FRIDAY, FEB. 3, 2012 >>>

1. In the tradition of Django Reinhardt, Hot Club Sandwich has captured the essence of string swing bands from the early 20th century and has brought it to contemporary audiences who long for the organic sound of this obscure genre of music. Formed 10 years ago during a chance meeting on a front porch in Olympia, the gypsy jazz band's complex arrangements and musical harmonies blend with flawless precision. The band returns, for the millionth time, to Olympia's Traditions Café for an 8 p.m. show.

2. The Jackie Stephen Rogers All Star Jam Fundraiser featuring artists from Kashmir, Chrome Molly, Reloaded, SubViinyl Jukebox, Jerry Miller Band, Steve Cox, O'Dark 30, Kickstart, Tatoosh, Palmer Junction and Classic Case begins at 5 p.m. inside Stonegate Pizza.

3. Harlequin productions urges the ladies to, "Dress up gorgeous or come as you are, but grab your girlfriends, turn off the tube and treat yourself to something special! Gather in our swanky lobby with friends you may or may not know from 7:00 to 7:30 and enjoy complimentary champagne and chocolate." Afterward, the main attraction to Harlequin's "Ladies Night," will be a staging of Conor McPherson's The Seafarer - where thefirst 40 minutes offers old Irish alcoholics wailing abuse at each other. Oh my. We should note that Weekly Volcano theater critic Christian Carvajal recommends the show.

4. Soul Shop open mic talent showcase with poetry and music, hosted by 6 Deep the Messenger, kicks off at 7:30 p.m. inside the Native Quest Native American Cultural Center in downtown Tacoma.

5. The Tacoma-based band Voxxy Vallejo joins Blues Redemption for at 7:30 p.m. show at Jazzbones. Lead vocalist Sherrie Voxx Minter, who many call the "Janis Joplin of Tacoma," pours her emotions through her blues soul and rock & roll.

PLUS: Love Panel & Dessert Party, The Phantom Tollbooth, Wish You Were Here reception, Tacomapocalypse II, Styx and other events today in our Weekend Hustle.
