SATURDAY, FEB. 11, 2012 >>>

1. It's another huge night in live music for the South Sound. Legendary Bay-area hip-hopper Too $hort will be in Olympia at the Royal Lounge, while Olympia's own Calvin Johnson will trek north to Tacoma  with his band the Hive Dwellers for a show at The Space. The Weekly Volcano's comprehensive live local music listings have all the answers you need.

2. Tacoma's GLBT Book Club meets today at Tully's Coffee downtown on Broadway to discuss Geography Club by Brent Hartinger. The Volcano's Jenni Prange Boran recently profiled the GLBT Book Club and its organizer Matt Lemanski.

3. Tacoma Metal Arts Center offers the bold and the curious a chance to learn "electroforming in copper," which is probably just about as awesome as it sounds. According to hype, "Electroforming is an exciting technique which allows you to 'grow' copper over almost any form. You will learn how to use this process to create a shell of copper over things like glass, wax carvings and organic materials (seed pods, dried flowers, etc) to name a few. Electroforming can be used to create complex hollow forms in copper for sculpture or jewelry." This is a two-session class that kicks off today and concludes next Saturday, Feb. 18. Cost is $135 plus $15 materials fee, and instruction is provided by Amy Reeves.

4. Prior to a Valentine's Day performance in Tacoma with T-Town's Gritty City Sirens, Olympia's own Tush burlesque troupe will take to the Capitol Theater. As event hype points out, Tush will be joined by Seattle's own Paris Original, Olympia's Wednesday du Monde, and the music of Portland's Autry. Doors open at 8 p.m., show starts at 9 p.m., and it'll cost you $10-$15.

5. At Jazzbones, it'll be a night of hip-hop featuring Ra Scion, The Breaklites, City Hall, Josh Rizeberg, DJ Reign and DJ Minus. Show starts at 8 p.m.
