Welcome to Skeleton Theatre, bringing back in 2016 a crowd favorite, “The Death of Rock”!

The one big change from when we did this show in 2010 and 2011 is…well, I don’t want to give it away now, do I? Suffice it to say, we’re trying something completely new for Skeleton Theatre this year. Come check out the show, and we’ll see how everybody likes our latest, interactive, feature!

The Death of Rock” runs 20 minutes and will play continuously on:

– Monday, October 31st (Halloween), from 6 pm to 9 pm

About the Show:
In 1930s Berlin, a group of left-leaning friends struggle to understand the world around them as Hitler rises to power. However, while they claim to have lofty ideals, they do not partake in active resistance against Hitler. The main character, Agnes, is mainly concerned about keeping her rent-controlled apartment. Meanwhile, these events are contrasted with a parallel presentation of events in America in the present day by a modern day activist, Zillah, who insists on taking action to fight repression and authoritarianism.

Words, Writers & West Seattle: Dirt Bikes, Drones and Other Ways to Fly @ Barnes and Noble, Westwood Village
Nov 4 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Dirt Bikes, Drones and Other Ways to Fly discussed by local author Conrad Wesselhoeft on November 4th.

Conrad Wesselhoeft is from West Seattle and is the author of contemporary novels for young adults. He likes to set his stories in places he has lived, including West Seattle, New Mexico, and “on the road.” He is the author of Adios, Nirvana, (2010) another contemporary young-adult novel from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

This presentation of Words, Writers & West Seattle’s ‘First Friday’ book-talk, sponsored by The Southwest Seattle Historical Society, is free and held at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village on Friday, November 4th from 5 to 7 pm.

In Dirt Bikes, a 17-year-old dirt-bike-riding daredevil catches the eye of the U.S. military because of his first-place ranking on a video game featuring drone warfare. The conflict between what the military wants him to do and the emotional scars he has suffered following a violet death in his family creates huge problems for the young man.

Wesselhoeft’s free presentation will begin at 5PM on Friday, November 4th, at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village. All purchases made by those attending the talk that afternoon and for the next five days will result in a contribution of ten percent of proceeds to the Southwest Seattle Historical Society under the Barnes and Noble’s Book Fair program.

Dirt Bikes received the 2014 “Reading the West” award for young-adult fiction. “It’s a huge honor, and I’m extremely grateful to the Mountains and Plains Independent Booksellers Association for choosing my book,” author Wesselhoeft said. The “Reading the West” awards honor books set in the Rocky Mountains or Great Plains.

“Words, Writers & West Seattle’s” next book-talk is scheduled for Dec. 2nd and will feature Arleen Williams and her third book of: The Alki Trilogy: Walking Home, a stirring journey into the world of African refugees in a Seattle backdrop. For videos on these and other authors’ presentations, visit: www.loghousemuseum.info/events/words-writers-and-west-seattle. Additional information on future presentations can be obtained by contacting Dora-Faye Hendricks, Chair, “Words, Writers & West Seattle” by phone at 206-280-9983 or by e-mail at Dora-Faye@comcast.net.

Arthur Migliazza & Bob Malone perform @ Kenyon Hall
Nov 4 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Blues and Boogie Woogie icon Arthur Migliazza returns to tear apart our Steinway, this time with guest artist Bob Malone. As a traveler in the world of first-rate pianists, Arthur encounters some outstanding fellow performers, and when possible he invites them to Kenyon Hall. As usual, he’s secured the services of another gem.

Bob Malone has toured the world as a solo artist for two decades and has played keyboards with rock legend John Fogerty since 2011. Classically trained, with a degree in jazz and a lifetime playing rock & roll clubs, theaters, and arenas, Bob’s sound is a one-of-a-kind hybrid of rock, blues, and New Orleans R & B, delivered with high-energy piano virtuosity and a voice all his own.

In my correspondence with Bob, I learned that his original training was classical organ and piano, and his teacher was the great theatre organist Ashley Miller, who played the Mighty Wurlitzer at Radio City Music Hall for years. Guess what that means.

Please visit arthurmigliazza.com and bobmalone.com for more information.

Tickets to the November 4th show are $20 general and $18 seniors and students. No table seats for this show.

To make a reservation, please e-mail kenyonhall@earthlink.net with your request. You’ll receive an e-mail confirming your reservation. For complete program information, please visit www.kenyonhall.org.

Come spend some time this month at West Seattle’s Lighthearted Entertainment Palace. And save room for one of our locally sourced, free-range Root Beer Floats!

About the Show:
In 1930s Berlin, a group of left-leaning friends struggle to understand the world around them as Hitler rises to power. However, while they claim to have lofty ideals, they do not partake in active resistance against Hitler. The main character, Agnes, is mainly concerned about keeping her rent-controlled apartment. Meanwhile, these events are contrasted with a parallel presentation of events in America in the present day by a modern day activist, Zillah, who insists on taking action to fight repression and authoritarianism.

