Little Big Shows: Seattle Concerts that Give Back

The new concert series gives proceeds to local nonprofits.

By Laura Dannen February 14, 2012

This is the best news we’ve heard from Starbucks since they started serving beer: The coffee giant has teamed up with KEXP and Seattle Theatre Group to hold a quarterly concert series, Little Big Shows, that brings in rising local and national acts and donates 100 percent of ticket sales to arts-related nonprofits. Thursday’s inaugural concert at the Neptune has already sold out—even we waited too long to get tickets to see Seattle soul men Pickwick and electro-soul duo Fly Moon Royalty—but we won’t miss the next show.

Brooklyn-based indie-pop band Real Estate and Sub Pop’s Poor Moon will play April 20 at the Neptune; tickets go on sale next week. We’ll update as soon as we have more details on the concerts slated for July and October.

Little Big Show: Pickwick
Feb 16, $15, Neptune Theatre. Sold out.
All proceeds benefit Arts Corps.
