Plan Your Month

Extreme Viewing
For those of us stuck here while others embark on exotic spring vacations, March 1 is our chance to live it up in extreme mountain style. Whether you’re an experienced mountaineer or an armchair adventurer, you won’t want to miss Philadelphia Rock Gym’s presentation of films hand-picked from the 2007 Banff Mountain Film Festival held in Alberta, Canada. Head to the Colonial Theatre and take in the thrill of climbing, skiing, kayaking, biking and more—all captured by the world’s finest mountain filmmakers. 7:30 p.m. $13-$15. 227 Bridge St., Phoenixville. Call (610) 666-7673.

Blunt Force
If you’re looking to score seats for British superstar James Blunt’s March 1 appearance at the Keswick Theatre, may we suggest eBay? All tickets were snapped up months ago. This highly anticipated tour backing his new album, All the Lost Souls
, features special guest Sara Bareilles, a dynamic singer/pianist along the lines of Fiona Apple and Norah Jones. While Blunt’s sensitive nature may appeal more to females, his ability to segregate real life from fame is as refreshing as his honesty. His “Lost Souls Tour” benefits Doctors Without Borders, an international humanitarian organization that offers emergency aid to those affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural or man-made disasters, and a lack of healthcare. Blunt is even auctioning off a one-on-one meet-and-greet session to a lucky fan after every show. 8 p.m. Keswick Theatre, 291 N. Keswick Ave., Glenside. Call (215) 572-7650 or visit keswicktheatre.com. —D.E.W.

It’s Raining Girls
Dads may find themselves short on interaction with their favorite little girls March 7-9, when the Saturday Club hosts the sixth-anniversary American Girl Fashion Show. The estrogen-charged event (trust us, spare your sons) features a fashion show highlighting the latest American Girl apparel and doll clothes, including AG’s newest “it” doll—and Girl of the Year—Mia St. Clair. More than just tea and chatter, the event gives kids—and their moms and grandmoms—a look at how generations of American girls have used clothing to express their unique styles and personalities. As always, there will be plenty of irresistible souvenirs, including American Girl tees, doll clothes and accessories. Keep in mind: The show runs about two hours and isn’t recommended for children under 5. The Waterford (formerly Lily Langtry’s), Radisson Hotel Valley Forge, 1160 First Ave., King of Prussia.
