Event: Drawing Connections: Introduction to Network Graphs
Description: Network analysis facilitates the study of things (or “nodes”) and their connections to one another (called “edges”). Whether you’re exploring relationships in literary, social, or correspondence networks, network graphs help disentangle relationships.

In this workshop, we’ll cover the basics of network analysis, the types of graphs you can create, where you can find formatted datasets, potential tools to build networks, recommended readings, a review of network analysis projects, and how you measure importance in a network. The hands-on portion of the workshop will focus on how to structure data to create both nodes and edges sheets for input into network analysis software (Cytoscape).
Start: 10:00am
End: 11:00am

The FABBA Show
Announce Virtual Concerts

Livestreams with three shows on May 1

COVINA, CA (3/11/21) Marie-Claire Follett was a teenager in London looking for a singing job when she auditioned for a spot in an ABBA tribute band.

She got the gig all right, and something else — a career.

“I was just a singer looking for a job, and it’s kind of become my life’s work,” Follett says.

She isn’t complaining. That’s because she and her husband Andy Marshall, who’s also her partner in the ensemble known as The FABBA Show, now have three casts of the show. Two are in Europe — including one in the original group’s native Sweden — and one that works in the United States.

It’s Follett’s California-based group that will perform the music of the wildly popular and totally enigmatic pop group in the band's first virtual concert on Saturday, May 1 at 2 pm and 6 pm PST. Both shows will be filmed live from the Covina Center for the Performing Arts in Southern California.

Follett says people who aren’t familiar with the music of ABBA, simply because they didn’t live through the ABBA hey day between 1974 and 1982, have no clue that people around the world continue to worship the band, which hasn’t performed together in 35 years.

“They’re still absolutely huge in Europe,” Follett says.

“In fact, when we were living in London, we were one of 100 ABBA tribute bands. The music continues to be huge with all the generations. They sold 600 million records, and they’re still selling millions today, even though they haven’t recorded in over 30 years. It’s quite remarkable.”

Follett says she’s seen the band’s multi-generational appeal every time she, her husband and their two stage mates step into the spotlight.

“We have people in our audience who are 6 years old who know all the words (to ABBA songs),” she explains.

The FABBA Show is more than just four singers performing the songs of ABBA. This is one of those rare tribute shows where acting the part is every bit as important as sounding like the original group.

Follett portrays ABBA’s Frida Lyngstad. Besides her husband, who plays Bjorn Ulvaeus in the show, the other members of the American cast include Julianne Ruck as Agnetha Faltskog and Robert Gonzalez as Benny Andersson.



“When my husband and I moved to California (from Europe), we picked up the new cast members for the (American) cast. They were from California, so they taught us how to surf, and we taught them Swedish accents,” she says with a big laugh.

The virtual box office is now open: www.StellarTickets.com
Tickets are $15. Ticket holders may view the concert until the end of day, May 3 (11:59 pm).

Calendar listing: The Fabba Show’s Virtually ABBA concert livestreams on Saturday, May 1 at 10 am, 2 pm and 6 pm PST. Tickets are $15 and may be purchased at www.StellarTickets.com. The concert may be viewed on Apple TV, Roku TV, Amazon Fire TV, (iOS, and Android). The Virtually ABBA Show is a theater tribute to the World famous 70's super group has all of the excitement of their live touring show. The show is appropriate for all ages.The concerts will be filmed live from the Covina Center for the Performing Arts.
