A new week, another chance to see some exceptional live music. You could also wind up at some pretty lame shows.
Luckily we’re looking out for you.
Seattle's Best Concerts, In-Stores and More
OK, so it’s Wednesday and we’re just now getting our weekly recs up. Sorry about that.
Long story short, we’re no longer on speaking terms with our snooze alarm.
In good news, we’re happy to report the best of the week is still to come. This week brings some of our favorite new and old, local and beyond musicians to some of Seattle’s best venues.
At first glance this week seemed to be sorely lacking in good shows. However, with a little digging, we uncovered some gems for the most discerning of Emerald City music fans. We’re pleased to recommend some pretty intimate shows this week as well, with the largest venue being the Showbox SoDo, so you can get up close and personal with some great artists this week.
And, if it was a competition to see which venue can book the greatest number of recommendable shows for the week, we’d give the trophy to Sunset Tavern, one of our favorite little Ballard venues, as its calendar is looking pretty great this week!
Emerald City dwellers, rejoice! After a week chock full of great musical options, our recommendations culminate with the Grand Reopening of Chop Suey in Capitol Hill! We can’t wait to find out if the new owners have stayed true to the original vibe of the venue, but based on the debut lineup, we think the Chop Suey will maintain its superbly gritty underground live music reputation.
