The MarchFourth Marching Band is coming to the Showbox in the Market (one of my favorite spots in Seattle to see live music) Saturday, February 28!
Don’t forget your earplugs – this production is anything but quiet. Stilt walkers and Saxophones! Dancers and Drummers! Trombones! Acrobatics! Guitars! This wild whirl of visual and musical fun is a great reason to dress in a way you feel AWESOME and get out and dance this Saturday. Will I see you there?!

In their own words: “MarchFourth: Steamfunk Rock-n-Roll Circus Party
Aside from the marching band-themed costumes, as well as the 5-piece percussion corps and 7-part brass section, M4 is far from a “marching band” in any traditional sense (though they have been known to parade down Main Street before taking the stage). M4 is anchored by funky electric bass and has been evolving into a more guitar- and vocal-driven musical experience. The show will take you on a journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the gypsy sounds of eastern Europe to the streets of Brazil, echoing the deepest grooves of American funk, rock, and jazz then boiling it all together in cinematic fashion with high-stepping stilt-acrobatics and dazzling dancers. This genre-busting, in-your-face experience is not to be missed! What began as a Fat Tuesday party in Portland, OR. on March 4th 2003, has since become one of the nation’s best live touring acts.”

What happens when you mix some of the hottest burlesque stars with one of the most magical classics of all time? “Through the Looking Glass: The Burlesque Alice in Wonderland,” of course!

BULLETS OVER BROADWAY

March 8 – 13, 2016
April 26 – May 1, 2016
MOTOWN THE MUSICAL
May 31 – June 12, 2016
Jersey Boys is one of my all-time favorite musicals so I can’t wait to take someone who hasn’t seen it yet. Disney’s Newsies is going to make a great date night with Brandon and I really want to learn more about “Motown The Musical” and “If/Then!” Bullets over Broadway – I remember loving the movie – “Don’t Speak!” – and expect this will be fun to watch live on stage. Annie will be a perfect start to the season, hopefully with my nieces in tow! Season options include: Riverdance, Beauty and the Beast (my review from its last visit, here), The Book of Mormon and Blue Man Group.
We are so lucky to live in a town with such vibrant theatre offerings!
Seattle Pockets readers can purchase tickets to Carousel at The 5th Avenue Theatre for the February 12th performance for only $4. Limit 4 per person, while they last.

My favorite freebie of the year is coming next week and thanks to a disagreement over the date, I can get two freebies in one. So can you.
National Frozen Yogurt Day is next week, but two major froyo chains disagree on the date. Yogurtland says its Monday, Menchie’s says it’s Feb. 6th. That means more free yogurt for you and me.
That’s because participating Yogurtland stores are celebrating on Monday by giving out free frozen yogurt and toppings from 4 to 7 p.m. Check with your local store because how much they give out varies from store to store.
On Friday, Feb. 6, participating Menchie’s are celebrating by giving away up to 6 ounces free per guest from 4 to 8 p.m.
Man, is this a great country or what?
