Met Picks: Music

Your best entertainment bets for Nov 5-8

By Laura Dannen November 5, 2009


Seattle Met loves the Tiger Lillies. So much so that we wrote about them here and here – oh, and here! Catch England’s macabre punk trio as they kick off the Seattle International Cabaret Festival at the Moore tomorrow night. (By the way: did you notice we mentioned a cabaret festival? There are can-can men. Just sayin’.)

It’s your last weekend to stop by the Earshot Jazz Festival (closing Nov 8). We’re excited about the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra’s tribute to Ray Charles and Quincy Jones, featuring Dean Bowman lending vocals to the Rep’s treatment of 1961 album Genius + Soul = Jazz. (That Ray Charles was modest, wasn’t he.)

It’s just a man and his piano onstage at Benaroya Hall on Sunday. But not just any man: Rufus Wainwright. And not just any piano…okay, we don’t know what kind of piano, but that’s not going to stop you from going, is it?

Also competing for your attention on Sunday: alt-rock band Dinosaur Jr comes to Showbox at the Market, and Devo whips things up at the Moore.

We’re just getting started. For our weekend Film picks, click here.
