Tula’s Restaurant, 8:30pm
Marc Cary Trio

This energizing pianist’s star is hotly on the rise. He leads a snarky trio through a flurry of elastic jazz by way of a studied love of hip-hop and deep digressions into adventurous territory. $15 general / $13 discount CALL 206-443-4221 FOR RESERVATIONS

Triple Door, 7pm & 9:30pm
Scott Amendola Band
