Spa One and its Employees Show Support for Victims of Domestic Abuse. Spa One, Tucson’s most affordable spa, has teamed up with the Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse, Southern Arizona’s largest domestic abuse shelter, this fall to raise awareness for the prevention and treatment of domestic violence. The campaign began in November, when Spa One will be hosting diaper drives and accepting monetary donations for Emerge! at all three of its locations. In the month of December, Spa One will donate products and services equal to half the value of its retail product sales made at all three locations. In a show of solidarity with victims of abuse, dozens of employees at all three Spa One’s three Tucson locations have volunteered to give over 150 free facials, manicures, pedicures, and therapeutic massages on December 7th to Emerge! participants. “Our ladies are very much looking forward to the spa day; it is the only pampering of this nature they are likely to receive until they are back on their feet financially,” said Tana Jones, Director of Development at Emerge! “We hope that the services will boost their morale and self confidence as well as their sense of physical well-being.” With locations at Campbell/Skyline, Grant/Wilmot, and Sixth/Campbell, Spa One welcomes the public to join its campaign to prevent domestic violence by stopping in to drop off diapers and make retail purchases in the month of December. For more information, visit www.spaone.com or contact Crystal Holum of Spa One at 520.318.1801 x119. About Emerge! Center: In April 2008, two outstanding and respected organizations – Brewster Center Domestic Violence Services (founded in 1963) and Tucson Centers for Women and Children (established in 1975) – came together to form Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse. Emerge!, the largest domestic abuse shelter and provider of domestic abuse prevention services and programs in Southern Arizona.

Travel back to Harlem's sassy, swinging '30s with this riveting, Tony Award-winning musical-exuberantly performed by a quintet of irresistible talents.

Mixed Media Art by the Border Project

Through November 6, 2009: The Border Project is a mixed-media art installation highlighting the perspectives of high school students living along the borders of Arizona, Mexico, the Tohono O'odham Indian Reservation, and the town of Ajo. This exhibit is the result of the students sharing their views through artistic expression. Deep in the heart of the Tohono O’odham Nation in southern Arizona, an exhibition created by students from the tribe as well as Anglo and Hispanic students from the United States and Mexico is challenging how many Americans view the U.S.-Mexico border.

Kevin Hammond, the newest artist on A&M Octone (home to Maroon 5 & Flyleaf) who will be performing with pop-rock darling, Kate Voegele, at Club Congress on Sunday, November 1st. Kevin paved an inspiring path for himself to A&M Octone—after quitting his day job and trading in his car for a van to become a musical nomad, he recorded a handful of tracks on a friend’s laptop, and it was that batch of raw recordings which led to his big break. Described as “a hybrid of Dave Matthews, Coldplay’s Chris Martin and John Mayer,” we were hoping you might have just a moment to connect with Kevin by phone, email, or even in-person while he is in town, to discuss his journey thus far, and what music fans can expect from his early 2010 debut album. Sample Kevin’s look and sound here: http://www.myspace.com/kevinhammond. Or here: http://b2b.amoctone.com/page/kevin-hammond
