Blade Runner (Ridley Scott, 1982) adopts the noir style as it evokes the not-so-distant “futurescape” of Los Angeles, a dystopian city-world corroded by acid rain. Harrison Ford plays Deckard, a hunter of replicants, androids created to look “more human than human.” Their quest for a longer life span brings them to Earth, where they become a challenge to Deckard’s abilities and his ethical boundaries. Selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, Blade Runner is now regarded as one of the best science fiction films ever made.   ($5 - $10)

The tour is in support of Robert Plant’s lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar, which was released September 2014 on Nonesuch/Warner Bros. Records. The record was named one of the top 50 albums of the year by NPR, which said, “At 66, the singer is still a majestic rock presence, at peace with the legacy of his hard-rock-defining band Led Zeppelin, while remaining relentlessly creative in his solo work. But on his 10th solo album, Plant does pause by those waters to consider the aesthetic, emotional and spiritual currents that have shaped his illustrious life. He finds himself, characteristically, not saddened but renewed… Not one of these songs sounds precisely like its source; that's the genius of this album. It lovingly layers elements in ways that mirror memory, creating new constructs from floating shards of the musical past.”    ($54 - $84)

    Cogged Stones of Southern California  
  Dr. Steven R. James, CSU Fullerton  
  Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, 2559 Puesta del Sol Road, Santa Barbara CA

Cogged stones, uniquely occurring in southern California and in coastal Chile about 9,000 to 4,000 years ago, have long generated considerable interest and speculation regarding their enigmatic purpose. Are they utilitarian or ceremonial? Is their widely separated distribution related because of cultural contact or were cogged stones independently invented? Recent research sheds light on the function and geological sourcing of this mysterious artifact type.

2015 Women of Achievement Awards Luncheon  
  Sigrid Wright and Marilyn Tam  
  Santa Barbara Women's Club, 670 Mission Canyon Road, Santa Barbara CA
The Santa Barbara chapter of the Association for Women in Communications will once again honor two local women who excel in the communications realm on Wednesday, June 3. This year’s theme “Pioneers for Change: Communication, Community, Choice” fits the two honorees to a tee. Sigrid Wright manages the annual Earth Day Festival for the Community Environmental Council. Marilyn Tam wrote the internationally acclaimed book The Happiness Choice. “Nobody has to wait more than this moment to start making change,” Tam said. “Because you make change where ever you are with your choices. Whether it’s not using a straw, which is another piece of plastic, in your drink or choosing to eat cleaner so we don’t eat so high on the food chain, that’s something we can do today.” Both of these environmentally minded women began their lives in this country in Eugene, Oregon. Wright, a fifth generation Oregonian, earned a degree in journalism from the University of Oregon. Tam arrived in the United States from China to live with her sister, a student at that very university. Wright went on to receive her master's in Communications Design from the University of Baltimore. First thing upon her return to Eugene after graduation, she went skydiving. This marked a turning point for her. “My life feels like I’m strapped to a rocket ship,” Wright said. Last summer she escaped her email inbox by traveling to Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in the Brooks Range of Alaska. Wright used this trip as her way to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Wilderness Act, which protects areas where people visit but don’t remain. The day after her arrival home from this place so far off the grid none of her gadgets worked she strapped the rocket ship back on to present at a conference with 5,000 attendees. Like Wright, Tam uses speaking opportunities to leverage change for the most number of people possible. Recently Tam spoke to a crowd of 6,000. “Those 6,000 influencers are each going to talk to their 6,000 and then I really have a multiplying effect,” Tam said. Tam once went on her own pilgrimage to the ends of the earth. On the plane ride to the country of Bhutan Tam met the Minister of Home and Culture. She ended up working with government officials to transition the country into the 21st Century. Before television came to Bhutan WWF stood for World Wildlife Federation, within one year after TV arrived the country recognized the acronym as standing for World Wrestling Federation. “That is how fast change happened,” Tam said. Because of Tam’s efforts Bhutan retained their cultural and environmental heritage, and became a completely organic country.   ($50 - $65)

Los Tigres del Norte  
  Los Tigres del Norte  
  Santa Barbara Bowl, 1122 N. Milpas Street, Santa Barbara CA

Legendary Mexican-American band Los Tigres del Norte also know as The Tigers of the North have been entertaining audiences with their modern take on norteńo music since forming in San Jose, California in the late ‘60s. Known for their corridos, a regional style of narrative ballad, Los Tigres found international fame in 1974 with "Contrabando y Traición," a tale of two drug runners that led to a series of films based on the song. Fans and critics praise Los Tigres for their masterful live performances during which they infuse traditional corridos with cumbia, bolero, and rock rhythms, and for their creative use of sound effects, including machine guns and sirens. In 2011, the band released MTV Unplugged: Los Tigres del Norte and Friends, which topped the Mexican Albums Chart and earned the band a Latin Grammy Award for Best Norteńo Album. Since then, Los Tigres have been delighting fans with tales of love, betrayal, and survival, making tickets to their live concerts an essential for any fan of corridos and Latin American music in general. Los Tigres have earned a place within the pantheon of Latin American greats that includes Carlos Santana and Juan Luis Guerra!   ($50.00 - $99.50)

DEEP  
  The John and Peggy Maximus Gallery  
  Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, 2559 Puesta del Sol Road, Santa Barbara CA

For centuries, the presence of large creatures below the surface of the sea fueled the imagination of seafarers and populated early maps. It wasn’t until the late 19th century that the HMS Challenger expedition travelling with a crew of scientists systematically studied the oceans, collected specimens from various depths, and laid the foundations for modern oceanography. DEEP tells the story of this pioneering voyage as well as highlights Museum specimens and current research.
