The Round music and arts series is still running merrily along. Tonight, the Bartlett hosts the 17th edition of the show, this time with local folk acts Perenne, Feral Anthem and Jacob Jones getting everyone in touch with their emotional sides.

The show also features Diarrhea Planet and Music Band. Cost is $10 and the show starts at 8 pm. MOOTSY’S
The famed yellow-doored establishment is finally old enough to drink this weekend. To celebrate the joyous occasion, the downtown watering hole is putting on two back-to-back shows full of some of the best local acts around. Friday night, it’s Von the Baptist, Pine League and Cursive Wires providing the soundtrack; on Saturday, it’s Six State Bender (an on-and-off-again band that has songs called "Tits" and "Spokane Drunk City"), Fun Ladies, Dark White Light and Foxy Sluts. Shows start at 9 pm and cost is $5. Get there early as these shows are sure to be at capacity.
LOOK AHEAD TO MONDAY: The Sword plays the Pin! The Blind Pets cut the crap and play Baby Bar. Both shows are going to be off-the-chain wild.
