Our suggested event is an afro-pop superstar named Oliver Mtukudzi, playing at Jazz Alley tonight, but if you're looking for alternate recommendations for this evening, I'll list a few.

Whoa! Do you want to enjoy the bounty of the sea this evening? Get on the Oyster Bus. Like my uncle always says: Only eat shellfish in a month that has an "R" in its name! And guess what: JanuaRy and furthermore FebRuaRy.

UPDATE: The Oyster Bus tickets are evidently sold out. But continue reading for more recommendations.

At Elliott Bay Book Company, there's a reading that Paul recommends. Go to this reading. Don't do it for Paul, do it for yourself.

YOU'RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME TO SEE FRANZ VON STUCK. The exhibition is planning on packing up and heading out of town without even saying goodbye to you, while you're watching the Super Bowl on Sunday, like a total philistine.

And one last musical recommendation for tonight: some sort of emo-stravanganza at the Vera.
