MONDAY

FILM

Cross-Faded Cinema with DJ Nicfit Add to a List
You might've heard the urban legend of a strange synchronicity between The Wizard of Oz and Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon from some cool stoner kid growing up. Inspired by the idea, Cross-Faded Cinema (curated by Seattle's own DJ Nicfit) twists the soundtracks of cult films, giving them a spin that the Seattle International Film Festival describes as "mesmerizing." The film screened for this showing hasn't been announced, but it promises a trippy, ultra-sensory time.

(Joule, Wallingford)

LIVE MUSIC

Broncho Add to a List
It seems like every other band that captures more than its fair share of buzz comes from a big city. This is understandable, but it also means acts like Broncho—a fine pop-rock combo from little ol' Tulsa, Oklahoma—are often left to toil in the shadows. The solution? Record killer albums and tour like crazy so people have no choice but to pay attention. For nearly a decade now, Broncho has been one of America’s great (if underappreciated) purveyors of poppy guitar rock, and their 2018 album Bad Behavior finds them mixing in more beats, more ’80s vibes, more echo, and more danceableness. That’s not a word, but then again, neither is Broncho. BEN SALMON
(The Crocodile, Belltown)

LÉON Add to a List
Treat yourself to an evening of indie-pop with rising Swedish singer-songwriter Lotta Lindgren, known by her stage name LÉON, who started her career fronting a hip-hop/soul outfit before branching out on her own with effortlessly cool retro-tinged pop songs.
