Ringo Starr

Ringo Starr

The fun thing about a Ringo Starr concert is that you get a jukebox full of hits by each of the featured guest players, as well as the expected Beatles and solo Starr selections. Various iterations of the All Starrs have been touring for several years; this edition of Ringo’s merry band features longtime holdovers Gregg Rolie (Journey), Steve Lukather (Toto), Gregg Bissonette (David Lee Roth), and Warren Ham (Ham Brothers), joined this time by Men at Work’s Colin Hay and Graham Gouldman of 10cc. The month-long, 21-date tour started at the beginning of September and wraps up in LA two nights after the Humphrey’s date.

Bonsai

Bonsai

Bonsai, a Japanese art form that uses cultivation techniques to produce miniature trees that mimic the shape and proportions of full size trees, dates back over a thousand years. Bonsai offers objects of contemplation for the viewer, and exercise of effort and ingenuity for the grower. They can be created from a specimen of source material taken from nearly any perennial, woody-stemmed tree or shrub species.
