MONDAY, JULY 14 2014 >>>

1. Seth Freeman has played the guitar since the age of 4. He has spent time in both the city and the mountains of Arkansas, in the heart of the South in a large, and very musical, family.  When you hear Freeman play guitar, you quickly realize these are not the same old licks. At 23, he opened for Jonny Lang, Wes Jeans, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Damon Fowler and Devon Allman. Today, he spends most of his time on the road, gigging with Chris Duarte, Wes Jeans, Damon Fowler, Michael Burks, Lance Lopez and Jeff Lang, when not fronting his own band, which brings its driving blues, Ozark Mountain bluegrass and sweet tender ballads to The Swiss for the second time this year, this time for Monday Night Blues at 8 p.m.

2. When you read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, does the book provide a secret passageway to Narnia? Flipping through Chitty Chitty Bang Bang does it frustrate you the car can't fly? Pop-up books are endlessly fascinating. Being able to conjure up a three-dimensional world just by pulling a tab never gets old. Also cool are handmade bookbindings where a simple blank journal can become an elaborately illustrated storybook complete with 19th century photographs, old quilts, cereal boxes and vintage record albums. In conjunction with The Puget Sound Book Artists "4th Annual Member's Exhibition," the group presents the panel discussion "The Artist's Vision: From Idea to Completion." From 5:30-7:30 p.m. in Collins Memorial Library, Suzanne Moore, distinguished calligrapher and book artist, will ask Pat Chupa, Lucia Harrison, Mari Gower and MalPina Chan to explain their complete artistic process.

3. This past weekend Tacoma's gay community hits the street and celebrated its identity. But thanks to the The Grand Cinema, some of that out-and-proud celebration will take place indoors. The Tacoma Pride Film Series kicks off today at 2 and 7 p.m. with Lilting, the story of a mother's attempt to understand her son after his untimely death. Her world is suddenly disrupted by the presence of his lover. Together, they attempt to overcome their grief while struggling with not sharing a language.

4. L.A. dark psych-country band The Abigails will perform their stoney slow jams off their new album, Tundra, at 9 p.m. in The New Frontier Lounge. Garage rock duo Pecos opens.

5. Improvisational rock group Ground Score Willie will take you on an "unpredictable ride through danceable grooves, dirty riffs, ambient sweetness, lyrical gems, sparkling harmonies, and daring loop-a-whirls that may result in motion sickness, possibly dry heaves (although we take no responsibility as we DID warn you not to drink the whole bottle)" at 10 p.m. in Le Voyeur.
