Notebook: Bitterroot releases new EP; Waseca looking for toilet humor



The Center — which is now seated in a new, two-story location a few blocks away from its old location on State Street — is looking for artists to submit art for its bathroom door signs.

As the newsletter states: “Images may have something to do with being a man or a woman, it can be funny or serious, or something in between. There are no subject rules as long as it is not gross, inappropriate, or a total embarrassment.”

All types of media are accepted, but they must be presented on cardstock no larger than 8-inches-by-10-inches. Works will be hung for a minimum of one month. If the words “Men’s Room” and/or “Women’s Room” are not clearly incorporated into the design, they will be added at the bottom when laminating.

Those interested, however, must sign up in person at the arts center.

-- Want to play for a winner?

The St. Peter-based Govenaires Drum and Bugle Corps — which happens to be a three-time Drum Corps Associates Class A champion — have openings in all sections. Anyone with experience — whether marching band, concert band or dance — is welcome to join.

The next rehearsals are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday at St. Peter High School. Those interested are asked to check the Govenaires’ Facebook page to RSVP and receive more details.

Instruments and equipment are provided, but new brass players are recommended to bring their own instruments, if possible.

The Govenaires’ 2013 production is “Chasing Hollywood.”
