Record label Barsuk Records celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, and The Long Winters will join the festivities with a special show on November 8th, playing When I Pretend To Fall in its entirety. To add to the festivities, this will be a full band show - there haven't been any for several years now, so this is indeed a show not to be missed.
When I Pretend To Fall has an anniversary of its own: it was 10 years ago that Barsuk released the album.
This night is part of a four-night anniversary celebration on November 7-10 with Barsuk artists past and present for four once-in-a-lifetime shows in favorite Seattle venues. The show will also feature special guests from the Barsuk roster, including a very rare performance by Chris Walla, the Seattle debut of new Barsuk signing Minor Alps, and David Bazan.
This show and all three others will benefit Gilda's Club Seattle, a cancer support organization in the Seattle area.
This all ages anniversary show will take place at the Neptune Theatre in Seattle's University District. Doors open at 6.30, show at 7.30 pm.
» Tickets available now at the Neptune Theatre website, or a 4-day-pass from the Barsuk website
