The End, The Mountain announce exciting holiday show lineups

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Santa Claus isn't the only one coming to town in December. Mumford & Sons, Death Cab for Cutie, Florence + the Machine, Cage the Elephant, and Foster the People are all catching sleigh rides to Seattle this winter, too.

Local radio stations KNDD 107.7 (The End) and KMTT 103.7 (The Mountain) recently announced their holiday concert lineup, featuring a diverse array of talent.

The Deck the Hall Ball, sponsored annually by The End, enlists 2011 Best New Artist Grammy nominees Mumford & Sons as the headlining act, along with Seattle favorite Death Cab for Cutie, garage-punk band Cage the Elephant, and fast-rising stars Foster the People and Young the Giant. Also on the lineup are Two Door Cinema Club and Grouplove. The Deck the Hall Ball takes place December 7 at Key Arena. Tickets ranging from $45.50 to $75 are now on sale at all Ticketmaster outlets and the Key Arena box office, and special VIP packages for $125 come with premier seating and access to 'Club VIP' acoustic performances by some of the artists. Visit www.1077theend.com for more details.

Winter Warmth, hosted each year by The Mountain, boasts another 2011 Best New Artist nominee, Florence + the Machine, as its headliner. Joining them is folk-rock ensemble The Head and the Heart and singer-songwriter Mat Kearney. The concert takes place December 8 at WaMu Theater. Tickets priced at $41 and $75 are on sale now at all Ticketmaster outlets and the WaMu box office. Visit www.1037themountain.com for more details.

Though not part of the holiday cheer, Wilco has also announced a Seattle date on its itinerary. The Chicago-based indie band will play the Paramount Theatre on February 7, the group's first appearance here since early 2010. Tickets, priced at $45, are available at www.tickets.com or the venue's box office. Wilco is touring in support of its eighth studio album, The Whole Love.

The Earshot Jazz Festival is well under way and runs through November 6. Seattle's premiere jazz event, happening at multiple venues around the city, includes performances by The Bad Plus (Town Hall, October 29), Keith Jarrett w/ Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette (Benaroya Hall, November 1), and local trumpeter Chad McCullough with Belgian pianist Bram Weijters. Visit www.earshot.org for the complete lineup and festival details.

Last call: the following shows take place this week. Judas Priest at WaMu Theater, October 29 (Seattle Gay News is reviewing); Mac Miller at The Showbox SoDo, October 30 (sold out); Joan Rivers at Pantages Theater, November 4; and The Lemonheads at The Triple Door, November 5.

Finally, next week it's The Bangles here in The Music Lounge. The all-female pop band has reunited and descends on Seattle for a November 5 appearance at The Showbox Market. But before they go there, they're coming here. Look for an interview with Debbi Peterson from The Bangles in SGN on November 4.
