Slim pickings ‘round the Rock this weekend, Bainbridge (unless you all know something I don’t).
Seems it might be as good a chance as any to slow down and take it easy, as the coming weeks are chalk-full of fun — but this weekend not so much.
In fact, there are some rather serious goings on afoot on Saturday.
There are at least two options for the civically-engaged seeking to spotlight the issue of gun safety on March 24. Students, educators, and other concerned citizens will gather at the intersection of Silverdale Way and Kitsap Mall Blvd. in Silverdale from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 24 to promote safe schools free of gun violence at the “4 the Kids – Kitsap March,” one of over 500 planned nationally. Visit the “4 the Kids” Facebook page for more information and updates on events: www.facebook.com/4theKidsKitsap.
In Seattle as well there will be a march, “March For Our Lives,” starting at 10 a.m. It will begin in Cal Anderson Park (1635 11th Ave) and culminate in a rally at Key Arena.
Search “March For Our Lives – Seattle” on Facebook for more information.
Also on Saturday, Guayaba and Terror/Cactus will share the Space Craft stage at Rolling Bay Hall at 7:30 p.m.
Rapper/vocalist Guayaba as described by the KEXP blog:
“As an artist, she’s fronted metal acts, made experimental pop ballads, raps, etc. But this idea extends beyond how she executes her vision. Digging through her lyrics in her latest album, ‘Black Trash/White House,’ she embraces her race, gender, sexuality and every facet of herself that makes her who she is with an unshakable, bilingual flow.”
Terror/Cactus is a Seattle-based group with members from Argentina, Colombia, and the United States.
The masked trio combines cumbia and other traditional Latin American rhythms with psychedelic guitars, hypnotic beats, and lush soundscapes. With live shows illuminated by striking visual projections, Terror/Cactus creates a space where the audience can become fully immersed in the experience.
Tickets, $12 in advance ($15 at the door) are available at www.spacecraftpresents.org.
