PHOENIX, (AZR) -- If you remember anything about music in the 1970s, you probably don't mind remembering the Steve Miller Band. Part entertaining pop, part solid bluesy rock, the music that Steve Miller created provided the decade with comfortable guitar hooks and entertaining lyrics. After all, Miller is the man who gave us a reference to 'the pompitous of love.' Along the way, Steve Miller sold an awful lot of records and tickets to his ever-growing fan base. more info: 602.252.6771

HARVEY KARTEN, Ph.D.,

The Internet has been called by writers in a recent New York magazine article one of the ten great inventions of all time, comparable to the discovery of fire and the invention of the wheel. Like the wheel and fire-which between them have caused no small number of tragic and painful deaths-the 'net has not been an unmixed blessing. The invention has been responsible for 24-hour bullying with attendant suicides and a loss of communication and writing skills. As Jackie Mason said way back in a Carnegie Hall show, "People in New York have been known to e-mail complete strangers climbing Mt. Everest, but they don't even say hello to their neighbors in the elevator."

Pushing the boundaries of classical ballet, Spain's emerging choreographic powerhouse Alejandro Cerrudo presents Off Screen, a dance inspired by film. It's sexy and modern with eccentric moves. Ib Andersen showcases the elegant and intricate Symphonie Classique with costumes by Tony Award-winning designer Martin Pakledinaz,and Indigo Rhapsody, an arresting and athletic ballet danced to Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.
The Arizona Game and Fish Department will host six public open houses where constituents may review and ask questions about the 2014 spring recommendations for turkey, javelina, buffalo and bear.
