5 Things To Do Today: Pecha Kucha, Tacoma Cult Movie Club, Joe Baque Trio, Island Trybe ...

Ramen: Youth are forced to boil it well after graduation.

MONDAY, FEB. 27, 2012 >>>

The system that we've designed for students to pay for college is out of whack. Many college students emerge from their schooling these days with thousands and thousands of dollars in debt, without the job prospects to justify it. According to promotion for tonight's lecture from 7-9 p.m. at The Evergreen State College's Seminar Building 2 with Professor of Economics at Seattle University and Seattle Central Community College Kshama Sawant, "Student debt has exploded in the US and globally, with the average college senior graduating with more than $25,000 in student loans." Sawant will discuss this alarming statistic as well as the low wage job prospects and youth unemployment rate as part of a presentation titled, "The Student Debt Explosion: The New Indentured Servitude?"

The Olympia Monthly Community Arts Roundtable will host a Pecha Kucha in which presenters share 20 slides - 20 seconds each slide - centered on an arts-related topic. The event begins at 6 p.m. inside the Olympia Timberland Library.

The Tacoma Cult Movie Club hosts a night of free movies, shorts, trailers and wackiness under the theme "Before They Had Oscars: You Gotta Start Somewhere" at 7 p.m. inside The Acme Tavern.

3RP, Island Trybe, PO Boxx, J-Lei and D'Rocc perform at 8 p.m. inside Hell's Kitchen in Tacoma.

Vocalist Dennis Hastings joins The Joe Baque Trio for a night of jazz beginning at 9:30 p.m. inside the Waterstreet Café in downtown Olympia.
