1. Duchess of Downtown Tours, the folks behind the Tacoma Art Bus, has been driving art enthusiasts around Tacoma for four years! Yes, tonight is the fourth anniversary of the Art Bus. The rumor is this tour will be extra special with games prizes, a celebrity tour guide, VIP swag bags, Puget Sound Pizza, anniversary wine and more as the bus visits 253 Collective, Mandelin's Consignment, Brick House Gallery, Spaceworks Tacoma, Throwing Mud Gallery, PJ Hummel Warehouse and Rampart. The bus leaves at 6 p.m. in front of the Tacoma Art Museum. Click tacomaartbus.com for details.

Normally, you might not consider spending the Third Thursday Art Walk in South Tacoma, but the Asia Pacific Cultural Center has cooked up a special "somtum somtum" for you: A Meet the Artist reception for Kathy Thurston followed by a screening of Somtum (a.k.a. Muay Thai Giant). The former promises a chance to get up close and personal with Thurston, a Gig Harbor artist who is a student of Gongbi, Chinese detail painting. The antithesis to this is Somtum, a martial arts-comedy from Thailand. APCC will also be serving an unnamed Thai specialty to patrons. The reception begins at 4 p.m. with the film at 7.

3. The information age has a sound. Revolutionary technology meets a revolutionary message in Papadosio. Melding progressive rock with psychedelia, folk with electronica, and dance music with jam, the quintet has amassed a dedicated following of thousands of likeminded individuals sowing the seeds of unity and spreading the sounds of exaltation. exciting, huh? Catch the band at 8 p.m. in The Olympia Ballroom.

4. Maurice The Fish Records Music Mash-Up Series continues at all-ages venue Louie G's Pizza with Strangely Alright, Mr. Von and Devil On A Leash at 8 p.m. 

5. Every third Thursday El Protrero packs them in for live hip-hop, rap and DJs. At 9 p.m., everybody and their momma will hit the stage, including Shawn Thunderchief Lloyd, Peeriodic Table, Sic Ill, Golden Brown Entertainment (Neno Brown and Sal Rivera), Cole Z and Tom Hutcha with DJ Eddie Monster on the turntables.
