A way to keep up with Seattle theaters, concert halls, galleries, museums and other fine-arts events.

Six excellent arts events … and one OK one

Two great concerts, one middling play, two novel dance performances and a pair of engaging gallery exhibitions: That’s the Seattle Times arts-review count for the weekend.

Here are links to our reviewer’s stories, so you can find them all in one place. Note that several of these shows continue into the remainder of October, so you haven’t missed out.

Charles R. Cross says Saturday night’s Death Cab for Cutie/The Head and the Heart concert at KeyArena was a delight, start to finish. Don’t miss the gallery of photos we posted with the review. Meanwhile, music blogger Andrew Matson embraced Shabazz Palace’s unorthodox hip-hop show at the Triple Door on Friday night.

Theater critic Misha Berson praised Carolee Carmello’s performance in the 5th Avenue Theatre’s “Saving Aimee,” a show not without its flaws.

Arts writer Michael Upchurch reports on The Cabiri’s coolish, ghoulish “Winternacht,” a dance/mime/aerial show that sounds seasonally spooky.

Upchurch also enjoyed an experimental performance piece called “Skirmish,” which features two of Seattle’s most inventive creative types, Christian Swenson and Haruko Nishimura.

The indefatigable Upchurch also lodged reviews of two art shows: One for people who love maps, the other for people who love crazy contraptions.
