You'll be hearing this dj's name quite a bit in the future! Look for him, along with Jagga Culture and Selecta YT (Reggae Soundclash Regional DJ Champion!) at Imperial at the Crown Room on 2nd & 4th Thursday's starting in January 2010!

Things to look for this weekend … Free beer/open bar events, bacon tastings, whiskey tastings, 100 artist art shows, 200 tuba player gatherings, Iron Bartender drink competition, boat parties, latke cookoff, crafty wonderland, female masturbation performances and erotic open mic… do something fun this weekend!

    I think the Tuba Christmas Concert at Pioneer is actually Saturday 11/12, not Sunday as you have it listed. I just verified on the Pioneer Square website.

    Sorry, I meant Saturday 12/12 (obviously, not November) … 1:30-3pm

    Wish I had verified with the Pioneer Square website or read the comment above regarding Tuba Xmas. I went down Sunday only to be met with a very empty square. :( Damn, I missed it!
