'Secret Spokane, Center of the Cold War' at the MAC




For thirteen days in October 1962 the world waited on what seemed the brink of nuclear war during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Even though events unfolded thousands of miles from here, the Inland Northwest and Spokane were at the center of the crisis. A chain of nuclear missiles surrounding the city were aimed directly at Cuba; the only missiles in the United States' nuclear arsenal capable of hitting the small Caribbean island. Don't miss 'Secret Spokane, Center of the Cold War' a special 50th Anniversary exhibition at the MAC now through October 27 only. The exhibit features a recreated Atlas missile launch control room, historic photos of the nine missile sites that used to ring Spokane and a Nike missile that used to protect Fairchild Air Force Base and its nuclear ready B-52s.

Jake Shimabukuro and his ukulele at the Bing Monday at 7:30




It's rare for a young musician to earn comparisons to the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis. It's even harder to find an artist who has entirely redefined an instrument by his early thirties. But Jake Shimabukuro (she-ma-boo-koo-row) has already accomplished these feats, and more, in a little over a decade of playing and recording music. On the ukulele.

Yes, the ukulele. In the hands of Shimabukuro, the traditional Hawaiian instrument of four strings and two octaves is stretched and molded into a complex and bold new musical force. On an album like his new 'Peace Love Ukulele,' Jake and his 'uke' effortlessly (it seems) mix jazz, rock, classical, traditional Hawaiian music and folk, creating a sound that's both technically masterful and emotionally powerful...and utterly unique in the music world.

Monday evening, October 22 7:30 at the Bing Crosby Theater. Go to bingcrosbytheater.com for tickets.
