Warm up with music and art in downtown Kent

By Conner Howard | Staff writer Published:

Dig out your winter coats, folks -- even the cold won't keep you inside this weekend. Downtown Kent is giving you music and fine art three nights in a row.

EP Debut

Drew Lammert is a Kent musician who goes by the stage name Past Tense Verb, a electronic folk act influenced by Radiohead, Postal Service, Arcade Fire and more. The Stone Tavern at 110 E. Main St. in Kent is hosting the release of Past Tense Verb's debut winter-themed EP "Heat Loss" at 9 tonight.

Past Tense Verb will be joined by special guest act Baby Monster.

An Evening Of Watercolor

The third annual "Sundays @ One" watercolor painting exhibition is set for 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday at the North Water Street Gallery at 257 N. Water St. in Kent.

Presented by Standing Rock Cultural Arts, the exhibition will feature work by Henry Walker, Claire Culleton, Maureen Kelly, Tom Auld, Scott White, Liz Gulaian and Vicki Bocchiccio.

Gallery hours are from 1 to 5 p.m. Thursday to Saturday. "Sundays @ One" comes just in time for Kent's annual "Festival of Lights."

Kent band Rio Neon is throwing a CD release party at the Kent Stage starting at 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

Come enjoy the music free of charge. The band is only asking for donations to support the Kent Stage. Read the full story here in Weekender for more details.
