Best Bets: It's a zoo at the Replay
Final Fridays is upon us once again, and of course we recommend you go to that. Here's an itinerary of what's going on downtown, in the arts district and everyplace else this month. But just to show you that that isn't the only thing happening this weekend, here's some other stuff:
The Kansas University Libraries present “The Magic of Oz: A Collection Celebrating a Classic,” an exhibit featuring rare items and artifacts pertaining to author L. Frank Baum and his "Wizard of Oz" book series, including early editions and foreign translations, illustrations, materials from the 1903 Broadway musical and more. The magic will be on display at the Kenneth Spencer Research Library through April 19.
The Fox and the Bird is a small folk collective of singers and songwriters who emerged from the Annex House, a now-defunct suburban music venue in Dallas, to touring, producing and self-releasing their own music. They've taken their orchestral folk music on the road in support of their sophomore album, "Darkest Hours," and Friday they'll be bringing Everyone But Pete along with them to the Replay Lounge for a 6 p.m. show. (Don't worry, Pete's invited as well.)
Liberty Hall presents the 2014 Kansas Music Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, honoring the state of Kansas’ top musical acts of yesteryear. This year’s inductees include the KC pop-fusion band Glow, Jimmy Dee and the Fabulous Destinations and the early-'70s rock ‘n’ roll R&B group Beast out of Hays, the Wichita Linemen out of, um, Wichita, and many more. The ceremony is Saturday starting at 6:30 p.m., with the doors opening at 6; general admission tickets are $30.
