1. Ten years ago DJ Broam, aka Oliver Dorris, cut his teeth spinnin' vinyl at the Monsoon Room. Shoved in the corner by the door, underneath the glass bamboo light fixture he created, Broam filled the Polynesian room with tunes as Kansas and Laura poured cocktails. Tonight, at the same location, Broam will spin at the 1022 South J's summer patio party, which kicks off at 4 p.m.

2. South Australian artist Brenden Scott French is the visiting artist in the Museum of Glass Hot Shop through Sunday. The Australian glass artist's kilnformed sculptures and wall pieces are carefully layered and assembled to develop pattern and form with this physical process reflecting our proclivity to turn stories of personal and social history into grand, national narratives. French's residency is in concert with the exhibition "Links: Australian Glass and the Pacific Northwest" currently on view.

3. Headed by Barry and Renee Watson, founders and previous owners of Tacoma staple the Rosewood Cafe, Pint Defiance is a must visit for any lover of the hops. Pint Defiance seamlessly marries the concept of craft beer retail space with a pub. The walls are lined with coolers neatly displaying a unique collection of canned and bottled brews by region. From 5-7 p.m. Pint Defiance hosts Seattle's Naked City Brewing for beer tasting, swag and chats with NCB's owners Don and Don.

4. Trained in opera, and having broken onto the national music scene singing jazz as featured vocalist for Grammy-winning trumpeter Chris Botti, Jeanne Jolly left North Carolina on a national tour, performing her Appalachian-influenced country music, including at 7 p.m. in Olympia's Slyvester Park.

5. Emily Beanblossom was once known as the spirited lead singer of the psych-punk Olympia band Christmas. Today, she's performing under the moniker Ruby Fray out of Austin, Texas, creating atmospheric melodies across many genres. Catch Ruby Fray at 9 p.m. as she joins Sick Sad World, Clayface and IBN UBO at Le Voyeur.
