"RHYTHM TRAIN": It's the name of the new CD from Dick Van Dyke and musician Leslie Bixler. They'll be signing and singing at Borders Westwood at 6 p.m. Now, two things. Number one: Dick. Van. Dyke. Written out very slowly with plenty of punctuation to stress how major this man is. And two: The CD is plenty cheeky and fine for all ages. There's even a song about a vacuum cleaner.
TWO FIRST THURSDAY STAPLES: It's the 2nd of the month but the first Thursday, meaning both Hear NoHo and the San Pedro Artwalk are on for tonight. Hear NoHo happens in NoHo -- a snap to remember -- and features Jennifer Quiroz, Vonyse, and several other artists. The San Pedro night has a bunch of galleries and musical things afoot, including live, strudel-adjacent opera.
