Neil Hamburger

Fri., Feb. 27, 8 p.m.
The Bartlett 228 W. Sprague Ave., Spokane Spokane - Downtown (map)

You could call Neil Hamburger a modern-day Tony Clifton, an anti-comic, or you can call him by his preferred designation, “America’s Funnyman.” The bafflingly awful comedian takes the stage with two or three cocktails tucked under his arm, combover plastered to his skull and bulging eyes magnified by Coke-bottle glasses, then proceeds to accost his audience with jokes that are more puzzling than funny. The alter ego of frequent Tim & Eric collaborator Gregg Turkington, Neil Hamburger is a terrifically weird experiment in performance art, hilarious in its mere concept. Don’t worry if you have no idea what the hell is going on at this show — that’s just part of the fun.

My Name Is Rachel Corrie

Mon., March 2, 7 p.m.
536-3839
,
Every day we wake up to a world saturated with a deluge of headlines concerning horrific violence and unrest worldwide. Hope for change can often seem dim or simply impossible. Rachel Corrie was a passionate humanitarian from Olympia, Wash., working with a nonviolent resistance organization endeavoring to stop the demolition of Palestinian homes and wells. Her death at 23 in 2003 did not silence her voice, but allows her vision to live on in My Name is Rachel Corrie, a new play commemorating her life. That life, mission and death have become a symbol of hope worldwide, and the moving play is crafted from the writings of this courageous woman. Following the production, presented by the Peace and Justice Action League of Spokane, is a discussion with Rachel’s parents, Cindy and Craig, as well as director Forrest Potter and actress Erin Fitzgerald.

Leisure Cruise

Mon., March 2, 8 p.m.
The Bartlett 228 W. Sprague Ave., Spokane Spokane - Downtown (map)

If Blade Runner had been directed by Pharrell, the soundtrack would have probably sounded a lot like Leisure Cruise. The duo, a rare pairing of Dave Hodge (Broken Social Scene) and Leah Siegel (Firehorse, the Citizens Band), mostly avoid the predictably ironic approach to the craft of pop ambiance by coating the synths with a generous layer of conviction. The band, whose name is a nod to the seemingly inevitable journey of humans being forced to leave Earth and colonize other planets, instills their self-titled debut with a genuine sense of optimism in the face of global demise. $8/$10

Ladysmith Black Mambazo has been crafting a cappella music of the utmost excellence since the early 1960s. Founded in South Africa by Joseph Shabalala, the group utilizes traditional native harmonies and rhythms in their sans-instrumental songs, and has been spreading their music around the world for more than 50 years. They’ve collaborated with musicians like Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder and Dolly Parton, and have released more than 50 studio albums. Fun fact: The group was at one point banned from singing competitions because their level of perfection was too high and other groups didn’t stand a chance.

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.
