Lil Woody's Burger Month
Past Event List The popular local burger joint chain Li'l Woody's has revealed the lineup for its annual Burger Month series, which features burgers dreamed up by local chefs.

(Li'l Woody's, Capitol Hill)


Jonathan Richman
Past Event List When I first saw a clip of Jonathan Richman performing “The Girl Stands Up to Me Now” on an old Conan O’Brien show, something inside me clicked. Every single dude I grew up with who started their own quirky band with their own weird, faux-earnest personality was really just doing bad Jonathan Richman drag. Except Richman is truly earnest, truly strange, and truly funny. He’s a fucking legend. From his music with the Modern Lovers to his solo stuff, Richman’s career spans several decades, influencing punk and everything that came after it. He’ll be joined onstage by drummer Tommy Larkins. STRANGER STAFF WRITER JAS KEIMIG

Show Me The Body Past Event List
Stranger writer Jas Keimig wrote: "New York band Show Me the Body’s aggressive sound doesn’t alienate you, it welcomes you. Their music combines elements of NY hardcore, hip-hop, and noise rock into a giant stew of punk that’s oddly refreshing. In 2017, the band released a collaborative broad-ranging mixtape project called Corpus I that featured guests like Dreamcrusher, Mal Devisa, and Princess Nokia. Their 2019 album Dog Whistle feels a lot more focused, both sonically and conceptually; go listen to standout tracks 'Madonna Rocket' and 'Arcanum.'" They will return to Seattle to support their latest effort, Trouble the Water, after opening sets from Jesus Piece, Scowl, Zulu, and Trippjones.
(Neumos, Capitol Hill)

Cocaine Bear Past Event List
Lots of cocaine!!! One bear!!!!!! A movie about a bear who consumed a buttload of cocaine. It's based, if you do not know, on a real bear. But cocaine, which fell from the sky, killed the real bear—a black bear who is spending eternity in a Kentucky mall. The movie bear does not die from an overdose but becomes larger than life and death. He goes on a rampage. He destroys this and that. Humans scream and die. And this is a comedy!

If you follow any writers on Twitter, you've overheard the buzz about the 2023 AWP Conference & Bookfair for months.

Ikat: A World of Compelling Cloth Past Event List
The ikat resist dye process is no easy feat—it's an intensive ritual of pattern calculation and thread-tying that takes time, patience, and dedication. Yet the resulting cloth pattern can be delightfully off-kilter and inexact; Wikipedia calls ikat “blurry." This impressive exhibition features over 100 ikat textiles from Africa, Asia, Indonesia, and elsewhere, and offers visitors the opportunity to "walk into an ikat" devised by indigo dye experts Rowland and Chinami Ricketts.
(Seattle Art Museum, Downtown, Thursday-Sunday; opening)
