    VISUAL ART

  31. April Surgent: In the Space Separating
    It’s that time of year where the warm sun of summer gives way to the crisp chill of fall—at least in a world before climate change walloped our ideas of what weather is like during each season. But I think the work of glass artist April Surgent is apt for this time of year—misty and contemplative, the engraved glass panels composed of landscapes of the Pacific Northwest’s majestic beauty. Craggy mountain ranges, low skies, the way that fog rolls through the quiet of an evergreen forest. Surgent’s work captures the way I always like to think of this area I call home: eternal, all-knowing, and bigger than I could ever conceive. JASMYNE KEIMIG

    (University District, free)
    Closing Saturday

  35. John Kiley and Dante Marioni: Incalmo
    “Incalmo” is a glassblowing technique wherein two or more pieces of glass are fused together to become one. And in this Traver Gallery show, two of the best glass artists on the scene—John Kiley and Dante Marioni—collaborated on a project that combines Kiley’s eye for color with Marioni’s way with patterns. The 24 sculptures that compose the show are spherical in form, just on the verge of rolling right off the stand. Kiley and Marioni are not only close friends but were also both mentored by Maestro Lino Tagliapietra—and their complex and beautiful work simply must be seen! JASMYNE KEIMIG

    MUSIC

  40. Emerald City Soul Club 14th Annual Rare Soul Weekender
    A residency that’s been active for 14 years is an impressive feat of longevity in a town that can be pretty fickle. So it’s fitting that the anniversary celebration of Emerald City Soul Club—both a monthly event that gets hips shakin’ and asses quakin’, and the DJs who spin those righteously soulful sounds—stretches over several days. The festivities kick off with a meet and greet featuring weekender guest DJs and selectors at the Triple Door. Next, two nights (Friday and Saturday) of main events, Soul Nite #1 and #2, at the usual digs, Lo-Fi; expect rare R&B, soul, Latin, funk, crossover, and modern 45s played by top collectors/DJs from the US and Europe. ECSC DJ and Stranger staffer Mike Nipper gave me a sneak preview of songs that’ll likely be played sometime this weekend: Curtis Lee, “Is She in Your Town”; Joanie Sommers, “Don’t Pity Me”; Bernadette Bascom, “I Don’t Wanna Lose Your Love”; Arnold Blair, “Trying to Get Next to You”; and the Incredibles, "Miss Treatment.” There’s also a Saturday daytime Big Dig Record Swap at Vermillion, and on Sunday, the All-Dayer Soul Survivor Party (actually, 4 p.m. to close) at Screwdriver. In sum, plenty of opportunities to gtf down. LEILANI POLK
