9. Lavender Country, Wildcat Rose, Jenny Don’t & the Spurs
The world wasn’t ready for Lavender Country back in 1973 when their very queer country album first came out. At the time, musician Patrick Haggerty played some gigs up and down the coast, sold 1,000 copies of the album, and then went about his life. But in 2014, his groundbreaking music was rediscovered and rereleased, and now you can hear songs like “Cryin’ These Cocksucking Tears” live and in person. Haggerty is a phenomenal entertainer and storyteller, and his decades of adventures as an activist have further enriched his performances with meaning. MATT BAUME
(Ballard, $10)

10. Natalie Wouldn't, The Big News, Mister Blank, The Replicators
Ska’s not dead; it’s just a lot easier to ignore than it was in its ’90s heyday of bands like Reel Big Fish and Less Than Jake. There are a handful of bands in the Northwest scene courageous enough to carry on with the horns amid a landscape of people likely to consider their ska fandom just a deep dark secret—one of which is Natalie Wouldn’t. Formed from the ashes of Moon Ska Records artist Easy Big Fella, Natalie Wouldn’t lean toward a more soulful, rocksteady sound. Give them a listen and there’s a chance you might not cringe (as much) the next time anyone utters the word “ska.” KEVIN DIERS

(West Seattle, $8)

15. Three Fingers, Amsterdam, Sunset Flip

17. Vibragun, Ealdor Bealu, Stubborn Son
If you like Swervedriver’s Raise and Mezcal Head, you should dig Vibragun’s torqued, beautifully contoured, high-flying rock. This is some dynamic, majestic songcraft, and in the Jesus and Mary Chain-esque “Dirty Thing,” Vibragun have a potential hit. Just don’t let guitarist/frontman Joel Bergstrom hear you call it “shoegaze.” DAVE SEGAL

FRIDAY-SATURDAY

ART

21. Anthony White: Tier 2: Sold Out
If you haven't come across work by (or curated by) Anthony White at one of the city's art walks in the past year, you have been missing out on a very talented up-and-comer. The curator behind the local exhibition series While Supplies Last, White has also shown his own fused PLA (polylactic acid) portraits, which resemble plastic tapestries. His subjects are frequently selfie-taking youths framed by opulent mirrors or cast against intricate, space-flattening wallpaper patterns. This time, he’ll “investigate the intimate interiors of people’s private spaces all captured and catalogued with a digital device” through the juxtaposition of the everyday with the ornate and fantastical. Expect something soulful, sexy, impressive, and slightly (but unabashedly) kitsch. JOULE ZELMAN

Part film noir, part perverse fairy tale, Bunny Lake is Missing hardly passed the US production code standards of the time - which could be why the film was more beloved by British audiences."
