Laurie Kilmartin plays two shows at Laughs Comedy Club this weekend. 

Fri, Mar 22
The Bgp
This five-piece soul act doesn't hide its Puyallup roots—they shot an entire music video for a song called "Uhmerica" on the Washington State Fairgrounds, toting corn dogs and rocking out with members of the petting zoo. They return to the big city to promote their latest album, Hurt Me Kiss Me, featuring single "Official." Its soulful chords and dance-worthy rhythm recall Hall and Oates. Triple Door, $15

Greatest Hits Tour: Chart Toppers and Heart-Stoppers
Ever wonder who designed our hyper-angular downtown library? Or how long the Fairmont Olympic has been hosting lavish afternoon tea? These are the questions the Seattle Architecture Foundation is prepped to answer during its Greatest Hits Tour of downtown Seattle's architectural marvels. Fairmont Olympic Hotel, Free–$18

Laurie Kilmartin 
Comedian Laurie Kilmartin has been featured on Conan O'Brien's show, was a finalist in Last Comic Standing, and—by her own admission—is a mother of questionable quality. Her sets are filled with references to adventures in parenting that may make you laugh, but also might make you a more confident parent. Laughs Comedy Club, $20

Sun, Mar 24
Josef Alton: Throw Away Faces
Local author Josef Alton creates an intercontinental murder mystery in his new novel, Throw Away Faces. A former student at Seattle University and Trinity College Dublin, Alton uses his experience of each city to craft the story following a row of patricides occurring oceans apart. When Scotsman Enoch Campbell receives a mysterious manuscript from across the world, he must decide whether its author is an ally or the man behind a string of heinous crimes. Spooked in Seattle, Free
