Don’t be alarmed if you hear my voice in your head in the morning; I’ll be on KPBS’s These Days on Thursday chatting about a few interesting things for the weekend. Tune in after 10 a.m. to 89.5 FM or listen online to hear me chat with host Maureen Cavanaugh and my fellow guest, the always entertaining Enrique Limon.

If you can’t listen in, I’ll share the clip when it’s available. Here’s what I’ll be talking about:

• Bach Collegium San Diego’s performances of “St. John Passion” are coming this weekend, as foreshadowed in our fascinating post about interpreting Bach in the modern day by Valerie Scher.

• Artist Rick Stich’s residency at Lux Art Institute in Encinitas. Stich built a mini-marina (take a peek in this North County Times story) replete with water, dock and boat specifically for his month at Lux. I checked it out today and talked more about Stich’s experience making work while people can come ask him questions. There’ll be a free admission day Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

• As I mentioned in yesterday’s Arts Report, I saw the musician Feist perform at the Hollywood Bowl three summers ago and have never shaken the fascination I had with the artist using light and shadow on projectors to illustrate the songs. That artist, Clea Minaker, is in town this week to partner with the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego and Sezio for a couple of fascinating-looking workshops for teens and performances for the rest of us.

• As a former busker myself, I think this festival of street performing happening at Seaport Village on Saturday and Sunday looks pretty intriguing. (Especially the fire-breather in the North County Times’ preview.)

We’ll also have more tomorrow from Stich and his Lux residency for our weekly segment on NBC San Diego, switching from Fridays to Thursday afternoons at 4:30 p.m. Tune in! We’ll post the clip as soon as we can.
