Seattle’s music scene is one that has gone through all sorts of ups and downs. But it has never experienced anything quite like the COVID-19 pandemic which threatened the existence of not only the artists themselves but also the city’s best music venues. Luckily for us, one of Seattle’s best and most iconic venues, The Showbox, is returning next month after over a 500-day closure.

Like many other local music venues, The Showbox closed early in 2020 due to COVID-19 regulations with no idea when they might be able to reopen. But now that Washington has reopened venues are starting to cautiously reopen their doors to the public. If you haven’t seen a show yet this summer, heading to the reopening party might just be the most fun you’ve had yet.

On August 20th you’ll be able to help welcome The Showbox back with performances by local star Benjamin Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie and The Postal Service as well as David Bazan. It’s sure to be quite the show and as you probably know tickets will go fast. So if you want to attend be sure to purchase your tickets tomorrow, July 23rd when they go on sale.

If you’d rather wait for a different artist you can also buy tickets for upcoming performances by artists like Sol, 100 Gecs, Tinashe, and more. You can learn more about the reopening and grab tickets by clicking the link below. Enjoy folks!
