(3/31-4/2) Seattle isn’t the only place to catch a great show; this weekend, get out of the city and head north to Everett’s annual Fisherman’s Village Music Festival, an all-ages event hosted by the Everett Music Initiative. Check out over fifty local bands from afternoon to night at a number of downtown Everett venues like Tony V’s Garage, Everett Performing Arts Center, Black Lab Gallery and The Anchor. The lineup this year includes acts like Jenn Champion, Fruit Juice and Everett’s own Kevin Murphy of The Moondoggies. All venues are first come, first served, so be sure to get there early if there’s an act you can’t miss. Times and prices vary. Downtown Everett, thefishermansvillage.com

Must Fight Back 
Free Krav Maga Seattle Self-Defense Class 
(4/1) On March 5th, Kelly Herron was brutally attacked by a man in a restroom at Golden Gardens Park, where she was training for a marathon. Using skills she had learned three weeks earlier at a self-defense class, she escaped and trapped her assailant in the bathroom. This Saturday, in recognition of April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Seattle's Krav Maga (named for the official self defense and combat system of the Israeli Defense Forces) will hold its third annual Women’s Empowerment Seminar, a free, three-hour session where women fourteen-and-up will learn skills like the ones Herron used to defend herself against her attacker. 1-4 p.m., free.
