Well - it looks like our homeland of Spokane has just got too much entertainment for a single weekly blogpost....say hello to: (drumroll please...) Double the Slam. I'll post up some interesting shows/concerts/events/whatever looks pleasing to our advanced generation. Ha - enjoy!
Ain't Misbehavin': Thu - Sun. March 19-22
Sure to be the "electrifying" show of the month, Ain't Misbehavin' features 2003 Idol Winner Ruben Studdard and Frenchie Davis in this presentation of the Fats Waller Broadway Musical. Startin' up at the INB Performing Arts Center. (Tickets on sale now)
Candlebox, Jet Black Stare, and Royal Bliss: Sat. March 21
Candlebox, this Seattle-based headliner is taking over the Knitting Factory with side-kick shows Jet Black Stare and Royal Bliss at 7 pm. (check out their tunes on MySpace...)
Ok...to mix it up a little bit, here's two local art displays that sound pretty cool.
The Empyrean Coffeehouse features Josh Jalcoich and CJ Bruininks: Through Tue. March 31
Like Katie said in the previous 'Slam', the Empyrean is a great way to enjoy some good coffee, enjoy some good music, support the locals, and....wait...did I mention the coffee? - Cause that's really a great selling point. The Empyrean is now featuring artist Josh Jalcoich and CJ Bruininks. (this place has a super-cool website, check it out at empyreancoffee.com.)
The Bank Left Gallery features The Youth of Palouse: Through Tue. March 31
This is basically my area of the state's version of the Empyrean, except with a more 'tea-room and bistro' feel. In addition to featuring the 'Regular Artists', the Gallery now is now showing off the work of the young artists, grades 3rd through 12th, of the area with it's first-ever kid's show. (Their website can be found at bankleftgallery.com)
