Lewis Black, 8pm Thursday, Feb. 5, The Golden State Theatre, Monterey G rammy-winning comedian, actor and author Lewis Black is well known to fans for his apoplectic rants and near-hysterical commen- tary on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," on his HBO specials, in films, comedy albums and in his stand-up act. The acerbic Black brings his pop- ular "The Rant is Due Part Deux" stand-up to Monterey for the first time. Be forewarned: This show is not for the faint of heart or those with delicate sensibilities. AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am golf tournament, Feb. 9-15, Pebble Beach T he Monterey Peninsula has a love-hate rela- tionship with this long-running tournament that crooner Bing Crosby brought to the area in 1947. On the one hand, there's all the glitz and glamour of movie and TV stars like Bill Murray and Ray Romano, major sports figures and other celebrities playing a nationally televised tourna- ment in our own backyard, but there's also the traffic snafus, congested streets and long lines at your favorite restaurant or watering hole. A small price to pay, many say, for all that the tourney gives back to local charities, more than $120 mil- lion since 1937. That's a purse worth playing and paying for. Jazz Bash by the Bay, March 6-8, Monterey Conference Center, Monterey I t started life in 1980 as an adjunct to the Monterey County Fair, morphed into the downtown-centered Dixieland Monterey festi- val, and now is called Jazz Bash by the Bay to bet- ter reflect the dazzling diversity of jazz, from swing to ragtime, on display the first weekend in March. This year, 19 bands, three high school bands and 13 guest artists, including champion of the Great American Songbook, Rebecca Kilgore and her trio, will perform. How could you pass up a music festival with events such as Washboard Spasm, Pianorama and Blazin' Banjos on its roster? Rosanne Cash, 8pm Thursday, March 19, Sunset Center, Carmel A s the oldest daughter of country music great Johnny Cash and stepdaughter of June Car ter Cash of the legendary Car ter Family, you would think that Rosanne Cash would be hidden in the shadows. But she has emerged as her own compelling ar tist, with 15 albums, numerous awards and accolades, and 21 Top 40 hits, including 11 No. 1 singles. Her latest album, "The River and the Thread," a trib- ute to her Southern roots, got the most airplay in 2014 and was nominated for Album of the Year for 2014, both by the Americana Music Association. Johnny would be a proud papa. "Jungle Book," March 19-29, MPC Theatre, Monterey T he action-packed adventures of the preco- cious but naive Mowgli, Baloo, Kaa, Akela, Raksha, Bagheera and other colorful animal characters come to life in this classic Rudyard Kipling tale adapted for the stage. And for the first time, this Storybook Theatre production will move from the intimate Studio Theatre at MPC to the recently renovated Morgan Stock Main Stage to take advantage of all the techni- cal innovations and enhanced sound and light- ing. Directed by MPC theater head honcho The eldest daughter of country music legend Johnny Cash is an award-winning musician who performs at the Sunset Center in Carmel on March 19th. 94 C A R M E L M A G A Z I N E • W I N T E R 2 0 1 5 EVERYONE LOVES A LIST, RIGHT?
