For those reading from either Adams County or Couer D'alene, there's an event for you.

Monday, June 4th

Community Band - Looking for a musical evening? Spokane Falls Community College has a band that plays a medley of music. We once heard them perform Colonel Bogey's March. It was years ago, but it still haunts our ears. On the repertoire, selections from "Ben Hur". | 7:30-10 p.m. @ SFCC, 3410 W. Fort George Wright Dr.

Tuesday, June 5th

Transit of Venus - This is a rare event that you can only seen once. Venus will pass between the Earth and Sun. Since we live in the West Coast-ish, we'll get to see more of it than other parts of the country. It will be a nice sunset event, but you'll need the right tools to view it safely. | 3:05-9:48 p.m. @ Spokane

Jamal Ali - Hip hop at The Rocket Market? Say it isn't so. Might go well with the Transit of Venus. | 7:30-10 p.m. @ The Rocket Market, 726 E. 43rd Ave.

Referendum Battle Heats Up Statewide

Local supporters of the Marriage Equality Bill are hitting the road to celebrate the legislation signed into law by Governor Chris Gregoire earlier this month.

Occupy Spokane is spearheading a gathering planned with the LGBT Center at the rest area on along eastbound I-90 near Sprague starting Thursday morning at 4 a.m.

The groups will be there until Midnight encouraging travelers to not sign R-74, the referendum filed by the bill’s opposition to reverse the Governor’s decision.

Across the state, an effort to block the ballot title of Referendum 74 is heading to court. Preserve Marriage Washington has filed a court challenge to the Attorney General Office to change the title of the referendum saying it does the reflect the gender neutrality change for “husband” and “wife”.

They’re not the only ones challenging the title. Supporters of the new law are expected to challenge as well. They all have until next Monday to file their case. Challenges are typically held at the same meeting, but a hearing date hasn’t even been announced yet.
