The Weekday Roundup (3/31/14): Ghost, Weezer, and Women of Vision
As April approaches, there are only a few weeks left to see 101 Inventions That Changed the World at Discovery Place. The exhibit guides visitors through centuries of progress with towering displays of each invention. $16 for members, $20 for adults, $18 for kids and seniors. Check out a preview for the exhibit below.
At the Belk Theater, an otherworldly event is taking place–straight out of Hollywood. Adapted by its original screenwriter, this stage version of the film Ghost recreates the magic with an all-new score. The narrative follows Sam, a man who died but refuses to leave his endangered partner behind.
The careers of Weezer’s four members have seen both major successes and failures, but their fanbase continues to grow and maintain that the band has an unmissable live show. Wednesday’s small-club show at the Fillmore provides a rare opportunity to see the rock group with an intimate backdrop.
If you’re hanging out in Uptown Thursday, bouncer over to the Mint Museum to see their latest exhibition. Women of Vision: National Geographic Photographers on Assignment features the work of 11 photographers who captured the 100 exhibit photos, each of which tells a story about our planet and its people.
