Andre Thierry and his band Zydeco Magic will have you up on your feet and swinging the night away to the infectious grooves of French Creole music. With an original sound that merges traditional New Orleans-style Zydeco with hip-hop, blues, jazz and rock, the high-energy band has been nominated for a Grammy and was recently named Best Zydeco Group by the Bay Area Blues Society. To help make this dance party extra-special, the evening will begin with a brief Zydeco dance lesson, and Cajun food and beverages will be available for purchase. Learn More

Khaled Hosseini is a wonderful writer, and his graciousness and profound humanity came through in the talk and reading. Nicely hosted, lovely venue. I did find several of the ushers to be a bit invasive and aggressive, so that is my only complaint (and why I am giving 4 rather than 5 stars).
Quotes & Highlights
- “Hosseini gives us a vivid and engaging story that reminds us how long his people have been struggling to triumph over the forces of violence – forces that continue to threaten them even today.” —<em>New York Times Book Review </em>
- “[Love] is the emotion – subterranean, powerful, beautiful, illicit, and infinitely patient – that suffuses the pages.” – O, The Oprah Magazine
The Goldstar ticket price does not include a copy of Hosseini's new book.
