Four things to do this week
Summer's just about here. Looking for something fun to do with the balmy weekday nights? Here are a few suggestions. As always, if you know of an event that's a best bet, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Monday entertainment: Costume karaoke at Jazzhaus
If you're looking for an unusual outlet for your inner singer, this Monday's campy special at the Jazzhaus is a singalong party with the theme of "cross-dressing." It starts at 8 p.m.
Monday local music: The Percolator's "pass the hat" series
The Percolator is again hosting a community potluck with show at its space near 913 R.I. Dinner's at 5 p.m. with music at 7 p.m. Performing this week are Tampa's No Milk and locals Robocopter and Agent X-12.
Tuesday experimental music: Xiu Xiu at the Jackpot
Avant-garde electronic rockers Xiu Xiu will play with Dirty Beaches at 10 p.m. Tickets are $10 for 21 and over, $12 for 18 to 21. Read more about Xiu Xiu in my interview with frontman Jamie Stewart.
Wednesday games: Heavy metal bingo at Bottleneck
Another offbeat pick, free games start at 8 p.m. and are fairly self-explanatory: bingo + metal music.
