Be in the know about Upstream’s secret shows

Getting things done today? Here are three more things you could consider adding to the list…

  • Reader Josh Holland tells us that Upstream, a big Seattle music festival that’s funded by local billionaire Paul Allen and is set to debut this May, is holding secret music shows leading up to the big event. Josh went to one last week at an unoccupied ground level of a commercial space in Pioneer Square, and found out about it by subscribing to the festival’s newsletter, which you can do here.
  • Reader Cynthia Brothers, who runs Vanishing Seattle, is encouraging people to sign a petition that would give Teatro ZinZanni more time to find a new home. KUOW reports that Teatro ZinZanni, a long-running dinner theater, is getting kicked out of its space in Lower Queen Anne mid-March after the property was sold to a developer.
  • And one more thing: Next Friday, January 27, is Count Us In, an annual nighttime count of people who live unsheltered in King County. They’ve got all the volunteers they need for Seattle, but still need help with the count in other places, like Auburn, Renton, and Federal Way. Want to help? Sign up here.
