The hacktivists of Teh Internet Is Serious Business, opening this weekend.

Concerts

Sept 14–15
Fleet Foxes
It’s a special kind of evening when the Fleet Foxes play their hometown. While the indie folk-rock quintet is no longer part of local label Sub Pop’s roster, the new record, Crack-Up, still beguiles with haunting forest melodies that feel right as rain here in the Pacific Northwest. Paramount Theatre, $37–$40

Sun, Sept 17
Sza
Though 26 years old, and with only one full length record to her name, Sza carries with her the poise and lyrical confidence of a world-wise, spiritually attuned songstress. The haunting, neosoul of this year’s Ctrl holds a sharp edge while hiding in it something timeless and otherworldly. Neptune Theatre, $147–$195

Theater

Sept 13–Oct 15
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

The Myra Platt adaptation of Maya Angelou’s essential work of autobiography returns to Book-It for a new run. The story of Angelou’s fight against the tide of racism in mid-twentieth-century America finds an intimate, and no less relevant, home on the stage—as does its call for personal perseverance. Book-It Repertory Theatre, $25–$40

Sept 15–Oct 2
Teh Internet Is Serious Business
How do you represent the internet, as a physical space, on stage? Well, it’s going to be manic. A big cast, a pixel-inspired set, and a mess of online memes (Grumpy Cat makes an appearance) all converge to tell the story of a hacker group that takes down the Church of Scientology. 12th Avenue Arts, $25

Visual Art

Thru Nov 4
Zaria Forman: Antartica
After four weeks aboard an Antarctic expedition on the National Geographic Explorer, Zaria Forman had ice on the brain. She imbues her large photorealistic drawings of the massive and incongruous frozen architecture with a profound sense of scale—but also impermanence. Forman observes a landscape under widespread threat at the hands of climate change, recasting these ancient stalwarts born from a largely inhospitable environment into something more precious, vital, and endangered. Winston Wächter, Free

Dance

Sept 15–17
Fall Kick-Off
Velocity's fall slate of programming kicks off—featuring at least some very impressive kicks—during three days of dance presenting Velocity’s Made in Seattle artists and other local talent. The festivities open up with a danceathon, yes a dance marathon, intermixed with popup performances and DJ sets. Velocity Dance Center, $25

Classical & More

Sat, Sept 16
Seattle Symphony Opening Night Concert

Björk. Plus, the music is just a prelude to the real party: dinner, drinks, and dancing at nearby Sheraton. Benaroya Hall, Various Prices
