Buzz Bin 

by Michael Bowen & r & & r & Blam! Kapow!


He draws Superman; she kissed him. Meet Portland's Matthew Clark (of DC Comics) and Livingston, Montana's Margot Kidder (of the Christopher Reeve movies) at Spokane's debut ComiCon on Saturday, May 26, from 10 am-4 pm at Gonzaga's Cataldo Hall. Tickets: $3; $2, with a can of food; free, children. Visit www.myspace.com/SpokaneComiCon07 or call 328-3865. And we'll trade you an Incredible Hulk No. 181 for an Aquaman No. 3.





Following Krista


In May 1998, Whitworth grad Krista Hunt Ausland was killed in a bus crash while doing community development work with her husband in Bolivia. Wanting to encourage young Christian adults to devote themselves to service projects in developing countries, her parents are hosting a conference this Sunday, May 27, from 10 am-7 pm at Davis Lake (an hour north of Spokane) to include worship, meals, and an address by Norway's ambassador to the United States, Knute Vollebaek. Cost: $25. Visit www.kristafoundation.org or call 465-5772.





A Real, Live Pretty Pony


That's what the ongoing Spokane Children's Theatre production of Cinderella features. During the wedding scene of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, Snickers pulls the pumpkin carriage right onstage -- and even takes a bow during the curtain call. But you've only got four chances left to pet the pony: after the performances at SCC's Lair on Friday, May 25, at 7 pm; on Saturday, June 2, at 1 pm and 4 pm; and on Sunday, June 3, at 1 pm. Tickets: $8; $6, children. Visit www.spokanechildrenstheatre.org or call 328-4886.





We Swoon for a Good Bassoon


Hindemith, Chr & eacute;tien, Szervanszky and Fine -- no, they're not a law firm. They're the composers whose works will be played by the Solstice Quintet in a concert on Saturday, May 26, at 3 pm at the WSU Art Museum -- and it's free. Call (509) 335-3970.





Eagle Ears


When the EWU Symphony Orchestra performs its spring concert in the Music Building Recital Hall on Thursday, May 31, at 7:30 pm, listen for the EWU Concerto Competition winners and for the three-note opening figure that recurs among the Czech melodies of Antonin Dvorak's Eighth Symphony. Morihiko Nakahara of EWU and the Spokane Symphony will conduct. Tickets: $5; $3, seniors; free, EWU students. Call 359-2241. n
