restaurant areas because the Livermore Police Department is now strictly enforcing the ordinance on public alcohol possession and consumption through its alcohol safety and awareness program.

"Tuesday Tunes with a Twist" will bring you 11 presentations, including groups that performed last year and added groups that feature some of Livermore’s own cultural arts organizations. There is a an eclectic mix of cultural programming from LCAC groups, ranging from an interactive African drum circle (Cheza Nami), folkloric dance from the Hispanic Heritage Center, a six-piece jazz band (Secret Tattoo) featuring Livermore-Amador Symphony Nick James on bass and a concert from the Pleasanton Community Band directed by Bob Williams. Returning bands include LunaFish with a Woodstock rock sound, Audio Illusion mixing rock, blues and pop tunes from the past and the smooth jazz music of Azure Affinity. New groups include the exciting and colorful Japanese drum group Eden Aoba Taiko and a Hawaiian cultural preservation group Halau Makana Lani. The series ends September 30.

Splash and Dash
The 3rd annual Tri-Valley Kid’s Splash and Dash #2 presented by the Tri-Valley Triathlon Club, is set to take place again with its new and improved spectator friendly course on the morning of September 7 beginning at 8:30a.m.

On July 20, TVTC held the first part of this summer series with the new route at the Dolores Bengtson Aquatic Center, 4455 Black Ave, Pleasanton. The pool swim and new run course added to the excitement, fun and safety the athletes had. The new run course ended with a professional runner’s chute and finish arch for the kids to run through. Each child was announced and photographed as he or she crossed the finished line. They were then presented with a finisher’s medal, and the excitement did not end there. There was a sponsor’s expo area, raffle, game booths, free ice cream and podium photo opportunity to make every athlete feel like a champion.

The Splash and Dash Series is a swim/run event that introduces youth ages 5-15 to the sport of triathlon. The focus of the event is on participation rather than competition. This is a non-competitive event with no times taken. Every participant receives a USAT Splash and Dash finisher’s medal and t-shirt. This is one of 40 USA Triathlon sanctioned Splash and Dash events across the country.

The event is made possible by their wonderful sponsors like Tri-Valley Triathlon Club, 6 Fifteen Cyclery and many more. They are still accepting sponsorships as well as seeking volunteers to help the day of the event. . More details of the event including a youth training program for the Splash and Dash series can be found at www.tvtckidssplashanddash.com .

Rigoletto - Livermore Valley Opera
Rigoletto was written by Verdi as a social commentary on a corrupt and abusive nobility. It is a masterpiece that presents a moving and multifaceted story, juxtaposing good and evil; beauty and disfigurement, purity and promiscuity; honesty and deceit, as well as loyalty and betrayal. The gripping drama is matched by powerful melodies and dramatic orchestration, as well as some of the most compelling arias in all of opera.

Nostalgia Day Car Show
For twenty four years the Altamont Cruisers has held its Nostalgia Day Car Show on the streets of downtown Livermore, where the show has grown to display 700+ muscle cars, street rods, custom and classic cars and draws over 10,000 spectators annually. Our motto has always been "Cruisers Against Drugs", and our annual Nostalgia Day Car Show has allowed us to prove that we mean it. To date, this fundraiser has enabled us to donate over $350,000 for local organizations that promote the Tri-Valley youth, help strengthen their families and help keep kids off drugs.

If you would like to become an Altamont Cruiser and be a part of our annual Nostalgia Day, our club welcomes fellow car enthusiasts. In addition to helping local charities, our club offers many social events and members attend car shows and other activities together. Membership Application

We truly appreciate your support, and look forward to seeing you again this year.

Meet the Authors of "An Atomic Live Story" Sept 7
Sunday

2:00pm

Main Library

Meet the authors of An Atomic Love Story: The Extraordinary Women in Robert Oppenheimer’s Life on Sunday, September 7, 2014 at 2pm at the Livermore Public Library Civic Center, 1188 S. Livermore Avenue. Shirley Streshinsky and Patricia Klaus will talk about their book and their research into Robert Oppenheimer and his loves. There is no charge for this event.

An Atomic Love Story was a finalist in the Northern California Book Awards in the General Non-Fiction category.

An Atomic Love Story is also one of the ‘Top 13 Bay Area Books of 2013′ on San Jose Mercury News and Contra Costa Times book reviewer Georgia Rowe’s list.

What is it about Robert that made people fall in love with him? Set against a dramatic backdrop of war, spies, and nuclear bombs, An Atomic Love Story unveils a vivid new view of a tumultuous era and one of its most important figures. In the early decades of the 20th century, three highly ambitious women found their way to the West Coast, where each was destined to collide with the young Oppenheimer, the enigmatic physicist whose work in creating the atomic bomb would forever impact modern history. His first and most intense love was for Jean Tatlock, though he married the tempestuous “Kitty” Harrison—a member of the Communist party—and was rumored to have had a scandalous affair with the brilliant Ruth Sherman Tolman, ten years his senior and the wife of another celebrated physicist. Though the three women were connected through their relationship with Oppenheimer, their experiences reflect important changes in the lives of American women in the 20th century: the conflict between career and marriage; the need for a woman to define herself independently; experimentation with sexuality; and the growth of career opportunities.

Beautifully written and superbly researched through a rich collection of firsthand accounts, this intimate portrait reveals the tragedies, betrayals and romances of an alluring man and three bold women, revealing how they pushed to the very forefront of social and cultural changes in a fascinating, volatile era.
