Cyndi Lauper's big gay music fest lands in Seattle with a lineup so great, it quashes all reservations. Topping tonight's bill: queers-for-life the B-52s (whose new album is 50 times better than it has a right to be) and, be still my heart, the West Indies–born/United Kingdom–bred legend Joan Armatrading, whose lavish love songs have inspired more lesbian sex than booze and The L Word combined. (And don't underestimate Cyndi Lauper; she always delivers.) (WaMu Theater, 1000 Occidental Ave S, www.ticketmaster .com. 6:30 pm, $56–$126, all ages.)

Day In • Day Out returns this summer, August 12th thru 14th!
