Il Sogno Del Marinaio (with Mike Watt) , Bo White y Su Orquesta

Mon., Oct. 20

IL SOGNO DEL MARINAIO

Let’s be honest here — no matter what the name of the band is, people are probably going to refer to it as “Mike Watt and the other guys.” Watt, bassist/co-founder of the Minutemen and Firehose, is the obvious draw here. His bass is the driving force to the atmospheric music which also offers a backdrop to some of Watt’s gravelly, spoken-word style of lyrical presentation.

$12/$15

The Boxing Gym

Oct. 20-Dec. 18

Using photographs, poetry and film, artists de’Angelo Dia and Shaun El C. Leonardo have created an exhibit based around a former boxer whose career has gone from glory to gloom. In the exhibit, we see the boxer in an abandoned gym with punching bags and debris on the floor around him. This former “macho” man sits with no punches to be thrown, as the exhibit makes a statement about the kickback associated with pain. (Anita Overcash) Free admission

David Kroll: New Paintings

Through Oct. 31

The Seattle-based artist fuses landscapes and still lifes, but adds contemporary twists. Kroll goes deeper to juxtapose ideas about life, nature and the fluidity of change. Take, for example, his “Koi & Light Blue Vase,” which imposes a school of koi fish flapping above a vase. The fish flow freely and seem to represent natural and artificial, and ethereal vs. material.
