Hello!

 The top 10 finalists of TV reality competition, So You Think You Can Dance, bring their moves to the Adler Theatre Tuesday. Prepare for an evening of captivating movement during a show celebrating their momentous 11th season. Ladies, spend some time reflecting with other women during Iron Sharpens Iron Conference. Gentlemen, gather up the crew and check out Caged Aggression XIV, a premiere mixed martial arts event at the RiverCenter tomorrow night.

 

 Warm up your weekend with some smooth jazz in the Redstone Room Saturday. Grammy nominated Jeff Lorber Fusion and special guest Eric Marienthal team up for this year's Smooth Jazz Festival. Then next week, uncover tunes derived from the Cajun culture of Louisiana right here in the Quad Cities when Beausoleil Avec Michael Doucet performs. Don't forget about Open Mic & Jam Wednesday, too!

 

 Ladder ball, bags, das boot pass, a pretzel eating contest, and more...find it all at Barrel House 211 Sunday as they host their Oktoberfest Bash! In addition to Great River Brewery's Oktoberfest Beer, you can expect to enjoy an evening of music, games, and good times galore. Word on the street is the Oktoberfest Burger will be back, too...nom nom nom.

 

 Whether you're looking to paint your own wine glass or brush up on your figure drawing skills, Atom Studio + Gallery offers art classes for all this week. Sign up for a class and make it a point to stick around after to peruse the other unique galleries within Bucktown Center for the Arts. If you're looking for more opportunities to work with art, check out the Figge art classes or the Re-Cre8 Studio event calendar.

 

 It's not quite the last Thursday of the month, but keep in mind the Figge is hosting PechaKucha Night twice this October. Tonight, engage yourself in presentations revolving around the Artists First Exhibit and hear the stories behind various pieces from the artists themselves. Remember the Quad Cities Food Hub celebrates the local harvest this evening as well.

 

See you downtown!

Please join us for "An Evening with Area Artists," the first annual fundraiser of artsBASICS, to be held October 15, 2014 at the Figge Art Museum, Davenport, IA. artsBASICS is a volunteer group of advocates that helps provide equal access to the arts for all students in the Davenport, IA school district.

Your hosts for the evening will be Dan Portes and Judy Shawver and emcees will be Nathan Porteshawver, Dan Sheridan, and Tom Vaccaro.

Find out how the creative process works by observing a variety of local artists, each in the midst of creating a work of art before your eyes, in what we call "The Quick Draw Event." Works of art will be completed during the event and the highest silent bidder will be able to take home a one-of-a-kind piece of art work at the end of the evening. Mingle with renowned artists of the Quad Cities in the elegant setting of the Figge Art Museum.

Enjoy appetizers while you take in the creative process. There will be additional silent auction items, a 50/50 raffle, and an opportunity to win a gift certificate worth up to $100 or a $1,500 piece of jewellery from a local jeweller. Cash bar will be provided. Doors open at 5:00 pm with events commencing at 5:30 pm. Tickets are $25 per person in advance through October 1st when purchased through the website http://l.facebook.com/l/iAQFq-8_3AQEO-JTizzxvMj-URpLoj9B84dxhuYtNrDv4UQ/www.artsbasics.org using PayPal. Tickets purchased after October 1st will be $30 per person. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door. For more information, please call 563-210-0137.
