Lucky Peterson with John "Greyhound" Maxwell
Buffalo-born Lucky Peterson released his first blues album at five years old. By his teens he played keys and guitar for Etta James, Bobby “Blue” Bland, and Otis Rush. Now celebrating his 50th year in the music industry, Peterson glides from guitar to organ to keys to bass to drums to trumpet with help from John “Greyhound” Maxwell. While rooted in classic blues, Peterson's most recent original album, The Son of a Bluesman, features twinges of 1970s funk and soul. Triple Door, $25

Art and Mind
Van Gogh, Blake, Goya, Munch—art and madness can go hand-in-hand. In Art and Mind, director Amelie Ravalec explores the relationship between art, unconsciousness, and the mind. Through interviews with psychologists, art historians, neuroscientists, and museum curators from around the world, the documentary traces how a deeper understanding of the human brain helped form some of history’s greatest artistic movements.

Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor
Five years ago, Michael Brown Jr. was killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, spurring the Black Lives Matter movement.

Looking back on the movement’s failures and triumphs so far, she highlights the necessity to keep fighting for black liberation. Town Hall, $5

Melissa Shoshahi

“Iranians aren’t terrorists," says Melissa Shoshahi in her comedy short I-Ran From the Travel Ban. "Sure, there may have been a hostage situation like a gazillion years ago, but didn’t Ben Affleck get an Oscar out of it? You’re welcome.” In response to Trump’s 2017 travel ban, the stand-up joined her friend Aron Kader to form the “Travel Ban Comedy Show,” hoping to combat negative Muslim stereotypes through comedy. Affectionately known as the “Persian Cher,” Seattleite Shoshahi is the first Iranian-American stand-up comedian to tour internationally, often raising awareness for epilepsy along the way.
