Lots happening in the ‘hood tonight:
– The second concert of the brand new acoustic music space Empty Sea Studios, at 6300 Phinney Ave. Al & Emily Cantrell take the stage at 8 p.m. Here’s what owner Michael Connolly told us: “Our opening concert on the 3rd was just so much fun – we literally finished construction just a few minutes before opening the door to the public…It’s great to be starting a business in a neighborhood with such strong community feeling.” (Photo below of the May 3 concert with Coyote Grace by Carolyn Waters.)
– 14th annual Greenwood/Phinney Artwalk from 6-9:30 Friday and 12-5 p.m. Saturday. More than 100 artists will display their work at 68 businesses along Phinney/Greenwood avenues, from 59th to 87th streets. Lots of entertainment along that route as well, from musicians to children’s activities. Click here for a map listing each business and artist. (Art below by Danila Rumold.

– Santoro’s Books book signing with local author Erica Bauermeister at 7 p.m. Friday at 7405 Greenwood Ave. N. Bauermeister will autograph her new novel, “The School of Essential Ingredients,” (Putnam $24.95). From Santoro’s: “This is the perfect book to curl up with on a Sunday afternoon and a terrific gift for Mother’s Day. It tells the story of eight students who gather each week for a cooking lesson from Lillian, a world-class chef who needs no lists and no recipes. She tells her students they will learn what they need to. With each lesson, friendships form, memories are evoked, and the characters learn as much about life as they do food.”
