Wednesday To-do: March 31

In case you didn’t hear, a giant elephant arrived on the town square early this morning and will be hanging around for about six weeks.

Her name is Nomkhubulwane and she’s made from recycled tires. 1.3 tons of recycled tires, that is.

The idea is that since the elephant is the largest land mammal and can serve as a symbol of the possible threat that an expanding industrial development may represent to all forms of life, the artist behind this project believes Nomkhubulwane could help us contemplate issues of co-existence and how we now need to live.

Fayetteville is one of six cities that she’s traveling to and word on the street is that Walmart helped with the cost of bringing her here as did as few other local donors.

In short, there is a giant elephant on the square and you should check it out. If you wanna.

Speaking of giant animals, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad is at George’s tonight with G Love & Special Sauce. If you didn’t win tickets, they’re $20 each and there are still some available.

Over at Rogue, locals Rollo Tumasi and One Rung Ladder are set to play with European Sons. Anybody got a European Sons link to share?

Smoke & Barrel has Scott Leeper (Ben Miller Band), Walton Arts Center continues South Pacific and FIX has DJs Beat Bachs and Nicholas Scott scheduled for tonight.
