That's the trailer for today's suggested event. Jobriath A.D., showing at the Grand Illusion tonight at 7 and 9 pm, is a documentary about a would-be glam-rock God that sort of collapsed under the weight of his own hype.

Other recommended things happening around town include a reading from Jeff VanderMeer at Elliott Bay Books this evening at 7 pm and blue-eyed soul artist Mayer Hawthorne (hear his cover of "Royals" on the other side of this link) at Neumos at 8 pm.

If you haven't visited our visual arts listings in a while, check them out. A cold clear day like today may be the perfect time to duck into a gallery for some quiet contemplation.
