Since 2012, Starbucks, KEXP, and STG Presents have teamed up to put on the concert series which raises money for local youth-focused arts organizations (NFFTY, 826 Seattle, Vera Project, etc.) by donating 100 percent of the shows' ticket sales. To celebrate making it to double digits, Little Big Show brings in its biggest headliner yet, as Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard will play a solo gig at the Neptune Theatre on November 15 to raise money for ArtsFund. The concert offers a chance for fans to hear acoustic versions of material from his 2012 record Former Lives and favorites like "I Will Follow You Into the Dark." And considering the next Death Cab for Cutie record is already finished, he might even bust out stripped down versions of a few new songs. This will be the first Little Big Show that isn't a $15 ticket, but it's still a bargin at $25. Cataldo's Eric Anderson will play a solo set of his own to open up the show.
Tickets for Little Big Show 10 featuring Ben Gibbard are $25 and go on sale Friday, October 3 at 10am at stgpresents.org.
