BushwickUseFurther proof that The Bushwick Book Club is not your run-of-the-mill book club: Not only do its members write and perform songs about the books they read; they also veer far (far) beyond, say, The Help. In this performance, for example, they veer all the way back to the Bible, presenting original music inspired by some of the most popular stories from the Old Testament. Supported by the Seattle Jazz Composers Ensemble and members of Captain Smartypants and Sensible Shoes, songwriters including Lisa Koch, Bucket of Honey, Wes Weddell, Beth Fleenor, Spekulation, Tai Shan, Amanda Sue Winterhalter, Vince Martinez and Tamara Power Drutis celebrate one of the most-read books of all time. Presented by the Bushwick Book Club Seattle with Seattle Jazz Composers Ensemble and members of Captain Smartypants and Sensible Shoes.
Advance tickets are $15 at www.strangertickets.com; $20 at the door. Downstairs at Town Hall; enter on Seneca Street.
