Jack White, Lykke Li, Modest Mouse announce Seattle shows

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Get your calendar out, and your credit card, because there are a lot of shows headed to Seattle this summer and fall.

Let's start with rock hotshot Jack White, who many say is a genius, and I won't disagree with them. The acclaimed singer-songwriter, half of The White Stripes, will perform back-to-back concerts at the Paramount Theatre on August 25 and 26, one of only four cities on this tour where he's doing a pair of shows. The eight-time Grammy winner just released his second solo album, Lazaretto, on June 10 and will surely pluck material from it for the Paramount performances. Tickets, priced at $49.50, are on sale now through www.stgpresents.org, by phone at 1-877-STG-4TIX, or at either the Paramount, Moore or Neptune theatre box offices.

Also headed this way is Lykke Li, who hasn't played Seattle in at least three years, if memory serves me right. The Swedish artist will pay us a visit on September 17, performing one night at the Paramount Theatre. I Never Learn, her newest album, came out in May featuring the leadoff single 'No Rest for the Wicked,' a guaranteed set list entry for her concert here in a few months. Tickets for Lykke Li, priced at $38.75, are on sale now through www.stgpresents.org, by phone at 1-877-STG-4TIX, or at either the Paramount, Moore or Neptune theatre box offices.

We're not done yet. Seattle alternative rockers Modest Mouse are playing their first concert here in several years, booked at The Showbox Market on July 18. To my knowledge, the band isn't putting out any new material, so it looks to be a night of MM fan favorites, unless they plan on introducing some unreleased tracks at the hometown gig. Their appearance is part of The Showbox's 75th anniversary. Tickets, priced at $45 ($50 at the door, if any are left), are available now at www.showboxpresents.com.

Adding on to the list, Chvrches will be at The Showbox SoDo on August 7, alt-J plays the Paramount Theatre on October 15, and one of my favorite up and coming bands, First Aid Kit, will appear at the Moore Theatre on November 15.

You may have heard that Cher will be in town Pride weekend, but did you know that Fitz and the Tantrums are also scheduled to be here in Seattle as well? Yep, the LA-based pop band is set to return for an Emerald City performance on Friday, June 27 at The Showbox SoDo, where they played to a full house a year ago. The group is still touring 2013's successful album More Than Just a Dream, featuring the hit singles 'The Walker' and 'Out of My League.' By phone, I caught up with drummer John Wicks this week while Fitz and the Tantrums were in Burlington, Vermont. At the time, keyboardist Jeremy Ruzumna had taken ill (passing kidney stones), but was expected to recover soon. Wicks, a former Seattleite, expressed his excitement about coming home and the tour date coinciding with Pride - he used to live on Capitol Hill and fondly remembers being in the midst of all the Pride action. The interview will print on June 27, the night of their show. You can buy tickets for Fitz and the Tantrums at www.showboxpresents.com.

Music on the Green will return to Salish Lodge this summer with a stellar lineup of national and regional acts, including a solo performance by Seattle singer-songwriter Kris Orlowski. The concert series, spread out over a two month time frame, will feature Shelby Earle on July 10, Sera Cahoon on July 24, Ivan & Alyosha on July 31, The Horde and the Harem on August 7, and then Orlowski, who closes it out on August 14. Admission to any of the shows is available only as a package, which includes a pair of tickets, signature Salish Lodge & Spa blanket, gourmet picnic tote with bottle of wine and nibbles, access to the beverage garden featuring Northwest wines and local microbrews (available for purchase), complimentary parking and 25% off in The Attic from 6 to 10 p.m. for pre/post-concert drinks. Salish Lodge is a 30-minute drive from downtown Seattle on I-90 and has incredible accommodations with the backdrop of Snoqualmie Falls, perfect for an overnight escape or special occasion. Visit
