From a retro soul music show to a poetry reading and an unusual film screening, here's a preview to some of this month's top events happening around San Diego.

Feb. 6-28 Game Changer 2: Contemporary Art from the Strauss Family Foundation

Contemporary art from around the world will be featured at this USD exhibit, which goes through the end of the month in the Exhibit Hall of USD's Student Life Pavilion. It includes 18 works created within the last 30 years. Many of the pieces have never been displayed at a college campus before. The majority of the artists whose work is featured hail from Latin America.

Feb. 6 Myron and E at Seven Grand Whiskey Bar

The vocal duo, Myron (Myron Glasper) and E (Erik Cooke), have a retro-soul sound. Local DJ Claire Caraska calls it timeless soul music with lots of sweet harmonies over a lot of strings and horns. Myron & E's debut album, Broadway, was released last summer and they've enjoyed success across the U.S. and internationally.

Stop by Macy's at Horton Plaza, Fashion Valley or UTC to get your free February Museum Pass: 44 museums, 50% off admission thru the end of the month. My favorite is the Model Railroad.
