Moody Little SisterMoody Little Sister, November 19, Lincoln City

On Saturday, November 19, Lincoln City Cultural Center is proud to welcome Naomi Hooley and Rob Stroup, on stage. Rob and Naomi perform as Moody Little Sister and specialize in songwriting that is emotionally moving and structured beautifully, with solid instrumentation and a sense of community. Three years ago, after a violent crowd in a small town bar, Naomi and Rob found a different path: house concerts, back yards and “camping concerts” where fans enjoy nature, hang with the band and become part of the tribe. These newlyweds, who got married after a concert on Aug. 27, are just back from their “Southwest Honeymoon Tour.” where they’ll play two sets of original folk piano, guitar, percussion and vocals,.

Doors to the LCCC auditorium, 540 NE Hwy. 101, Lincoln City, will open at 6:30 pm. for the show starting at 7 p.m. First-come, first-serve seating will be at small tables and in theatre-style rows. Refreshments are available for purchase. Advance tickets for the Nov. 19 show are $20. (www.lincolncity-culturalcenter.org; 541-994-9994).

Rain activated artRain-activated Art - Through November 27, Tillamook

The Tillamook Forest Center invites visitors to bring raingear through November 27 to witness a unique outdoor art exhibit that can only be seen when things get wet. Using an invisible paint that is reveals the stenciled images after it rains, Rainforest Revelations: Rain-activated Outdoor Art showcases creatures native to temperate rainforests.

After soaking in the outdoor art, visitors can come inside to see Ciel Downing’s forest photography. “Fortune has permitted me to live in a place that commands one to feel alive and document the grandeur: the Great Pacific Northwest,” said Ciel. “I make every effort to honor it with my lens and leave both the world and its creatures as I found them.”
Celebrate the final month of the Center’s milestone 10th anniversary with these art installations. The Center is closed December through February. (503-815-6803; www.tillamookforestcenter.org)
