A band that claims to be Spokane’s loudest will play Friday night North Dam Park and Event Center.
The two-hour concert (7-9 p.m.) is free, sponsored by a hearing aid business (kidding, but it is free).
33 is allegedly responsible for forcing the management of popular music venues in Spokane to repaint interior walls with their 136-decibel sound. Just kidding about the paint, too, but I think that dB figure is right.
The band is being brought in by the Coulee Area Park and Recreation District.
Star gazers will have an opportunity to take advantage of an astronomy program, Saturday, Aug. 13.
The star gazer event will begin at Grand Coulee Dam’s Visitor Center auditorium at 7:15 p.m., and end up at Crown Point, using telescopes to search the skies.
The event is sponsored by the National Park Service and Washington State Parks, the Bureau of Reclamation and Grand Coulee Dam.
The program is similar to one held early in July.
The program begins with an introduction to the night sky by NPS Sky Ranger Janice Elvidge. That will take about 45 minutes.
The group will then gather at Crown Point, where telescopes will be set up for examination of a galaxy, nebula and the moon, as well as other wonders of the sky.
The entire program is free and suitable for persons of all ages.
Organizers encourage people to bring their telescopes and binoculars and to wear or bring a warm coat.
