Pre-Christmas Concerts

Christmas is just around the corner and the concerts in Seattle play on.

Take a break from holiday shopping and parties to relax and listen to some live music this week. There is plenty to see and listen to in Seattle in the week ahead of Christmas.

Start things off Friday December 17 at the Crocodile which is hosting The Fling with Yukon Blonde and special guests. The show starts at 8:00 p.m. and is for those twenty one years and older. In case you don’t already know – The Fling is an indie/rock band from Long Beach and is signed with record label Dangerbird Records. You can check them out ahead of time on their MySpace page.

If you listen to 107.9 then surely you know they are hosting their holiday concert, Jingle Bell Bash and the WaMu Theater.  The show is on December 18th at 5:00 p.m. so all those preteens can still get to bed at a reasonable hour. All jokes aside the lineup is extensive with OneRepublic, Cobra Starship, Hot Chelle Rae, Tinie Tempah and the list goes on.

Seattle Concerts this Week

Upcoming concerts in Seattle for the week beginning on November 13th (and then some).

First and foremost –the Trans-Siberian Orchestra Winter Tour 2011 is coming to town and if the holiday season fills your heart with joy and happiness then kick it off with an epic show. Tickets might sell out so plan ahead! Show is on Saturday November 26th at 8:00 p.m.

Now let us focus on the week ahead in music in Seattle. If you want an out of the ordinary operatic experience (what is an ordinary opera experience though really?) then head to Benaroya Hall on Sunday November 13th at 10:00 a.m. and listen to, or join in, the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. The Seattle Symphony will also be featuring classics such as Bach, Mozart and Stravinsky on Friday November 18 at 8:00 p.m. as well and it is bound to be a great show.  

Who is Singing in Seattle

Upcoming concerts in Seattle for the week ahead.

It is a bit late notice but the Aeterno Elementum: A Heavy Metal Opera will be at the Broadway Performance Hall on Friday 11/4 and Saturday 11/5 with the show kicking off at 8:00 pm, tickets $25. If you are feeling a little dark, down and maybe even a tad violent than this music could be your anthem. The show features operatic performances (hence the name), knights, acrobats and fire breathers and it really is fun for everyone but maybe not the kids. Check it out if you were sad to see Halloween go.

If you need something to relax you after a heavy metal opera than check out Malcolm Goldstein at the Chapel Performance Space at Good Shepherd Center on Saturday November 6 at 8:00 or 10:00 pm. He is a legend in the violin world and his playing since the 1960s so if nothing else you can trust he has practiced enough to impress. Tickets are $5-$15 so if is perfect for an inexpensive night out.
