Bee Critic Picks: Things to do this weekend

TODAY-MONDAY

Below the waves

'The Last Reef 3-D: Cities Beneath the Sea'

TODAY

Lonesome River Band

Keeping good company in Winters

What: You couldn't blame the Lonesome River Band for continuing the celebration that started with the band's 30th anniversary last year. The International Bluegrass Music Association deemed Sammy Shelar the best on banjo, and it said this five-man band had the best instrumental performance of 2012 with "Angeline the Baker." Their tight harmonies, rockin' rhythm and traditional roots might have you thinking the same thing.

When: 8 p.m. Friday

Cost: $20

Info: (530) 795-1825; palms@palmsplayhouse.com

Array of films from France

What: Every summer, the Sacramento French Film Festival offers the best in new French feature films and at least one classic. Every winter, the SFFF offers a shorts program composed of new films and greatest hits from previous festivals. Saturday's event will double as a festival fundraiser and will include French pop from DJ Christophe, free Luigi's pizza and a recap of today's César Awards, the French equivalent of the Oscars.
