Bang for Your Buck

Cheap Week Seattle: March 9–15

Hip-hop collective Doomtree takes Neumos, Seattle Jewish Film Festival returns for year 20, and the female spirit of Bell Jar: the best ways to spend your week without spending much.

By Atoosa Moinzadeh March 9, 2015

The Ghost Gallery's Bell Jar exhibit features Leigh Riibe's We’ve Only Just Begun.

Mon, Mar 9
As one of hip-hop’s most diverse collectives, Doomtree always brings the heat. The five rappers and two producers sonically attack listeners from all angles. One moment emcee P.O.S. might lay out his anarchist punk aggression only to cede the mic to Dessa’s smooth lyrical flow, and in the next Sims will chime in with some punchy cheekiness. The crew keeps things tight as ever on Doomtree’s new album, All Hands. Neumos, $17

Thru June 7
Eloquent Objects: Georgia O’Keeffe and Still-Life Art in New Mexico
The harshness of the New Mexico desert begets an appreciation for fleeting flourishes of life and color that dot the landscape. Led by Georgia O’Keeffe’s painted floral masterworks, generations of artists have captured the vitality of the American Southwest. Come to think of it, it’s not so different from the isolation-bred creativity of the Northwest. Tacoma Art Museum, $14

Thru April 2
Bell Jar
Kicking off Ghost Gallery's eight-month series of exhibits by female-identifying artists, Bell Jar curates the work of 24 women exploring the feminine narrative via works housed inside the classic air-tight glass enclosures. The mixed-media bell jars remain on display through April. Stay tuned for more female-centric in Ghost Gallery's near future. Ghost Gallery, Free

Mar 14–Mar 22
