The French Project
A self-described "loose affiliation of musicians playing originals and covers of French music," the French Project offers up a pre-Valentine's Day show to make you swoon. Top of the Frenchy heap: Erin Jorgensen
, Seattle's premier punk-rock marimba player
, who'll perform tunes by Johnny Cash, Serge Gainsbourg, the Ramones, and Thin Lizzy, all played on the marimba, all sung in French. Plus, music from actual French folks
