Fremont Abbey's The Round (#114)
The Fremont Abbey's monthly series the Round is the softest mashup of artistic mediums around. Musicians, visual artists, and poets gather together for a communal night of expression that sometimes finds them playing off each other, sometimes becomes spontaneously collaborative, and always offers something unique. For the 114th edition, the Abbey brings in singer-songwriters Lacey Brown and Zach Fleury, slam poet Jamie Marlow, and visual artist Heather Marie. Fremont Abbey Arts Center, $8–$10.

Cathedrals IX: Mirah and Lemolo
K Records staple Mirah no longer resides in the Pacific Northwest, but the region’s aura still permeates her indie pop songs. She returns for another round of Fremont Abbey’s always charming Cathedrals series. She gets aid in filling the sonic space from Lemolo, the rare two-piece that sounds substantially better in cavernous venues like St. Mark’s, thanks to Meagan Grandall’s heart-piercing vocals and swirling dream pop compositions. St. Mark's Cathedral, $15.
