29. Kerry Tribe: Standardized Patient
My introduction to the weird world of medical gigs was as a participant in the National Health Interview Survey when I was 18 years old. Fascinated by playing a small role in medical research, I’ve participated in several other research studies since. Video and installation artist Kerry Tribe found her way to the standardized patient—an actor who acts out symptoms for trainee doctors—via a similarly circuitous path. “One project about a famous amnesiac patient and another about people with aphasia led me to think about some big questions around the way subjectivity is embodied and communicated,” Tribe told me. In this exhibition originally commissioned by SF MoMA, videos and scripts show the interaction that—while clinical—demonstrates the humanity necessary in doctor/patient interactions. KATIE KURTZ

40. Jim Woodring Presents 'Poochytown'
Follow naive bipedal rodent (?) Frank to the very end of the Unifactor as Pupshaw and Pushpaw savor the hedonistic delights of Poochytown. If that sentence holds no meaning for you, congratulations: You are experiencing the delirium of a Jim Woodring graphic novel for the first time. Woodring is a local genius who inks morphing cartoon dreamscapes and characters in stories unconstrained by words or traditional story lines. Poochytown is the latest installment in the adventures of Frank, whom Woodring introduced back in the 1990s in an eponymous Fantagraphics-issued series. If you saw his exhibition The Pig Went Down to the Harbor at Sunset and Wept at the Frye last year, you know how the Boschian bloom of his ink manifolds can lead your senses into a tripped-out daze. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Woodring discuss his latest tome with cartoonist Simon Hanselmann. JOULE ZELMAN

Alongside these locals is the work of Charlie Crowell, a Brooklyn artist whose multimedia works skirt the edges of ephemerality, vulnerability, and connection. EMILY POTHAST

63. 9th Annual Linda's Fest
Capitol Hill brunch-and-brews institution Linda’s Tavern continues to give back to the community with a yearly sample of free local music. And while the average income of the restaurant’s neighbors continues to change, the sonic fare of Linda’s Fest does not—heavy, rhythmic, and loud continue to be adjectives of consequence. Because, really, what is the sound of brunch? It is the aural equivalent of that which quenches the hangover: grease, carbon, caffeine, and further blood-borne ethanol. This year’s amp-worship seminar features Helms Alee as keynote speaker. Support comes from Sandrider, Wild Powwers, Trash Fire, and Nox Novacula. JOSEPH SCHAFER

Hot on Slow Code’s heels, Seattle’s Medicine Bows are gaining momentum in their headlining and headbanger footsteps. As aggressive ancestors, Voycheck and Bobcat will solidify that it’s going to be hot ’n’ heavy at one of Seattle’s greatest punk dive bars. ZACH FRIMMEL
