All the happenings at Cairo this weekend!

Cairo's got a jam-packed weekend on tap for you all, starting with a show tonight featuring fizzy Seattle/Olympia rippers Naomi Punk, and esteemed Oly players American Vacuum and Gun Outfit. I'm just a little excited about this show, as you can see from these two articles (1,2). 8 PM tonight, all-ages, $5 at the door.

Tomorrow night, the good times continue with a concert whose awesome roster includes Charles Leo Gebhardt IV, Lindseys, and So Pitted (a new-ish group featuring members of SPURM and the Fabulous Downey Brothers). The fun starts at 8 PM, with the usual $5 entry and all-ages open-door policy.

Finally, on Sunday, Cairo is hosting a one-of-a-kind event: "The Mixtape Reading Series." While there won't be any actual cassette tapes played, shared, or sold, nine authors will be reading from their work, with the afternoon's guests divided into a "Side A" and "Side B." The event starts at 2 PM Sunday and will include:

Brandon Scott Gorrell
Tom DeBeauchamp
Jamey Braden (late of Wet Paint DMM)
Frances Dinger
Tara Atkinson
Ben Blum
Summer Robinson
Willie Fitzgerald
Matt Nelson

We hope to see you at one or all of these events!
