Woodland Park Zoo has announced the first five shows for this year’s BECU ZooTunes concert series, an annual tradition in Seattle since the beginning of time itself.
Uber popular with our Lady Loving Lady friends, INDIGO GIRLS will make their 1,000th appearance in Seattle !!!
For oldies, 80s poppy/rocky/kinda punky-ish bands THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS turn up in July with special guest “X”
The rest of the line-up….eh.
More to be announced: we’ll take a crazy guess that the B-52s // Rick Springfield // Chris Isaak // Pink Martini will either do ZooTunes or the other big nostalgic summer concert series option at Chateau Ste. Michelle
