(West Seattle, free)

3. Movie Night
Catch a screening of Oscillate, which June Zandona and Daniel Costa co-created during the V2 Dance Film Residency last year, and stay on for Retrospective Exhibitionist by Miguel Gutierrez.

(Capitol Hill, free)

MUSIC

(Ballard, $10)

10. CODA: 012 (Live)
In a rare exhibition, CODA, typically an immersive and collaborative bass music night, will feature live music from Justin Hartinger, Qreepz, and Jamie Blake with Yohiness, and DJ sets from Lady Coco, Baloogz, and DJ Marvelous.

12. Emma Lee Toyoda, Matriarch, Scorn Dog
With a lo-fi instrumental sensibility and a deep, incantatory voice, Emma Lee Toyoda makes music that only sounds simple. Her album, Sewn Me Anew, is full of rich, complex delights that evoke the kind of private sadness that often translates into unforgettable performances. It also foretells a promising future. SEAN NELSON
(Downtown, $8/$10)

13. Foresteater, Witherward, Drifter Luke
Foresteater is the live dreamy psych rock band version of Phoenix-based artist Mikey Pro’s musical vision, which was created after he had a dream about “a band playing on an island in outer-space surrounded by electric rainbows.” They’ll be joined by Witherward and Drifter Luke.
(Greenwood, $5)

14. Guardian Alien, Stereo Embers, Kim Virant
Any musician who emulates late-1990s/early-’00s Boredoms automatically earns my respect and undivided attention. For example, Brooklyn’s Guardian Alien, who feature maniacal drummer Greg Fox (ex-Liturgy, ex-Dan Deacon) and vocals/electronics manipulator Alexandra Drewchin. They came out of the gate with 2012’s maximalist psychedelic odyssey See the World Given to a One Love Entity, which captures the same centrifugal frenzy as Boredoms’ Vision Creation Newsun. That is not easy to do, people. Spiritual Emergency followed in 2014, taking a more insular yet no less brain-boggling assault on avant-rock decorum. It’s usually the case with these Boredoms-inspired groups that their live performances exceed what they achieve on record. Which means you should rearrange your life in order to catch Guardian Alien’s outward-bound excursions into sublime sonic madness. DAVE SEGAL
(Ballard, $10)

15. Hexheart, Voicecoil, Blakk Glass
Jasyn Bangert of God Module has a new project, Hexheart, which incorporates darkwave electronics, post-punk-adjacent guitar work, and low, entrenched vocals. They’ll be joined by Voicecoil and Blakk Glass.

(Georgetown, $6)

17. Quinn The Band, Human Ladder, Red Heart Alarm
Singer-songwriter and guitarist Jeremy Quinn MacRae has stepped out from the shadow of previous bands and started spotlighting his own solo work as Quinn The Band. He’ll be joined live by Human Ladder and Red Heart Alarm.
(Ballard, $8)

18. You May Die in the Desert, Barrows, Chrome Lakes, Slumberbox
I didn’t realize it until I checked the band’s website recently, but local trio You May Die in the Desert have been making music for over a decade. They were a band who were always around, popping up on bills left and right, wowing crowds with ridiculously tight sets and reliably great music, but who never quite broke through to the big venues and national audiences. That didn’t stop them from producing two albums and an EP that are alternately beautiful and crushing, and which became more fully realized the longer they stuck together—something like the prettiness of Explosions in the Sky delivered with the urgency and bite of These Arms Are Snakes. The few recent audio/video snippets they’ve teased online lately also show a band who aren’t done yet, which means there’s still time for the listening public to catch on. TODD HAMM
(Eastlake, $5/$8)

PERFORMANCE

19. Rocky Horror
Relive your freaky and sexually confusing introduction to alt-queer musicals with this production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show by Island of Misfit Toys.
(Greenwood, $10/$14)

READINGS & TALKS

20. Nathan Hill: The Nix
In his review of The Nix for NPR, Jason Sheehan admiringly and almost lovingly describes the addictive nature of Nathan Hill’s 620-page novel, writing that the “looping, run-on, wildly digressive pages which, somehow, in their absolute refusal to cling together and act like a book, make the perfect book for our distracted age.” In the New York Times review (titled “Nathan Hill Is Compared to John Irving. Irving Compares Him to Dickens.”) Alexandra Alter says that The Nix is about “politics, online gaming, academia, Norwegian mythology, social media, the Occupy Wall Street protests and the 1960s counterculture.” In short, this reading looks fun.
(Capitol Hill, free)

21. Richard V. Reeves
Richard V. Reeves (author, journalist, and Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution) will discuss and sign copies of Dream Hoarders: How the American Upper Middle Class Is Leaving Everyone Else in the Dust, Why That Is a Problem, and What to Do About It.
