Michael Wille: Gates and Ways at Hoffman LaChance Contemporary (Friday)
In his artist statement for his new show Gates and Ways, Michael Wille makes it clear that his abstract paintings are created with the intent of slowing down the viewer. Each piece utilizes architectural remnants from cities Wille has visited, from KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa to the exotic destination of Cleveland. Gates and Ways opens with a free public reception from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, April 2, at Hoffman LaChance Contemporary (2713 Sutton Boulevard). Click here to read the rest of Paul Friswold's preview.

March 2010 Girl Next Door at Helen Fitzgerald's (Friday)
The fine folks over at are trying to find the hottest "girl next door" in St. Louis. Usually a monthly contest, this event will pick two girls for the Girl Next Door of The Year because February's contest was canceled. Unabashedly creepy, the event also promises you get to meet local sports talk radio people in the flesh. It kicks off at 9 p.m. at Helen Fitzgerald's (
Free Telescope Viewing at Saint Louis Science Center (Friday)
The Saint Louis Astronomical Society and the Saint Louis Science Center sponsor a free telescope viewing Friday starting at 6:45 p.m. on the open field next to the James S. McDonnell Planetarium in Forest Park (Clayton and Faulkner drives). Telescopes will be set up for your enjoyment, with expert guidance provided by experienced star gazers. And if tonight looks to be overcast, there are always indoor activities planned in the event of inclement weather. Click here for more info.

The Bad Bunny Holiday Party at The Pepper Lounge (Friday)
The Pepper Lounge (2005 Locust Street) is in the holiday spirit. Celebrate your Good Friday the way it probably wasn't meant to be celebrated. Doors open at 9 p.m., and the cover is free for those who arrive early, but only $5 for the late-comers. As part of the holiday theme, you'll get a chance to take your photo with the Bad Bunny.

Neil Young Trunk Show at Webster University (All Weekend)
Jonathan Demme presents a portrait of the artist exactly as he is in the new documentary Neil Young Trunk Show.

The Webster Film Series screens Neil Young Trunk Show at 7:30 p.m. in room 123 of Sverdrup Hall (8300 Big Bend Boulevard) and also at 10 p.m. in Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue) Friday and Saturday (April 2 and 3), and at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, April 4, in Moore Auditorium.
