Tomorrow, January 13 | Le Frenchword Presents “Fancy Mud” – After a series of successful workshop runs, absurdist trio Le Frenchword debuts the full length version of “Fancy Mud”; a collection of abstract comedy vignettes bolstered by a pastiche of movement, music and a deep and meaningful exploration of all things dumb. The story takes us from The Last Lame Three-Legged Dying Cow Of All Creation to the origins of the universe. With the help of cell phones, black holes, and the California Cute Cult, Le Frenchword delivers a pastel rainbow of laughter. Beware the flying bunny punch. Beware!

Decadence marks the completion of Li’s residency at Pottery Northwest.  In this exhibition, she asks: “How would we feel if our intimate moments were made public? Would we change our behavior? Sanitize our lives? In one breath the beautiful is transformed to repulsive. Whether divine or amoral, excessive or tasteful, is it not decadent?” [FREE!]

Saturday, January 14 Pickled Okra CD Release Party – Husband and wife-led bluegrass band ‘Pickled Okra’ looks forward to sharing their stories of love and murder in a way that only an ol’ married couple can.
