The top TV event of the week goes down tonight when Project Runway (10 p.m., Bravo) returns for its fourth season. The fashion design competition has been off the air for more than a year thanks to contestant mentor Tim Gunn's other work commitments, but the designers are finally ready to "make it work" once again, starting tonight.
Though I have zero interest in the fashion industry, I love this show dearly for its mastery of the reality show competition format. Personality clashes definitely play a part in the entertainment, but the focus always returns to the designers skills—or lack thereof. The formula has worked in spinoff shows Top Chef and Top Design, but Runway is the original and the best.
In terms of live music, there's nothing I can promise you will love, but a couple shows have potential to be a good time. Your top options are as follows:
•Motorists, a new, young band of locals influenced by At the Drive-In, Arcade Fire, Bear vs. Shark and other emotive indie rock acts, plays at High Five, 1227 N. High St. 2007 Artist to Watch Blake Miller is on the bill as well, plus Burning Graceland and Promise Me Silence, two acts I know little about.
•Up in Westerville, Otterbein College Campus Center, 100 W. Home St., is hosting a benefit for Rwandan refugees with performances by the hard-touring Jonathan Hape, Ryan Smith and more. Admission is $2, and the show starts at 7 p.m. Click here for more details.
