Weekly Must List: June 24-30, 2010
6/25 (Friday) – Paris-based indie-poppers CocoRosie are touring in support of the new album, Grey Oceans, released on Seattle’s Sub Pop Records in May. These eccentric sisters meld electro-pop, hip-hop and ambient beats with a vocal style reminiscent of Bjork and Joanna Newsom—which has earned them a place in the hallowed “freak folk” genre. Freak or chic? You decide. 8 p.m. $20. Showbox Market, 1426 First Ave. 206.628.3151; showboxonline.com
Bellevue Strawberry Festival
6/26 & 6/27 (Saturday & Sunday) – Indulge in a little sweet summer nostalgia on the Eastside this weekend. From funnel cake to shortcake, get your strawberry fix at this two-day, family-friendly festy. For more information visit the festival web site.
Breast Opening Night
6/26 (Saturday) – It was hard to miss the opening of Déjà Vu’s new Dream Girls strip club in SoDo in April, thanks to the 17-foot-high digital-photo signs. In “honor” of the new naughty neighbors, SoDo’s Ouch My Eye gallery presents Breast, an array of mammary art—from sculpture to collage to painting to photography—by Seattle artists examining the role of the breast in American culture. Through 7/25. 7 p.m. Free. Ouch My Eye Studio, 1022 First Ave. S; ouchmyeye.com
Rock ’n’ roll Marathon
6/26 (Saturday) - It's too late to register but you can still cheer on the runners in the SEATTLE ROCK ’N’ ROLL MARATHON. It's too late to enter, but with live music at every mile and a post-race concert (bands TBA), spectators are still bound to get a respectable workout. 7 a.m. start at Tukwila Gateway Corporate Center, finish line outside Qwest Field; seattle.competitor.com.
