The 46th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade, Georgetown Art Attack, A Guilty Pleasures Dance Party, And More Events That Won't Cost More Than $10

by Stranger Things To Do Staff

Just because you haven't planned your weekend far in advance doesn't mean you can't still go out and have a good time. Below, find all of your options for last-minute events that won't cost you more than $10, ranging from themed dance parties (guilty pleasure music, dead hipsters, and Bollywood and glowsticks) to artsy events (including Georgetown Art Attack, a pop-up light installation in Seattle Center, and the Seattle Web Fest), and from a broadcast of the Seattle Kennel Club Dog Show at Bill's to a Sticker Swap at Push/Pull.

8. Scandinavian Folkdance

It's Saint Urho's Day!

(Queen Anne, $8/$10)

There will be a ceremonial tapping of the beer and a toast from Capitol Hill Lead Brewer Hiawatha Rhyans, plus a performance from Boyfriends, about whom Robin Edwards once wrote, "Ripped straight from the pages of Tiger Beat, Seattle's dreamiest all-boy band Boyfriends sing bop-along pop songs that will make you swoon with their groovy bass lines, feminist subject matter ("Future Is Female" is a total hit), and on-point fashion choices." All proceeds from Said in Zest sales will go to nonprofit thrift store Out of the Closet.

(Capitol Hill, free)

31. David Bosworth

David Bosworth, former director of the University of Washington creative writing program and author of several books of cultural criticism, is old enough to remember Fukuyama declaring modern history over, effective 1989. All the major intercontinental wars were won or otherwise settled, democracy won, capitalism won, everything was going to be great forever, amen. Then 2001 happened. Then came the War on Terror, the Great Recession, and the ascension of a bankrupt-real-estate-magnate-turned-reality-television-star to the Oval Office. In his latest book, Conscientious Thinking: Making Sense in an Age of Idiot Savants, Bosworth argues our 20th-century solutions aren't working and that we need to adopt postmodern solutions to solve our postmodern problems. I went to graduate school at UW and physically saw Bosworth only one time. If he's coming out of his writing den to give us some answers, they're worth paying attention to. RICH SMITH

53. Ancient Warlocks, Cody Foster Army, The Valley, Powerhitter

As long as there are stoners (they don’t seem to be diminishing in number much around here), there’ll be a need for stoner rock. When it’s done well, stoner rock is very satisfying, like being swaddled in blankets made out of woolly mammoth pelts while the earth rumbles moderately in the distance. It’s down-tuned ecstasy in (almost) slow motion. Seattle’s Ancient Warlocks do this low-slung, methodical grind with requisite swagger, and vocalist Aaron Krause’s ravenous yowl makes him a dead ringer for Monster Magnet’s Dave Wyndorf—a great thing in any sensible person’s book. DAVE SEGAL
(Ballard, $10)

59. Gibraltar, Head Like A Kite, Wiscon

A tumultuous rock group with a knack for surging dynamics and rousing buildups, Gibraltar sound like a passionate convergence of Interpol and Built to Spill. Tonight they’re celebrating the release of their latest album, Let’s Get Beautiful. Leader Aaron Starkey cites Lou Reed’s Transformer as an inspiration, but Beautiful has a heart-on-sleeve brashness that reveals a more blustery take on glam-informed rock—plus, Starkey has way more range than Reed. If anything, Beautiful leans more toward New York Dolls’ flamboyant dynamics and emotional fireworks. Seattle’s Head Like a Kite began life as a fun-loving dance-rock band—with sporadic forays into motorik krautrock—headed by ex-Sushirobo guitarist/vocalist Dave Einmo. But recent HLAK releases skew darker and more introverted, as exemplified by 2016’s No Two Walk Together EP. Forgoing vocals, Einmo explores a deep vein of post-rock intrigue and orchestral somberness à la Tortoise and Rachel’s. “Return to Order” is the jam. DAVE SEGAL
