Hop to it with this weekend's fun events in Fargo-Moorhead
Looking for something to do around town? Here are 4 ideas to get you out and about.
The Everly Brothers Experience
Thursday, April 14
After rocking in bands The Janks and Bird Dogs, brothers Zachary and Dylan Zmed shifted gears and focused on harmonies that influenced them. The sons of 1980s heartthrob actor Adrian Zmed (“T.J. Hooker,” “Grease 2,” “Dance Fever”) return to town with The Everly Brothers Experience , playing tunes like “Bye Bye Love,” “Wake Up Little Susie,” “All I Have to Do is Dream” and more. This ID-only show starts at 8 p.m. Thursday night at Sanctuary Events Center in downtown Fargo. Tickets range from $26 to a table for four for $144, plus fees. Tickets are available at jadepresents.com and 866-300-8300.
The Fargo Theatre’s Classic Film Series will purify itself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka with a screening of “Purple Rain” on Thursday night . The Prince-powered 1984 film showcases a section of the Minneapolis music scene in the early 1980s, with not only his Revolution, but also Morris Day and the Time, Apollonia 6 and former Revolution guitarist Dez Dickerson. In 2019, the Library of Congress added the title to the U.S. National Film Registry for being “culturally, historically and aesthetically significant.” The musical roles at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $5.
Saturday, April 16
Easter gets rolling this Saturday morning with Eggstravaganza at Fargo’s Skate City, 3302 Interstate Blvd. S . From 10 a.m. to noon, the Easter Bunny will welcome families for skating and holiday fun. The Easter Bunny will have plenty of candy and prizes to go around.
Amanda Standalone & Kwaician
The new Fargo-Moorhead community stage is set up at the Hjemkomst Center in Moorhead and will welcome a pair of local singer-songwriters this Saturday. Americana guitarist and washtub bassist Amanda Standalone has been playing stages for a decade, but things are taking a twist with her new concept album, “You’re Still Here,” inspired by real-life supernatural experiences. Singer and guitarist Kwaician recently released a new album, “Best for Now,” a mix of soulful folk and R&B pop. Music starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10.
