1. Hear (and see) classically-trained violinists Greta, Willow and Solana. See (and hear) the dancing of Greta, Willow and Solana. See sisters Greta, Willow and Solana present a Celtic variety show at no cost to you. Catch The Gothard Sisters at noon at Puyallup's Pioneer Park.

2. Catch the Fun Addicts at Skansie Brothers Park tonight at 6:30 p.m., part of the Gig Harbor Summer Sounds at Skansie Park series.

3. Yes, 5 Things To Do Today is pounding home the 25 New Faces of Independent Film at The Grand Cinema. The best rising talent in the film industry - actors, writers, directors and animators - can be seen in Tacoma's art house. Among the magic today is a 7 p.m. screening of the Spike Lee-produced Manos Sucias, the story of young, black Colombian men and their attempt to break free from the downtrodden and war-torn country and find peace in another place featuring young talented actors.

4. Art Spiegelman has almost single-handedly brought comic books out of the toy closet and onto literature shelves winning the Pulitzer Prize in 1992 for his masterful graphic novel, Maus I: A Survivor's Tale: My Father Bleeds History - one of the hardest hitting graphic novels ever written. Spiegelman wrote Maus as a biography of his father, Vladek Spiegelman, and his Holocaustexperiences through very straightforward but well drawn and written metaphor. The Banned Book Club will discuss the graphic novel at 7 p.m. inside Doyle's Public House.

5. You are getting sleepy, v-e-r-y sleepy. Now, go see the hypnotist show at 8 p.m. inside the Red Wind Casino. Whether a skeptic or believer, the show will be sure to entertain with its comedy, rock and roll and outrageous hypnosis, like people sneezing and having orgasms(!) when Ron Stubbs, the man behind the magic, utters the word "pepper."
