  • KEXP’s series of free concerts at the Mural lawn in Seattle Center start this afternoon with performances from Blitzen Trapper (sounding more mellow and consistently warm than their earlier eclectic junkyard campfire robot days) and Throw Me the Statue (whose delightful new album, Creaturesque, hums and buzzes with life, feels less hermetic and drum-machine-dependent than Moonbeams, and is already a fast summer favorite. It arrives in stores next week or in your inbox upon advance purchase [secretly canadian]; stand-out track “Ancestors” [mp3] shows off the album’s catchy hooks, more prominent guitars, and now-expected yet still-exceptional heartsick lyrics.) The beer garden opens at 5 and the show starts at 6. With temperatures setting into reasonable territory well below the three-digit mark, it’s probably the best possible after-work activity available. [kexp]
  • two juxtaposed words that broke my brain: BINGO Karaoke. $10, Greenood Senior Center. [phinneywood]
  • There’s an awesome muppet party on Saturday night, with Animal Drumming and the Saturday Knights, and cheap drinks. $10-15, 9pm, Saturday. [mb/bpt]
  • It’s a battle-of-the bands at the downtown Top Pot doughnuts as local label stars vie to eat the most fried deliciousness for pride and charity. [
  • Urban Craft Uprising arrives in Seattle Center this weekend. It’s free, but you’ll need to arrive early to get in before everyone else grabs up the quirky, weird, adorable, handmade goods that will garner months of compliments and enjoyment for themselves.
