    ADVANCE TICKETS: Tickets go on sale about a week in advance through The Moth email system (sign up and select Seattle).

    WAITING LIST:  About 30-50 tickets are typically available at the door ($10 cash only) and we also have a convenient waiting list system for you.  Here’s how it works: Simply line up when you can (lines often start by around 6:15pm and then the waiting list goes up outside on the door promptly at 6:30pm.  Once you sign up, feel free to grab dinner as actual entry will be based on space available at 8pm only. So you only have to be outside at 8pm as we read down the list until the venue is full.

This is a fundraiser event for Greening the Abbey project, managed by the building owners, Church of the Apostles.

    10/22 – Dan Bern

    “With his acoustic guitar and a batch of witty and insightful songs, Dan Bern is rapidly becoming the voice of a new generation of folk music.” – NPR “Dan Bern is a throwback, a singer-songwriter who marvels at life’s beauty, fragility, and complexity with a fresh, defiantly uncompromising style. In a perfect world, he’d be as beloved as Dylan or Lennon—he’s that good!” So wrote Stereophile magazine contributing editor David Sokol for that publication’s popular Records To Die For feature several years back.
