New is good, but sometimes you want some familiarity. Some familiar faces—longtime artists on the scene, chefs on the screen, characters in a book or artists on an album cover—will provide company around town this weekend. Here are Forum staffers' top picks for events Thursday, Oct. 27, through Saturday, Oct. 29.
FARGO—You could understand if Anna Carol McCorison was a little scared to leave New York and move halfway across the country for a new job. And when she started as the new artistic director of the Fargo-Moorhead Community Theatre less than three weeks ago and stepped right into preparations for a new staged adaption of Stephen King's "The Shining," you could understand if she was a bit terrified. Instead, McCorison jumped right into the horror show that opens tonight as The Stage at Island Park is transformed into the most infamous hotel, the Overlook.
FARGO — The spooky season is upon us, and there are a frightening amount of Halloween events happening in the next week.
FARGO — There are party goers, party throwers, party people and party planners. None of them are as dedicated to partying as Andrew W.K. Since releasing his debut album, "I Get Wet," in 2001, he has talked about, advocated for and even demanded a party. Songs like "Party Hard," "It's Time to Party" and "Party 'til You Puke" make his intentions clear — and those were just off that first album.
FARGO—The Day the Music Died—Feb. 3, 1959, when Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and The Big Bopper perished in a plane crash en route to a show at the Moorhead Armory—was...
FARGO — Next summer is coming a little early. The Beach Boys are returning to the area to play Scheels Arena on April 28. The Surf & Soul Tour also features The Temptations. Both of the vocal groups played Bluestem Center for the Arts in Moorhead in the summer of 2014.
FARGO — Everyone's favorite young wizard returns to theaters starting Friday with a weeklong marathon of Harry Potter movies at West Acres Cinema. All eight movies will screen in order starting Friday with "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" and wrapping up Oct. 28 with "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2." Showtimes will vary.
Halloween may be 11 days away, but the area is getting into the spirit already with some fantastical events. From classical rock to classic silent movies, from a perpetual man-child's ability to fly to grown men and women looking to fly on two wheels, from the original "It" girl to tattooed ladies, there is plenty going on in town to capture imaginations.
EAST GRAND FORKS, Minn. — Molly Yeh is not from here. That is abundantly clear reading her recently released cookbook, "Molly on the Range: Recipes and Stories From an Unlikely Life on the Farm." Born to Jewish and Chinese parents in the Chicago area, Yeh studied percussion at Juilliard in New York, where she became passionate about food. It was also at Juilliard that she met Nick Hagen, a trombonist who convinced her to move back to East Grand Forks and his family's farm in 2013.
FARGO—Eighth Street South in Fargo is celebrating a special birthday this year. There may not be a cake or any candles to blow out. In fact, you can be sure the lights will stay on, all night, just as they have for 100 years. It was a century ago in November that the iconic streetlights on Eighth Street were first turned on, illuminating the finest Fargo homes at the time. Over the decades since, the old-fashioned lamps have shone through some dark years but have recently been re-energized.
