SpongeCake and the Fluff Ramblers 7:30 p.m. today, Der Hinterhof, 321 9th St., free, 548-5250
They describe themselves as the illegitimate lovechild of 80s Grateful Dead and 90s String Cheese Incident, and they are bringing some serious groove to Leavenworth after having toured all over the States. Even if you don’t go to dance to their ineffably funky sounds, at least go for their bizarre name.
Isabel Suppé 7 p.m. today, Twisp River Pub, 201 N. Methow Valley Hwy., by donation, 997-6822
“The anchors blow out, and the ice explodes. It’s over. Four hundred meters to the ground. Between here and the glacier, there is only ice and almost-vertical rock. At the bottom a berschrund waiting to swallow our bodies.” This is an excerpt from Starry Night, Suppé’s account of her 1,100 foot fall while climbing in the Bolivian Andes and the amazing story of survival that follows. Suppé will be speaking about her book and signing copies.
“Art” 7 p.m. Saturday, Nifty Theater, 201 Locust St., $5 single, $8 couples, 668-6888
This show is not only a comedic, Tony Award-winning script, but a tribute by the Mission Creek Players to their late director Paul Burke who passed away this June on the closing night of the earlier performances of the show. The proceeds will be split between the Nifty Theater and the Mission Creek Players to then be disbursed as two $250 scholarships to Wenatchee Valley College students interested in theater.
“Muddy Sons” 6 p.m. Saturday, White Heron Cellars, 23832 Fine Wine Rd. NW, $10, 797-9463
These guys are about as bluesy as it gets- with a little grit thrown in for good measure. They’ve toured nationally, released multiple albums between the two of them, and have made quite an impression on the Chairman of the European Blues Association who said of them, “Raw, hard, and in your face, with angle grinder guitar and drums, The Muddy Sons occupy a space somewhere between The White Stripes and Son House.” The show will be outdoors and play until sunset. More info at whiteheronwine.com.
