Win Tickets to See “Jacket Summer,” Brother Bear and Cumulus
With one last lovely Seattle summer week behind us, it seems we are destined to don our jackets again till next July. Which is just fine with our headliner this Friday and the progenitor of the term, “Jacket Summer.” Known better by his own name, this iconic local songwriter is changing things up this Friday, playing with a full band and showing a side of himself and his new record that none of us have seen yet and we may never see again. Despite a label and decade spanning career, we think he’s writing the best songs of his life right now and we are so excited he’s agreed to play another show for us, whatever name he has to go by.
Secret is out … JACKET SUMMER IS DAMIEN JURADO, with a full band.
Joining Jacket Summer will be Brother Bear and Cumulus, two bands that credit our headliner as huge inspirations in the creation of their own songs. You can hear his influence in the songs of both acts:
With a weekend forecast for showers and 60 degree temperatures, we’ll all be members of Jacket Summer soon enough. For two lucky readers, they can get an early start for free.
