FRIDAY

ART

1. A Cosmic Perspective: Cultural Work by Joe Wilkinson
Flux, movement, chaos, and disrupted patterns are paradoxically evoked by these ceramic sculptures.
(Seattle Center, free)
Opening Friday

2. No Closets!
LGBTQ artists who refuse to remain in the closet will exhibit work. They include Flynn Bickley, Rich Fought, Ann S Koi, Danny Mansmith, Darius Morrison, Alexis Ortiz, Claire Parfitt, and Susanne Spratt.
(Burien, free)

FILM

3. Cascade Playground Outdoor Movies
Bring something to sit on and enjoy popcorn and snow cones as you watch Wonder Woman outside. Show up a little early for pre-show entertainment.
(South Lake Union, free)

4. Leave It To Beavers
Discover the hidden potential of beavers to heal aquatic environments in North America at this Meaningful Movies screening.
(University District, free)

5. Midnight Movie Madness
Have a blast watching public domain horror films, boozing it up at the pay-what-you-want bar, or playing board or video games with the horror sketch troupe Drop the Root Beer and Run. A must for fans of comedy, low-fi horror, and cheesiness.
(Greenwood, free)

6. Rooftop Movies After Hours
Unwind at the end of the week with a free screening of Princess Bride and maybe a movie-inspired cocktail, like the "Inconceivable."
(Downtown, free)

MUSIC

7. Alex Britton Band
Hear "all genres" of acoustic music from Seattle's Alex Britton.
(Kirkland, free)

8. Baywitch, Nadu, Porn Bloopers, FLRT
Baywitch’s winning combo of spunky strums and ethereal vocals is a must-have for the spookiest—and most colorful—beach parties this summer. However, don’t get too comfortable in this haunt, because Nadu’s punk-as-hell take on surf-rock hits hard like a rogue wave, but you’ll quickly be getting up for more. For even more fun, Porn Bloopers are here to smash in all of the band’s delightfully messy, party-punk glory (check out their 4 Track Demos 2018 on Bandcamp—bloopers are included, but no porn, unless you count an eargasm). With a lineup like this, it’s irresistible to rock the boat, and FLRT oblige with rhythm-forward fuzzy garage-rock that has a life of its own. SOPHIA STEPHENS
(Eastlake, $8)

9. Deep Creep, Autogramm, Dyed
Deep Creep includes members of Seattle legends Murder City Devils (Derek Fudesco, bass) and Pretty Girls Make Graves (Andrea Zollo, vocals), plus contemporary rippers from Spesh (Brian Yeager, guitar) and Medicine Bows (Jeff Alvarez, drums). The lick-driven foursome don’t play out often enough, so when they do, their chiller rock ’n’ roll and raconteur vibes aren’t ones you want to miss on a Friday night. Local eccentrics Dyed have quickly established a name for themselves and will deliver on well-fashioned, new-wave, synth-and-bass grooves, while Vancouver’s Autogramm will act as the 1980s rock-pop filling for this night of raucousness. ZACH FRIMMEL

(Pioneer Square, $8/$10)

15. Music Under the Stars 2018
The concept of Music Under the Stars is simple but compelling: A student ensemble sets up in a park and plays to whoever shows up, often folks with picnic blankets in tow and maybe a surreptitious bottle of wine or two. Then, Benaroya Hall pipes in whatever performance is happening that night (aligned with selections from this year's Seattle Chamber Music Society Summer Festival, of course) to the assembled throng—it's basically two shows for the price of none!
(Various locations, free)

(Ballard, pay what you can)

53. The Cripples, Cape Fury, Date Night with Brian
I’m so stoked on this reunion show! For serious, I remember back in the olden days when the Cripples broke through the stranglehold Estrus bands and Sub Pop’s “Halifax Experiment” had on the scene. Their synth-stabby, DIY-confrontational, weird-ass noise rock was the first toe into the now stock angular “thing” of the ’00s, and those things they were doing then have since been revised into what the kids call "post punk." Y’all, the Cripples are kind of a big deal. Oh, we’ll also be getting some punk from SF’s Cape Fury and pop punk from locals Date Night with Brian. MIKE NIPPER

62. Kilcid Band, Eldren, the Hoot Hoots
It's exceedingly hard in 2018 to hit the indie-rock sweet spot, in which bands avoid excessive cuteness and rhythmic feebleness and create memorable melodies that don't cloy. Thankfully, Seattle-via-Port-Townsend quintet Kilcid Band brilliantly thread that needle, as their new EP, The Good Get Gone, proves. Its three songs display seductive dynamics, elegant hooks, and tantalizing guitar, bass, and keyboard tones. Add some luscious, layered vocal harmonies that show deep immersion in the Queen catalog and you have a radio-friendly unit to whom you can listen while still respecting yourself the next morning. Mark my words: Kilcid Band are going to be big—or at least slightly more popular than medium-sized. DAVE SEGAL
