Mayor in a Bucket


Mary Verner got a Today Show photo op Tuesday morning when she was interviewed while going over Spokane Falls in a barrel, er, riding the gondola. Did the NBC advance scouts coordinate with Avista to open up the waterfall spigot?





Rhythmic Intensity


If that's the criterion, then the winners at Symphony on the Edge on Friday night were John Mackey's "Strange Humors" and Evan Chambers' "Crazed for the Flame." The Red Hook ESB wasn't half-bad either. Beer and violins in a rock-club atmosphere: Classics at the Fox, take note.





Ten More Years!


That's our Get Lit! campaign slogan. Diana Abu-Jaber captivated a small but enthusiastic audience at the Bing on Thursday night by discussing her family, her writing process, and her most recent novel, Origin. On Sunday, Toby Wolff recounted anecdotes of every dog lover's favorite novelist, Albert Payson Terhune, then read one of his own shaggy-dog stories. Is the turtlenecked-and-mustachioed Wolff the go-to guy when Central Casting needs a creative writing prof, or what?





Still Eckart's Buddy


Morihiko Nakahara has been named music director of the South Carolina Philharmonic in Columbia. Fortunately, that doesn't mean he's leaving us. Nakahara has re-upped for two years and gotten a new title; as Resident Conductor, he'll continue guiding several concerts each season here in Spokane.





They Come Not Single Spies


... but in battalions. (Claudius says that in Hamlet. We're not sure what he means, either.) Meanwhile, the state of Denmark will be shaken, not stirred, on Friday night at Sandpoint's Panida Theater, when six actors from the Idaho Shakespeare Festival will present a one-hour, James Bond-style production of the Danish play. (Is it cursed, too?) Tickets: $9; $6, students. Visit panida.org or call (208) 263-9191.

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
