Hello!

Matthew West Although the summer season may be over, there's still plenty of things to see and do downtown!  Matthew West, a Dove Award nominee, headlines at the Adler Theatre Saturday.  On Tuesday at the Adler, a performance of In the Mood will celebrate the music of Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Frank Sinatra, and other icons of the 1940's.

 

Living Proof Stop by Bucktown during Final Friday for opening night of the 2012 Living Proof Exhibit, which includes more than 100 pieces of art from cancer survivors.  This inspiring event will feature performances by Ellis Kell, ComedySportz, and more.

 

Described by Music Connection as "bohemian, intriguing, and introspective," John Common is an act worth checking out Friday at River Music Experience.  Tonight, another highly recommended eclectic band, Paper Bird, will take the stage.  Other great programming this week includes The Curtis Hawkins Band, Todd Clouser's A Love Electric, Community Drum Circle, QC Rock Academy, Blues Cafe, and more.

 

Pumpkin Ale Fall is here, and that means it's time for the Pumpkin Ale Tapping at Great River Brewery.  Join the brewers on Saturday to enjoy this seasonal favorite.  You won't want to miss seeing the ale flowing from giant pumpkins!  Brew fans should mark their calendar for next week's "Suds!" beer tasting event at German American Heritage Center, too.

 

Posing Beauty Tonight, the Figge is hosting its opening reception for the Posting Beauty in African American Culture Exhibit.  Check out the Curator Lecture on this great exhibit this weekend, too.  Participate in one of the museum's upcoming figure drawing, watercolor, and tapestry weaving classes, too.  There will be a fun Pastel Landscape Workshop and Arts Lovers Book Club this week, as well.

 

Mystery Rhythm City is featuring one more evening of their popular It's A Mystery Dinner Theater on Saturday! Reserve your seat today and plan to enjoy free music from Lee Blackmon both Friday and Saturday at the casino, too.  Don't forget to pay a visit to the Freight House Farmers Market this week while you're here!

 

See you downtown!
