If you’ve got plans tonight, cancel them and go to the Tractor.
I’m not kidding.
Tonight, one of our favorite Ballard venues is getting ready to host one of my new favorite imaginary artists — the one and only Chris Pureka. Touring behind her latest release, How I Learned to See in the Dark, Pureka will be gracing Seattle tonight with her intelligent, swoonworthy, heartbreaking alt.americana amazingness. Over the course of her career, she’s written some of the saddest songs you’ll ever love to have been slain by — especially so with the most recent compositions from How I Learned to See…, which you can read about in more detail here. (In case you missed us gushing about it the first time.)
There’s not much else to say about tonight, aside from the fact that it’s going to be one of those shows you wish you saw when… so if you haven’t gotten your tickets for tonight’s show — act fast. As of late yesterday it was just about sold out!
We’ll see you at the Tractor!
