(Shoreline, $10)

12. King Dude, Sandrider, Eye of Nix, Noise-A-Tron
Some may know local singer-songwriter TJ Cowgill best from his stint as the singer in local metal band Book of Black Earth. Others may recognize his name as a driving force behind the creepy-cool clothing label Actual Pain. But Cowgill’s alter ego, King Dude, is a brooding and occult-aligned pop-rock lothario walking the line among Nick Cave, Elvis Presley, and the mad monk Rasputin. JOSEPH SCHAFER
(Capitol Hill, $7/$10)

13. Marina Christopher Trio
Seattle jazz bassist and vocalist Marina Christopher will perform live.
(Downtown, free)

14. Monsterwatch, SSDD, Dead Spells
Seattle trio Monsterwatch have mastered a seething, aggressive brand of rock that dexterously avoids predictability, zagging when you expect them to zig and producing guitar tones that leave a sulfuric sting. Including some finesse in your justifiably angry sound is always a solid move. Dead Spells channel the dark-hearted, descending-chord-laden attack of Siouxsie & the Banshees with a deadpan panache. Singer Natalia Czajkiewicz's voice is as engrossing as her last name is difficult to pronounce. Goth-rock done without corniness, like that of Dead Spells, is a rare treat. DAVE SEGAL
(Beacon Hill, $10)

15. Norman Baker & the Backroads, Sebastian & the Deep Blue, Chris Poage Band

17. RX (Robbie Christmas)
Local singer-songwriter Robbie Christmas will exhibit his artful guitar playing. (Note: His set is unrelated to the Yuletide.)
(Columbia City, $8/$10)

18. Sontag Shogun, Dolphin Midwives, Blessed Blood
Portland harpist/vocalist Dolphin Midwives (aka Sage Fisher) is a first-rate spellcaster whose music balletically straddles the line between drone and art song. She turns an instrument associated with classical and jazz performance into a conduit for gossamer tone poems that enchant and hypnotize with gentle insistence—with help from electronic processing. Dolphin Midwives' new séance-like album, Liminal Garden, refines her compositional adventurousness into a halo of aural incense while it also branches out into more abstract, abrasive territory. Sontag Shogun weave piano, electronics, and hushed vocals into diaphanous tapestries that should appeal to fans of Harold Budd, Nils Frahm, and Benoît Pioulard. The Montreal/NYC trio’s 2019 LP It Billows Up offers two epic, tranquilly disorienting collages that elude easy classification. DAVE SEGAL
(Wallingford, $10 suggested donation)

19. Sundae + Mr. Goessl
Agile-voiced Sundae and swinging guitarist Mr. Goessl make the musical equivalent of shiny-wrapper candy scattered on a coffee table: light, sweet, glittery, and dangerously inviting to sample before dinner.
(Downtown, free)

The two narrative threads come together in an unexpected climax. Lisa Halliday's first novel has garnered wild enthusiasm from many critics; Katy Waldman of the New Yorker called it a "literary phenomenon." Hear her read live.

FRIDAY-SATURDAY

ART

28. Dante Marioni
Marioni's lovely and justly celebrated glass art is often a throwback to the beautiful, symmetrical design of Venetian, Greek, and even Etruscan traditions, though he has also created reticello "gourds" inspired by African basketry. But his forms are anything but monotonous: Many of his vessels would look appropriate in a German expressionist sci-fi film.
(Downtown, free)
Closing Saturday

29. Heike Brachlow
Munich-born Heike Brachlow, now working not far from London, carefully balances her highly varied, colorful, and ingenious glass objects—expect precarious pendulums, columns, tops, and wobbly cylinders.

Closing Saturday

31. Zack Bent: In Memoria
In the summer of 2014, Zack Bent began taking his three sons on regular pilgrimages to a plot of land just south of Cle Elem, Washington. When he began visiting this site, it had just been burned by a forest fire; today, the region is showing signs of regeneration and regrowth. Through a series of photographs of his children interacting with the land over the span of four years—as well as sculptures made from overwintered tarps—Bent has documented not only the transformation of the land, but also the growth of his children into adolescents. It's a way of experiencing the land that many of us aren't accustomed to, in which time is subordinate to space, rather than the other way around. EMILY POTHAST
(Chinatown-International District, free)
Closing Saturday

MUSIC

37. Emerald City Soul Club 13th Annual Rare Soul Weekender
From 1973 to 1981, English youth boogied down to American soul music at a club called the Wigan Casino. Out of this industrial town near Manchester came the northern soul movement—essentially, a fetishizing of all things rare soul, not the Motown hits you might hear on oldies stations. With Capitol Hill and Eastlake as Manchester stand-ins, the obsessive crate diggers behind the Emerald City Soul Club will do their best to re-create the 1970s vibe during their 13th Rare Soul Weekender, when the most passionate soul collectors from across the Pacific Northwest will converge for four days and nights of nothing but soul.

FILM

48. Indigenous Showcase: Tribal Justice
The aspect of Native American culture that is almost never seen on movie screens is its evolution. If the culture is not stuck in the past, then it is almost completely ignored. But there is no culture in the world that is frozen in time. All are very active, very present, and constantly changing. The same is true with the modes and representations of Native American life by Native Americans. The Indigenous Showcase, which is curated by Genius Award winner Tracy Rector, is a program of films that capture a culture that is not moribund, but in fact very much alive. CHARLES MUDEDE

63. Quid Quo, Ex Licks, Dyed
Opening for James Chance and the Contortions last year, Quid Quo acquitted themselves with feral aplomb and won over a packed Lo-Fi crowd.

Quid Quo adhere to the evergreen entertainment dictum “Always leave ’em wanting more,” and when you hear their galvanic debut album, APAINTEDROOMISASMALLROOM, you will be champing at the bit for more of their bruising, rousing music.

The Defenders' "Chant Down Babylon" even became a local hit. The Jamaican expat is still alive and well, performing now with the Boogie Brown Band, which does a competent job of backing this reggae master. CHARLES MUDEDE

76. R. O. Kwon: The Incendiaries
The world of literary fiction seems to be very excited about R.O. Kwon's debut novel, The Incendiaries, which is about a religious young man's quest to find a college woman who disappeared after being drawn into the midst of an extremist religious cult. Writing for the New Yorker, Laura Miller says the book is "the rare depiction of belief that doesn’t kill the thing it aspires to by trying too hard." NPR's Maureen Corrigan calls it an "angsty" novel about "the allure of a belief in God." Seija Rankin at Entertainment Weekly called it "perfectly Instagrammable." Authors Viet Thanh Nguyen and Lauren Groff stan for it. Go measure the hype against the reality at this reading. RICH SMITH

111. Peter Sagal: The Incomplete Book of Running
Peter Sagal may be a star among the NPR set, but when he’s not hosting the public radio quiz show Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!, he’s often found running, a hobby this formerly indoorsy guy didn’t get serious about until he was 40. Since then, Sagal has logged tens of thousands of miles, and in his new book, he reflects on what running has given him, from life-changing experiences like crossing the finish line of the 2014 Boston Marathon just moments before the bombs went off, to your everyday, running-induced diarrhea. At once both witty and wise, The Incomplete Book of Running will appeal to both readers who run and to those of us who prefer to put up our feet, turn on the radio, and listen. KATIE HERZOG
