From Remix to Inception at the Mural, it’s a good time to get outside.

SAM Remix returns to Olympic Sculpture Park on Aug 12.

From the Seattle Summer Events Guide:

While you’re on the Blitz Capitol Hill Arts Walk, keep an eye out for the ongoing street art project at the site of Capitol Hill’s new Sound Transit station. It’s the aptly named Capitol Hill Wall Project.

Hazy pop band Seapony joins Gold Leaves and Math and Physics Club for another (free!) Concert at the Mural, starting at 6 at Seattle Center’s Mural Amphitheatre.

More free fun: Start early at SLUBP (our fun new acronym for the South Lake Union Block Party). The neighborhood bash runs from noon till 11pm and features wine tastings, a beer garden, and noshes from local eateries (fingers crossed that includes pretzels from Brave Horse Tavern). Michael Cera flick Scott Pilgrim vs. the World screens at dusk.

Just down the street at Olympic Sculpture Park, SAM’s late-night art party Remix kicks off at 8 with music by local DJs, dancing, cocktails, and artist talks. First 50 people wearing gingham get in free.

Swoon to singer-songwriter Amos Lee at Chateau Ste. Michelle; California alt-country band Calexico joins.

Or you could enter a dream within a dream within a dream when Inception screens at dusk at Mural Amphitheatre.

Get your Jeff Bridges fix at Fremont Outdoor Movies’s Tron-a-thon. The Tron double header starts with the 1982 original, where the Dude plays a brilliant young software engineer, and closes with Tron Legacy (2010), where he plays…a brilliant old software engineer. Doors open at 7; film starts at 9.

Tis a cultural event when the Boston Red Sox visit Safeco play the Mariners. We learn how to swear in a different language. Those dirty water lovers are in town Friday through Sunday.

Nibble your way down 12th Avenue on Capitol Hill during the 12th Avenue Neighborhood Festival. Bars and restaurants along the block—including Skillet, the Local Vine, Barrio, La Spiga, and High 5 Pie—offer up cheap bites and drink deals.

All the Go-Go’s—Belinda Carlisle, Charlotte Caffey, Gina Schock, Jane Wielden, and Kathy Valentine—are back together for a 30th anniversary Go-Go Ladies Gone Wild Tour and they’re stopping by Woodland Park for a BECU ZooTunes show. Lock up your children.
