Last month began a new First Friday Local Music series to showcase local bands at the Kay White Hall. The event is a partnership between Vashon Events and Vashon Center for the Arts and is sponsored by John L. Scott.

Local trio The Curvettes will perform a free show from 8:30 to 10 p.m. Friday at Vashon Center for the Arts.

The Curvettes — Arlette Moody, Elaine Ott-Rocheford, and Stephanie Murray — are a “retro chic” trio backed by The Straightaways, an acoustic swing combo band.

Musicians who perform in the series are chosen based on the theme of the art opening in the gallery, which is “Vashon Island Quilts Exhibition,” to broaden the First Friday arts theme to include the art of music as well.
