Candy Lee

Wed., March 4, 7:30 p.m.
509-747-6005
Jones Radiator 120 E. Sprague Ave., Spokane Spokane - East (map)

Citing a chief interest in the practice of “expanding consciousness,” 2011 Northwest Arkansas Music Award winner Candy Lee not only puts that interest to excellent use in her songs, her voice provides an ethereal, almost weightless balance to the grounded, folkish simplicity of the music. Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, Lee recently embarked on the Follow Your Bliss tour — a solo outing that finds the daringly independent songwriter zigging and zagging across the country with a Craigslist-purchased trailer for sleeping and her husband and two dogs to keep her company.

Coeur d'Alene Casino 37914 S Hwy 95, Worley Rural Idaho (map)
,
It might be hard to remember just how subversive Cheech & Chong were when the comedy duo first became popular, and not just because their fans were sparking joints constantly while listening to their hit albums or seeing movies like Up In Smoke. Their act drew from ’60s hippie culture, rock ’n’ roll and the L.A. drug scene to point out the absurdities in everyday life — and in the so-called “war on drugs.” After decades apart, they reunited five years ago and have toured almost nonstop since.

EWU Visiting Writers Series: Elizabeth Graver

Fri., March 6, 8 p.m.
838-0206
Auntie's Bookstore 402 W. Main Ave., Spokane Spokane - Downtown (map)

With her fourth novel The End of the Point, Drue Heinz Literature Prize-winning author Elizabeth Graver landed on the New York Times notable books list in 2013. Though she teaches English and creative writing at Boston College, Graver consistently carves out time for her writing, which has yielded four novels and several anthologized short stories. The End of the Point paints a moving portrait of a family’s journey through the treacherous second half of the 20th century, exploring the complex choices any generation must face when presented with the reality of legacies both personal and collective. Presented by the Inland Northwest Center for Writers MFA Program at EWU and Get Lit!, Graver’s visit will include a reading from The End of the Point, a brief Q&A session, and book signings.

Single Mothers, Dirty Nil

Fri., March 6, 8 p.m.
509-368-4077
The Hop! 706 N. Monroe St, Spokane Spokane - Downtown (map)

After infamously ditching his bandmates for the unlikely life of gold prospecting in Swastika, Ontario, for three years, Single Mothers’ brainchild Andrew Thomson returned with stories of cocaine-addled miners, a sharpened disgust for the perils of organized religion, any and all local music scenes, and even at times, himself. This general dissatisfaction permeates Negative Qualities, the Canadian punk band’s full-length debut, but not without a postmodern sense of humor and a heavy dose of self-awareness.

The Best Brothers

In Canadian playwright Daniel MacIvor’s newest play, tragedy strikes Kyle and Hamilton Best when their mother, Bunny, is smothered beneath the girth of a drunken drag queen during a Gay Pride parade. Left to settle Bunny’s affairs, the two find themselves battling over what to say in her obituary, who should read the eulogy and finally — but most important — who gets the family dog. Whether you respond to calamity with solemn reflection or irreverent laughter, The Best Brothers looks to be a thoroughly enjoyable night at the theater. Delight yourself in this hilariously darkish comedy where Bunny’s boys prove that though they may never be the best of brothers, they will eternally remain the Bests.

Whitworth Cowles Auditorium 300 W. Hawthorne Ave., Spokane Spokane - North (map)

The tragedy of the “Radium Girls” is at once mesmerizing and infuriating. Under the direction of Susan Hardie, Whitworth drama students are staging an adaptation based on true events in the 1920s that led to the deaths of four women (in actuality there were many more victims) who hand-painted watch dials with a radium-based, glow-in-the-dark paint. It paid well, but the women were unknowingly exposed to lethal levels of the highly radioactive element. When their teeth started falling out, their skin permanently glowed and severe bone infections developed, their employer and the manufacturer of the radium paint tried to cover up what both knew was radium poisoning. A legal battle ensued, but not before it was too late for nearly all the workers.

March 6-14; Fri-Sat at 7:30 pm, Sun at 2 pm • $8-$10 • Whitworth University Cowles Auditorium • 300 W. Hawthorne • whitworth.edu • 777-4374 $8-$10

It’s the time of year when everyone wants to get into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit (but mostly just wants an excuse to drink) — including the Spokane Symphony. For its next SuperPops concert (no. 5 in the series), the orchestra accompanies Irish singer Cathie Ryan and her band. Don’t be fooled by the vocalist’s Detroit roots; her lilting lines are as classically Irish as it gets. Show up to the concert early for some classic Irish eats like shepherd's pie and perhaps a spot of whiskey, even if you don’t have a drop of Irish in you at all. Morihiko Nakahara conducts.

Sat, March 7, at 8 pm • $28-$62 • Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox • 1001 W. Sprague • spokanesymphony.org • 624-1200 $28-$62

Temple Beth Shalom 1322 E. 30th Ave., Spokane Spokane - South (map)

Held every year since 1941, it’s safe to say that Spokane’s Temple Beth Shalom has truly perfected its annual kosher dinner. A tradition for Spokane’s Jewish community, the dinner was first held as a gathering during a less hospitable period of war, and followed the cultural use of meals to celebrate making it through difficult times. Open to citizens of any and all backgrounds, religions and cultures, past dinners have brought immense amounts of food, joy and laughter to more than 2,000 people throughout the course of the daylong event. No matter if it’s the brisket and tzimmes (a dish of warm, honey-sweetened carrots) or the overwhelming sense of community that draws you in, this experience only happens once a year.

Sun, March 8, from 11 am-6 pm • $7-$14 • Temple Beth Shalom • 1322 E. 30th • spokanetbs.org • 747-3304 $14/adults; $7/kids
