Benjamin Franklin Climbs 5,000 Stairs at The University of Washington's Red Square

Have you always dreamed of watching someone dressed like Benjamin Franklin climb 5,000 stairs? Today's your lucky day. This afternoon in the University of Washington's Red Square, historical presenter G. Robin Smith dons his Franklin garb and hauls himself up 5,000 stairs, to raise awareness and funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. (UW's Red Square, between Odegaard Library and Kane Hall, 2–4 pm, free.)



'Future So Bright' at Lee Center for the Arts

Best known for his experimental films, including The Subconscious Art of Graffiti Removal (a cheeky parody of Greenbergian art history), Portland's Matt McCormick is branching out into formal video art installations. This series is about ghost properties—bleached houses and gutted hotels sitting in gorgeous Western landscapes that seem to stretch on into infinity. Who knew it would take a filmmaker to bring aesthetic concerns back to video art? (Seattle University Lee Center for the Arts, 901 12th Ave, 296-2244. Opening 5–8 pm, free.)

    Another excellent thing you might want to do is go to Rebar tonite and check out the first show of TEATRO CON CARNE, the new monthly night I'm producing at Rebar. It's only $5 and it starts at 10pm. Tonite is a music night featuring kickass music from Danielli, Megasapien and Brush.

    Thank you...That is all...
