Autumn is in the air. The leaves are ready to turn, the clouds are back from their summer break, the kids are back to tuning out teachers and not just their parents, pumpkin spices have begun their full assault on all our senses and the Seahawks are winning our city admirers (and haters) in a whole new way.
…And best of all, autumn tour season is in full swing for us audiophiles. Check out this week’s best shows in the Emerald City:
9/25 (Wednesday) Phosphorescent, Indians @ Neptune Theatre
