Every Thursday at noon, Seattle time, Brown Paper Tickets will post upcoming events happening in Seattle. Here are hot tickets coming up next week. Check back for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.
Saturday, June 4 The Tripwires, The Purrs and Llama It is hardly surprising that the Tripwires have leapt to the very forefront of Seattle’s burgeoning power pop ‘n’ roll scene, for this is indeed a quartet of considerable pedigree and startling showmanship. The group’s music translates brilliantly to the stage, and their rapport with an audience is unparalleled. The Purrs have a rich 10-year musical history, marked by appearances at Bumbershoot and MidPoint music festivals, weekend coast-to-coast jaunts to play CMJ, national tours, broken-down vans, a song featured on the HBO series “Californication,” heavy rotation on influential radio stations such as KEXP, WOXY, and SIRIUS, and hundreds of gigs with such talents as Okkervil River, A Place To Bury Strangers, The Wrens, Jesse Sykes and Film School.
Saturday, June 4 School of Rock presents CBGB’s! School of Rock is the nation’s premier, performance based music school. At this special performance School of Rock students perform the best from one of the most legendary clubs. Featuring such artists as Ramones, Talking Heads, Blondie, Television, The Misfits, Iggy and the Stooges and many more!
Saturday, June 4 Jackie Beat Live at Re-bar! Larger-than-life drag superstar JACKIE BEAT takes the stage for ONE NIGHT ONLY for a full show featuring her infamous song parodies and stand-up comedy. Check your sensitivity at the door and make sure you are not suffering from “irony poor blood” because Jackie will be pulling no punches! Award-winning performer Jackie Beat has appeared in countless TV and movie projects (including “Sex and the City” and “Flawless” with Robert DeNiro), toured as Roseanne Barr’s opening act and is the lead singer of the electro rock band, Dirty Sanchez.
Thursday, June 7 Timber Timbre and Marissa Nadler Seattle music blog Sound on the Sound said of Seattle band Timber Timbre’s latest single “On the first single from their April release Creep on Creepin’ On, Timber Timbre maintains and even heightens the woodsy-noir haunt of 2009’s self-titled release while adding an intriguing twist: a thick swirl of sun-drenched California psychedelia.” Marissa Nadler is an American dream-folk and fine artist based in Boston. Her voice was described by the popular online music website Pitchfork Media as “a voice you would follow straight into Hades.”
