7. G.S. Sultan, Norm Chambers, LIMITS, RM Francis
Clear some brain space for another highbrow electronic-music bonanza. The headiest of Seattle’s avant-garde aural explorers—Norm Chambers, LIMITS (Corrie Befort and Jason E. Anderson), and RM Francis—bring their scrupulously chiseled synth and laptop emissions to support the great G.S. Sultan. The New York–based composer purveys a mercurial, microbial sound that keeps your neurons dancing the jitterbug. On 2014’s ag_greatesthit, Sultan uses customized software through Max/MSP to manipulate vocal samples into a funhouse-mirrored hyper(sur)reality that recalls Carl Stone’s vertiginous sonic illusions. Prepare yourself for delirium. (By the way, Chambers—under his Jürgen Müller alias—has a phenomenal new split LP with Jonas Reinhardt, The Encyclopedia of Civilizations vol. 1: Egypt.) DAVE SEGAL

(University District, free)

19. Kate Moore with Anne McTiernan: The Radium Girls
You can't just pick up Marie Curie's papers from the 1890s. They must be handled carefully, by people wearing protective clothing, and they're stored in lead-lined boxes because of their radioactivity. But in the early 1900s, people didn't realize how dangerous radium is, and workers in the radium-dial factories would cover their hair and faces in luminous, radioactive paint just for fun. This is the story of the "Radium Girls," factory workers who were known at first for their glamorous (and relatively high-paying) jobs, and later for the terrible infections and ailments that they suffered. Kate Moore (the director of the play These Shining Lives) is the author of a book about their lives, titled The Radium Girls: They Paid with Their Lives. Their Final Fight Was for Justice. She will discuss this new work with UW epidemiology research professor Anne McTiernan.
(First Hill, $5)

FRIDAY-SUNDAY

ART

24. Amie Siegel: Interiors
Working in film and other media, New York artist Amie Siegel creates meticulous, self-aware studies of objects and architectural spaces that investigate the mechanisms behind the accumulation of social and aesthetic value. Her recent work Fetish (2016), filmed at the Freud Museum in London, depicts the annual cleaning of Freud's collection of archaeological artifacts, offering parallels with the process of the excavation of the psyche through analysis. Fetishization is a recurring theme in Siegel's work, from the subject matter to the treatment and presentation of her chosen media, often using physical formats like film to add layers of meaning. EMILY POTHAST
There will be an opening reception on Friday evening and a curatorial conversation on Saturday afternoon.
(First Hill, free)

COMMUNITY & CIVICS

25. Red May
Philip Wohlstetter, a local intellectual who has been a part of the Seattle art scene since the early 1980s, when he helped produce one of the first crowd-sourced anythings by means of a computer (a novel called Invisible City), has organized a world-class radical-left festival that will run in the month of May. This thing is big, ambitious, and timely—though Wohlstetter began putting it together long before anyone could believe that Trump would be our next president. The event is called Red May, it will include a bunch of brilliant and noted radical thinkers and artists (Michael Hardt, China Miéville, Joshua Clover, Nisi Shawl, Steven Shaviro, Kathi Weeks, Geoff Mann—to name a few). This weekend's schedule includes (Re)Production Struggles in the Age of Trump on Friday, Neoliberalism: Vampire or Zombie?, Michael Hardt: Cooperation, Kathi Weeks: The Working Day, Jason Read: Primitive Accumulation, and Asad Haider: Introduction to the Grundrisse on Saturday, and Socialism and Feminism In (and Out of) the Workplace, Philanthropy Against Teachers, and Red Planets: The Left Turn in Science Fiction on Sunday.

SATURDAY

ART

27. Ayana V. Jackson: Dear Sara Closing Day
Ayana V. Jackson's career has been focused on creating portraits from the African diaspora, from hip-hop artists in Ghana to African descendants throughout the Americas. This latest project focuses on the story of a real person, Sara Forbes Bonetta, born as Aina in 1843 in an Egbado village (in what is now called Nigeria). She was an omoba (essentially: a princess) who became a slave after she was captured in a "slave hunt" in which her parents were killed. After that, the narrative goes, she became a gift to be sold or given, and later, after a fortuitous turn of events, she became a goddaughter of Queen Victoria. Like in Jackson's series including Poverty Pornography and Archival Impulse, the artist plays the role(s) herself, transforming her own appearance to match the exhibit's story and aesthetic. The portraits are stunningly dramatic, "throwing off the trope of Bonetta as property of monarchs," and depicting her instead as unassailable royalty basking in her own glow and influence.

Headliners and Portland faves P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. make high-energy, kick-out-the-jams rock via dreams of early-1980s hardcore.

QUEER

88. Match Game: Cher Wars
The magic of Match Game, you see, is the appalling inebriation of the participants and the gaudy drenching of 1970s nostalgia. And so it is entirely appropriate that this annual Match Game party is being held in the boozy environs of a bar and features drag-queen tributes to Cher and Star Wars. Come see local faves Honey Bucket, Mona Real, and Gams Galore jostling to portray their best Cher, and Jake Stratton, Miss Elaine-Yes, and Jamie Von Stratton evoking Star Wars-ian ephemera as they all scramble to answer trivia questions in a boozy fog. Yes, there is a door prize for the audience member in the best Cher/Star Wars costume. And yes, your attendance at the event means that you'll be missing Cher performing at the Billboard Music Awards. Totally worth it. MATT BAUME

READINGS & TALKS

89. Jeffrey Kluger
Journalist and author Jeffrey Kluger (Time magazine, The Sibling Effect) will read from the topical Apollo 8: The Thrilling Story of the First Mission to the Moon, which concerns both the space mission and the turmoil of its international context—the Vietnam War, assassinations, and a bitter election at home.

90. Scott Hartley: The Fuzzy-Techie Collaboration
Did you major in the humanities or anything other than computer science and STEM fields? Congratulations, you're a "fuzzy." According to Scott Hartley, venture capitalist and startup adviser, fuzzies play an undersung role in innovation while techies get all the credit. He'll present his new book The Fuzzy and the Techie, an appreciation of the "soft skills" fuzzies possess, like identifying problems to be solved and managing ethics. Come, non-techies, for a gratifying talk in this increasingly brogrammer-dominated city.
