Parties, parties everywhere - but whatever do you wear?

Mark Lindquist Fundraiser

Tonight, Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist - who was appointed to the position after Gerry Horne retired last year - will kick off his first bid for official election with what we can only expect to be a star-studded "kick off party" - which in the business of politics, is code for warm and fuzzy fundraising event. Lindquist promises the event will feature "The Beatniks, an awesome band, musical guest stars to be announced, beer, wine, food, and great people."

In what may be the culmination of one of the worst kept secrets in the history of prosecutorial campaign kick off parties, the special musical guests will include R.E.M's Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey of the Young Fresh Fellows and Minus 5. Saturday, June 5, 7 p.m., Heidelberg Brewery Warehouse, 2210 S. C St., Tacoma, Marklindquist.org – Michael Swan

Neddy Artist Fellowship

The Neddy Artist Fellowship exhibition opens tonight at the Tacoma Art Museum.

So what is the Neddy? From the TAM Web site: "The Neddy Artist Fellowship was established in 1996 as memorial to Robert E. (Ned) Behnke (1948 - 1989) to recognize his contributions to the Northwest artistic community. The two $15,000 Fellowships are awarded annually to Northwest artists who demonstrate artistic excellence, innovation, unique vision, and a passionate commitment to their art and community."

This year's nominees in painting are Ken Kelly, Margie Livingston, Matthew Offenbacher and Joey Veltkamp. The nominees for glass are Sabrina Knowles and Jenny Pohlman, Dante Marioni, Richard Marquis and Marvin Oliver. Offenbacher and Veltkamp are probably the most well-known of the painters, while Marioni is the glass artist most Tacomans are likely to be familiar with.

The exhibition will begin with a free opening celebration from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., followed by a party at Hotel Murano, where you can enjoy a cocktail, mingle with the artists and admire the hotel's art collection. Saturday, June 5, 6:30- p.m., no cover,
Tacoma Art Museum, 1701 Pacific Avenue, Tacoma, 253.272.4258 – Alec Clayton
