August, you’ve been nice. But September, we’re expecting great things from you, too. (No pressure.)
We’re all for rooting on local creatives, talented athletes, and those simply trying to make the world a bit of a softer place. Here are some worthwhile causes and inspiring people to put on your radar:
Planning for a full season of music at the zoo and beyond.
Recently there have been plenty of roster unveilings for exciting events ranging from the Seattle International Film Festival (taking place May 18 to June 11, tickets on sale now) to Timber! Outdoor Music Festival (which returns July 12 through 14). Earlier this week, Bumbershoot also revealed its anticipated lineup; 3-day passes go on sale Friday, May 4, at noon.
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.
Seattle (and the entire NW) amps up for a high-volume season.
Seattelites love to rock out all year-round, but when we’re finally blessed with never-ending azure days, we crank it up even harder. This summer’s music options include the obvious gems like Capitol Hill Block Party (July 25-27) and Bumbershoot (August 30-September 1), and we’re impressed once again with these events’ lineups that continue to “wow.”
The seasoned string band rocks the scene at Zoo Tunes
Every summer, Seattleites flock to the the lawn of the Woodland Park Zoo for some alfresco music magic. This year’s Zoo Tunes line-up ranges from Randy Newman (July 24) and Indigo Girls (July 30 & 31) to Todd Snider’s Traveling Folk Show (August 11).
