Seattle, a new week is approaching and that means there are tons of new things to do! It also means you should get out of the house. We won’t tell you what to do, but here are 8 things to do in Seattle this week.

You know, just for options purposes. Let’s check out the picks!

Motown on Mondays 

What’s better than getting funky on a Monday? Join DJs dj100proof, Supreme La Rock, DJ Sessions, and Blueyedsoul for the best of Motown. This happens every Monday, so you may have just found your new ritual to start the week.

When: Monday, January 27
Where: Bar Sue, 1407 14th Avenue

To call your new album ‘King of R&B’ is a confident move. Lucky for us, Jacquees has got the voice, the collaborators, and the style to back it up. Don’t believe us? Go and see for yourself!

When: Wednesday, January 29
Where: Moore Theatre, 1932 2nd Avenue
Cost: $28

Michael Kiwanuka

On the same night as Jacquees, another fantastic concert goes down. Michael Kiwanuka’s latest self-titled album is the kind of product that you know will be just as popular 20 years from now as it is today. For that reason, we’re willing to suffer through resale prices.

When: Wednesday, January 29
Where: The Showbox, 1426 1st Avenue
Cost: $110 and up

Seattle Scavenger Hunt 

Want to explore the city in a fun and unique way? It looks like this can be done any day of the week, because it’s based on an app. Do it alone, with your SO, with friends or with strangers. Whoa, that sounded wrong. Walk from landmark to landmark to discover art, culture, and history.

When: Whenever you want!

Indie Game Revolution 

Seattle is tech hub at this point so you can expect that at least a few times a week gamer ish events will crop up. This exhibition is a dynamic and immersive game exhibit that features work from more than 40 game developers and designers, with plenty of playable displays. Sounds pretty fun.
