Upcoming Concerts, Car Wash, Zoning Meeting

A fairly calm upcoming week in Norristown, except maybe for the zoning meeting, if enough of you get angry enough to go protest still another high-density development on a small lot.

"The Who's Tommy" continues this weekend at Theatre Horizon (Dekalb and Penn Sts), presented by New Cavern Productions. For show times and tickets, go to

Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm, Car Wash Hosted by Back Talk youth group in the parking lot at PAL  Fundraiser for their Dorney Park trip in Aug. Come out and support. For info or if you'd like to support in any other way, email or call 610-630-2111, ext 226.

Saturday at 4 pm in Elmwood Park band shell, Summer Concert Series presents a FREE Gospel Concert. I haven't seen announcements for this at all (except for erroneous listings claiming it's Sunday), so I honestly don't know if this is still on or not.

Sunday at 7 pm at the Elmwood Park band shell, Summer Concert Series presents Quiet Storm, an a capella rhythm and blues group. Free concert. Food/drinks available at the snack stand. Any questions call 610-270-0467.

Monday, July 21st, 10:30 am, Job Corps Information Session, Human Services Center, 1430 DeKalb St. Contact 1-800-733-JOBS (5627),, or

Tuesday at 7 pm at Municipal Hall, Zoning Board Meeting. On the agenda are these addresses: 672 Kohn, 1855 Markley, 1424 Juniper, 1329 Willow (Siloam Baptist Church), and 522 Cherry. The latter is another project of stacked townhomes (why can't we just call them condos?)--this time 16 units on less than a half acre. A TOTAL violation of the new zoning code. So in all likelihood, I'll be reporting on this one next week.

Wednesday from 2 to 4 pm, Montco OIC (Arch and Basin) will start a FREE class -- Coding and Web Design 101. Participants will learn how to build a basic webpage and add codes to customize it to their preference. Class is limited to 8 students per session and will meet on the 4th Wednesday of each month, all other times by appointment. Call (610) 279-9700 to register.

As always, check the calendar links to the right of this blog, but also, you might want to call before going to an event. For instance, I know Jus' Java is on vacation, so this week's usual events are off.
