15 Things To Do In San Diego This Weekend: KAABOO Del Mar, Bettye LaVette, \'The Heart Of Rock & Roll\'

Iam Thank because your visit in the my website with title 15 Things To Do In San Diego This Weekend: KAABOO Del Mar, Bettye LaVette, \'The Heart Of Rock & Roll\'. Happy reading

There are at least two excellent reasons why Keith Richards and Trombone Shorty jumped at the opportunity to collaborate with Bettye LaVette on her splendid new album, “Things Have Changed.” It gave them the opportunity to team up with LaVette, an intensely soulful singer who made her recording debut with 1962’s infectious “My Man — He’s a Lovin’ Man.” Just as enticing, it gave them the opportunity to do so on an album that mixes some of Bob Dylan’s finest and least-known songs with consistent aplomb. Blessed with a voice that is equal parts grit and grace, LaVette dives deep to find new musical riches. GEORGE VARGA

Voodoo Threauxdown

7 p.m. Sunday. Events Center, Harrah’s Resort SoCal, 777 Harrah’s Rincon Way, Valley Center. $49-$89, plus service charges (must be 21 or older to attend). (800) 745-3000. ticketmaster.com

Thanks to their past San Diego performances, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, New Breed Brass Band and Cyril Neville are no strangers to music fans here who crave the ebullient sound and feel of New Orleans. But Walter “Wolfman” Washington is a Big Easy mainstay who too rarely ventures our way. Equally engaging as a singer, guitarist and band leader, he performs an infectious blend of soul, funk, blues, jazz and rock. In concert, he usually throws down the funk — with dance-happy results.

Poway OnStage presents Clay Walker, with Anna Vaus

8 p.m. tonight. Poway OnStage at Poway Center for the Performing Arts, 15498 Espola Road, Poway. $25-$75. (858) 748-0505. powaycenter.com

Texas native and country crooner Clay Walker was ready for his interview, but something much more pressing came up. Walker’s three kids — ages 5, 8 and 10 — were headed to their first day of school. “But the 5-year-old didn’t understand why he needed to go,” Walker says with a laugh. “I had to convince him he was just visiting. It’s tough walking away from your kids when they go off on their first day.” Walker will soon bid adieu to his kids again, this time for a nationwide tour that leads him to the Poway Center for the Performing Arts for a concert presented by Poway OnStage. It’s one of the more intimate venues on Walker’s roster. ROB LEDONNE

“Barefoot in the Park”

8 p.m. tonight; 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday; 2 and 7 p.m. Sunday. Old Globe’s Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, Balboa Park. $30 and up. (619) 234-5623. theoldglobe.org

When the Old Globe’s revival of Neil Simon’s “Barefoot in the Park” began performances in July, it was the 11th time a Simon play had hit the Globe stage. But a month into its current run, the romantic comedy took on an unexpected poignancy, as the playwright passed away Aug. 26 at the age of 91. The Balboa Park theater had a special place in its heart for the Brooklyn-born dramatist, and vice versa: “I love the Old Globe,” Simon said in a 1988 U-T interview, praising local audiences’ open-mindedness. And after news of Simon’s death reached the theater, artistic director Barry Edelstein said that while he was dazzled by the playwright’s technique, “my happiest and most surprising discovery about his writing is how much love is in it.” JAMES HEBERT
