The cocktail-culture festival Paris of the Plains
is in full swing this week. It continues tonight at the Kill Devil Club. Recent Pitch
Music Award winner Mark Lowrey leads a 12-piece swing band through big-band standards with an emphasis on the Kansas City jazz sounds of yore. Forty dollars gets you in the door, plus three drink tickets and passed hors d'oeuvres. This event sold out last year, so if you're interested, it might be a good idea to reserve tickets ahead of time. Go here
