    Squirrel Flower, Alexalone, Little Mazarn

    The emotionally and environmentally charged songwriting project of Chicago-based Ella Williams, Squirrel Flower released Tomorrow’s Fire late last year. Williams’ third LP leaps headlong into loud, looping rock but pays homage to her indie “prairie-pop” beginnings in the Iowa DIY scene. Tuesday’s lineup brings both ends of that spectrum into focus, with Austin-based folk group Little Mazarn and shoegaze soundscapists alexalone setting the tone for a night of fuzzy guitar, angelic harmonies, and big feelings. – Bridget Kingston

So too can your crafty kiddos be inspired by Basquiat himself at this library event, where supplies are provided to make a self-portrait and cardboard crown in the artist’s signature style.

      Thin Spaces: Seeking Nature’s Ethereal Conduits

      This three-person show of visual art at the venerable Dougherty Arts Center suggests ways in which “the natural world can serve as a conduit to a deeper understanding of the ethereal,” divulging liminal places where material and spirit intertwine. Local and simultaneously beyond locale, the layered oil abstractions of Rebecca Bennett, the stunningly manipulated photography of Leslie Kell, and Elena Lipkowski’s digital collages embellished with hand-stitched embroidery shift the gallery’s walls toward wonder and may open your doors of perception into a realm that’s downright seelie. Bonus: Meet the artists there tonight, 7-9pm. – Wayne Alan Brenner
