TUESDAY, MAY 3, 2011 >>>

1. Modern day Riot grrrl thrashers Lust-Cats Of The Gutters bring their danceable beats to Northern at 8 p.m. Morgan & The Organ Donors, Night Of Joy and Sara Century make this all-ages show damn near epic.

2. For those green-thumb-challenged folk who haven't quite got growing seasons down, the 6th Ave Farmers Market opens today at 3:30 p.m. Learn to grow a secret garden of your own and see it blossom. Not a gardener? Well then just visit the world's most productive gardener, the farmer, and pick up a bunch of their "fruits of labor" until 7 p.m. at Sixth and Pine.

3. Gleaning - the individual right to collect what is left on the ground when the harvest is finished - has support in Pierce County. In fact, the Pierce County Gleaning Project gathers at 6 p.m. inside King's Books to bond over books and documentaries while discussing issues around gleaning. No doubt it will be good, glean fun.  

4. The University of Washington-Tacoma hosts a free screening of Walk Right In: The Story of Yale Summer High School at 7 p.m. inside Carwein Auditorium. Through interviews with its participants - 40 years later - the film captures the stories behind the experimental education that brought underprivileged kids from across the nation to the Yale Divinity School during the 1960s.

5. The second biggest story next to Osama bin Laden's death is, of course, the return of Tuesday night Goldfish Races at the Harmon Tap Room. Beginning at 8 p.m., and handled with extreme care, the little buggers will race for the cup while folks pound beers and cheer. Check out photos of past Harmon Tap Room Goldfish Races here.
