Arts >

268785-250Welcome to this week’s Artist Ticket Picks! The Artist Ticket program gives our customers a way to donate to causes that we care about.

If you’re an event producer, you can allow your ticket buyers to purchase limited-edition tickets printed with original artwork in your event settings. The ticket buyer will pay a small, additional charge of $0.25 and receive a limited edition, collectible ticket imprinted with original artwork. The current charity of our choosing will receive 100% of the additional charge. Physical tickets must be enabled on the event.

If you’re a ticket buyer, you can check to see if the limited edition ticket is available to you at the beginning of the ticket checkout process or by visiting this page. You receive a small piece of collectible art and support a valuable cause just by checking the box in the Artist Ticket widget when you’re purchasing your tickets!

You can see a full list of events carrying the tickets on the Artist Ticket page, as well as find out more about the charity. So, without further ado, here are this week’s Artist Ticket picks:

Friday, September 20 I The Warehouse Presents :: Shenandoah Davis, Apartment Lights, & Anthonie TonnonTacoma, Washington   Shenandoah Davis and Anthonie Tonnon met in Auckland in the spring (or fall, depending on which hemisphere you’re in) of 2012. They became instant fans of each other. This fall, they will be embarking on a tour throughout the western half of the US, and this winter/summer, they will be embarking on a tour through Australia and New Zealand. Joining them is Tacoma’s own Apartment Lights. This bill is a powerhouse of literary & musical genius. Come enjoy these artists in an intimate setting.

Sunday, September 29 I Laugh out Logic: Comedy Debates September JV’sSeattle, Washington   On the last Sunday of the month, Laugh Out Logic brings four of the finest comics in Seattle to argue over things they care about, have no interest in, or just make up something on the fly to win prizes and glory! What happens when comedians are posed with tough topics and have only two minutes to figure out their arguments in a double elimination tournament? Things will get ugly, funny, there may be tears, but there will definitely be laughs and a good time. The theme this month: “WE COFFEE.” Topics will be about or related to that sweet, life-fluid: coffee! Featuring: Daniel Isherwood, Sadie Blake, Luke Severeid and Nicholas Decktor-Korn.

Saturday, October 5 I Desert Dolls Roller Derby – Pretty H8 Machines vs Joon CleaversPhoenix, Arizona   This is a championship rematch you do not want to miss! The gals from Desert Dolls Roller Derby are eager to skate and leave it all on the track. You do not want a miss a second of the hard hitting, fast action packed skating from both of these teams. Guaranteed not to disappoint!

Opens Friday, October 18 I Dearly DepartedBowling Green, Kentucky   In the Baptist backwoods of the Bible Belt, the beleaguered Turpin family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious. Despite their earnest efforts to pull themselves together for their father’s funeral, the Turpin’s other problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion: firstborn Ray-Bud drinks himself silly as the funeral bills mount; Junior, the younger son, is juggling financial ruin, a pack of no-neck monster kids, and a wife who suspects him of infidelity in the family car; their spinster sister, Delightful, copes with death as she does life, by devouring junk food; and all the neighbors add more than two cents. As the situation becomes fraught with mishap, Ray-Bud says to his long-suffering wife, “When I die, don’t tell nobody. Just bury me in the backyard and tell everybody I left you.” Amidst the chaos, the Turpins turn for comfort to their friends and neighbors, an eccentric community of misfits who just manage to pull together and help each other through their hours of need, and finally, the funeral.

Friday, October 25 I The Wages of Sin 10 Year Anniversary Show at Columbia City TheaterSeattle, Washington   The Wages of Sin play traditional music for non-traditionalists. They mix Celtic with country with Appalachian with rockabilly with Tex-Mex with bluegrass, and follow the whole mess with a bracing shot of punk rock. Alternately rowdy and mournful, they’re sure to get your feet tapping, your heart palpitating, and your liver crying for mercy. Come out and help them celebrate ten years of rowdy drunken entertainment! Repent, ye sinners, and be saved!
