Ya'd think things would slow down after Thanksgiving, but NOPE. There's a lot going on in Bakersfield this weekend! Here are some of those events!

The Architecture are hitting up Sandrini's on Friday! They'll be joined by Funeral Club, The Volume, and the Parrafins! Show starts at 9 and it's only $5 to check out some great local music!
It's closing weekend of A Day in the Death of Joe Egg! Head over to The Empty Space to see their adaption of this Tony Award- winning dark comedy! "A courageous and meaningful play, JOE EGG cleverly finds great humour and then the harsh reality in dealing with one of life's cruelest twists." Some local favorites are involved in this show including Ellie Sivesind, Amy Hall, and Bob Kempf! Shows start at 8 p.m. for both Friday and Saturday.
Before and after the show (or during intermission) make sure to take a look inside The Empty Space Gallery! Super-duo Eric Tolley and Michelle Guerrero put together a lovely exhibit called Light Living that shows the work the two put into elaborate and detailed lighting displays.
