Owner Steve Olson added Parlor Live to the Parlor complex in 2008 as a way to bring big city-caliber evening entertainment to suburban Bellevue. National comedians take the stage in a wide, shallow room with seating that wraps around three sides of the action as colored shapes produced by a sophisticated lighting system dance across the walls. A globally inspired menu introduces the agonizing dilemma of whether to laugh, fill one?s mouth, or mold little edible hearts to toss toward the performer with shareable dishes that include garlic-gorgonzola waffle fries and coconut prawns. The drink menu, too, aims to surprise with complex cocktails that range from a classic old-fashioned to a sparkling rosemary potion with Aperol.

As the go-to source for Americana and roots music, No Depression magazine curates its own festival to showcase both well-established and up-and-coming folk acts. This year's festival is headlined by the dulcet Dublin tones of The Swell Season, consisting of Irish musician Glen Hansard and Czech singer and pianist Mark?ta Irglov?, who starred together in the Academy Award?winning 2007 indie-musical Once. Other acts include acclaimed singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams, Seattle indie-folk rockers The Cave Singers, and Alejandro Escovedo?winner of No Depression ?s "artist of the decade" for the '90s. Tickets are general admission, so arrive when the gates open at noon to secure a close-up spot on Marymoor Park's two enormous grass lawns, ensuring that the artists can pointedly ignore your request that they play the entire score of The Muppet Christmas Carol.

The Harlequin Hipsters' performance of Passion, or Death! harnesses a theatrical concoction of dance, poetry, and song to challenge humanity to break free from its daily routines and follow its passions. Each 60-minute show exposes ears and eyes to Shakespearean prose, aerial stunts, burlesque, and rectangles that call themselves squares. Originally started by two dancers, the Harlequin Hipsters playfully combines performance art and social dance to dazzle audiences with a mixture of swing, hip-hop, circus arts, poetry, and live music. The show?s mesmerizing sights and sounds tempt audience members to dance along with the modern-day jesters? distinctive choreography or sing snippets of the original music during lengthy rides in crowded elevators.
