WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20, 2011 >>>

1. The Telephone Room Gallery has squeeze in Dead Loss, an installation inspired by solitary confinement, padded cells, and blanket forts by Jessica Bender, into their tiny exhibition space for the month of April. Give them a shout out here to check it out.

2. A thought-provoking panel discussion about farmworker and food bank issues and how these relate to a sustainable, just food system, the panel will ask, "Does it matter whether a tomato is local and organic if it was harvested by people who make so little money they cannot feed themselves, or who work under slave-like conditions?" Leading the discussion will be Pierce County Gleaning Project, Hilltop Urban Gardens, and University of Puget Sound Office of Spirituality, Service and Social Justice from 6-8 p.m. at the University of Puget Sound's Wheelock Student Center.

3. And now for something completely different. At 6:45 p.m. beginning at the sidewalk crossroads near the O'Grady Library at Saint Martin's University, and continuing on through the campus, will be a presentation of the timeless morality tale of Everyman, who is summoned by a displeased God to account for a misspent life. Bring a five spot and jump in.

4. Out of Sight, Out of Mind, a super group comprised of Don Izenman and Goodwin Trent, will pop out of the '60s for a night of great folk music and one-liners beginning at 7 p.m. inside A Rhapsody In Bloom on Sixth Avenue.

5. The Gruv Lounge's 4:20 Wildstyle Wednesday - featuring DJs Tres and Reign spinning indie hip-hop to sub step - will begin no where near 4:20, but rather 9 p.m. Most of the crowd won't know the difference.
