As entertainment editor here at the CU Independent, I want all of our readers to have an awesomely entertaining week. Here are my picks for this week, so you’ll never have to worry about being bored.
“Don’t Panic!”: Test Anxiety/Stress Management Presentation
With only two weeks left of school and finals looming on the horizon, it’s easy to start pulling out hair and breaking down to fits of rage tears. Guest presenter Valeria Yeo, a pre-doctoral therapist, can show you study strategies and calming techniques so you don’t have to be the student who screams and tears their final up in the middle of the exam. The presentation is in Fleming 150, Monday at 1:30 p.m.
“Christmas in Acidland”
This bizarre collection of kitsch animation shorts, musical interludes, comedy bits and seasons greetings from the Reagans themselves offers some of the best of vintage television specials. The wildest Christmas show ever will play at the Dairy Center of the Arts Dec. 16 at 2 p.m. and Dec. 19 at 7 p.m. Tickets for the holiday madness are $8-$10.
Kreayshawn @ The Fox
The hip hop artist will share the Fox Theatre stage with Rye, Rye, Honey Cocaine and Chippy Nonstop on Wednesday at 8 p.m. The show is all ages, with $20 advance tickets, $23 day of tickets, plus $2 for under 21.
Never Shout Never @ The Fox
The band coming out of the ashes of former solo act Never Shout Never presents sweet singer-songwriter tunes off its latest album, “Time Travel,” at the Fox Theatre. The all ages show starts at 7 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $20 in advance, $22 day of show, plus $2 for under 21.
“A Broadway Christmas Carol”
Kathy Feininger combines the classic Christmas story with showtunes for a new twist in holiday storytelling. The show is acclaimed by critics, including the Washington Post, and is making it’s regional premiere at University Theatre. The show starts this Friday and runs every weekend until Dec. 23. Tickets are $17, with discounts for Seniors, CU students, faculty and staff.
