Never mind these fickle, pre-summer clouds. This week, VANGUARD Seattle has you covered with events to fit every mood. On Tuesday, check out the musical chops of acclaimed film director John Carpenter at the Paramount Theatre. After that, take in some informative and hilarious literature at a town hall event featuring the acclaimed non-fiction science writer Mary Roach. Thursday and Friday have all your cinematic needs covered, beginning with The Films of Kilhal Joseph at the Frye Art Museum. If that’s not your speed, The Northwest Film Forum will host three weekend screenings of Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made. Finally, usher in the summer starting on Friday with the Fremont Solstice festival, which reaches its crescendo on Saturday at the now legendary Fremont Solstice Parade. This is a week for eschewing hate and celebrating love! It’s time to Get out! Seattle.
