Boyz II Men bring the retro soul, plus Native American myth-busting in Spokane tonight


Happy Hump Day, folks. You're on the downhill to the weekend, so go ahead and enjoy yourself! Plenty of options for you in our event listings and Staff Picks

Here are some highlights I found for Wednesday, April 8: 

LIVE BANDS | Boyz II Men are still going strong a couple decades after they became one of the biggest-selling R&B acts ever. Read our interview with the group, and consider checking them out for some retro tunes at Northern Quest. Here's a reminder of what they'll be delivering: 

WORDS | Colville Trib member Laurie Arnold, Gonzaga's Director of Native American Studies, will talk about the Columbia Plateau tribes' experiences with immigrants on the Gonzaga campus at 5:30 pm in lecture called Mythbusting: Native American History & Contemporary Issues.

COMMUNITY | The Women's Club of Spokane hosts regular contra dances every Wednesday. Don't know what that is? No problem — get there at 7:15 pm to learn a few steps, then dance to the live band all night.
