    The Moth StorySLAM: World renowned storytelling event & top arts podcast as heard on NPR!

    7pm doors, 8pm show, all ages, bar w/ ID, plenty of non-reserved seating available.

    ADVANCE TICKETS:  Tickets usually go onsale through The Moth email system (sign up and select Seattle) about 1 week before the show but we can’t guarantee when.   Note: Premium tickets let you get in early and skip the big line but do not guarantee a seat if you’re not there at 6:45.

    WAITING LIST:  Online tickets can sell out in an hour or less, so we make about 20-50 spots available at the door ($8 cash only) and we have a convenient waiting list system for you.  Here’s how it works: Simply line up when you can (lines often start by around 6pm and then the waiting list goes up outside on the door promptly at 6:30pm.  Once you sign up, feel free to go grab dinner and check back in at 8pm as actual entry will be based on space available at 8pm only, so you have to be outside at 8pm as we read down the list until the venue is full.

    Signup on the Abbey email newsletter to find out other ways to get into The Moth such as the hard to get free Volunteer spots!

    Hilliards Drysoda

    We serve local Hilliards beer & Washington wine from Wilridge Winery. You’re welcome to bring in dinner while you wait for the show to start but we ask that you not eat anything noisy during the event due to the quiet nature of storytelling (and no smelly food like Paseo please).
