From saisons to dubbels, Belgian beer takes over the Fisher Pavilion on Saturday.

Jan 24 & 25
Ivan Decker
Ivan Decker is a hot take machine, cranking out observations on hamsters being terrible pets, the terrifying acceleration of spiders, and the danger of holding both a knife and a slippery mango. His debut comedy album I Wanted To Be A Dinosaur won a JUNO award, giving the formerly Vancouver-based comic some Canadian cred. Laughs Comedy Club, $15

Jan 24 & 25
Italian Baroque
The Seattle Symphony brings Antonio Vivaldi and other icons of Italian baroque to Benaroya Hall this weekend, supplying dramatic concertos and a somber sonata by Tomaso Albinoni. Violinist Rachel Barton Pine joins the orchestra on stage. Benaroya, $25–$82

BAYNK
New Zealand electronica producer BAYNK is self-taught, starting with a degree in chemical engineering and Soundcloud plays in the triple digits. Now, he supplies an easygoing blend of house beats, smooth synth wave, and mesmerizing vocals on tracks like “Poolside” and “What You Need.” At his Seattle tour stop, $1 from each ticket goes to the Climate Reality Project. Neumos, $19

Lunar New Year Fair

Kathleen Madigan
After over 40 late night appearances, a handful of hour-long specials, and 30 years on stage, Kathleen Madigan is a comedy veteran. With a conversational tone, she sneaks in witty jabs and isn’t afraid to shock. From complaining about elderly politicians (“We are being governed by a Florida bridge club and nobody seems to care”) to imagining millennial coal miners, her storytelling gets a boost from her easy stage presence. Moore Theatre, $28
