We might have a lot of April showers in store as we motor into spring, but that's no excuse for ignoring all the entertaining options in our event listings and Staff Picks

Here are a few options from the week ahead: 

Monday, March 28

LIVE BANDS | The Baby Bar hosts The Blind Pets and Guilt Gift, offering a little rock to open the week.

WORDS | The greatest stamp of approval a poet can receive is undoubtedly that of the The New Yorker. Robyn Schiff, who will read from her newest book of poems, A Woman of Property, as part of Gonzaga’s Visiting Writers Series, got the favorable nod. While the main appearance is at 7:30 pm, at 1:15 pm, she will also take part in a Q&A session at the Hemmingson Center.

LIVE BANDS | The second edition of the Northwest of Nashville series takes over The Bartlett, extending the St. Patty's Day vibe a bit with Irish-tinged tunes from An Dochas, Broken Whistle, Floating Crowbar and the Howling Gael Trio. 

Wednesday, March 30

ETC | We might have a rainy spring, but the dry summer days aren't far away. Learn how to be an Earth-friendly water-user with a free talk on Easy Water-Wise Gardening at the Spokane Valley Library. 

LIVE BANDS | Warren Haynes leads Govt Mule and has been a member of the Allman Brothers Band, The Dead and assorted other crews. He's on a solo tour supporting his bluegrass-tinged Ashes & Dust album. While it might be mellower than normal, expect a good ol' time at The Bing for this one. Here's a sample:
