If you haven't heard, the Washington State Democratic Caucuses are this Saturday, March 26. Here's Sean Nelson on why you should go: "This year's caucuses afford Washington voters a chance to demand answers of one another, and more importantly, to listen to them. Most of all, though, it provides a crystal clear dividing line: If you don’t go, you are hereby forbidden to post another goddamn word about Hillary or Bernie on Facebook."
But the official caucuses on Saturday aren't the only ways to engage in your civic duty this week—there are also pre-caucus informational sessions, concerts, and post-caucus drinking parties. Here's a round-up of all of the caucus-related events that have been announced so far.
A Raucous Ruckus Before the Caucus
Gear up for "adulting at its finest" with live music from Seattle rock band Merchant Mariner, Yakima blues/soul band Shoot Jake, and West Seattle Americana band Mandolin Hooper & the Texas Rats at Lo-Fi. (Tuesday)
Seattle Get Out the Caucus Event with Hillary
Hillary Clinton will make a public appearance at Rainier Beach High School tonight as she gears up for Washington's democratic caucuses on Saturday. Doors open at 6:15 pm—plan to get there early. (Tuesday)
A Radical Talk on The Democratic Caucus
Seattle activist Josh Farris will give a "radical analysis" of the Washington State Democratic Caucus process, after which he'll leave to protest Hillary Clinton. (Tuesday)
America Together: An Evening of Spoken Word, Music & Action

After-Caucus Drinking Event
Spend your Saturday morning at one of Washington State's democratic caucuses, then enjoy a (well-deserved) stiff drink or four at Linda's. (Saturday)
Come celebrate fulfilling your civic duty at the Post-Caucus Rawkus, presented by The Bern Ward, a pro-Bernie Sanders organization. This event is free for anyone who participated in the caucus (whether or not you voted for Bernie), but a $5 donation will be requested from those who did not participate, all proceeds of which will be donated to the Sanders presidential campaign. Party music will be provided by stand-out local DJs and electronic artists WD4D, Ad-lib, Amanita, and Manos. (Saturday)
