Of the Valentine's Day (that's Tuesday, February 14, remember, boyfriends?) live music options that are available in town--Columbia City Theater's Love Songs with Kaylee Cole, Matt Bishop of Hey Marseilles, and Tim Wilson of Ivan & Alyosha; the Comet's benefit for Jubilee Women's Center with Lisa Dank and Vox Mod; the Nectar's reggae Valentine's Blaze; and the Funhouse's St. ValenGRIND's Day Massacre, to name a few--I'd go with seeing Philadelphia's Dr. Dog at the Neptune. It's a beautiful setting, and Dr. Dog is a Great Equalizer--everyone likes their winsome pop songs.
You'll also be able to celebrate in style--yesterday I had a conversation with Seattle Theatre Group's ever-helpful Jason Ross; I was wondering if the Neptune bar offered champagne. It's not something that's usually on the menu, but Ross spoke with the Neptune's bar manager, Dan Reinharz (aka Tiki Bob's Tiki Dan), details were hashed out, and now, in honor of hearts and love and all things Valentine's Day, champagne will be available! A limited supply will be available upon request; prices will vary with brand; and you'll have to purchase by the bottle, which should be the perfect amount for you and your date to get in the mood for a night of dancing. May the sound of corks popping ring through the evening.
This show isn't for another two weeks, but you might want to buy your tickets now; seems like something that will sell out in advance.
PS. Right now you can stream Dr. Dog's entire new album, Be The Void, on Team Coco, before it hits stores next week!
