Harveys Lake Tahoe has announced two more shows for its annual Summer Concert Series, Widespread Panic on July 6 and Tim McGraw on July 23 (see Lake Tahoe Action or head online), providing evidence that summer is just around the corner — even if winter doesn’t seem to want to let up just yet. There were reports that Lake Tahoe-area ski resorts were prime after the surprisingly strong storm this week. Keep those edges sharp. Here are a couple more picks for this week at Lake Tahoe:


I’m not quite sure what to think of Minneapolis, Minnesota’s, Heatbox, but he appears to be rocking a Nintendo Power Glove in his promotional pictures, and that’s all right with me. I am a fan of oddball artists who integrate looping into their songs, and he fits that bill. Heatbox plays a free show at Steamers Bar & Grill Friday night, March 25. It should be a spectacle if nothing else. More information can be found in Lake Tahoe Action.

Banff Mountain Film Festival

We’ve got two film festivals at the South Shore this week, and both are worth your time. The first one, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour, takes place Monday, March 28, and features selections from the international talent highlighted at Canada’s Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival. More information can be found on page 2 in today’s Tribune.

Wild and Scenic Film Festival

The next film festival of the week takes place Thursday, March 31, and features adventure films with environmental messages. The question-and-answer session with South Shore filmmaker and top-notch fisherman Mikey Wier should be especially interesting. More information can also be found in Lake Tahoe Action or in Saturday’s Tribune.
