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.
