Art Therapy Prescription for a healthier, happier YOU!

Time to trade in your weekly therapy session for some local arts and culture events happening this weekend. Here at Pink Line HQ, we know that attending arts and culture events can improve your physical and mental health so we've specially selected weekend picks that are sure to get you out of the box, or should we say out of the cubicle, and feeling healthier and happier in no time.

Warning: The Pink Line Team can only help you so much without a full analysis of your condition. For more art therapy, please self medicate by checking out our calendar!

Music Pick of the Week from Hometown Sounds:

Is the end of the world coming this weekend? There have been many predictions, and eventually one will be correct. In case this is the one, you should hit up the stellar lineup on Friday night at Comet Ping Pong. Sasha Lord puts together fantastic shows, and this one features two great local bands: recently revived Slumberland shoegazers Lorelei and rock newcomers Shark Week. Headlining is The Babies, featuring Cassie Ramone of the Vivian Girls and Kevin Morby of the band Woods. Don't forget your earplugs, just in case the Earth keeps spinning on Saturday.
