A Small History of Amal, Age 7
Originating in New York, Forward Flux Productions moved to its new Seattle home in 2014. Often producing female-written work, their latest production by New York writer Lindsay Joelle, follows the life of parentless seven-year-old Amal in Mumbai, India as he moves in with his uncle before he falls inexplicably ill. West of Lenin, $30

Shannon and the Clams, Sávila
Part of the Hardly Art roster, Shannon and the Clams play excellent surf rock—with suave riffs and assured vocals. Just as noteworthy, though, is Sávila, a cumbia-Latin R&B trio out of Oregon. They were so charismatic opening for La Luz a few months ago that I gladly would have delayed the main act for a few more songs. Crocodile, $20
