This weekend's events look promising if you're curious enough to try something new. Whether you'd like to go south of the border, take in a spoken word performance, hear some live music or partake in a book discussion, the weekend has you covered.

First up is a full-length performance piece brought to you by the creative minds of Justin Hudnall and Margaret Noble. Hudnall is the executive director of So Say We All, the non-profit that puts on all-inclusive spoken word events. Noble is a sound artist whose work is known to intrigue. So, what do you get when you put these two in the same room? Righteous Exploits, an experimental performance piece that tells the story of the Hosmer family. Told through a combination of live audio/visual multimedia and performance art, the piece explores themes of morality, family and culture. The performance is happening Saturday at the White Box Theater in Point Loma. Learn more about it and get your tickets online.

The Stay Strange, a concert series brought to us by Sam Lopez, promises an out-of-the-box music experience on Saturday evening. Happening at Space 4 Art downtown, the fourth installment of the series features industrial doom and drone metal artist Author & Punisher, plus local electronic act Isolde Touch and LA-based Ides of Gemini. You can read more about the bands at the Stay Strange website

If you've been meaning to check out what Tijuana is like these days, Turista Libre is heading south of the border for a Lucha Libre (Mexican wrestling) outing. Turista Libre offers off-the-beaten-path Tijuana tours that give you a peek at the quirkier things the border city has to offer. Find out more about the tour at the Turista Libre website.

San Diego's voracious readers should already know about The Big Read, a program brought to us by the National Endowment for the Arts that encourages people nationwide to pick up a book and, well, read it. Books are selected by the NEA and then programs are developed across the country that get the community involved. San Diego is currently reading Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 and there are plenty of events happening around town for you to stop by and discuss the reading. Check them all out here.
