The Adler Theatre will be bustling with activity this week beginning with the Spotlight Dance Cup and followed up by a Broadway performance of The Color Purple!  Nominated for eleven Tony Awards, The Color Purple's Grammy-nominated score is sure to please.  Buy tickets now to see next Thursday's performance by comedian and songwriter Rodney Carrington, too!

The Figge is packed with programming including the Fins & Feathers Opening Reception, W(h)ine & Art, the return of Thursdays at the Figge, a FREE family event, and showings of two films, The White Rose and Sophie Scholl.  There's plenty of reasons to visit the museum this week!

Fans of 80's rock legends are going to love Hairball - A Celebration of Arena Rock at the RiverCenter on Saturday!  On the other side of the street, the Quad Cities Chamber Silver Ball will be in full swing at the RiverCenter.  Tickets are still available for the general public, so click here to reserve your place at Silver Ball.

Ruby Would you rather be shopping than prepping for a Super Bowl party this Sunday?  If so, than plan on heading to The Ruby Slipper for their semi-annual sale!  They'll be open special hours from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

Open Mic Contest The increasingly popular Dubstep genre will be on full display at River Music Experience on Saturday when Ghost Science takes the stage in the Redstone Room.  Additional programming at RME this week includes performances by Paul Waters & The Lonesome Tears, Firesale, We Shall Be Bandits, River Prairie Minstrels, and more.  The Annual Open Mic Contest begins on Wednesday, too!

Jordan Danielsen and the Dani Lynn Howe Band are rocking Rhythm City Casino, and don't forget to grab your local goods at the Freight House Farmers Market.  Last, but not least, please support our neighbors up the street in the Hilltop Campus Village by attending their Open House on Tuesday.  The neighborhood is making great strides and you should see the progress for yourself!

See you downtown!
