2011-05-09/06-19 Monthly LOVIEE

While a bit later than I’d like it to be, I was able to come up with a good seven events covering the next month or so. I realize I’m a bit thin on descriptions and links for some of these; I may go back and add some descriptions, and possibly even other events, if/when time permits.

I am temporarily suspending the weekly LOVIEEs until I have the new computer (it should be arriving in time for a weekly LOVIEE to be posted for 05-23/29 or two weeks from now).

Saturday 05-14

Mercury Baroque Season Finale, Wortham Center, Cullen Theater, 8pm, $?.
