Next Live Show

Venue: Revolution Hall
Doors: 6:30pm
Show: 7:30pm

David Bronner
You might think Dr. Bronner's Castille Soap is just a great way to wash up while reading a label with gems like, "Wait! Arise to the stars above and thrill!," but due to CEO David Bronner's activism (he planted hemp in the DEA's front yard), the company is a forerunner in the fight for hemp legalization and against GMOs.

MK Asante
Bestselling author, filmmaker, professor and hip-hop artist MK Asante's wrote his award-winning memoir Buck in 2013. Now he's working on the film at Sundance, and has set much of it to music in Buck: The Original Book Soundtrack with help from people like Uzi and Faze Miyake.
 

Music by:

Mighty Oaks
Like a tiny U.N. of indie folk music, Mighty Oaks brings together three men from three different countries to engage in three-part harmonies. Their latest record is Howl.

Jason Isbell
Former Drive-by-Trucker Jason Isbell's last performance on Austin City Limits was so compelling that they released a DVD of his full 15-song set in November, so missing him live might lead to a massive case of FOMO. His latest record is Southeastern.

Ticket Information

Tickets are $20-$35.

Upcoming Live Shows

Venue: Revolution Hall

Show: 7:30pm

Andy Richter
Andy Richter has been a writer and sidekick for Conan O'Brien for 12 years, with a 9-year break in order to star in the hilarious Andy Richter Controls the Universe and Andy Barker, P.I. His other projects include Arrested Development, Talladega Nights, and Madagascar. He also zinged the hell out of Chelsea Handler once, which endeared him to us forever.

Jon Ronson
In The Psychopath Test, Jon Ronson helped us decipher whether we're at risk to commit murder. In The Men Who Stare at Goats, he let us in on secret and strange military practices in the war on terror. Now he's gone deep into the terrifying world of communal righteous anger and public humiliation with So You've Been Publicly Shamed.

Bill Plympton
Known as the king of indie animation, two-time Oscar nominee Bill Plympton has hand-drawn nine feature films. His latest feature, Cheatin' is about a woman who proves the depth of her love by enlisting the help of a disgraced magician to take the form of her husband's mistresses.

Musical Guests:

Ivan and Alyosha
Just so you know, there is no one named Ivon or Alyosha in Seattle's Ivon and Alyosha. (There are a couple of Tims, however, but Tim and Tim sounds less interesting.) Formed in 2007, this indie folk-pop five-piece's 2015 release It's All Just Pretend has been called "captivating" by Paste Magazine.

Chuck Palahniuk
As the author of Fight Club, Choke and 16 other novels, Chuck Palahniuk has garnered a huge following of lovers of dark, inventive, and at times gory tales that have been known to make people pass out at readings. His latest projects are Make Something Up: Stories You Can't Unread, his first book of short stories, and Fight Club 2: a 10-issue maxiseries from Dark Horse Comics that will make fans wee themselves with glee.

Jackie Kashian
Jackie claims her comedy is "like listening to a really racy episode of All Things Considered," which is also how we describe Live Wire, so this should go really well. She hosts The Dork Forest podcast, recently appeared on Conan and has a new standup special called "This Would Make an Excellent Horcrux."

Musical Guests:

Helio Sequence
The latest self-titled release from the techno-yet-psychedelic-and-bombastic indie duo Helio Sequence is their sixth release, and was called "their most spontaneous and playful" release yet by KEXP.

Tickets are $20-$35.

Musical Guests:

Sean Rowe
Singer/songwriter Sean Rowe's voice is so deep and resonant it almost sounds like he's singing in slow motion. His latest record, Madman, hypnotically marries folk, soul and R&B.

More to be announced!
