What’s Up Missoula – March 3rd
It’s the first weekend in March, and that means First Friday in Missoula. If you partake in the monthly downtown art walk, you won’t want to miss out on your invitation to interact with artist RYAN! Feddersen’s “Resistance” exhibit. Feddersen harnesses the power of audience engagement, designing her exhibits to start conversation and encourage interaction. You’ll find Feddersen’s exhibit at the Missoula Art Museum.
The Taste, a fundraising event for the Montana Food Bank Network takes place Friday from 6-9 at Neptune Aviation featuring over 30 local food and drink vendors. The sold-out event is in its second-year. If you missed out, it should be a mainstay for years to come.
The Zootown Arts Community Center hosts its fifth-annual Mini Benefit auction next weekend. To encourage ticket sales and excitement, a display of Mini Benefit exhibits will be open from 5-8 PM at ZACC’s main gallery, 235 N. First St W. in Missoula. Tickets for the Mini Benefit itself, held at The Wilma on March 11th are nearing sell-out.
If you’re looking for live music this weekend, local favorite Umphrey’s McGee has a two-night stint at The Wilma, March 3rd and 4th. The jam band is known for experimenting with many musical styles, including rock, metal, funk, jazz, blues, electronic, bluegrass, and folk. Unlike groups like Phish and The Grateful Dead, Umphrey’s draws more inspiration from progressive rock bands and often mashup classics from all genres.
On Saturday night, you can catch Brothers Comatose at the Top Hat. And don’t forget, Elton John plays the Adams Center next Tuesday, the 7th.
