🎟️ Top Picks This Week:

Sept 19 - 25

Let’s get lit 💡

We’re noticing a theme this week: bright lights and colorful parties.

Fall officially begins on Thursday, and you can kiss warm summer evenings goodbye at the closing Habitat party on Monkey Loft’s rooftop. Then head underground for the annual Kremfest, a four-day subterranean electronic music fest at the Kremwerk Complex. There’s also a light festival and nighttime ball to round out the week 🪩

🎹 Monday

Most people stay in on Mondays, but if you’re looking to get loud: Mo’Jam Mondays brings a community of musicians together over in Fremont. 

🔴 Tuesday

TikTok sensation Girl in Red is landing in Seattle during her US tour. The queer musician became so popular that the phrase “Do you listen to Girl in Red?” has become a way of asking if someone is a lesbian. 

🌇 Wednesday

We’re sad to report that summer is over, and we know this because Monkey Loft’s bumping Habitat dance night is closing for the season. Head on up for one final sunset dance party. Also today: Book-It Repertory Theatre’s In the Time of Butterflies opens. Based on the novel by Julia Alvarez, the play runs through mid-October. 

🪩 Thursday

If you look up while walking around the Denny Triangle neighborhood, you’ll see a lot of newness, with skyscrapers popping up on nearly every block. But if you look down, you’ll find something familiar: The subterranean Kremwerk is throwing its annual Kremfest, an electronic music fest made for local techno heads. 

📚 Friday

Seattle Public Library throws a big queer ball every year, right in the face of homophobes who’d prefer it if queens never opened another book again. Legendary Children is back, this year at the Olympic Sculpture Park. Plus: The successful Down the Rabbit Hole cabaret returns to Cafe Nordo’s Knife Room for another round of shows. 

🏮 Saturday

Celebrate the beginning of fall with a big Green Lake light show. The annual Luminata happens this Saturday. Bring Your Own Lantern, or pick one up before the fest at the fest’s Lantern Shoppe. Also starting today is the House of Spirits, a touring immersive Halloween show in Capitol Hill. That’s going on through Halloween. 

🧪 Sunday

Gen Xers rejoice: The bubbly legends Stereolab are making a Seattle stop during their latest tour. Few bands make us feel so effervescent.
