Little Big Show Returns with Real Estate and Poor Moon

The Seattle concert series to support nonprofits readies its second act.

By Seth Sommerfeld April 11, 2012

After the resounding success of February’s sold-out Pickwick concert supporting Arts Corps, the Little Big Show concert series returns next week with Brooklyn’s Real Estate and Seattle’s own Poor Moon. Real Estate has made a living releasing chill indie songs that put buzzmakers in a tizzy; the band has released two LPs and both have garnered “Best New Music” tags from Pitchfork. Poor Moon, a side project for Christian Wargo and Casey Wescott of Fleet Foxes, plays laid-back, reverbed rock and released its debut EP Illusion last month via Sub Pop. Continuing with Little Big Shows’ core principle of supporting local arts nonprofits, 100 percent of the show’s ticket sales will go to Coyote Central, the Central Seattle youth arts organization that hosts creative workshops on everything from painting and cooking to breakdancing and bike building.

Little Big Show plans to do four shows a year with the final two concerts coming in July and October. While no lineups or dates have been announced, we’ll be sure to pass along the details as soon as they’re available.
