has a wide array of event listings
always at your easily searchable disposal, and the staff even picks some highlights, aka "Staff Picks
." But in case you don’t have the time to peruse each day, “What’s Up Today?” is here to highlight a few options.
Here are some things that jumped out at me for Friday, Oct. 10:
The Spokane International Film Festival
hosts a slew of international, independent film screenings, and tonight's show at the Magic Lantern is one you won't soon forget. Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead
is a Norwegian horror film about Nazi zombies. And just in case you didn't see the first installation, the story tracks the efforts of some, yes, Nazi zombies back from the dead to finish some of Hitler's unfinished business, and a young man, Martin, determined to stop them using all the anti-zombie skills he's learned on TV and in movies. It's a splatterfest ala Evil Dead (complete with a possessed arm), and some good Halloween season fun for horror fans. Z Nation
could take a few tips from this one.
Over in northern Idaho, the Coeur d'Alene Art Walk
is going on tonight, offer ample opportunity to catch some contemporary artists showing their work. Be sure to stop by the Art Spirit Gallery reception for artist Timothy Ely
, best known for his book-binding work.
Tonight marks the opening of the ninth annual Tactical Solutions Gaming Convention
over in Spokane Valley. All manner of miniature gamers, including Ancients, Napoleonics, WWII, WWI, the American Civil War and sci-fi are the focus of this year's proceedings.
And the Beyond Pink Designer Bra Fashion Show
at the Spokane Convention Center promises a silent auction, no host bar and hors d' oeuvres, and a fashion show featuring local artists and designers.
