Some Enchanted Evening
There are several magical things going on this evening in Belltown and Capitol Hill. To get things started, the much-anticipated Cornish BFA show opens from 5 to 9. Joey Veltkamp and Sharon Arnold have this one pretty well covered.
Next door at Fancy, Katherine Hepburn’s Voice will be giving a free concert at 8 p.m. That gives you exactly the right amount of time to grab a bite to eat and whatever else you need to get you through a night of experimental music and enchanted jams from my band Midday Veil at Night 4 of the Seattle Occultural Music Festival, which begins at 10 p.m. at the Rendezvous Jewel Box Theatre. Yes, it’s true what they say: this show WILL swallow you whole. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
There are four more great performances from SOMF through next Friday, May 15, including a set by (a) Story of Rats, the musical project of visual artist Garek Druss, currently in a group show at PUNCH Gallery. Visit the festival website, somf.org, for full lineup details.
