Seattle-based singer-songwriter Meagan Grandall's Lemolo is on stage at the Crocodile on Friday.

Fri, Dec 13
Comb through descriptions of Lemolo’s music and words like “dreamy” and “soundscape” come up so frequently you might think the songs had been experienced in a fog, their clarity somehow glazed away. Sure, apply the terms to her third album, Swansea, as well. It’s still lush and a little diffuse, the sonic palate full of color and texture, strings and keys and layers of vocals. But there’s a new directness and grandeur. If landscapes are to be invoked, think mountains. Crocodile, $12

Open Vault: Rare and Holiday Aquavit Night
It’s a night for Scandinavian liquor at Skål, which opens up the cellar to supply patrons with rare aquavit (sort of like gin but driven by dill and caraway, not juniper). Expect one-ounce pours from Norway, Sweden, and Denmark at this one-night-only event. Skal Beer Hall, A la carte

Sat, Dec 14
In the last of three shows at the Pocket Theater, Miscast puts improvisers at the center of popular film and television shows to act out scenes that they haven’t seen, proving that if ignorance isn’t bliss, it can certainly be funny. Pocket Theater, $10

Sorry I Missed You
