In what could be one of the most bizarre electoral celebrations in American history, the iconic stand-up duo Cheech & Chong will perform at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium, three days after an election to decide whether marijuana should be legal in California.
Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong, who became big stars in the 1970s with an act built around smoking pot, will perform Nov. 5 at the Civic. Tickets are on sale now.
A duo that may appeal to those of a younger vintage is Jenny & Johnny, a newly formed musical project from the talented singer/songwriters Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice. They’ll play Sept. 1 at the Rio Theatre in Santa Cruz.
