Best Bets for March 24-27 | The Bainbridge Blab

There isn’t a ton on tap this holiday weekend for those seeking to get out and about on Bainbridge, but if you’re averse to traffic and long ferry lines, consider staying closer to home anyway because commuting predictions are not sunny.

However, for those sticking around here …

First, Knucklehead, billed as “Kitsap County’s longest running, and still hottest classic rockers,” will take to the stage at the Treehouse Café for a special free concert at 8 p.m. Friday, May 24.

Donations will be accepted; admittance to those 21-and-older only.

The band’s repertoire boasts staples from the likes of AC/DC, ZZ Top, Snoop Dog, Johnny Cash and more.

Knucklehead is a classic rock power trio out of Bremerton. The band consists of three of the most well-seasoned, talented musicians in the Northwest: Tim McGovern (guitar/vocals), Jeff Omeron (drums/vocals) and Scott Pollock (bass/vocals).

Visit www.treehousebainbridge.com for a complete list of upcoming events.

Memorial Day services sponsored by the American Legion’s Colin Hyde Post No. 172 will take place at two locations this year.

Both services are Monday, May 27.

At 10:45 a.m. the post will begin the observation with a public gathering at the war memorial at Bainbridge High School (between the gymnasium and the LGI).

Next, at 11:30 a.m. at American Legion Post Hall No. 172, located at 7880 NE Bucklin Hill Road, there will be a flag lowering by the Boy Scout Troop 1564 and Girl Scout Troop 1804.

If a day in the city is your pleasure – should you decide to ignore the lines and just go for it – filmmaker and BHS grad Brendan Bennett is set to debut his biggest movie yet during the biggest movie event in the Emerald City: the Seattle International Film Festival.

Bennett directed, edited and co-wrote “Cutioner.exe,” a 15-minute movie about a code-savvy IT guru searching for human contact in an AI-dominated near-future, looking for companionship at any cost. He dismantles faulty systems for a living, but has no idea how to begin a dialogue with his assistant, with whom most of his human contact comes from, when he begins to have feelings for her.

It will be screened as part of a special nine-film lineup (91 minutes total) called “Destination Northwest,” at noon Monday, May 27 at the SIFF Cinema Uptown. Bennett and several of the other featured directors will be in attendance.

Tickets, $11 each ($9 for SIFF members), are on sale. Visit www.siff.net/festival/destination-northwest to learn more.
