This weekend there are a few events happening that you might want to be a part of:

SLO Film Fest screening of Hearing is Believing and live concert – Sunday, March 19th at 2:30 pm. This inspiring documentary tells the story of the young, sight-impaired piano virtuoso Rachel Flowers. She lives in Ventura County, but she has deep roots in SLO County. Both her parents and grandparents played in local bands and her grandparents owned a music store in Arroyo Grande. The movie is family-friendly, and there is a student discount ($10 - regular admission is $12). Following the movie, there will be a live concert by Rachel.
