Jenna Johnson, on of the Top 10 from last season, kept a promise to partner Landon Anderson, who was her partner when she auditioned last year. He would have gotten a ticket, too, but he was too young. So when he tried this year, Jenna was there with him. They did a beautiful routine and Landon was given a ticket, but Nigel called Jenna back as she tried to follow Landon out of the auditorium. Nigel praised her work and said they would be stupid if they didn’t ask her back this season as an All-Star, and Landon celebrated with her in the lobby.

“It’s important, culturally, to grow up with this,” said Ghazian, “you remember the sights, the smells and it stays in your memory.”. On stage, children portraying flowers, a gold coin and even a garlic bulb all took turns stepping forward to announce their presence and significance in the native Farsi tongue. They’d been practicing for six months, said Mehri Joon, an instructor at the school who served as emcee for the show, moving back and forth across the stage and pumping her arms to rouse the crowd.

Here’s our review from Petty’s concert on Aug. 22 at the Greek. There’s a heightened sense of urgency surrounding the Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ three concerts at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley this week. It stems from reports that the band’s current road show – celebrating 40 years in the music business – will be its last “major” tour. That has many locals worried that this Greek run will also be Petty and his crew’s final Bay Area performances. That’s understandable. Yet, I still have one bit of advice for those concerned fans.
