What to do in Bozeman, 4/23 - 4/29

Editor's note:  Join our weekly email list today and 'What to do in Bozeman this week' will be delivered to you every Wednesday.

PechaKucha Nights return to Bozeman
Where:  The Ellen Theatre
When:  WEDNESDAY (4/23) and THURSDAY (4/24), doors at 6:30 p.m.  
Why:  This season's rundown includes those fabulous 20 x 20 features on the future of human labor in an era of robots, 'I am hamburger,’ and "Confessions of a teenage carny" from presenters including George Keremedjiev, Tom Dickson, and a Japanese exchange student Mizuki Ono. We do want to pass on one other notation, in case you were planning on double-dipping: "All presentations will be given on both nights."


Bobcat Fest on Main
Where:  Downtown Bozeman 
When:  FRIDAY (4/25), from 5 - 8 p.m. 
A fine opportunity to celebrate the college spirit that MSU brings to Bozeman (and wish those departing for summer "farewell"). L
ive music by Alter Ego, free giveaways, and there'll be complimentary food and drinks for everyone. It's open to the public, of course, and the hometown institution proudly states: "This event will not be cancelled due to weather." Go Bobcats!  


SPORT -- CPT Jeremiah Sypes Memorial Run 
Where:  Lewis and Clark Park in Belgrade, Mont.
When:  SATURDAY (4/26), starting at 7 a.m.
CPT Jeremiah Sipes was an MSU alum and a cadet with the Army ROTC program. In honor of his untimely passing, MSU Army ROTC is pround to announce this Memorial Run (9K and 1 mile fun run) "with all proceeds going towards the WARRIORS AND QUIET WATERS FOUNDATION, bringing traumatically injured U.S. servicemen and women from Iraq and Afghanistan to Montana in order to utilzie the therapeutic experiences of this great state." $20, RSVP at 406-994-4022.


Bozeman Clean Up Day
Where:  Bogert Park Pavilion
When:  SATURDAY (4/26), meeting at 8:30 a.m.
Why:  Volunteers NEEDED! Fun GUARANTEED! The City of Bozeman will provide gloves, vests, trash bags, as well as directions on where you might be most helpful at picking up "winter's leftovers." Afterwards, all those involved will reconvene at Bogert for a free lunch and exhibitions from this year's "Sustainability Fair" from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

MUSIC — Peelander Z (Japanese comic action punk band)
Where:  Zebra Cocktail Lounge
When:  FRIDAY (4/25), Doors at 8 p.m.
Why:  Okay, I need to type that again just for the fun of it: Japanese comic action punk bank. Based in NYC and originally formed in '98 as Peelander Yellow, this band has garnered coverage from the cream of the American music industry crop, like SPIN, Rolling Stone Magazine, NPR, and the Village Voice. $8 for "intense audience participation," Japanese anime costumes, human bowling, The Red Squid, and they tell us it's "fun for the entire family." (Sounds like all the right kinds of 'freaky' to us.)

And "the smartest thing you can do in Bozeman this week" is:  

LECTURE — The Hallstatt Culture: Dawn of the Iron Age in Central Europe
Where: Museum of the Rockies' Hager Auditorium
When: THURSDAY (4/24) from 6 - 7 p.m.
Why:  Time to put those thinking caps on: Hrvoje Potrebica uncovers the characteristic features of the cultural complex of the Hallstatt Culture (~800-450 BC), what archaeologists call the Early Iron Age groups of Central Europe. These groups were completely independent politically and to some extent culturally different from one another, but they were interconnected by a vast trading network which made the material culture, technology and basic social ideas similar across the region. FREE and open to the public... and I need to type that one more time, too: H-r-v-o-j-e P-o-t-r-e-b-i-c-a.
