Tucker and Sophia write: Dear Cosmos, You’d think since we are from the same pack, Tucker and I would share the same tastes in art, music, and entertainment, but we often fight like cats and dogs whenever we have to decide on something to do. What do you suggest?
Cosmos: Sounds like someone needs to step up and assume the role of pack leader in your home. But until that happens, the best way to avoid tearing up the furniture over where to go next is to simply plan on checking out the free Twilight in the Park concerts on summer weeknights.
Every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday night through August 28, a different musical act, representing a completely different style of music, performs live on the Spreckels Organ Pavilion stage.
Granted, not every musical style will suit the tastes of all your fellow packmates on any given night. But what’s not to enjoy about sharing a picnic supper while listening to fun, uptempo music in a historic landmark as the sun sets over Balboa Park’s picturesque scenery? And who knows? You might even discover a new genre of music to download to your iPaw.
Taking a quick glance at this summer’s line up, I see plenty of returning and personal favorites of mine. In the coming week alone, I’m already marking my calendar, among other things, for the tropical rock and roll band Stars on the Water on Wednesday, June 18, and the always popular Elvis Presley Tribute Band, Graceland, the following Thursday.
Then next Tuesday, local legends the Bayou Brothers perform their unique Cajun/Zydeco music on June 24, followed by Cool Fever, covering classic R&B and Motown tunes, on June 25.
July and August promise an even greater variety of music at least one of you is sure to dig. If not, please send me a private message so I can refer you to a good pet therapist.
