Our suggested event for this evening is the Robert Yoder show at Platform Gallery. It looks dark, and Jen also used the word "throbby" to describe it, so if that all sounds like too much for you right now and you're looking for alternate recommendations, here are some.

Tonight, at Photographic Center Northwest, Hank Willis Thomas will be speaking in conjunction with the Question Bridge and Seen exhibitions currently on display there. Jen’s piece explains all of what’s going on over at PCNW.

If you’re looking for film, we recommend heading over to SIFF Cinema Uptown, for the first day of the five-day Women in Cinema film series.

In the world of recommended readings, we have Kurt Timmermeister talking farming over at the University Bookstore at 7 pm and Okey Ndibe giving a reading from his new novel at Seattle U. at 5 pm.

And here’s some recommended music that’s happening tonight: Darkside at Neumos, Disappears and Dreamsalon at Chop Suey, and cozy, twinkly NPR-ready folk from Mutual Benefit at Barboza.
