As it is Wednesday, all I can think about is an overly excited camel belting out “hump daaaayyeee” across a rather boring office and how many others like myself are eagerly anticipating the weekend. But who said Wednesday can’t be great. Here are a few things to do in Asheville making my Wednesday much more interesting than yours.
Guest Appearances at Comic Envy
Comic Envy on Tunnel Rd. will be hosting two of the comic book industries most talented writers, Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue Deconnick. Matt Fraction is known for Hawkeye, Sex Criminals, FF, and Satellite Sam among others, and his wife Kelly Sue Deconnick is known for Pretty Deadly (one of my personal favorite series) and ghost, as well as numerous titles in the marvel universe. I will be somewhere in the middle of the line eagerly anticipating autographs.
Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Parking Lot at the former Bilmore Square Mall
If you feel the need for adventure, use your whip and swing on down to Cinebarre at the former Biltmore Square Mall for a free outdoor screening of “The Raiders of the Lost Ark”, by far my favorite movie in the Indiana Jones Trilogy*. The movie, as always, will start at dusk.
Seth Walker Album Release
Okay, so I’m a sucker for music, and Seth walker’s awesome bluesy tone has me completely stoked. Check out our other article for all the sweet details of his cd release tonight night at The Grey Eagle.
Crazy Tom Banana Pants, River Rats at The Odditorium
Grab your weird friends and head on out to The Odditorium tonight in West Asheville to see Demon Waffle, Crazy Tom Banana Pants, and Andrew Scotchie & The River Rats play some crazy tunes all night long. The fun starts at 9 PM and its only $5 to get in the door!
Game Central Station
If all these other activities are not your thing, check out whats going on at The Hop on Merrimon. Multiverse Asheville is hosting Game Central Station tonight from 6 – 9 PM. Immerse yourself with other geeks, play some Mario Kart, or have the choice between a variety of other board and video games to play. It promises to be a good time!
