Pride parties tonight at Crush and Holocene! All the weekend’s events are here.

Buddy Jay’s Jamaican Jazz Band looks fun too… Eastburn, 1800 W Burnside * 10 pm * free

Another event— they’re too interesting not to include— Felicia and the Dinosaur has their tour kickoff show at Red and Black. 400 SE 12th Ave * 7 pm – 10 pm * $5 suggested donation

What’s that… ? Funk, hip hop, perhaps an afro-beat groove… I can’t really define it, but Bel Mizik looks and sounds like a good time.


All That Glitters Burlesque Academy is having a graduation showcase at Analog Cafe and Theater tonight. The show’s the glittery culmination of a six-week burlesque course. 8 pm – 10 pm * $5

I haven’t been to the Jade Lounge for quite a while, but it’s a intimate venue that takes chances with less-established artists. Tonight, a band called Head Rest (6 pm) and Christopher John Mead (8 pm) are performing. Jade Lounge, 2342 SE Ankeny * free
