Pentatonix, Childish Gambino are Seattle-bound this summer and fall

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

I know for sure that Pentatonix has a big fan base in Seattle because I heard y'all screaming when they opened for Kelly Clarkson back in 2015. And, of course, they have a lot of LGBT followers, partially because two of its members - Mitch Grassi and Scott Hoying - are openly gay. The a cappella group is widely known for covering other artist's work, such as Daft Punk, Imagine Dragons, Lorde, Ariana Grande and Macklemore. A new album by Pentatonix, titled PTX Presents: Top Pop Vol 1 is expected to drop on April 13. Tickets to see them in concert at White River Amphitheater on June 14 are on sale now at www.LiveNation.com, or charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000.

Multi-gifted artist Childish Gambino is coming to the Emerald City. Be still my heart. I really love this guy, in every facet of his career, from acting/writing/producing ('Atlanta,' The Martian) to his music, like 2017's critically acclaimed album Awaken, My Love!. He's also very attractive. In January, Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover) accepted his first Grammy Award for Best Traditional R&B Performance for the track 'Redbone' (SGN's Top 10 Singles of 2017). Now we can listen to the song live, in addition to music from his previous records, 2011's Camp and 2013's Because the Internet, when he appears in Seattle on September 29 at Key Arena. Tickets are on sale now at www.LiveNation.com, or charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000.

I'm a sucker for tall, lean and sexy musicians, especially the ones who are really talented. So right up my alley is British singer-songwriter James Bay, who rose to fame a few years ago with the release of his debut album Chaos and the Calm, which earned him three Grammy nominations, including a nod for Best New Artist. His sophomore effort, Electric Light, is landing in record stores on May 18. Bay will introduce fans to songs from his latest album, as well as tracks from his first, when he comes to Seattle on October 14 at the Paramount Theatre. I saw him at The Showbox SoDo a couple of years ago and he was excellent. For tickets, go to www.stgpresents.org.

I've got more shows to put on your radar, starting with EDM biggie Kygo at the Accesso Showare Center on April 10, folk-pop singer-songwriter Josh Rouse at The Triple Door on May 30, electronic duo Simian Mobile Disco at The Neptune on June 14, rock legends Robert Plant and Lucinda Williams at Marymoor Park on June 27, a co-headlining concert by Evanescence and Lindsey Stirling at White River Amphitheater on September 7 and 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Joan Baez at Benaroya Hall on November 4.

Free live music with complimentary refreshments. You read that correctly. The Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) is once again hosting the Upbeat on Jackson Concert Series beginning March 17 with a performance by eclectic act Reggie Garret and the Snake Oil Peddlers, followed by a concert featuring singer-songwriters Jim Page and Kat Eggleston on April 21 and concluding with a show by another pair of local artists, Laura Love and Terry Hunt. All performances are free of charge and are being staged at Ernestine Anderson Place, 2010 South Jackson Street with complimentary refreshments and an opportunity to join fellow neighbors, or meet new friends. Show time is 7pm to 9pm. For more information, search for and visit the Upbeat on Jackson Concert Series official page on Facebook.

Finally, don't forget that 'Celebrating David Bowie' is happening this weekend, March 10, at Benaroya Hall. If you can't find tickets online, the box office should be open before the show to buy them in person. I'll be reviewing the concert, so if you can't make it for some reason you can read my thoughts on it in next week's SGN.
