Seattle, WA
The evergreen corner of this country operates in a wonderful kind willful isolation — shrouded by fir trees and thunderclouds, and cut off from the rest of the world by mountains and double digit drives. It’s a wet, weird primordial soup for art that’s as ideologically as it is geographically removed from big city vogue.
On The Boards is Seattle’s premiere spot for the performance fringes, and this weekend is the kick off of their NW New Works festival — their annual showcase of short works and works in progress by performers from across the region. This year’s hodgepodge features debuts from Amy O’Neal, Molly Sides, Linda Austin, David Schmader, Crying — a new project comprised of composer Jherek Bischoff, Parenthetical Girls' Zac Pennington and Ace New York residency alum Steven Reker — plus a dozen more. 
The whole thing goes down over four programs from June 6-15 — collect ‘em all.

After three years on the road, EMP's annual Pop Conference is back where it belongs for another round of the ol’ architectural two-step. This year’s program once again elevates the pop musical discourse with well over a hundred scholarly sojourns into this year’s theme: Go! Music and Mobility. 
Admirable scribes Jessica Hopper, Greil Marcus, Carl Wilson and Amy Rose Spiegel pop up among the daunting list of presenters, with insights and digressions around travel, portability and the movement of music from every available angle. It’s always free, always fun and all starts tomorrow, April 24 — running through April 27.

Claude Zervas will be speaking this Saturday at noon, at the Greg Kucera Gallery. The show features paintings of fantastical quasicrystals he imagines to have harvested from some “sweaty, glittery alien mine.”

Ace Hotel Portland is an optimal HQ for your Pacific Northwest elk watching adventure this autumn. The Jewell Meadows Wildlife Area about an hour away offers a hunt-free zone and supplemental winter grazing grounds to elk herds. Bugling season starts in mid-September. Prime elk viewing season at Jewell starts in November. Or you could catch up with some at Mount St. Helens on the way up the I-5 to Ace Hotel Seattle. There’s plenty of options. While you’re with us, you can pick up a hiking guide or some all-about-elk reading materials like Where Elk Roam: Conservation and Biopolitics of Our National Elk Herd at Powell’s, detour a couple blocks to pay homage to the Thompson Elk, and then plot your itinerary from beneath the Ace Hotel x Pendleton Elk blanket on your bed. Just sayin’.
