WHAT'S UP TODAY? Ska-punk, Riverfront arts and a doc on those crazy Koch bros

There will also be a panel discussion that includes Rick Eichstadt from the Center for Justice and Ted Hensold, the president of Move to Amend. The $10 suggested donation will benefit Meals on Wheels.

VISUAL ARTS & COMMUNITY | Cultivate Spokane is holding its monthly meeting of the artistically minded tonight, and we're not just endorsing this because our founder Ted McGregor, Jr., is the guest speaker, on hand to talk about artist opportunities that will be available under the new Riverfront Park Master Plan. Really. I swear! 

MUSIC | In case you didn't get enough ska-punk fun when Less Than Jake traipsed through town, along come the Mad Caddies, headlining tonight at the Knitting Factory. Here's a taste:
