What You're Doing This Weekend: June 5-7

PEACHES: There are few artists today working more provocative, and gender-and-ideas-explore-y territory, than this Canadian performer. Are you thinking of the song memorably used in "Lost in Translation"? We are. June 6 and 7, Music Box at the Fonda

GOOD "BADUIZM": She just headlined the mondo, music-filled UCLA Jazz Reggae Festival; now Erykah Badu is taking the stage at Club Nokia. Take a seat for soulful songs with a lot of vintage vibe and beauty. Friday, June 5

POP-OPERA MAN: Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli has pretty much rocked the whole operatic/classical/Top 40 world for the last two decades. His "Con te partiro" puts us, in our minds, in front of the fountains at Bellagio. Hollywood Bowl, Sunday, June 7

BEANS, NO BEANS, EXTRA BEANS: There are few finer outings than a really spicy, no-pot-holders-barred chili cookoff. Tomatoes, extra bite, soupy, we don't care -- chili pleases. The Tustin Street Fair & Chili Cookoff is all about the bowl, and arts and crafts, too. Sunday, June 7

SOUTH ROBERTSON PARTY: Kids, eats, something bounce-house-y or equally as festival-like, tunes. The SoRo community takes over a good portion of South Robertson every year -- no surprise there -- to celebrate the nabe. Nice. Sunday, June 7
