Together, At Last -- Two great tastes that taste great together? No, not peanut butter and chocolate. I'm talking here about the marriage of Gatsby's and Fat Tuesday's. Let us explain. Fat Tuesday's Concert Hall and owner Ken Dupree have been looking for a new home since DuPree closed up the venue at its previous Riverwalk location next to Northern Lights Brewpub. As you will no doubt recall, Fat Tuesday's was previously the site of some incredible shows including Death Cab for Cutie, Nashville Pussy, Pedro the Lion, Reverend Horton Heat, Maroon 5, the Super Suckers and many others. Well, a home has been found -- within a space that has its own glorious rock history to tout. That space is Gatsby's, which, under a previous owner, recently closed up shop. Are you still with us? That's Fat Tuesday's Concert Hall, newly located where Gatsby's used to be at 109 W. Pacific St. Dupree says the new Fat Tuesday's will feature quality all-ages shows (with a bar for patrons 21 and over), great sound, great lights, a giant stage and a capacity of 400. Stay tuned to The Inlander music section for more on this exciting local live music development.





Puppy Love -- When you've had one of those days that feels like having your brain pulled out your nose with a crochet hook, few things compare to going home to a furry, adoring companion. And we're not talking about Nicolas Cage here, people. We're talking about cats and dogs sorely in need of a loving home. Spokane County Regional Animal Care & amp; Protection Services (SCRAPS) is hosting the Dog Days of Summer on Saturday, Aug. 14, from 1-4:30 pm. The SCRAPS shelter animals will all be up for adoption, and various area shelter groups and animal rescue organizations will be on hand to answer questions. Activities include Dunk-the-Dog-Cop and Bobbing-for-Tennis Balls. (And what dog doesn't love a good, soggy tennis ball?) The SCRAPS shelter is at 2521 N. Flora Rd.





The Truth Is Out There -- If you're reading this on Thursday, Aug. 12, and have no plans tonight, get yourself over to Auntie's Bookstore to see activist and author Dennis Kyne. A decorated veteran of the first Gulf War, Kyne now speaks out on the dangers of depleted uranium (which Rolling Stone writer Hillary Johnson says now "supplies the shock and awe" when


U.S. troops go to war). Kyne will be reading from his new book, Support the Truth, which delves into everything from depleted uranium to hidden


class warfare. Dennis Kyne appears


at 7:30 pm.





Magic Review -- Penn Jillette did not write his own book review (Sock) as an error in last week's issue may have indicated. That review was written by Rachel Mindell.
