A preview of upcoming concerts, fests + awesome happenings. 

If we squint past the dizzying haze of gray, we finally see summer approaching, and we are so stinkin’ ready to welcome it with wide-open, sun-deprived arms. You too? Before we even get there, though, there’s an intriguing lineup of events that has our curiosity piqued. Pull out your iCalendar; it’s time to get plotting.

Empty Houses with Good Old War (& other not-to-be-missed shows).

It’s always music season in this town, but when summertime arrives, we really crank it up a notch. After catching all kinds of good (free!) tunes at the Fremont Solstice events this weekend, we recommend you head to The Triple Door on Tuesday, June 21, to hear two amazing acts—Empty Houses and Good Old War—from the comfort of one of Seattle’s best-loved (and most laid-back) venues.

Burlesque Alice-19

Jasper McCann and Lily Verlaine, the dynamic duo who assembled that exciting burlesque Nutcracker  I raved about in December are at it again, but this time they’ve outdone themselves; caterpillars and rabbits have never achieved such raunchy sex appeal. I’ve always been fascinated with Lewis Carroll’s charming tale, and playful use of language, and when I heard Alice in Wonderland was the setting for a burlesque performance, I couldn’t contain my excitement.
