It’s that time again folks, we’re back with our list of October concerts in Seattle! We always pick good ones, but this roundup is especially solid. Honestly, the month is jam-packed with some incredible shows, from rappers to underground artists and DJs!

Here are 15 October concerts in Seattle that you should check out.

Lana Del Rey

The queen of disaffected teens from the midwest. Feel some feels at a concert named after America’s most popular illustrator.

When: October 2
Where: WAMU Theater
Tickets: $109 for verified resale tickets

Boy & Bear

This well-known Australian indie band is coming out with a new album on September 27, and has released a couple of songs to get people excited. Guess what? It worked.

When: October 3
Where: Sunset Tavern
Tickets: $25

Charli XCX

We’ll call Charli XCX a post-modern pop star, since she continually denies the usual trappings of the genre. A restless collaborator with a great sound, this is definitely someone you wanna see.

When: October 4
Where: The Showbox
Tickets: $64.75 for resale

Logic, JID and YBN Cordae

While Logic is going to be the major draw for this (and rightfully so), we’d be remiss if we didn’t say that we’re way more excited for the openers. JID and Cordae are both rap heavyweights in the making, and you can see both in one night.

When: October 8
Where: WAMU Theater
Tickets: $52

Injury Reserve

An overlooked, but extremely fun, rap group. If you don’t lose your mind to ‘Oh Sh*t!’ then you need to give your head a shake. One of the hardest tracks of the past decade, hands down.
