This Week’s All-Ages Action
KHAELA MARICICH AND MELISSA DYNE
Khaela Maricich is also known as the beloved musician the Blow. Melissa Dyne is an installation and conceptual artist. Together they’re presenting a collaborative “music-based performance piece” to share their experiences of being less-than-traditional artists in the music and art world. I know—yawn, right? But since everything Maricich touches turns into something both entertaining and lovely (you have heard her album Paper Television, right?), chances are tonight will follow suit. Henry Art Gallery, 7 pm, $8–$10.
I stopped giving a shit about Against Me! when drummer Warren Oakes left the band and they started unapologetically ripping off Springsteen while singing songs about being a teenage anarchist. Funny story, though: George Rebelo, the drummer of Hot Water Music who replaced Warren, has since gone back to HWM full-time (fuck, yeah!), and the band’s new drummer is Jay Weinberg, son of Max Weinberg, who is the drummer of Springsteen’s E Street Band. What a small world! Barf. Neumos, 8 pm, $15.
Someday, humanity will uncover that Ozzy Osbourne died back in 1993 and all this time his shows were being performed by his roboticized corpse as controlled by James Hetfield. Now insert Master of Puppets joke here. Tacoma Dome, 7:30 pm, $29.50–$79.50.
