There’s Still Time! Grab Your City Arts Tickets for the Best Shows in Town Starting Tonight

As we’ve said many times before, we feel incredibly lucky that the city we call home is exceptionally rich with great live music options. On certain occasions, and this weekend certainly fits the bill, this trite statement hardly begins to scratch the surface. The lineup that City Arts has brought to Seattle has once again tipped the situation to one of an embarrassment of riches.

While we’ve fawned over the schedule for weeks, we feel we’d be remiss to not remind of you of some great options that kick off in a matter of hours. While, nearly all shows (music and otherwise) should be quite enjoyable, we’ll highlight a few that we feel will rise above the rest. Of course, with shows selling out (thanks at least partially to Groupon), the good news is that even your second or third choice should still treat you quite well.
