Three times a year, KEXP, Starbucks and STG partner together to present Little Big Show, a concert series created to benefit our city’s arts organizations, with 100% of ticket sales donated to local non-profits. The upcoming Little Big Show – at Neptune Theatre this Friday, May 16 – will feature Cloud Cult and Benjamin Verdoes. All proceeds for this show will benefit Hugo House Youth Programs.
Located in Capitol Hill, Hugo House is a community non-profit occupying a Victorian house originally built in 1902. Founded by three writers – Linda Jaech, Frances McCue, and Andrea Lewis – with the intention to support writers of all ages and backgrounds, Hugo House is, essentially, the beating heart of Seattle’s diverse literary scene. Hugo House is named after Seattle-based creative writing teacher and poignant poet Richard Hugo, a Northwest favorite. With programs like Cheap Wine & Poetry, Cheap Beer & Prose, and Works In-Progress, Hugo House has been working hard since 1997 to keep the people of Seattle amused, educated, and stimulated by the active community of Northwest writers and readers alike. Additionally, Hugo House is home to ZAPP, one of the world’s largest collections of independent zines, comics, chapbooks and other small press periodicals.
With the revenue from Little Big Show’s ticket sales, Hugo House will be bolstering their youth programs in order to engage young authors in the already established writing community that the beautiful Northwest offers. So, grab your tickets here, and we’ll see you at the Neptune on May 16th!
