Adele with Wanda Jackson @ Paramount Theatre (Sold Out!)
There’s a reason this show is WAY Sold Out. There aren’t too many International acts right now hotter than british singer/songwriter Adele. Her amazing sophomore album 21 not only broke the record for the longest running consecutive number-one studio album for a solo artist (11 weeks), it also just became the biggest-selling digital album of all-time in the UK.

Remember that huge U2 – 360 degrees show that was supposed to happen last year? It’s finally here Seattle. Qwest Field should serve as a perfect backdrop for a gigantic rock show with such epic proportions. Hopefully Bono’s back will hold out this year…
Sunday, June 5
Friendly Fires with Wise Blood @ Neumos ($15, 8PM 21+) (Buy tickets)
One of the few bands that can really get Seattle dancing and a KEXP staff favorite. Having just released their fantastic album Pala, it should be a great way to re-connect with the band and get your dance moves on. If you have yet to witness their fun and energetic live show up-close, we compel you to go to this show.
Gruff Rhys of Super Furry Animals with Y Niwl @ Tractor Tavern ($12, 8PM, 21+) (Buy tickets)
