Every Friday, Lynn Jacobson, features editor with The Seattle Times, highlights a few events happening in the Seattle area over the  weekend. Here are a few links to resources and information about upcoming events October 21-23:

Death Cab for Cutie. One of the Northwest's most critically successful bands ever will end the U.S. leg of its world tour with a show at KeyArena on Saturday, Oct. 22. Expect an ecstatic, hometown crowd. Up-and-coming indie-folk band The Head and the Heart opens.

ZomBcon. A three day fan fest for zombie devotees, this convention will bring stars from "The Walking Dead" and "True Blood" to the SeaTac Hilton. A UC Berkeley neuroscientist will talk about "scanning the zombie brain" and a makeup artist will attendees how to achieve that undead look for Halloween -- or just for walking around.

"Luminous: The Art of Asia." This is a luscious new Seattle Art Museum exhibition that spotlights the museum's impressive collection of Asian art. It includes everything from traditional Chinese bronzes to a new, contemporary video installation by Korean artist Do Ho Suh. Also, plan ahead for SAM Remix next Friday night, the 28th -- that's when the downtown museum stays open late for a giant party, with music and activities on every floor. Just 20 bucks gains entry to "Luminous," all the other exhibitions and activities.
