What Are You Doing This Week? Stranger Critics Answer the Question

Posted by on Mon, Jun 9, 2014 at 5:23 PM

Christopher Frizzelle: "Joey Veltcamp is a queer artist not enough people pay attention to. I really love his paintings, but I also just saw some amazing quilts he had on exhibit at ArtsWest—quilts incorporating text and Northwest-y imagery and owls and Pussy Riot and a bunch of stuff I can't remember. Jen wrote about that show. Anyway, I just found out another show of his quilts is opening at Cupcake Royale on Capitol Hill on Thursday evening after work, so I'm definitely going to that."

Bethany Jean Clement: "Charles and I have discussed how to properly pronounce 'Piketty' so many times that I feel I must go to Vermillion tomorrow to witness his elocutional triumph. Blitz is Thursday, and that's always a good time. By Friday, it's supposed to be raining, so I'm taking the day off and going to the Palm Springs of Washington—that's Yakima—for the weekend. (Actually, a little further, but near there.) Wine and BB guns = two great tastes that go great together!"

Charles Mudede: "Everyone knows what I'm doing this week. I'm going to talk about the 'rock star' French economist Thomas Piketty at Vermillion Gallery tomorrow, June 10th."

Jen Graves: "I'm checking out the drawings of icebergs at Winston-Wachter tomorrow night."

Kelly O: "I'm going to see artist, musician, (and, um, *HOT* Pony bartender) Jess Wamre (along with superstar host Mark Mitchell) add live music to the classically SILENT Oscar Wilde-scripted film Salome at Northwest Film Forum on Thursday evening. Then, in keeping with the trippy vintage film freakout, I wanna go see Alejandro Jodorowsky's El Topo either Friday or Sunday at the Grand Illusion Cinema. I might take a puff-puff of this amazing new thing called a "JUJU Joint" before the latter.

Brendan Kiley: "I’m going to finish Jonathan Raban’s Passage to Juneau, which I really should’ve already read—but I’m finding something to love on every page and looking forward to the rest."

David Schmader: "Going to Lost Lake at least once to get a pint of their Grapefruit Hefeweizen, which is just ridiculously delicious. Also, prepping for Northwest New Works, and eagerly awaiting the season finale (series finale?) of FX's Fargo."

I'm actually considering going to Charles' deal tomorrow. What the hell has gotten into me??

"Passage to Juneau" is wonderful.

I'm humming the Picketty song "Everything Is Awesome" while I study
