Discover art off the mainstream tonight

It's the first Thursday of the month: time to get your Seattle art walk on!
Rather than hit the usual galleries, why not check out a few of these alternative art spots tonight?

We Have Our Own Ways
by Team Nerd
This first solo show by Team Nerd is a fine art printmaking tribute to the women in the artist's family. The show features oversized art books of letterpress poetry and linoleum block portraits, and oversized wood block prints of the ladies. You've most certainly seen Team Nerd work if you walk around the city much.
Zietgiest Coffee and Gallery
3rd and Jackson, Pioneer Square
6pm - 8pm

Works by Brandon Baker
This artist's wry sense of humor is reflected in his color-saturated, 'toon-like artwork of street-jaded creatures. He'll be showing paintings and will have t-shirts and magnets available.
Thursday is also his birthday! Check in to wish him a happy new year, if for no other reason.
Additional artists also showing at this venue.
Heaven Nightclub
172 Washington St

4pm - 10pm

Of course, my favorite haunt:

619 Western Ave building, of which I've already blogged.

Various hours by studio
generally starts early and runs late.

Plus one more, a little out of the usual First Thursday 'hood:

No Wimps: Art Inspired by Tattoo Culture
various artists including Ego, Shawn Barber, and Damon Conklin
This month's show at BLVD Gallery opens a week earlier than usual to kickoff the Seattle Tattoo Expo this weekend. Although the gallery isn't in the Pioneer Square area, it runs late tonight so you have time to wrap up at the square then catch a cab for a short ride up to Belltown to finish off your art walk night.
BLVD Gallery
2316 2nd Ave

619 love
