Dirty Cello Cleans Up

Marin delivers the string bling when Dirty Cello performs at Marin Art & Garden Center Summer Concerts on the Lawn this Thursday. Known for their dynamic live shows, this Marin-based ensemble combines virtuosic musicianship with a fiery rock and roll spirit. Led by classically trained cellist Rebecca Roudman, Dirty Cello blends blues, bluegrass and world music with European classical roots, creating a refreshing and boundary-pushing sound that absolutely rocks. Doors open at 4:30pm, with the concert running from 5 to 7pm. Adult tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the gate, with parking at $10 in advance or $15 at the gate—available online at maringarden.org/events/dirty-cello (children 17 and under are free). Lawn and chair seating, a KidZone, and food and drink options are available, too. Marin Art & Garden Center is at 30 Sir Francis Drake Blvd., Ross.


Standing in the Dust

Sausalito Center For The Arts and Artistic Freedom Initiative presents “Standing in the Dust,” the photography of renowned Iranian photojournalist Yalda Moaiery, whose lens has documented conflicts, wars and natural disasters in Iran and globally. As one of Iran’s most dedicated photographers, Yalda’s compelling work has been featured in major international publications, earning her widespread acclaim. “For many years, I have envisioned this exhibition,” says Moaiery in her artist statement. “It is difficult for many to comprehend why the work of a photojournalist—whose images reflect the quotidian lives of people—would be deemed threatening, censored or banned.” The exhibit runs from July 10–28, with an opening reception from 5 to 8pm, Saturday, July 13 and includes a Persian appetizer buffet and a no-host bar. The center is at 750 Bridgeway, Sausalito. A $20 donation is encouraged at the door.
