Friday, April 25, 2014's Lowdown
(Above: A famous musician.)
Tonight up at the Van Duzer Theatre, a man who really needs no hype …
OK, that’s out of the way. Moving on.
You’ll recall yesterday we shamelessly devoted our Lowdown space to a colleague hosting an event. Today lightning strikes twice. Our KHUM radio friend Mike Dronkers will be overseeing proceedings up at HSU’s somewhat ambitiously titled Dance of the Century, the culmination of the school’s year of centennial celebratin’. HSU apparently feels fine with losing money on this free event which will feature raffle prizes, DJs Pressure/Anya, karaoke, dance performances, special screenings of the Centennial Documentary, a photo booth, games and free food (did you hear that last part, students?). Oh, and you’re supposed to dress like your fav decade.
Like yesterday, we’re going to let the people involved pitch it. Take it away, Dronk:
"A blizzard of instagrams." Wonderful. Other Friday options in your Lowdown below.
The Lowdown Fun Committee
Um, Disco Skate. Knock knock. Who's there? Disco Skate. Disco Skate who? Disco Skate and dat go skate too if it knows what's good for it.
If you're in the mood for local music check out Companion Animal at the Morris Graves. If you want to laugh with strangers about the absurdity of how we've spent most of our lives preparing to work a job that grinds us down to a small alienated shell of a soul, check out Office Space at the Eureka Theater.
