8 things to do in Seattle this weekend (February 21-23)
Happy Thursday, folks! We did practically nothing except work this week so we’re antsy to get out and about in the city this weekend. Well, at least we have a solid lineup of options to choose from. Concerts, parades, maybe even an art show? Now that would be a real treat.
Here are 8 things to do this weekend in Seattle.
It’s pretty safe to say Bone (now Boneless, thanks to Buffalo Wild Wings) Thugs-N-Harmony is an American classic. This Cleveland rap group is well-loved and sure to give you a night you won’t forget. We might even say this is our number one pick for Seattle concerts in February!
When: Friday, February 21st
Where: The Showbox, 1426 1st Ave
Cost: $60 and up
You can dance the night away to all your favorite Reggaeton hits. Expect to hear music from Daddy Yankee, Don Omar, and much more. Chop Suey is a solid choice for a fun way to end your week.
When: Friday, February 21
Where: Chop Suey, 1325 E Madison St
You might be a crazy cat person and if you aren’t, we bet you know someone who is. This is the perfect fun, light-hearted event to distract yourself from the gloomy weather.
When: Saturday, February 22 and Sunday, February 23
Where: SIFF Cinema Uptown, 511 Queen Anne Ave N
Cost: $11 and up
You or someone you know probably secretly or not so secretly love horror movies. And ‘The Art in Horror: Horror and the Director’ series by Scarecrow Video is an excellent way to geek out on the subject. This week you can enjoy the film Vampyr (1932) and participate in a discussion led by film critic Robert Horton.
When: Saturday, February 22nd
Where: Scarecrow Video, 5030 Roosevelt Way NE
We’ll bet you never thought you could make your own movie. These filmmakers have challenged that notion by creating films shot on smartphones. Oh, and the films are three minutes or less, so trust us, you have enough time to enjoy them!
When: Through Saturday, February 22
Where: Center on Contemporary Art (CoCA), 114 Third Avenue S
Fremont may be the center of the universe and well, it’s also one of the weirdest places in Seattle. Head over to Fremont to watch this tiny parade in the spirit of Mardi Gras but uh make it trolls. You can expect a flash-mob-style procession and mini-glittering themed floats. It will be happening smack dab in the middle of the Fremont Market so it’s a double whammy event if you’re already planning on attending the market.
When: Sunday, February 23rd
Where: Fremont Sunday Market, 3401 Evanston Ave North
Watching dance can be extremely inspiring, especially when you’re watching solo dancers. We recommend checking out this event being put on by On The Boards with a mix of local and national dancers showcasing great choreography.
When: On through the weekend
Where: On the Boards, 100 W Roy St
Cost: $28 and up
This weekend you can watch the best of Asian American film right here in our lovely city of Seattle. The films are being shown at a variety of theatres meaning you can plan a day around where you’ll be seeing your movie. Because, why not go all out?
When: On through the weekend
Where: Various locations
Cost: $13 GA or $90 Festival Pass
And that’s our list for the weekend, folks! We recognize that this ended up being a little film-heavy. But hey, we only pick the best!
