5 Things To Do Today: Ravenna Woods, Drag N Dance, Grown Folks Saturday, Micho De Noche and more ...

SATURDAY, DEC. 3, 2011 >>>

1. According to the hype, tonight "The Space is going to be filled with so much fun and excitement you will be unable to contain it. You might even dance!" How's that for a promise? And there's good reason to believe it, with a bill that includes local favorites Not From Brooklyn, Moonjuice and headliner Ravenna Woods. Celebrated in indie circles for a percussion driven approach to the hipster folky shit that's considerably more gray and foreboding than the overpopulated genre usually allows, Ravenna Woods - while orbiting many contemporary indie clichés - offers the kind of creativity and originality that keeps live music interesting. Saturday's show at the Space is the first in a string of fundraising events for the non-profit all-ages venue, according proprietor Athena Hitson. Don't miss this show.

2. It's time again for Drag n' Dance Saturdays with host Aphelia Bottom at MetroGruv in Tacoma. You know ... the place with the forboding looking rainbow unicorn mural on the side. Should be awesome. Starts at 9 p.m. and there's a $3 cover.

3. Catch up with Grown Folk Saturdays with DJ C-Luv at Last Call Bar in Lakewood, promising old-school dance hits from the ‘70s, ‘80s and 90s.

4. If you're looking for the perfect spot to get your rock on tonight, consider dropping by The New Frontier Lounge in Tacoma's Dome District, where Mico De Noche, He Whose Ox Is Gored, The Electric Falcons and Green River Thrillers will deliver it in spades. The good times commence at 9:30 p.m.

5. If you're up for a ferry jaunt, or perhaps you already live on Vashon Island, consider getting festive with the Vashon Christmas Carolers, led by Joe Farmer tonight at Café Luna. It's an all-ages event, and there is no cover.
