Hiphop Party

Dyme Def at Vera Project

While a whole lot of Seattle's hiphoppers are getting play these days, I gotta call out Dyme Def as my favorite. They're more than a couple rappers and an MC—Dyme Def are rap and rolling astronauts, and their songs are as much catchy pop as ballsy hiphop. Tonight's show also features dance performances by Miechia Taylor and the girls of Kutt'n'Up, and the whole party is hosted by Khingz of Abyssinian Creole. (Vera Project, Seattle Center, 956-8372. 7:30 pm, $6/$5 with club card, all ages.)



Sgt. Rigsby and His Amazing Silhouettes at Theatre Off Jackson

The annual return of Sgt. Rigsby and His Amazing Silhouettes is cause for celebration. This is shadow puppetry for sinners, with wicked, witty stories about randy preachers, merry drunks, and a recurring character named Jenny, a singing chicken turned Parisian whore. In this year's show, innocent children search for their lost pets in a cruel metropolis—but the plot is just an excuse for Sgt. Rigsby (né Scot Augustson) to write testicle puns, an awkward sex scene between a hippo and a bear, and a conclusion wherein beer is the hero. (Theatre Off Jackson, 409 Seventh Ave S, 800-838-3006. 7:30 pm, $15.)
