Percussion power

Advertiser Staff and News Services

Classical percussionist Evelyn Glennie has won a Grammy for her music, is as inventive a musician as they come, and has some pretty cool tattoos. She also lost much of her hearing before turning 11. The Scotland-raised Glennie is the subject of Thomas Riedelsheimer's documentary "Touch the Sound," which wisely avoids treating its subject's deafness as an ailment and instead showcases her amazing, apparently limitless talent. At 1 and 7:30 p.m. today at Doris Duke Theatre. 532-8768.

Calling all goddesses in need of some TLC. Head to the North Shore for the Goddess Tribe Valentine Pamper Party at Darrel Wilson's Retreat Center (68-007 Aweoweo St., Waialua), 3-10 p.m. Saturday. Indulge in skin renewal treatments, body art and free massages. And, of course, lots of chocolate. What to wear? The recommended attire is red or pink pajamas, robes and slippers. Men are invited to attend as pamperers. Cost is $25 ($35 at the door). Call 386-4470 to reserve.

"You won't hear any whiny-actor crap from me. Eva Longoria was kissing me for four hours the other day: Tough, tough job."
