Smokey Brights at last year's Timber! Fest

Now in its third year, Timber! Outdoor Music Festival, and its winter

Now in its third year, Timber! Outdoor Music Festival, and its winter counterpart, Timbrrr!, have quickly become welcome additions to festival season. The three-day event, scheduled for July 16–18 in Tolt-MacDonald Park in Carnation, Wash., balances an eclectic lineup (last year’s fest featured everyone from Charles Bradley and J Mascis to Grynch, Cumulus, and Julia Massey & the Five Finger Discount) with an appreciation for the outdoors and family via a variety of kid-friendly activities and camping accommodations. At this launch party, attendees will not only get a first look at this year’s lineup, they’ll also get to see a few of those artists live before the fest. Chop Suey, 1325 E. Madison St., 324-8005, chopsuey.com. 8 p.m. Free with RSVP. 21 and over. ACPJeremy Enigk’s name has been synonymous with emo since practically before emo was even a thing. As the lead singer of Sunny Day Real Estate, Enigk, and the band’s debut album, Diary, helped shape the genre into the melodic, emotionally charged entity it is today. After the band’s first breakup, Sunny Day side project The Fire Theft filled that gap, with Enigk at the helm. As a solo artist, Enigk has released five albums, most recently OK Bear, all of which feature just as much feeling as his full-band releases. With so much heartfelt material to draw from for this acoustic show, it’s best to have a few tissues handy, just in case. With Jen Wood, Mark Nichols and the Everexpanding Experience Machine. Neumos, 925 E. Pike St., 709-9442, neumos.com. 8 p.m. $15. 21 and over. ACP
