(Capitol Hill, free)

MUSIC

6. Diminished Men, the Sheen, Idol Ko Si
The combined cumulative accomplishments of Idol Ko Si's three members could constitute a fairly exhaustive history of Seattle's underground rock scene over the last 25 years. Bassist Min Yee, guitarist Robert Millis, and drummer Matthew Ford's uncanny instincts for unusual song structures and strange textures culminate in this new supergroup, as evidenced by their self-titled debut album, which you can hear on their Bandcamp page. If Idol Ko Si resembles anything from the trio's vast collective catalog, it might be Factums' Gilding the Lilies: post-punk messthetics alchemized into a murky, intriguing species of alien songcraft that baffles attempts to categorize it. Such subterranean otherness is rare and precious indeed. DAVE SEGAL
(University District, $8)

7. La Fille, The Regrets, Coach Phillips

(Pioneer Square, free)
Closing Saturday

20. Gosha Levochkin: Overworshipped
In this series, Gosha Levochkin features string-cheese-like characters with big boots, tall hats, and wide eyes who find themselves in inexplicable predicaments. New York–based, Moscow-born Levochkin paints them in gouache and watercolor, following the ligne clair (Tintin) tradition with bold colors, even lines, and no hatching. They evoke classic 2-D animation (Levochkin worked in a Korean animation studio for seven years), outsider art, and surrealism. The pictures seem like panels in a never-ending comic book, or stills from a maniacal Nickelodeon cartoon that probably shouldn't be shown to kids. In one, a stringy-person takes a selfie with a noose around its shapeless neck, rump, pertly out-thrust, as a tiny alien rides its back. It sounds like satire, but the effect is even weirder, as if whimsical imaginary friends from childhood had come of age in a hellscape. JOULE ZELMAN

Closing Saturday

21. Graduation Exhibition Reception + Open House: Photomedia
Check out UW's photomedia BFA program and see students' work.

The Scottish/American Yuck 'n Yum zine collective, which stopped publishing its quarterly in 2013, returns to release a Zine Compendium and to spotlight artists "currently navigating this strange new world and trying to make sense" of turmoil across nations. Alongside the release, the magazine—represented by Morgan Cahn, Ben Robinson, and Alex Tobin—has chosen 10 multimedia artists to reflect upon Brexit, Trump, and other upheavals both personal and global. Darren Banks, Greer Pester, O.B. De Alessi, Thomas Moore, Valerie Norris and Lada Wilson, Holger Mohaupt, Janie Nicoll, Kirsty McKeown, and Lizz Brady will offer diverse pieces inspired by robots, linguistics, myths, newspapers, gender roles, and queerdom.

(Pioneer Square, free)
Closing Saturday

(Everett, free)
Closing Saturday

24. Iole Alessandrini: Your Own Halo

26. Joan Kimura: Print Exhibit Linoleum Cuts 1957-2018
See member artist Joan Kimura's linoleum prints.
(Pioneer Square, free)
Closing Saturday

27. Kelly Bjork: Gentle Cravings
Kelly Bjork begins her domestic portraits by going into her friends' homes and photographing them with their everyday surroundings. She then translates these photographs into dense interior worlds of floral patterns, blocks of color, and great leafy shapes. Her figures are simplified into a playful, distinctive style with an illustrator's eye for detail. We see them lounging, hugging, and sometimes even engaged in physical acts of love; the warmth of emotion translating into a vibrant palette of primary colors, cool pastels, and gridded contrasts. Bjork is the cofounder of stationery company Pilgrim Paper, and it's easy to see how her charming images translate into handmade cards and other tokens of affection. EMILY POTHAST
(Pioneer Square, free)
Closing Saturday

28. Khadija Tarver: A circle made by walking
This performance artist encourages viewer interaction with the artwork in a piece about "personal loss and grief." The exhibition is also a "practice space for a future larger performance in the artist's paternal home of Bermuda."

30. Robin Weiss

(Pioneer Square, free)
Closing Saturday

31. Rufino Tamayo: Selected Etchings
Mexican painter and printmaker Rufino del Carmen Arellanes Tamayo, whose work spanned the 20th century, drew on abstract trends, indigenous art, figurative traditions, and European surrealism. His stint as head of the Department of Ethnographic Drawing at the Museo Nacional de Arqueología deepened his interest in pre-Columbian visual traditions. An anti-revolutionary, unlike other Mexican artists of his generation, Tamayo was discouraged both by the disregard of his more political contemporaries and by racist attitudes toward indigenous-descended artists, and as a young man left his home for New York and then Paris. Eventually, though, he won worldwide recognition and acclaim from intellectuals like Octavio Paz, and there is now a contemporary art museum named after him in Mexico City. This is a vital opportunity to discover the work of a major 20th-century artist. JOULE ZELMAN

34. Tony Fitzpatrick: Selected Etchings

His works dispense with perspective and realism in favor of bold graphics in webs of related images. Recommended for lovers of cartoon and comics aesthetics.
(Pioneer Square, free)
Closing Saturday

(Capitol Hill, free)
Closing Sunday

42. Troy Gua: Immaculate Disasters
In 2011, Stranger critic Jen Graves wrote an article on Troy Gua that the artist then incorporated into a pee-themed installation called Pissing Contest. Gua usually plays with slick pop-culture surfaces and symbols as well as found materials, with an eye (and possibly a middle finger) to art history and criticism. For this show, he has drawn on something more peaceful: the vistas of the Northwest filtered through the sensibilities of ukiyo-e, the predominant form of Japanese figurative art from the 17th to 19th centuries. Gua borrows the aesthetic of balanced, simplified landscapes and adds his own glowering colors. By his own account, his aim to depict utopias "took an apocalyptic bend" over the course of the project—he now seems less preoccupied with pop than with the frightening beauty of potential planetary doom.

Opening Friday

FESTIVALS

43. Downstream Music Festival & Art Show
Substation promoter/festival organizer Tim Basaraba created Downstream Music Festival with the intention of supporting local outlier artists without the high ticket costs, big corporate backing, and structure of the Paul Allen–sponsored festival/persistent mold spore Upstream Music Fest. Downstream will host 28 acts and happen concurrently with Upstream, with 100 percent of the door split evenly among its artists. The initial requirement for playing Downstream? An official rejection from Upstream, of course. Downstream’s ads carry the phrase “Paul Allen is afraid of these bands,” and while it’s unlikely the billionaire was directly involved with the Upstream lineup or will hear these bands, this counter-fest was successful in booking weirdo-flag-flying bands like Pukesnake, Visceral Candy, and Hexengeist. Downstream boasts a wide range of genres, opening with metal and foraying into noise, experimental, hiphop, and rock bills. BRITTNIE FULLER
