There’s lots to do in the great Northwest this weekend, and as an added bonus, this week’s suggested activities are cheap! Remember, these are just a few of the many events happening all over the region; for more, check out our Entertainment page. And as always, click on the links below to learn more.


You can find some barking-good entertainment at CenturyLink Events Center this weekend, when the Seattle Kennel Club Dog Show gets underway. Competitions for hundreds of breeds, plus demonstrations and guest appearances go on all day, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday and Sunday. Tickets: $7-$14.



The Sound Off! battle of the bands, showcasing musicians under the age of 21, comes to a tuneful conclusion this Saturday night at EMP Museum. In the running for the finals are Bleachbear, Naked Giants, Emma Lee Toyoda and One Above Below None (shown in the video above). Sound Off! has launched the careers of such bands as The Lonely Forest and Dyme Def, so you may be in for something special. Tickets are $8-$12.



Kids love to learn about their prehistoric friends. (Where else can you hear adults talking about dinosaur poop?) At the Burke Museum’s Dino Day, they can dig for fossils, draw dinosaurs, meet paleontologists and more. 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday. Admission is $7.50-$10.



Celebrated Northwest filmmaker Lynn Shelton will pay a visit to Northwest Film Forum for an International Women’s Day 2015 program on Sunday, March 8. She’ll introduce her 2000 documentary “The Clouds that Touch Us Out of Clear Skies.” Also on the lineup: Mary Dore’s 2014 “She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry,” an oral history of the feminist movement circa 1966-71. Tickets are $6-$11.



This final suggestion isn’t technically for the weekend, but it’s too good to pass up: Silent Movie Mondays continue at the Paramount Theatre for two more weeks. The theme for this winter’s series is German films, made by emigre directors who shaped Hollywood. This Monday at 7 p.m.: F.W. Murnau’s “Faust.” Tickets: $5-$10.
