Spotlight: A Sasquatch sighting, at a discounted rate

By The Spokesman-Review
 

Memorial Day weekend seems ages away, but it’s never too early to be thinking about Sasquatch.

The annual four-day music festival at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Wash., won’t announce a lineup until February. But you can buy a limited number of discounted passes through Dec. 31.

They’re on sale now for $300 at sasquatchfestival.com.

Sounds of the season

Last winter, I went to work out and forgot my iPod. So, as I hit the treadmill, I was listening to the piped in Christmas music playing over the gym’s sound system. I had a chuckle when “Avé Maria” started playing.

The song didn’t do much for my heart rate, but it did calm my nerves. It is a gorgeous piece of music.

If you enjoy “Avé Maria,” Holy Names Music Center has the program for you. At 3 p.m. on Dec. 9, Holy Names students will present its annual “Avé! Celebrate and Rejoice” concert, featuring several versions of “Avé Maria,” along with other music.

Admission is free. The music center is at 2911 W. Fort George Wright Drive.

Staged again, ‘Dagnabbit’

Two down, one to go.

Tim Behrens will stage one more Patrick McManus play next month as part of the effort to put the one-man shows out on DVD.

“Poor Again Dagnabbit” will once again find the indentured actor telling McManus’ humorous tales of growing up poor and of becoming poor again.

The show is Dec. 6 at 7:30 p.m. at the Bing Crosby Theater, 901 W. Sprague Ave. Tickets are $17, available through TicketsWest, (800) 325-SEAT or www.ticketswest.com.>
