1. They say never talk politics at the bar. The Hub in Tacoma encourages it. With the strange political climate and the outcome of recent primaries, there is bound to be some interesting conversations. Drinking Liberally is an informal gathering of like-minded left-leaners and true hardcore lefties who want to trade ideas, get more involved, to rant, or just share each others company. 7 p.m. 203 Tacoma Avenue South, 253.683.4606

2.  David Deacon-Joyner is Professor and Director of Jazz studies at Pacific Lutheran University. He has performed with jazz artists such as Bobby Shew, Marvin Stamm, Marc Johnson, Ed Soph, and others. Dr. Deacon-Joyner is a professional vocalist in both studio and live settings, and is a composer and arranger. He currently arranges big band charts for Jeff Coffin, saxophonist with Bela Flect and the Flecktones and the Jeff Coffin Mu'tet, published by UNC Press. Free coffee. Bring chairs or a blanket and snacks. 7 p.m. Mary Baker Russell Music Center Amphitheater, PLU Campus, 8th Avenue Court S & Wheeler Street S, Tacoma. 

3. KryBoys, who picked up an award for best cover band for Weekly Voclano's "Best of Tacoma 2012," are getting their rock on at Jazzbones tonight. Kry is the #1 cover band in the Seattle/Tacoma area. They have the energy, the talent and ability to deliver all of your favorite songs the way music should be ... LIVE! It's like going to a big time rock show where you know every song. 9 p.m. 2803 6th Ave, Tacoma.
