MOORHEAD – The numbers are in and by all accounts the 2015 concert season at Bluestem Center for the Arts was the best yet.
FARGO—While white blankets of snow are coming eventually, the near future continues to look more like a vibrant flannel, with a range of greens, yellows, oranges and reds displayed in the trees. With the warm weather winning out over frosts and freezes, the peak time for colors has been pushed back a few weeks.

The monthly Corks & Canvas art walks have been retired with the summer season, but the weather is so nice, you can still stroll between sips on the Kegs & Canvas Art and Ale Walk tonight. More than 20 downtown Fargo businesses up and down Broadway to Roberts Street and Eighth Street South feature area artists and beer from Drekker Brewing from 5 to 9 p.m. After that, Drekker, 630 1st. Ave. N., Fargo, hosts a post-party. The walk and looking at the art is free, but an ID and a $20 wristband is required for drinking.
For weeks, area fans have tuned in to "The Voice" to see how "Blind" Joe Bommersbach is faring on Team Blake. They can come out and hear it from the man himself when the 32-year-old Fargoan plays Speck's Bar, 2611 Main Ave., Fargo, Friday and Saturday night. Known to locals for his gritty brand of honky-tonk, it'll be interesting to see if he dishes about the show or performs "If It Hadn't Been for Love," the song that got all four judges to turn around. The music starts at 9 p.m. each night for this free, ID-only show. (701) 232-0202.
FARGO—Tonight's opening at the Uptown Gallery will be one of Steve Revland's last as owner of the downtown Fargo arts space. Revland announced last week that he was looking to sell the gallery by Nov. 15, or he would close up shop Dec. 1. Revland just celebrated the two-year anniversary of the gallery in mid-September. "My plan was to build a world-class gallery, which I think we've done," Revland said Tuesday.
The St. Paul-based Rose Ensemble doesn't play just classical music, but also ancient tunes. The 19-year-old group's catalog spans 1,000 years and 25 languages. The outfit, mostly singers, comes to Concordia College's Centrum, Knutson Campus Center, tonight for "The Last Queen of Hawaii," an evening of traditional song and dance, from bygone chants to more contemporary music, all while telling the story of Queen Lili'uokalani in 1893. The musical history lesson starts at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
The morning after a big party at an elite university provides a rich setting for Paul Downs Colaizzo's dark comedy, "Really Really." Using a cast of self-involved characters, the play explores the impact of casual sex, predatory behavior, over-indulgence and over-achieving among millennials. A panel discussion follows each performance. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Gaede Stage, Roland Dille Center for the Arts, Minnesota State University Moorhead. Tickets range from $10 to $20. https://tickets.mnstate.edu . (218) 477-2271.
FARGO – Necessity may be the mother of invention, but there's something to limitations delivering exciting creations.
FARGO – Erik and Jessica Larson and their family had reached a crossroads. They loved their 1974 north Fargo home in the Edgewood neighborhood, but the main floor kitchen, dining and living room area were feeling a bit close for the couple and their two elementary school-age children.
