Bummed you didn’t get tickets to Sasquatch!?
Well, you can always try Craigslist and pray to the ticket scalping gods in hopes of getting a good deal on tickets.
Or, if you want to get a taste of Sasquatch! without making the trek to the Gorge you can catch some of the undercard bands in Seattle prior to Memorial Day weekend. Sure some of the local shows for the undercard bands are sold out too, but buying a scalped ticket outside of a club or theater is sure gonna beat the cost of gassing up your car for a roadtrip east of the Cascades and the high-scalping fees for Sasquatch! tix.
Here’s a list of 13 Sasquatch! acts you can try to see while they are in town prior to Sasquatch! in case you weren’t lucky enough to snag a ticket to the Gorge’s season opener:
Smith Westerns — Tonight @ The Crocodile
The Decemberists — Friday @ The Paramount *
The Young Evils — Saturday @ Showbox at the Market, March 12 @ the Crocodile
Young the Giant — Sunday @ the Tractor Tavern*
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis — Feb. 25*, Feb. 27* and March 5* @ Showbox at the Market
Mad Rad — March 10 @ Neumos
Dan Mangan — March 11 @ the Sunset Tavern
The Globes — March 12 @ Showbox SoDo, March 26 @ The Crocodile
