Check out an art show and benefit featuring Cats & Wieners at Resurrection Records on First Friday.

Ah, the sweet smell of spring. Gotta love it, right? Lots to do outdoors now that's it's warm (when it's not raining) and lots to do indoors, too. Find something to do in our event listings and Staff Picks.

Here are some things I found for the week ahead:

Monday, April 2

MUSIC | One hell of a way to start the week is this show at the Bartlett featuring No Joy, Cathedral Pearls and Newman.

COMMUNITY | If you have kids in your house enjoying spring break this week, how about signing them up for Kid's Spring Break Cooking Camp at Second Harvest?

Tuesday, April 3

FUNK | Tower of Power is celebrating 50(!) years with their current tour, and it's hard to go wrong when you listen to their funky stuff. Do it at the Fox tonight.

COMMUNITY | North Idaho College hosts a talk on being "Connected in a Divided World." Venerable Thubten Chodron, founder and abbess of Sravasti Abbey, the Buddhist monastery near Newport, Washington, is featured.

MUSIC | Soccer Mommy is getting great buzz for her new album, Clean, and with good reason. It's a tasty slab of indie-rock. We talked to Sophie Allison, the woman behind the Mommy — read our interview here before the show at the Bartlett, and give her a spin:

Wednesday, April 4

MUSEUMS | Ever wonder what went into the creation of the list of the Seven Wonders of the World? Find out at a free lecture tonight at the MAC.

Thursday, April 5

THEATER | The Spokane Civic's production of Dial M for Murder continues this weekend.

SOUL | Felix Cavaliere's Rascals hit Worley, Idaho, for a show at Coeur d'Alene Casino, and the pioneer of so-called "blue-eyed soul" still sounds great.

Friday, April 6

VISUAL ARTS | It's First Friday all over town, but you'll want to stop by Resurrection Records for sure for Cats & Wieners. Yes, it's cat and wiener-inspired art. And the sales go for a good cause: the cancer funds of Susan Webber and Kelly Fay Vaughn.

THEATER | It's part drama, part musical when Bust It Like A Mule goes down at the downtown library tonight.

FESTIVAL | Classical guitar masters from all over come to town for the 27th annual Northwest Guitar Festival at Gonzaga this weekend.

Saturday, April 7

MARIJUANA | NORML Washington hosts a screening of camp classic Reefer Madness, as well as a panel discussion on law and propaganda surrounding marijuana, at the Fox.
