Campus is just bursting with arts events this weekend–especially those aimed at the cheapskates among us! Splurge on a box of chocolates and take your Valentine to one of these gems:

  • As we mentioned in last week’s post, Terrace has released its spring 2011 band lineup, which starts tonight with performances from Swift Technique and Mark Nagy 11′s Starchild. Free with PUID.
  • If free (!) theater’s more your scene, start off your evening with an open dress rehearsal of Caryl Churchill’s The Skriker, directed by Molly Silberberg ’11 and featuring NuShelle de Silva ’11 and Bethy Atkins ’11.  The show officially opens on Friday night, but come tonight for a sneak peak! Free Thursday production at 8pm in Matthews Acting Studio at 185 Nassau St; regular performances are Friday and Saturday at 8pm. Student tickets $10, student events eligible.  The show will also run next weekend.
  • Naacho's "Talaash" is an unmissable event this weekend.

    Looking to drown your romantic sorrows in some killer fondue? Hit up MLIFailedLove at the University Art Museum tonight, from 7-9pm.  It’s a free evening of performances, poetry, and art-browsing with like-minded souls…with cheesecake, tarts, and other goodies to seal the deal (plus it’s just a stone’s throw away from free cookies at Murray Dodge–because who says the Thursday before Valentine’s can’t be an epic dessert crawl?)

  • In between the fondue and Murray Dodge, your best bet is to see Naacho’s winter show Talaash: A Search for Lost Love across the street at Theatre Intime. Be warned, Naacho tickets sell out fast!  Definitely one of the weekend’s most exciting events. Thursday and Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 6pm and 10pm. Student tickets $8; student events eligible.
