Happening this weekend

Kylie Minogue, Venice Art Walk, OC Greek Fest, etc.

May 20, 2011


Kylie Minogue Though she's a huge star throughout Europe and in her native Australia, the singer's following always has stayed cult-size in the United States, where she's still best known for her 1987 cover of "The Loco-Motion." ("Can't Get You Out of My Head," from 2001, threatened to change that but stopped just short.) Either way, Minogue gives her carefully calibrated arena-pop moves an uncommon degree of human warmth, whether stomping around the stage in thigh-high leather boots or cavorting with several slices of gym-rat beefcake in a simulated shower scene. Hollywood Bowl, 2301 N. Highland Ave., L.A. 7:30 p.m. $39.50-$150.


WaterWorks: Soak Up the Science Kids can immerse themselves in the world of H2O at this stimulating and interactive exhibit. Create the perfect rainbow, capture a raindrop and get a close-up view of snow to attain a better understanding of one of Earth's most powerful and precious natural resources. Discovery Science Center, 2500 N. Main St., Santa Ana. 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Exhibit runs through Sept. 11. Adults, $12.95, children 3-17, $9.95. (714) 542-2823.


OC Greek Fest This celebration of all things Greek features traditional music, folk dancing, authentic food, vendors, children's activities and tours of the church.

Venice Art Walk Venice's art walk may not have the massive crush of booze-addled fans as downtown's version, but that may be an upside. In the city's idyllic setting, artists will open their studios and galleries for events, auctions and showings, along with a spate of culinary and musical accompaniments. Various locations in Venice, Fri.-Sun. See for full schedule.
