Hate Seattle More -- The Cure? Mogwai? Interpol? Cursive? They were all coming to the Gorge this weekend as a part of the Curiosa Tour. Were (past tense). That was until Robert Smith had to go and get a life on all of us and cancel the show due to a "family emergency." They've rescheduled, and the new gig will be on Aug. 31 at the Everett Event Center just north of Seattle. And to top off the fact that you'll have to drive four more hours than you'd originally planned, the show will not feature any opening acts. No Mogwai, Interpol or Cursive. If we sound upset, you're absolutely right.





A Lasting Signature -- Looks like John Hancock, the executive director of the Spokane Symphony, is leaving us. The five-year director of the local symphony has taken a position as the vice president and chief operating officer at the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. During his tenure, Hancock has been a major motivator in saving the Fox Theater, as well as ensuring that the symphony remains an important part of the Spokane arts scene. According to Hancock, the symphony is more important to Spokane's vivacity than we may know:


"The importance of beauty and harmony in our community inspires our work to provide broad access to the arts. That basic human need must not be undervalued," he says. "Spokane loves its symphony, and it's been an honor to be part of it."





Move Over Dixie Chicks -- You know that politics are getting serious when celebrities start commenting on it -- especially when they've been out of the spotlight since the '70s. Well, they're serious, and Carole King wants to tell you why. The famed 1960s and '70s singer/songwriter will be speaking about the importance of voter registration tonight from 6-7:30 pm at the Long Ear (2405 N. Fourth Ave., Coeur d'Alene). It's free, and there's a good chance King will weave a few songs off Tapestry for your listening pleasure.





Zoo-ropa -- Who ever said adults couldn't enjoy cartoons? In Gabe Strine's case, it looks like they do. The mind behind The Zoo, which is featured each week on our Coffee Break page, is celebrating 100 strips of cute, cuddly -- and crass -- animals this week. The strip has run in newspapers, magazines and online publications across the country, and Strine is now hoping to expand to larger publications. Check out The Zoo, or send Strine a congrats at www.zoocomic.com.
