Hot Tickets: Seattle

Here are this week’s hot tickets in the Seattle area. Check back every Thursday at noon, PST for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

TONIGHT, March 1 Listen, Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975 – CD Forum is excited to present Pat Thomas and his highly anticipated book Listen, Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975.

In 2004, Pat began working on a research project centered around the Black Panther Party with a focus on the protest recordings that the Black Power movement inspired during the 1960s and 1970s  this led to establishing strong working relationships with two key leaders of the Black Panther Party David Hilliard (Chief of Staff) and Party chairman Elaine Brown (including releasing her landmark 1969 album “Seize The Time” on CD). As well as meetings with Bobby Seale, Ericka Huggins, and other Panthers. Over a period of 5 years, Pat uncovered dozens of rare/out of print/forgotten Black Power recordings in all areas of jazz, soul, poetry, speeches, interviews, and rock/pop music  eventually amassing what might be considered the largest collection of its kind.

Hot Tickets: Seattle

Every Thursday at noon, PST, Brown Paper Tickets posts upcoming events happening in the Seattle area. Here are hot tickets for events coming up. Check back for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

Friday, September 23 Hillstomp, I Can Lick Any SOB, Lonesome Shack High Dive presents a killer bill of the best punk-influenced Americana in the Northwest. Hillstomp’s music draws heavily from north Mississippi trance blues, a bit from Appalachia and burns with the energy of punkabilly. Portland’s I Can Lick Any SOB’s heady mix of Americana and punk is reminiscent of Robbie Robertson and the Band and Neil Young and Crazy Horse partying with Black Flag. And local heroes Lonesome Shack’s music shows the influence of post war hill country blues and rural electric blues and gospel but maintains a voice all it’s own.
