Behanding Is Blue Barn at its Best

By Warren Francke

 

A Behanding in Spokane is the Blue Barn at its best with Kevin Lawler directing Thomas Becker as Cunningham, the grim sociopath in search of his missing left hand.

Quick perspective: This company’s treatment of such Edward Albee plays as Three Tall Women and The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia? along with Vieux Carre by Tennessee Williams rank near the top of my lifetime of theater-going...

<p>  Spruce is cozily stuffed with lots of luxurious items.</p>Lux On Leavenworth

Tucked away in a little brick building in a most unassuming spot, Spruce, an interior and gift boutique, is almost discreet enough to pass by without knowing. But the little shop on 50th and Leavenworth manages to burst enough personality from the front windows to pique the curiosity of passersby.

Spruce is a treat for the senses. Entering the store, I was greeted with an abundance of colors, patterns, and the...

Pick: Birthday Suits

February 22
Birthday Suits
Slowdown, 729 North 14th St.
9 p.m., $7, theslowdown.com

Minnesota-based duo plays a big, straightforward brand of garage rock that incorporates elements of punk-pop and noise rock that's hinged on steady snare-drum thwap and the melodic buzz of Hideo Takahashi's huge guitar riffs. Takahashi favors simple lyrical lines, letting the songs stay short and punchy. The band is releasing...

<p>  Cochance and Black Jonny Quest (right)</p>Down with OPP

If I had a nickel for every time I overheard someone mutter the phrase “there’s nothing to do in Omaha”, I’d have enough nickels right now to buy an Hermes Birkin bag.  And yet, on any given weekend, I’ll wind up with a Facebook event invite list so long that I could probably read ‘Crime and Punishment’ from start to finish in less time than it takes me to actually sort through all of them. (Granted I only own the...

Raashan Ahmad February 13

            Oakland native Raashan Ahmad is perhaps the most congenial artist to ever walk the face of this earth. As a member of the Oakland hip-hop collective, Crown City Rockers, Ahmad exuded positivity as he effortlessly rhymed over funk-da-fied bass lines and colorful keys. Ahmad has been performing for years and only recently really started blossoming on his own. That has required a ton of work....
