Mount Eerie

Phil Elverum is one of the most singular, stunning songwriters ever to emerge from the Pacific Northwest—a place that permeates his music. In Black Wooden Ceiling Opening, Elverum applies his "organic" black-metal treatments to old and new songs of Mount Eerie, transforming raw acoustic numbers into ragged rockers. Live, expect him to ramble and improvise and render his songs almost embarrassingly intimate. Joining him are fellow Anacortes native and D+ collaborator Karl Blau, as well as Your Heart Breaks and Madeline Adams. (Vera Project, Seattle Center, 956-8372. 7:30 pm, $8/$9, all ages.)


Future Theater

'interlace [falling star]'

Like life itself, this new play by local writer/director Scotto Moore is silly, in both the ancient (spiritually touched) and modern (frivolous) senses of that word. It is also serious (history has not changed the sense of that word). Set in an infinitely tall building—one that might resemble a new tower in Dubai or a tower Frank Lloyd Wright once imagined in a moment of madnessinterlace is a tireless narrative machine that generates comic nonsense and cosmic concepts. (Annex Theatre, 1100 E Pike St, 728-0933. 8 pm, $12.)

    interlace [falling star] is grand. Great fun while you're watching it, and several concepts, images and characters have been entertaining my brain since I saw it.

    Highly entertaining and full of laughs. The leading lady is such a charmer!

    Go see interlace [falling star]! A great play with strong casting, performed very well with a functional minimalist set design.

    I thought interlace [falling star] was great -- a nice little Gnostic fairy tale center wrapped in a chewy entertaining production.

    Highly recommend Interlace. Fun, thought provoking show.

    Go, go, GO! Go see this. Tonight! (Or at least before the run ends.) Fun, hilarious, clever, irreverent. Great cast, brilliant writing, original music. Well worth the price of admission and your time.

    Interlace -- What a show! I'm not usually a theater guy, but this was a lot of fun. I just love Scotto's twisted sense of humor.

    Interlace hits on every one of its infinite levels. Everything was solid from the spot-on acting and the literally brilliant set to the writing that sends you home on a thousand google quests to find out just what the difference between a deity and demiurge is after all.