Salamanders, Slugs and other Winter Wetness Lovers @ Camp Long
Nov 5 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm

With Naturalist Stewart Wechsler:

Join Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures for a walk in the wet woods. In many places Fall is when many plants and animals close up shop or head south, but Seattle’s wet season is the active time for a lot of animals and plants that are relatively dormant in the dry season. The slugs are slithering, the salamanders sally forth, and the Piggyback Plants are placing their baby plant pregnant palms down on the damp dirt to root, and reproduce. Many sorts of seedlings sprout as soon as the soil has had a sufficient sprinkling. Come on a tour to explore the life forms that wake up when it is wet! We will do the tour in anything but a heavy pour.

$15 adults, $10 kids

Call or e-mail, 206 932-7225 or ecostewart@gmail.com to pre-register so I can manage the group size, and communicate to people about any potential changes.

Longfellow Creek Watershed Walk & Salmon Watch @ Dragonfly Pavillion
Nov 5 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

From Puget Soundkeeper Alliance:

Join us as we walk a section of Longfellow Creek in West Seattle to investigate the health of one of our local salmon runs. Longfellow Creek, which flows from Roxhill Bog to Elliot Bay, provides spawning habitat for a population of coho salmon every year.

A group of dedicated volunteers is working with Soundkeeper to monitor whether the coho in Longfellow reproduce successfully or succumb to stormwater pollution in the river and die before spawning (a phenomenon known as pre-spawn mortality). Every day for the duration of the salmon run, teams are documenting their observations of live coho and dissecting the dead carcasses to check spawning condition. Come join our Saturday group of volunteers and see them in action!

Also at the event will be groups from the Nature Consortium, Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association, King County Conservation District, and the City of Seattle to talk about wetland recovery, native plants, rain gardens, and what Seattle is doing to reduce the effects of toxic stormwater runoff on salmon populations and other wildlife.

This is a great way to observe one of nature’s most amazing migrations, get a taste of scientific field work, and learn more about what you can do to restore the health of our local waterways.

Equipment: Be prepared to get dirty. Wear athletic clothing and shoes that can get wet. We will be walking along the creek through some muddy areas.

Date: Saturday, November 5th
Time: 11:30am to 1:00pm
Location: Dragonfly Garden, 4107 28th Avenue SW, Seattle 98126

Learn the Mosses Our Wildflowers Thrive In @ Lincoln Park
Nov 6 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

With Naturalist Stewart Wechsler:

Sunday November 6, 2016 at 10:00 am–12:00 pm, Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures offers: Learn the Mosses our Wildflowers Thrive in As We Help Them Both Re-cover the Earth:

While taking a tour of Lincoln Park’s mosses that grow on the ground, we’ll learn both about those mosses, and about how critically important they are to our local natural communities. The mosses not only make a beautiful bottom layer of the plant community, but also help the other local community members from the yellow Evergreen Violets to the Twinflowers, and likely even the Phantom Orchids. We will stop at some of the moss patches and carefully remove weeds that have invaded them, allowing the mosses to grow a bit quicker, and giving our indigenous plants, that grow best in moss beds, more room to grow. Stewart can also teach you some of the story of almost any local, natural community member from the birds to the beetles, the mushrooms to the mosses, and the wildflowers to the weeds, that we see, hear, smell, or taste, as we engage in the calming task of wiggling weeds out of the moss mattress we’re on. While you don’t need them, if you have them, you might bring a Hori Hori weeding tool, a maybe a good pair of leather gloves, and possibly a hand snipers, and maybe binoculars for the birds.

We will meet at Lincoln Park’s north parking lot (between SW Monroe St and SW Thistle St) by the kiosk at 10:00 am Sunday, October 2nd. You have the option to join us for coffee and pastries at Cafe Ladro (7011 California Ave SW) beforehand! Coffee hour starts at 8:30 am. I ask that people preregister to ensure that the group size is manageable both for me and the mosses. e-mail me at ecostewart@gmail.com or phone me at 206 932-7225 (currently only land line).

While the program is free, Stewart appreciates any useful support that the human community gives him that will help the growth of the success of his efforts to promote the protection and recovery our most precious and unique local natural communities that our misguided human culture has increasingly been degrading and diminishing.

Learn how to design 3D models suitable for 3D printing using Rhino 5, a 3D computer graphics and computer-aided design (CAD) software. This is day 1 of a 2-part class and you must attend both parts. Registration is required.

3D printing is becoming an essential tool in design and digital fabrication. Rhino 5 is one of the most powerful platforms for just about anything from industrial modeling and architecture to custom design, and prototype development and more.

This beginner’s class is a two-part series that will uncover the core processes behind 3D printing and introduce you to the basic concepts behind the 3D modeling tools of the Rhino software. You will learn computer-aided design (CAD) concepts, including NURBS curves, point clouds and polygon meshes. We’ll help you navigate the pitfalls of 3D design. You will be armed with approaches to 3D modeling to help you make your own small creation and turn your idea into reality. You will finish designing your 3D model and upload it to Intentional3D for printing.

Registration is required. You are registering for a two-part class that occurs August 8 and 9.

Upon completion of both parts, the library will provide a coupon that covers up to $25 for the cost of printing your 3D model. 3D print jobs will be sent to Intentional3D for printing and will be mailed to participants.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is required. Register in person or call 206-733-9125.

