- EVERY YEAR AT BURNING BEAST, A DIFFERENT ANIMAL IS BUILT AND BURNT. Past years have seen a goat, a rabbit, a moose, and an elk. Check back on Monday to see what this year’s beast will be.
Brendan Kiley: "I'm going to see the new Wayne Rawley play Attack of the Killer Murder... of Death!, which will be the first show in Theater Schmeater's new Belltown spot. Then I'm headed up to Smoke Farm—along with 600 other people—for the sold-out Burning Beast fundraiser/bacchanalia, where I'll take more pictures like these."
Emily Nokes: "Going to the #Rare Sandlot Dugout Party to see ILLFIGHTYOU tonight, followed by a bug-themed birthday rave. Rave while you can. Tomorrow, Tacocat is playing at Town Hall with Paul Constant and Bryan Lee O'Malley for Verse Chapter Verse! I am so excited. I want to subtly dress like one of O'Malley's comics characters, but also don't want to freak him out…"
Paul Constant: "I'm hosting Verse Chapter Verse with Bryan Lee O'Malley and Tacocat on Saturday night at Town Hall. I can't even make any other weekend plans because I'm so excited about this."
Anna Minard: "It’s practically mandatory to hit up Verse Chapter Verse on Saturday night at Town Hall, where there will be both an intelligent and funny conversation about books and a Tacocat show. Books with pictures + party cat taco music + Paul Constant = a good time. Not missable, party people."
Bethany Jean Clement: "Tonight, I am going to the screening of Chat at Northwest Film Forum—I don’t know much about it, other than that it's 'a dark comedy by Greg Lundgren. Rosalie Edholm plays a webcam chat girl. Featuring Curtis Taylor, Timothy Rysdyke and Doug Nufer.’ Tomorrow, I’m FINALLY going to see Lead Pencil Studio’s by-all-accounts-incredible show transit in half-light at Wing Luke before it ends on Sunday. And on Sunday, there will be meat."
Dave Segal: "The second night of Substrata happens Friday at Chapel Performance Space, and I’ll be there with all the other heads who dig pastoral drones (Koen Holtkamp), meditational guitar (Carl Hultgren), and otherworldly electro folk (Sanso-Xtro). Saturday I’m experiencing the final night of Substrata (Mika Vainio, Evan Caminiti, Mamiffer) and then heading to Chop Suey to watch California psych rocker Morgan Delt melt July 2014 into a sonic summer of love… maaaan."
Charles Mudede: "My weekend will be all about Vermillion Gallery for two very good reasons. One, I'm preparing for a talk I'm giving there this Tuesday on the idea of urban growth without economic/capitalist growth. And two, tomorrow the gallery is holding a free Pad Pushers show that features one of my favorite pad pushers/hiphop producers in the city Wizdumb. Now you know. Bell Biv DeVoe."
