Rolling into the last pre-Christmas weekend, and we have some mighty fine events and Staff Picks to help break up your last-minute shopping excursions. 

Here are some highlights for Thursday, Dec. 18: 

LIVE BANDS | If you didn't read our interview with Jessica Hernandez in last week's issue, it's not too late to read up on the Detroit rock 'n' soul belter. Check it out, then consider making your way to The Bartlett tonight for Hernandez and her band The Deltas, along with Heavy Seventeen. Here's a little of what you'll hear: 

VISUAL ARTS | Local arts and technology pros worked with students on the MicroCinema Event, where they will debut some silent films made with original scores and soundtracks right here in Spokane. 

PERFORMANCE ARTS | Tonight at the Bing, it's a rare opportunity to witness some incredible visual arts and dance from the Masai people of Kenya, thanks to the efforts of Nicholas Sironka. It's an event called Friends of Sironka: A Christmas Special, and you should consider it a gift to yourself if you check it out. You might just see Inlander publisher Ted McGregor in the house; he wrote about the group in this week's Publisher's Note
