Despite their determinedly of-the-moment sound, Redfoo and Sky Blu are carrying on a long pop lineage: the former is Motown founder Berry Gordy's son, the latter his grandson. As red-hot electropop duo LMFAO, the uncle-nephew pairing electrifies dance floors with manic odes to party life. The 2012 Sorry for Party Rocking tour explodes with fan favorites such as "Party Rock Anthem" and newer hits such as "Sexy and I Know It," which has a bouncy swagger that dominated the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 28 weeks. Meanwhile, the band parades in neon animal prints amid backup dancers, bobbing beneath giant robot heads, tossing inflatables into the crowd, and creating a spectacle Metro Weekly calls "enormously entertaining."
Musique Sur La Mer Youth Symphony Orchestra has performed around the world - including the Sydney Opera House Australia, Christchurch Cathedral, New Zealand, The Gold Hall of the Musikverien in Vienna and the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria. Musicians range in age from 12 - 25.
At Tava Grill and Lounge, owner and chef Punita Patel infuses her seasonal menu with Indian flavors and fresh, local ingredients. The paneer fajita tacos, for instance, ooze authenticity along with housemade cilantro mint chutney that can double as smelling salts for a food-comatose date. The seafood biryani paella evokes both India and Spain with a blend of shrimp, mussels, squid, and crab in a creamy curry sauce.
A separate menu in the lounge marries the food of India and California, as the atmosphere fuses nightclub and fine-dining establishment. Beside a softly lit bar, benches and ottomans are scattered around low tables, which break up regular tables and booths without the staff having to dig trenches around each.
Professional tutors help students make quick progress at Tutoring Club, where the staff relies on individualized instruction and a confidence-building structure. A low student-to-teacher ratio helps tutors track the progress of each student during classes that focus on math, writing, study skills, test prep, and more.
Although the instructors at Underground Yoga got there by way of different backgrounds—vinyasa flow, ashtanga, and hatha, to name a few—they all share an affinity for strengthening students' bodies and minds. Their classes take place in a dimly lit studio with a panoramic skyline mural on one wall and paintings from local artists on the others. Add music and you have a recipe for a hip yoga setting that doesn't mind if the class is your first or 100th. To complement the flowing yoga movements, Underground also schedules two-hour hula hoop workshops where attendees can sling a hula hoop around their hips just like Newton did when he discovered centrifugal force.
