With a couple more months of cold and grey to go, here are our picks for shows over the next two months. Dancing to great live music will help us get through the winter, right? It’s mostly pop, indie, alternative, and EDM. We love that Seattle has an abundance of small, quirky venues for a more intimate experience. All 15 shows are under $30 before fees (ugh, those pesky fees!). Enjoy!

National Parks are one of America’s most unique treasures—sprawling protected lands that encourage adventure and exploring nature for everyone. Welcome to Joshua Tree, an area of desert wilderness named after the native yucca brevifolia in southeastern California. Winter does bring cooler temperatures, but there’s still quite a bit of sunshine. 

Grab your friends and family and head out to picturesque Friday Harbor for Fall hikes, beer festivals, and more

There’s nothing quite like Fall in the PNW – beautiful bright foliage, crisp morning air, and everything pumpkin spice (yes, all drinks and treats beyond Starbuck’s PSL are delish!). It’s my favorite time of year to get outside in Seattle, but it’s also a wonderful time to get out of the city, go offline, and spend some time out in nature.

In a historic moment in June, the orthodox kingdom of Saudi Arabia lifted its archaic ban on female drivers. Women are still restricted in multiple ways, without complete freedom in the right to marry, work as they deem fit, or travel freely. However, this is a win as women can finally be liberated from this decades-old rule, making it easier to generally travel around, join the workforce, and expand their own businesses.

Seattle employees take their expertise overseas.

WE Communications’ Global Pro Bono experience offers an opportunity of a lifetime. The program means that a couple employees get selected to join employees from other companies (like DOW, PIMCO and SAP) to travel abroad to developing regions, where they help a local nonprofit organization solve a wide-range of organizational problems.
