With the Very Imaginary Karaoke Holiday Party a week away (Friday, December 8th), the only thing we can do to handle the overwhelming anticipation is fill up the calendar with fun things to do:

Friday, 12/1: The Small Change/ Shake Some Action/ The Four Colour Process {Jules Mae} Shake Some Action is the moniker for James Hall, former frontman for the Jeunes, a Seattle-based power-pop quartet who disbanded over a year ago, to the dismay of fans… especially because so many of the Jeunes’ great songs had never been recorded and where therefore lost forever. But fret no more: Shake Some Action have just recorded a full-length album that contains many of the lost Jeunes gems, plus a slew of new tunes that explode with Hall’s Husker Du vocal stylings and 60’s pop sensibilities. Three Imaginary Girls will be sponsoring their CD release show on December 23rd {ahem, Liz’s birthday party and our annual Orphan Christmas show to benefit Treehouse for Kids}, but catch them at the coolest South-end rock show venue we know this Friday for a rollicking good time.

Saturday, 12/2: Urban Craft Uprising {Seattle Center Exhibition Hall} Spend the day picking up that special something for those special some ones on your list in the most indie of ways at the Urban Craft Uprising. There will be over 100 vendors with their handmade and custom wares with fun activities like a fashion show and a free raffle with hourly drawings. Doors open at 11a and the first 100 people there get a goodie bag of cool swag!

Sunday, 12/3: Record, CD, DVD, Poster Swap {S.S. Marie Antoinette} Is there anything better than finding the perfect, one-of-a-kind Queen Bee purse or fancy ZuZuPop skirt at a craft uprising? Perhaps the only thing that comes close is finding an out of print 7” record you’ve had on your wishlist since your sophomore year or a bootleg of a 1984 REM show? Well, we don’t know if this Sunday’s record swap is going to have stuff like that, but there’s probably going to be some cool screenprinted posters, pretty colored vinyl and some interesting things to round out your (or that special someone’s) collection.

Thursday, 12/7: The Forgotten Works 30 Day Challenge {OK Hotel} Are you still panicking about the holidays? Not sure what to get your friend that doesn’t need indie dry goods or an out of print record (which is a bit unfathomable)? The Forgotten Works 30 Day Challenge offers one stop shopping without having to set foot inside a Walmart. It’s a simple and brilliant premise: 50 local artists are chosen to create 30 pieces of art in 30 days. Each canvas is 8″x10″ and is sold for $40 each. Opening night is during the first Thursday art walk. If you want the good stuff, get there early.

4, 3, 2, 1… earth below me!
