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:

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.

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

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.

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.

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

Multi-platinum selling Mumford & Sons (Ted Dwane, Ben Lovett, Winston Marshall and Marcus Mumford) were formed in 2007 and have released three studio albums to date, the last two of which debuted at #1 in the UK and the US. Their latest recordings, the mini-album “Johannesburg”, were released in June this year. Throughout the band’s career (so far), they have sold nearly 10 million albums and won Grammy awards, BRITs, Billboard Music Awards, ARIAs, Q, Echo, Juno and Ivor Novello awards, and been nominated or shortlisted for multiple others.

‘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.

Seattle Writes: How to Create a Productive Writing Group @ Southwest Library
Nov 19 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

At the Southwest Library, Learn best practices for forming and maintaining a productive writing group, and then network with writers to get one started.

Writers’ groups have a dual reputation: some writers love and depend on them. Some claim they’re the ninth ring in Dante’s “Inferno.” For those who’ve never been part of a group, it can feel daunting to even try to find one to join.

In reality, writer’s groups can serve as great communities for writers, offering support, learning opportunities and feedback to those who work so solitarily, and who wonder if what they’re working on is any good, or even matters.

Come learn about the different approaches and basics of writing groups, and meet other writers in the community who are interested in creating productive and successful writers’ groups.

Jennie Shortridge is the bestselling author of five novels, including “Love Water Memory” and “When She Flew,” and is an avid writing teacher. She has been a member of several writers’ groups over the past 20 years, and has much to share about what makes a group work, and what doesn’t. Learn more about her on her website.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required for this writing class, but seating is limited. Seating will be on a first come, first seated basis. Doors to the meeting room will open 30 minutes prior to the start of the class. We’ll try our best to make room for all interested writers, but students may be turned away if the room is filled to capacity. Due to the fire code, we cannot exceed the maximum capacity for our rooms.

Please bring a pen/pencil and paper or fully-charged laptop to each class.

Accommodation requests may be made with seven days advanced notice to leap@spl.org or (206) 615-1380 (v/tty).

Seattle Writes supports local writers through programs, workshops, write-ins, and by providing spaces to work throughout the city.

Space is limited at library events. Please come early to make sure you get a seat. Due to the fire code, we can’t exceed the maximum capacity for our rooms.
