UPDATE: This show is sold out, y'all!

If you didn't buy or win any tickets, all is not lost: Pickwick will be playing a free all-ages set tonight {December 6th} at Easy Street! They'll be taking the stage at the Queen Anne store at 7p. The house will probably be packed, so make sure you get there early!

More info if you need it at the Easy Street site here.


Holy crow! It's December already (Batman)? Seriously! 2011 is zipping along in the HOV lane to it's inevitable end, and so far as we're concerned, there's no better way to close it out than with a handful of killer shows: this coming week has us up to our armpits in the likes of the National and the Cave Singers, both doing two nights of performances, and there's some great art and dance events happening as we pull into the weekend: namely, two nights of BENT writing workshop benefit shows, with some spoken word artists at the Fremont Abbey Friday and a straight-up dance party Saturday. Come next Monday, we'll be bopping along in the front row to Telekinesis {with the Young Evils!} at the Crocodile, and then, finally: Soul-Night BoogieDown Fest 2011 with one of our new favorite move-your-booty bands, Pickwick, on Thursday, December 8th at the Neptune.

Phew! Can we get a "hell yes!"? Yes! How about we give away a pair of tickets to see the fine gents of Pickwick??!?! Hell yes!

It's simple enough: if you want to spend the night with a few hundred of your closest friends at the Neptune, just drop us a line via email at tig {at} threeimaginarygirls {dot} com. Be sure to include the line "HaciendaHands" so we know it's you! And since we're anticipating a big turnout on this one, take a minute to tell us a story! Why should we pick you? What's your Pickwick claim to fame? We'll compile some of the best stories and pull a winner at random on Tuesday, December 6th at noon — so be sure to get your entry in before then!

Good luck!
