Today the Stranger Suggests

posted by on April 20 at 12:00 PM


(Art) From his artist statement—”I see a world where blood and sweat mix with sunsets and snowdrifts”—Rhode Island photographer Jesse Burke sounds like a cheeseball. But his work delivers on the romantic promises he makes about depicting masculinity as both fragile and bloodthirsty. Never, never have shotgunning beer and looking out onto a lake through a curtain of flowers fit so perfectly together. And the salon installation is gorgeous.

Dina Martina: B-Sides

(World-Class Freak) When she’s not making Seattle audiences weep with nausea-tinged joy, chanteuse/raconteur/train wreck Dina Martina plies her trade for lucky audiences in Provincetown and New York City. Her new Seattle show, B-Sides, compiles the best treats from the P-Town and NYC extravaganzas, and anyone who appreciates so-bad-it’s-brilliant satirical camp would be stupid to miss it. Through May 26. (Re-bar, 1114 Howell St, 325-6500. 8 pm, $18, 21+.) David Schmader
