Happy Father’s Day!

Don’t know what to get your Dad for Father’s Day? Don’t worry. We got a ton of events coming up for Father’s Day that will get him out of the house and away from the La-Z-Boy. He doesn’t need a new tie, he needs to go see a comedy show, go to a bacon feed or maybe a roller derby bout. Whatever he’s into, we got events that will surely brighten up his special day.

We Won A Seattle Weekly Web Award

We are proud to announce that our mobile app was selected as a 2011 Seattle Weekly web award winner, sharing the music category right alongside local legends KEXP. Seattle is where our headquarters are, and we’ve always loved the city and its music scene, and we are honored to be a part of it.

Being constantly in motion is common for both event producers and serial showgoers, so we’ve strived to make our services able to accommodate those lifestyles. In addition to our web-based mobile interfaces, including mobile ticketing and transfer-to-a-friend technology, we released our first bona fide app back in March. The Brown Paper Tickets Scanner, available for both iPhone and Android, turns your phone into a ticket scanner for a compact, low-cost alternative to other scanning setups. More details on the app’s features and instructions are available in this PDF.

Of course, we would be remiss not to mention our amazing friends Willow Tree Apps who developed our mobile scanner — this is as much their award as it is ours. Without them we wouldn’t be sharing a stage with great local apps like OneBusAway.

Thanks for the love, Seattle! And congrats to all the winners.

Hot Tickets: Seattle

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.

SxSeattle Kickoff Party!!

We love to support the music community, and have some awesome plans for SXSW this year. I’m particularly excited about our involvement with the SxSeattle group, which helps Seattle artists get an audience down in Austin.

Playing at SXSW can be instrumental in an artists’ career – being in front of the right audience can lead to record deals, agent relationships, and perhaps the best part, new fans! It’s great exposure.

Each year, SxSeattle throws a party in Austin to showcase some of the best bands from our hometown. Before the conference, there’s also a local event to kick-off the fun and help raise funds for the trip to Austin. Brown Paper Tickets is proud to be a co-sponsor of all the fun down in Texas, and I’m a member of the planning committee for SxSeattle. Here’s more about what we have planned: Read the rest of this entry »
