Happy hump day, all! As per usual, there's way more options for your Wednesday night than you ever might have thought, and we've got quite a few of them listed in our event listings and Staff Picks. Just in case you'd rather have a less overwhelming list at your disposal, here are a few highlights for Wednesday, March 25:
WORDS | Keeping up with their great track record, Auntie's Bookstore will be hosting Tulalip, Washington, author Megan Kruse to discuss her latest novel, Call Me Home, which tells the tale of a broken family in Texas through the voices of the mother, her daughter and her son. If you've had the chance to hit up any of the other author visits at Auntie's, you know just how much fun they can be.
WORDS | If you're looking for a reading with a slightly different tone than that above, you might want to check out contemporary poet Douglas Kearney at Gonzaga University tonight at 7:30. He's as far from ordinary as it gets, using unique poetic techniques that involve visuals and pieces of rap songs, which all but a guarantee that it will be one of the most engaging poetry experiences you'll have the opportunity to attend. Check out his style in this video:
FILM | Not in the mood for a reading? An outdoorsy film experience could be the perfect alternative. If so, check out The Bing's International Fly Fishing Film Festival tonight. There'll be both short and full-length films capturing the culture of fly fishing, and there's even a chance to win some cool raffle prizes.
MUSIC | You don't think mariachi music and heavy metal are natural bedfellows? Then you clearly haven't heard Metalachi rip into their version of "Crazy Train." For a fun night of music unlike any you've experienced, consider a trip to the band's show at Big Dipper tonight. Here's a sample:
