1. Local Southern rockers SweetKiss Momma has been asked by their European press agency and tour company Teenage Head Music to produce a video for the song "Dirty Uncle Deezer." The band grabbed Tacoma super videographer Kris Crews and will shoot the video at 8 p.m. in The New Frontier Lounge. Of course, concert videos are cooler with a crowd laughing, cheering and drinking. If laughing, cheering and drinking isn't enticing enough, SweetKiss Momma will be raffling off two spots on their guest list to Friday's Watershed Festival, a show at the Gorge that sold out in 20 minutes. Here is the Facebook event for tonight's video party.

2. A sensorial stunner that transcends space and time, Manakamana is a ride that showcases the awesome grandeur of nature and the contradictions of contemporary Nepalese life. Via cable car, the film takes us up and down one of the vast valleys of Trisuli in the Gorkha district of Nepal, where the famous Manakamana Temple attracts pilgrims and tourists from the world over. These rides unfold in real-time, revealing a subtle interplay among passengers and landscape ... at 1:35 and 6:40 p.m. in The Grand Cinema.

3. Sinatra-esque crooner Chris Anderson will take to the outdoors, hitting all the notes and making the ladies swoon in the process as part of Gig Harbor's Summer Sounds series from 7-8:30 p.m. at Skansie Brothers Park. Anderson has repeatedly proven to offer a throwback good time.

4. Stephen Steinbrink's music is pristinely recorded, gorgeously melancholy folk-pop. Immaculate harmonies and chiming guitars bridge the gaps between Beatles-esque pop, CSNY's tuneful folk and the Shins' serenely modern drift. There's a stately reserve to the music of Stephen Steinbrink that lends it a classic feeling, and the feeling of an instant classic. Catch him with Whales Wailing and Johanna Warren at 8 p.m. in Northern.

5. Comrades could just as easily be called adventurers as opposed to a band. Since forming in 2009, the trio - with married couple Joe and Laura McElroy at their core - have traversed North America countless times, exploring many off the beaten path locales and playing their unique brand of mostly instrumental music for anyone willing to listen, including an all-ages 8 p.m. show at Le Voyeur.
