Har Mar Superstar
One can't truly be a rock star without an absurd abundance of confidence. Har Mar Superstar (Sean Tillmann) sweats bravado out his pores. While he may seem unassuming when he first takes the stage, when the music starts he instantly transforms into a white hot ball of energy. Har Mar brings tunes that radiate warm and breezy pop rock sweetness on his new album, Best Summer Ever. Tractor Tavern, $12

A Very Special Episode
When sitcoms need to get serious about drugs, child predators, or any other social ills, they turn to the tried-and-true TV trope of the very special episode. As it turns out, the disconnect created by the overly solemn tone and stiff acting in the episodes often breeds unintentionally hilarious results. Jet City Improv follows the formula but cuts out the sincerity for a night of improvisational comedy and important life lessons in its new show, A Very Special Episode. Jet City Improv, $10–$18

Carrie McGee
Meditative calm flows forth from Carrie McGee’s transparent plastic panels. With metal leaf, rust, and oil, the artist employs both natural and chemical processes to imbue each acrylic panel with beautifully subdued color, then hangs the squares and rectangles in repeating patterns. The results achieve a balance between aesthetic relaxation and pleasure. Patricia Rovzar Gallery, Free

Kris Orlowski: Often in the Pause Release Show
Kris Orlowski can capture an audience's attention with just an acoustic guitar and his voice, but he's growing ever better at fleshing out his ideas with his musical friends. The earnest Seattle troubadour delivers his most polished collection of songs to date on the new album, Often in the Pause. The fresh tunes find Orlowski and his band tapping into a bigger, slightly darker, more rocking sound (with ultra sleek production) while still maintaining the same melodic songwriting core. The group heads to the Crocodile to celebrate Often in the Pause's release with opening support from the Hollers and Silver Torches. The Crocodile, $20–$22

Epilogue/Prologue: A Celebration of Hugo House 
All good books (and things) must come to an end... but some things are not gone forever. Celebrate Hugo House's last days in their current abode before temporarily moving out so that a brand new home can be built on the same lot. Mingle with the local literary scene, share your own Hugo House stories in a confession booth, grab some food from the Skillet food truck, and, most importantly, write on the walls. Excerpts writings will be photographed and scanned into an ebook. Endings don't have to be sad, this one has a guaranteed sequel. Hugo House, Free