Exclusive screening of Mumford & Sons concert film @ Admiral Theater
Nov 18 @ 11:00 pm – 11:45 pm

On November 18th & 19th, the brand new concert film from Mumford & Sons, Live From South Africa: Dust And Thunder, will screen EXCLUSIVELY IN SEATTLE at West Seattle’s, Admiral theater. Filmed live on tour with 50,000 ecstatic fans in Pretoria, South Africa, their spectacular performance was shot in Ultra HD and is presented in stunning surround sound.

Set in the magnificent beauty of the Pretorian outback, Dust And Thunder documents the meeting of a British band in huge demand with a country extremely excited to welcome them. Having never previously toured there, the band originally intended to announce only a handful of small shows, in association with Gentlemen of the Road – 85,000 ticket sales later and they were embarking on more than just a little adventure. Overnight it had become a full-blown phenomenon and it was all hands on deck to prepare the venue for the swelling crowd. Dust And Thunder gets to the very heart of this band’s very special connection with their fans.

Directed by celebrated British director Dick Carruthers, whose acclaimed work with the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, and Oasis (the double BAFTA nominated There & Then) has placed him as one of the world’s best live cinematographers, Dust And Thunder is a truly spectacular concert film that may well go down as Mumford & Sons’ finest.

Showtimes for 18th & 19th will be 11:00 pm

Tickets are $15.00 and will be available the day of the show at our box office.

Running time 93 minutes

Mumford & Sons: “This was one of the most exciting shows we played on the Wilder Mind tour. We had just spent the preceding couple of days in a studio in Johannesburg with Baaba Maal, The Very Best and Beatenberg so we couldn’t help but get everyone out on stage to play a few of the songs we’d just written.

“It was also our first time playing in South Africa and we never could have anticipated such a welcome. This show marks a really exciting time in the journey we have taken as band. A journey fuelled by a desire to explore the world and the connection between the communities of musicians who continue to make it feel like a smaller and smaller place.”

While in South Africa, the band spent two days and nights writing and recording entirely new material with some close musical friends – Baaba Maal, Mamadou Sarr, The Very Best and Beatenberg (recordings that would later become their acclaimed Johannesburg mini-album, released globally this June) – some of which are performed in the live film with those friends, along with songs from their most recent album Wilder Mind and of course, the old favourites.

About Mumford & Sons

‘House of Queer: Housing (r)EVOLUTION’ conference @ Senior Center of West Seattle
Nov 19 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

On November 19th, from 10 am to 3 pm (registration starts at 9:30 am), LGBTQ Allyship will host its second Conference called ‘House of Queer: Housing (r)EVOLUTION’ at the Senior Center of West Seattle as an opportunity to bring the LGBTQ+ community together to discuss housing access, affordability, and safety as it pertains to the particular needs of LGBTQ+ folx.

This conference is designed to continue dialogue within LGBTQ communities who have been impacted by the housing crisis in Seattle and King County. We will explore queer and trans-led solutions to LGBTQ homelessness, gentrification and the erosion of LGBTQ safety, community and affordable housing across the generations in Seattle and King County.

Follow this Link to Register: https://secure.lglforms.com/form_engine/s/AthQ12Q4Bfnrm4AOEqanxg

Background: LGBTQ Housing Equity in Seattle

In 2015 LGBTQ Allyship completed an 1100 participant survey on LGBTQ safety. We asked our community what would increase safety in Seattle and 64% identified that access to affordable housing in safer Seattle neighborhoods would increase LGBTQ safety. The results became a mandate from our community to start adding our LGBTQ voice to housing advocacy as Seattle tries to address its housing crisis. Allyship held 3 community forums on safety and housing in late 2015 and early 2016, called ‘Conversations Across Generations’, where we asked our community to identify LGBTQ housing principles to guide Allyship’s advocacy work.

Since, Allyship has been active in housing coalitions and adding an LGBTQ equity voice in passing strong housing justice policies in Seattle. We have also led our second LGBTQ Social Justice Leadership Institute, dedicated to LGBTQ Housing Equity, of 15 emerging leaders. These leaders represent impacted LGBTQ renters in Seattle and King County who are honing their skills to advocate, using an LGBTQ equity perspective, for low-income housing and equitable development in Seattle.

Fall Planting at Lincoln Park work party
Nov 19 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Join EarthCorps and the Green Seattle Partnership as we work to make the forests and shoreline of Lincoln Park healthy! This West Seattle landmark is one of the city’s largest and most popular parks. Its 135 acres are home to ball fields, playgrounds, trails, shoreline, and forest. We must act now to preserve the forests of the park for the enjoyment of future generations. Aggresive weeds like English ivy and Himalayan blackberry are choking out native vegetation and are bringing early deaths to Lincoln’s trees. We will be planting native trees and shrubs, and need your help!

EarthCorps supplies gloves, tools, water, light refreshments and volunteer education. We will provide everything you need to know about tool use and safety, forest health, information on the park, and the importance of the work you’ll be doing. No prior experience necessary, just come ready to learn something new!
