It’s gonna get HOT at the BOX this weekend with the beloved Dusty 45’s bACK on that stage… “Seattle’s Dusty 45s have inspired and fired up crowds for almost two decades. They deliver their rockin’, high-energy music at full throttle, keeping fans on their feet and begging for more. The group melds styles ranging from Country Twang to Jump Blues and Surf to R&B, all while adding Dixieland and jazz elements. The finished product is a sizzling sound uniquely their own. Singer/songwriter and balladeering trumpeter, Billy Joe Huels, is known for his charismatic stage presence. Joining Huels on stage w/ top vocal skills are Jerry Battista on lead guitar, Kelly Van Camp on drums as well as harmonica and Robin Cady on upright bass. Seattle Weekly readers named The Dusty 45s “Best of Seattle” three years in a row, but they’ve steadily built their fan base at festivals and roadhouses around the country!” Take Note: Show starts at 10PM and cover is $10 at the door!

FINAL WEEK FOR “LOVE, LOSS & WHAT I WORE”

Showing Tuesday ~ Sunday

fullsizerender-16
Looking for a fresh girls night out to brighten up this Grey Day?! Check out Theatre Workshop’s “Love, Loss, & What I Wore” which premiered last week! Three reasons to go: 1. Not only is the show heartfelt (written by the incomparable Nora Ephron and her sister Delia Ephron!) but it’s also hilarious! 2. At least one story will feel as though you wrote it yourself… and for the men in the audience, you will feel as though one (or all!) of the women in your own life could have written it too! 3. “Love loss and What I Wore” is about love and loss… but also these stories are framed by every women’s closet. The wickedly funny and talented cast of women share this closet with you for 10 performances!
