1. Enrique Iglesias and Marc Anthony have their place in society ... and that place is at the bottom of a deep lake with concrete shoes tied to their feet. If you want to hear some real, authentic Latin-American music, pop into Schneebeck Concert Hall tonight to see Eddie Palmieri, one of the influential pianists and founding fathers of Latin jazz. Hailing from Puerto Rico, Palmieri has had a career spanning five decades that's included recording projects with legendary percussionist Tito Puente and other salsa greats. Known for his richly textured arrangements and intense percussive style, Palmieri (along with renowned percussionist Jose Madera and the University of Puget Sound Jazz Band) will be heating up the stage. 7:30 p.m., $5-$11, Schneebeck Concert Hall, 1500 N. Warner, Tacoma, 253.879.3100

2. Taller-than-average Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist makes his way back to King's Books for his annual Signed Books and Wine Auction, put on by People for Prosecutor Mark Lindquist. The shindig goes down from 5-7 p.m. and features wines and signed books from Maria Semple, Garth Stein, Molly Ringwald, Bret Easton Ellis, Ann Rule and, of course, Lindquist. 5-7 p.m., $25 suggested donation, King's Books, 218 St. Helens Ave., Tacoma, 253.272.8801

3. Interested in stopping Coal Export facilities in Tacoma and our state? Attend the coal-scoping workshop tonight at the University of Puget Sound.

Warner, 253.879.3100

4. The Tacoma Art Museum will be busier than street sweepers cleaning up candy wrappers. First, it's the weekly Thursdays Ignite night at TAM, which means chillin' with drinks and crafts. Second, The Bead Factory will be in the house leading a Dia de los Muertos bracelet workshop ($20-$30) at 6 p.m. Last, the Tacoma Arts Commission launches Art at Work Month with a party that includes free apps, artists butt slaps and the presentation of the prestigious AMOCAT Awards. 6-8:30 p.m., Tacoma Art Museum, 1701 Pacific Ave., Tacoma, 253.272.4258

5. Chinese acrobatics and martial arts have become a big deal onstage, from Cirque du Soleil shows to casino revues. Chi of Shaolin: The Tale of the Dragon features the Imperial Acrobats of China, a group formed by Las Vegas producer (and onetime acrobat) Yan Yan Shao. The show utilizes Gung Fu and Wushu martial arts, acrobatics, dance and music to tell a story. 7:30 p.m., $19-$56, Washington Center, 512 Washington St., Olympia, 360.753.8586
