For more than a decade, Kristin Hersh was the leader of the influential rock band Throwing Muses.

But this mother of three doesn't plan to go solo for long and doesn't plan to make a career out of folk music. Tune in Friday to learn about this once and future rocker, who is playing an Earthwise Productions show on April 16 at Cubberley Community Center.


The Museum of American Heritage is opening the doors at its new digs at the Williams House and Gardens on Homer Avenue. Renovation of the home and construction of the Museum's new Frank Livermore Education Center was begun in June 1997, following a two-year campaign that raised more than $500,000 for the project. The public is invited for a grand opening celebration on April 19. On Friday, we give readers a sneak preview of the Museum's new home and its new exhibit, which focuses on antique toys.
