You know all about the Inlander's vast array of event listings
, and the Staff Picks
selected by the folks working here. But sometimes you might not have time to check through the day's doings, and we're here to help by pulling a few highlights out of the mix for your perusal.
Here's what caught my eye for Thursday, Oct. 16:
| The Growlers are Cali boys, making their reverb-drenched dives into psychedelia not completely shocking. The band's latest album, Chinese Fountain
, arrived in September, and it's a fine listen top to bottom, evoking some serious dance grooves along with a nice dash of twang. The Growlers are playing The Bartlett
tonight, joined by openers The Garden. Here's a taste:
| If you're a lover of all manner of cuddly critters, head on down to the Knitting Factory tonight for Rescue on the Runway
, a benefit date auction and cocktail party benefitting the Spokane Humane Society.
SPORTS & OUTDOORS
| REI is offering another great class tonight, free of charge, this one on Snowshoeing Basics
, starting at 7 pm. This mention is also a good time to remind you to read all about the outdoors in our Outlander blog, so go do that
| Fancy yourself a Westerner? I bet the folks at the Westerners Spokane Corral meeting
might be able to teach you some things. The group meets for dinner and hosts a guest speaker every month, delving into all manner of Western lore and history.
| I'd be remiss if I didn't remind you one more time about the incredibly cool local event Spokane is Reading
, this year featuring Swamplandia!
author Karen Russell. You should really read our Listings Editor Chey Scott's interview with her
, and then make your way to the Bing tonight to hear Russell talk. It's free, so why wouldn't you?
