Cello X
Also known as Seattle Cello eXperiment, Cello X is almost like the Pentatonix of cello music. Comprised of classically trained players, the group extends the boundaries of what cello music can be by performing a mix of classics from the likes of Bach, modern music by groups like Alice in Chains and Metallica, and even a chilling rendition of the Game of Thrones theme song. The Crocodile, $5

Tangerine: Sugar Teeth Release Show
When it comes to Seattle garage pop, nobody can match the pure sonic sweetness of Tangerine. Led by sister duo Marika and Miro Justad, the band blends surf-y guitar and upbeat pop melodies to create sunny tunes with just enough crunchy rock edge. Tangerine heads to Neumos to release its latest EP Sugar Teeth with opening support from S and Draemhouse. Neumos, $10

Andy Kindler
"I'm so edgy. My act is like walking a on a tightrope on the ground. I'm like Chris Rock without the charisma, and the confidence, and the material." -Andy Kindler. The crotchety comedian’s comedian brings his brand of weary self-deprecating humor to the punk confines of El Corazón, which should only exacerbate his agitated awkwardness. Currently the voice of Mort on Bob's Burgers, Kindler has also made an impressive 40 appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman. El Corazon, $12–$15

Jan 15–17
Some Like it Hot
The classic film starring Marilyn Monroe that is, as the tagline states, “too hot for words” makes its reappearance at Central Cinema this weekend. Originally released in 1959, Some Like It Hot has gone on to appear on numerous lists of the best cinematic comedies, even topping AFI’s 100 Years…100 Laughs. When two musicians (Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon) witness a mob hit, the duo disguises themselves as members of an all-female band to avoid being caught. Funny as it is timeless, any lover of comedy—or film—that hasn't seen Some Like It Hot should rectify that as soon as possible. Central Cinema, $5–$8
