Have a friend that’s visiting Seattle this week? Why not share this podcast with them and give them ideas of something to do? 

This week we got a scary circus show, an oyster and beer event and a Green gardening workshop.

How about a documentary about a role playing game that mixes fantasy and reality? The Northwest Film Forum on Capitol Hill features the film The Institute on Friday, October 18, through Thursday, October 24.

Want to hear all about the latest developments in landscape sustainability? Head on over to the 2013 Green Gardening Workshop at South Seattle Community College tonight, Tuesday, October 22. Then start planting.

Some people get nervous around the word budget. No more. Tonight, Tuesday, October 22, attend Build Your Best Budget: Arts Program + Project Planning at Bedlam Coffee in Belltown and workshop your arts project or program budget. This one is BYOB— bring your own budget.

Into the Sounders? You won’t want to miss Sounders FC: Authentic Masterpiece Book Launch Party at the Market Arms Pub in Ballard tonight, Tuesday, October 22. The party will be emceed by the voice of the Sounders and Sounders VIPs are expected to attend.

You like beer. You like oysters. Why not make an appearance at the Beer & Oyster Pairing at Ballard Annex Oyster House on Thursday, October 24? That’s four local brews and four different oyster dishes. Yum on that.

Thursday, October 24, through Saturday, October 26, it’s time for Carnevolar IV: The Haunting at the Aerialdrome at Emerald City Trapeze Arts. That would be a scary circus journey into the underworld. Just in time for Halloween.

Face it. Movies are better in 35mm. So on Friday, October 25, and Saturday, October 26, head on over to Grand Illusion Cinema in the U District for Hellraiser. It’s a scary movie. But you can handle it.

So… if oysters, budget planning and scary movies don’t float your boat, perhaps you’d like to hear about some of our top music picks coming around this week…

Tonight, Tuesday, October 22, at Egan’s Jam House in Ballard check out Nick Hempton Band. This amazing saxophonist and his crew will heat up the night with new tunes from their brand new CD, Odd Man Out.

Friday, October 25, it’s time for Nicole Mitchell Ice Crystal Quartet at Cornish’s Kerry Hall on Capitol Hill. She’s been called the most important jazz flutist of her generation by All About Jazz. Good stuff.

Friday, October 25, is also the night for Misner & Smith at Empty Sea Studios in Greenwood. This group’s songs yearn for connection, ache for understanding, relish in the mystery and rejoice in creation. All at one of Seattle’s most intimate venues.

On Saturday, October 26, check out Faire is the Heaven. The Tudor Choir celebrates the rich musical heritage of the English Church, from the 16th century to the present, with this season-opening concert of favorites by Gibbons, Stanford, Vaughan Williams, and more at the Blessed Sacrament Church in the U District.
