The Do List was taken over this week and we're delighted. My co-host is Nick Abraham, a member of KQED's Youth Advisory Board, guitarist in the band Unpopular Opinion, a high school junior at Sequoia High School in Redwood City, and a lover of pop-punk music. He's also a member of the invasion force for KQED's Youth Takeover week, in which we featured news stories and commentary by students from ten Bay Area high schools. Thanks Nick; we'd love to have you co-host again.

Here's the show he and I picked:

April 29: The California Alliance for Traditional Arts celebrates four bands in which master musicians pass on their knowledge to a new generation

April 28-29: The Bay Area Book Festival makes the case that books will never be obsolete.

May 5: The Pride Prom returns to Berkeley's 924 Gilman, offering a safe place for LGBTQ teens.

April 20-July 15: The San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles opens an exhibition on gun violence that proves these are not your grandmother's quilts.

May 3 and 4: Joyce Manor and awakebutstillinbed make loud intense music in shows in the North and South Bay.

April 27: Los Cenzontles Juvenil, the kids at the Los Cenzontles Cultural Academy, stage a record release show.

May 3: Nick Abraham's punk band Backyard Brew plays a gig at Backyard Brew in Palo Alto, and they're good.
