Hooray! It's Friday!

1. Since July 3, participants of all ages have been bringing in their one of a kind Lego creations to Wind Up Here in Olympia. From ships to circuses and Olympic events, the structures do not exceed 18" on any side and are of various designs. The unveiling is today, and all entries will be on display in the store through August 24. Voters will choose their favorite! 121 5th Ave, Olympia, 360.943.9045.

2. Free televised dance party! Dance on live TV! It's the August 3rd episode of Dance Oly Dance with DJ PhilosoBitch playing LOCAL N.W. MUSIC ONLY. 8:00pm to 9:00pm at the TCTV studio "A" on the West Side, 440 Yauger Way SW, in the Comcast building across from Capital Medical. In case you don't know what it's about, here's a sample from a previous episode:

3. Lush Tones will play their funky, soulful, and dare I say sexy, alt rock tonight at The Backstage Bar and Grill. Fun fact: The most difficult part of the formation of this group was selecting a name. All members submitted their ideas and after voting was completed, the name Lush Tones was decided by coin toss. This was witnessed by 10 Washington State Patrol officers outside of a Starbucks at the Supermall. The deciding coin was a gold one dollar coin featuring Rutherford B. Hayes. This coin is kept in a secure location for use; should it become necessary in future decisionmaking. With Roam and Project-86, 7 p.m., Backstage Bar, 6409 6th Ave, Tacoma.

4. Sidewalk sales, dog show and parade, farmers market, music, free movie, kids events and more. Proctor Arts Festival does it right. Today and tomorrow from 10a.m.- 6p.m., N 26th and Proctor, Tacoma

5. Andy Geertsen founder of Andyinoly Productions, presents jazz music moguls Crack Sabbath. Smooth, powerful, emotional, these are just a few words that come to mind when listening to this unique band. Says Geertsen, "Crack Sabbath is comprised of some of the best well established jazz musicians in Seattle ... a song will seamlessly go from a flawlessly flowing jazz tune into a full blown heavy metal grind ... see them once and you're hooked." 9 p.m. Olympia Ballroom, 116 Legion Way SE
