Pilobolus, Harry Potter, and Gwen Stefani.

THURS–SAT - DANCE

They took their name from a mushroom, and watching Pilobolus' twisting, surging, jittering, floating movement is sometimes more like watching the Nature Channel than human activity, but the dancers are still there, peering out from inside the organism. 8 p.m. Thurs., Nov. 17–Sat., Nov. 19. $38. Meany Hall, University of Washington, 206-543-4880, www.uwworldseries.org. SANDRA KURTZ

FRI - FILM

Forget about Saturday's Apple Cup. The Triwizard Tournament is the game you're waiting to see. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire opens at many, many movie theaters this Friday, Nov. 18. You can be sure folks will camp out to be first in line (but tailgate parties are discouraged). See Brian Miller's assessment. LYNN JACOBSON

MON - MUSIC

Even if you can't stand No Doubt's Gwen Stefani, she's probably the most iconic white female pop performer of the past decade, and the Japanese visual bent of her solo show should make for impressive spectacle. Opener M.I.A.'s Arular is merely the album of the year. 7:30 p.m. Mon., Nov. 21. $35.50–$65.50. KeyArena, 305 Harrison St., 206-628-0888, www.ticketmaster.com. MICHAELANGELO MATOS
