Hot Tickets: Seattle

Here are this week’s hot tickets in the Seattle area. Check back every Thursday at noon, PST for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

Friday, March 9 | Emerald City – Triggered by a conversation between playwright SP Miskowski and director Meghan Arnette about the changing cultural identity of Seattle, Emerald City is a haunting love note/ break up letter to the city. Miskowski artfully connects the past and the present as she weaves together history and a personal tale of longing, urban identity and change. A writer is forced to return to Seattle, site of her personal and professional ruin, to cover the story of Dorothy Dietrich. Crashing with a college roommate and proprietor of an earnest yet doomed tour business, and surreptitiously followed by a lover whose interest may be swayed by a surprising suitor, her life is once again changed by a trip she didn’t want to take to a city she hoped never to see again.

Saturday, March 10 | Draw Attack! Costume Session with Brew and Live Music – Georgetown Atelier hosts its first monthly costume figure drawing session, featuring live baroque opera by Jordan Corbin of Watershed Opera and delicious brew from Georgetown Brewing Co! Enjoy the ambience of a working classical art school, which offers participants use of easels, work lamps and controlled lighting. The school is an active part of the Georgetown Art Attack art walk, allowing visitors to respectively witness the drawing session in action. Chinese Mortal Warrior P. Pan will be the model of the evening. Pose will be gestures, followed by 20 minute poses and a final 40 minute pose. Read the rest of this entry »

Hot Tickets: San Francisco

Every Tuesday at noon, PST, Brown Paper Tickets will post upcoming events happening in the San Francisco Bay Area. Here are hot tickets for events coming up. Check back for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

Thursday, February 9 | SF IndieFest – Two weeks of “the best in independent, alternative, and subversive cinema from around the globe.” Here’s a rundown of what you can expect from the organizers:

Here’s a brief example of the extreme excellent-ness of this year’s program: we’re showing THE FP, no doubt the best post-apocalyptic dance-fight video game movie you’ve ever seen; CLOWN, the most sick and wrong (and hilarious) Danish buddy film you’ve ever seen; BULLHEAD, Belgium’s Oscar candidate for this year and probably your first introduction to Euro-backwoods crime culture.  We’re showing EXLEY, the latest underground masterpiece by Canuxploitation pioneer Larry Kent. And a sweet local comedy called JUKO”S TIME MACHINE, just in time for Valentines Day.  Though, if you prefer to spend Valentines Day yelling your lungs out to classic anti-love Power Ballads, put LOVE BITES on your calendar.

Great film, fantastic parties and a roller disco? Sign us up!

Friday, February 10 | Black Choreographers Festival: Here & Now – Non-profit Art Organizations AAAPAC and K*Star*Productions have joined forces to present a comprehensive festival celebrating the diverse artistic expression within the context of African and African American dance and culture. The festival strives to offer multi-faceted programming that addresses the needs of artists: networking, mentoring, training, outreach, and the community: affordable/accessible programming, cultural enrichment and arts education.
