When Steve Martin and Martin Short take the stage for their “Now You See Them, Soon You Won’t” show – the latest version of the two-man show they’ve been taking around the country for several years now – don’t expect to see comedy sketches or either performer doing characters they’ve made famous over the past four decades.
Tickets for all four shows go on sale Thursday at 6 a.m. for Camas Club members and Friday at 9 a.m. for the general public.
Yes, I know we’re fast approaching a season of glad tidings and great joy. But the fact of the matter is, that be-of-good-cheer stuff rubs a few folks in Spokane the wrong way.
Steve Martin, the man who brought bluegrass music to mainstream audiences and introduced the banjo and balloon animals to comedy routines, has a new passion: He wants to imbue in U.S. audiences the same deep admiration he has for the works of Lawren Harris, arguably Canada’s most revered artist and one almost completely unknown in the U.S.
When Steve Martin tried to wrap up mortgage paperwork last week to buy a Spokane home, he thought he could simply verify through the IRS that he hadn’t paid taxes for years because his disability income didn’t meet the threshold necessary to file a return. Instead, his call to the IRS revealed a shocker: An identity thief had filed a 2011 tax return under his name and Social Security number. He was told the imposter in Texas received a refund.
The Spokane String Quartet is planning something unusual for today’s concert. The group will be tackling George Crumb’s avant garde 1971 piece “Black Angels,” which incorporates sounds created by crystal glasses, maracas, gongs, glass rods and thimbles. According to a news release from the quartet, the work also will incorporate amplified string instruments as it depicts vignettes from hell.
Here we go again: another Spokane-made movie, direct to DVD, complete with atrocious reviews. “The Big Bang,” the Antonio Banderas movie shot here in fall 2009, came out on DVD on May 24 and the critics have been cheerfully brutalizing it.
We have a solid list of new concert bookings to announce: • Steve Martin and his banjo act, July 22, 8 p.m., Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox – This will be Martin’s second banjo-centric appearance at The Fox. I attended his sold-out show in late 2009 and it was more fun than a barrel of mummies (yeah, he played “King Tut”).
