Calendar Girls Picks and Clicks July 19-25: Psychedelic justice, art on the sand, women on drums

SAT | JULY 19

(FUNDRAISING PARTY)
Their heyday was in the ‘80s, one of their biggest hits was the title song for the Molly Ringwald teen-angst flick, “Pretty in Pink,” and the British new wave band initially called themselves RKO, Radio and The Europeans before settling on ” target=”_blank”>http://www.thejusticeball.org.

(ART EXPERIENCE)
Beachfront venues in and around the Santa Monica boardwalk are scheduled to “Glow” the night of July 19. The site-specific art event features cutting-edge video, installation art and sounds, all configured into public space to challenge how the public experiences contemporary art. Each project is a variation on the theme of light, luminescence and illumination. French artist Anne Deleporte will produce “Loose Cannon on Deck,” an imaginative installation using the famous two cannons on the boardwalk. Based on “Nuit Blanche” in Paris, the up-all-night art fair “takes its spirit from the fabled grunion that come ashore several times a year to spawn in the sand creating a momentary sensation of iridescence.” Sat. 7 p.m.-7 a.m. Free. Santa Monica Pier and beach. (310) 458-8350 ” target=”_blank”>http://www.sababaparties.com.

(SINGLES)
Elite Jewish Theatre Singles would like to share “The Gift of Music” with you, and the gift of companionship, too. Join the performance-loving group for a magical night at the Hollywood Bowl, featuring Julie Andrews singing Rodgers and Hammerstein classics from “The Sound of Music,” “The King & I,” “Cinderella” and the musical adaptation of her best-selling children’s book, “Simeon’s Gift.” A communal picnic dinner at the bowl will precede the summer concert. Sat. 7 p.m. (picnic), 8:30 p.m. (concert). $26 (pre-paid reservations only). Hollywood Bowl, 2301 N. Highland Ave., Hollywood. R.S.V.P. (310) 203-1312 or [email protected].

SUN | JULY 20

(WINE + ART)
Will a wide variety of kosher wine mitigate the effect of Holocaust art on one’s temperament or intensify it? That depends on your viewing experience of Eli Leskly’s almost cartoon-like drawings of life in Thereisenstadt at the Los ” target=”_blank”>http://www.lamoth.org.

(DRUMMING)
Crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, bells, Middle Eastern percussion, Afro-Cuban sacred bata drums, spirit dancing and yoga—just a few of the things you’ll encounter on “Women’s Drum Day,” an instructive female foray into the art of ritual drumming. Prepare for spirituality, stretching, dancing and meditating with presenters from varied ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Sun. 8:30 a.m. (registration). 9 a.m.-5 p.m. $60 (includes lunch). REMO Recreational Music Center, 7308 Coldwater Canyon Ave., Van Nuys. (818) 353-6628. ” target=”_blank”>http://www.ritf.org.

MON | JULY 21

(MOVIE)
Something about summer makes you nostalgic for your childhood. Maybe it’s the urge to ditch high heels and wear flip-flops to work. Maybe it’s the craving for ice cream in a crispy cone instead of a boring bowl. AFI is also feeling the tug of childhood and is screening a series of movies that’ll surely bring back some early memories. Tonight’s movie, part of the “Teenagers, Muppets, Aliens and Wizards” screenings, is a Steven Spielberg classic that made adults and children alike shed a couple of tears for a homesick alien. “E.T.: the Extra-Terrestrial” became a cultural icon that turned “E.T. phone home” into a highly overused catchphrase and 6-year-old Drew Barrymore into a Hollywood starlet. Mon. 7:30 p.m. $11.50. Arclight at Sherman Oaks Galleria, 15301 Ventura Blvd., Sherman Oaks.
