5 Things To Do Today: Adult ballet class, Christmas music, folk tunes and roots reggae

By Volcano Staff on November 1, 2010

MONDAY, NOV. 1, 2010 >>>

1. Are you looking for a place to satisfy your unquenchable desire to dance? Check out the open adult ballet class at 7:15 p.m. inside the Urban Grace Church. It's pay what you can. It's also dance what you can.

2. Halloween is dead. People are now dragging out the Christmas lights and hanging mistletoe. Rehashings of Christmas standards by the likes of Mathis, Streisand, Jerry Vale - even that damn "Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer" - will soon fill ever second of our lives. Don't fight it. The Northwest Repertory Singers will rehearse their Christmas concert at 7 p.m. inside the Mason United Methodist Church. Surely, these songs will make us see the error of our Scrooge-y ways! At the very least, it will drive us to the same point of insanity, where it's always 1955 and sugarplums not only dance, but hold 9-to-5 jobs and vote (Republican, natch).

3. Folk music rules at the Mandolin Café tonight. First Garret Gue fills the Tacoma cafe with progressive folk from 7-8 p.m. Then, Pete Mason follows with a little more down-tempo at 8 p.m.

4. The Greta Jane Quartet will fill the Royal Lounge in Olympia with jazz beginning at 8 p.m.

5. DJ Jason Diamond spins roots reggae during Rebel Monday/Industry Night at O'Malley's Irish Pub beginning at 9 p.m.
