The public art project, to be painted by Nashua mural artist Barbara Andrews, will depict a view of West Pearl Street from 1909.The colored mural, named Vivians Dream, will stand about 40 feet by 35 feet. It is designed to enhance downtown Nashua by offering residents, businesses, restaurant patrons, shoppers and visitors a historic public art experience, according to a release. The jazz concert will include performances by Pam Purvis, Bob Ackerman and Tim Maynard. We are delighted that Pam and Bob have donated their time and wonderful talents, coming to Nashua from the New Jersey/New York area, to help us bring a significant piece of public art to downtown, said Marjorie Bollinger Hogan, president of City Arts Nashua. Purvis sings and plays keyboard, while her husband, Ackerman, plays piano, saxophone, clarinet and flute. Maynard is a percussionist from Massachusetts. Purvis and Ackerman have eight recordings, and have performed all over the nation, in Europe and Mexico, according to a release. We want our music to swing and get you moving, but we are also interested in the subtleties of color, harmony and nuance, Purvis said in a statement. I want you to see and feel the images in the song. I come from a part of the country where there is a lot of color and energy. I hope youll find these things in my singing. The concert is being sponsored by Nashua Community Music School, Nashua Radisson Hotel and Darrells Music Hall.

Maybe there wasnt someone grabbing our ass, we said to ourselves. Maybe it was just a weird coincidence. There was no reason to take any action at all, because surely something so outrageous wouldnt happen IN A CIVILIZED WORLD! Finally, though, we couldnt keep up the fantasy. Every two minutes or so, our asses would get grabbed, and instead of enjoying the show (I think they did a good job, those Weezers) and focusing on the music, we were worried about the next attack on our defenseless hindquarters. Tentatively, I finally asked Nate if he had noticed anything odd, and he confirmed that we were under a full assault.
