1. Giving boaters and anglers an opportunity to see and touch, compare prices and features, and talk with experts about the newest technological advancements in boats and motors and fishing gear holds great appeal and utility in the Puget Sound area. Just before boat season begins, the Puget Sound Boat Show will showcase 2015 models and closeout models offered by more than 20 area dealers, boating accessories and fishing gear and more than two dozen hours of how-to seminars through Sunday, opening at 11 a.m. in the Tacoma Dome. Shop and compare a selection of boats - ranging from kayaks and inflatables, aluminum models popular with fishermen, fiberglass sport boats and offshore models offering luxury and durability.

2. The quarterly Ancient Victorys Open Mike brings back some of the 3,000 acoustic music performers from open mikes run by Chris Lunn in this state and California from the 1965 through 1990 to the Antique Sandwich Co. at 7 p.m.

3. Based on one audience suggestion, The Improvised Shakespeare Co. will create a fully improvised Shakespearean masterpiece at 7:30 p.m. in the Washington Center. Each of the players has brushed up on his "thee's" and "thou's" to bring you an evening of off-the-cuff comedy using the language and themes of William Shakespeare. All of the dialogue is said for the first time, the characters are created as you watch, and if ever you're wondering where the story is going ... so are the actors.

4. Having worked with everyone from 2Pac to Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre (his half-brother), Warren G is a vital voice of not only reality rap and party music, but he has always been a conscientious and active voice in community driven issues. Long Beach is in the house for a 8 p.m. show with Grynch, Wanz at Crytical in Jazzbones. Sing Nate Dogg's (RIP) hooks, y'all! 

5. More so than many of the other bands striving to capture the feeling of music in the '90s, pop weirdos Dead Larry feel like they emerged straight from the time capsule. It's remarkable how uncanny their resemblance is to the pop eccentrics like They Might Be Giants, Ben Folds Five, the Lemonheads and Crash Test Dummies. Dead Larry is unabashedly upbeat music that finds their footing in piano pop, with diversions into white-boy-funk, and stoned psychedelic explorations. Catch the band with Birger Wink, Larry Wish and American Forrest at 8 p.m. in Deadbeat Olympia record store.
