Enjoy the cool sounds of ‘Rat City Brass’ at BAT’s Valentine’s Concert Feb. 14

On Sunday, Feb. 14, enjoy the irresistible 21st-century musical stylings of the Rat City Brass while indulging in chocolate and champagne, beer or wine at Burien Actors Theatre’s Valentine’s Fundraiser Concert.

Combining infectious melodies from the 1960s golden age of instrumental pop, cool cocktail exotica and a touch of contemporary roar, the Seattle-based Rat City Brass have fashioned an exceptional band guaranteed to raise smiles from old-school music aficionados and jaded hipsters alike.

Here’s a taste of the band in action from Burien’s 2014 Arts-A-Glow, courtesy Michael Brunk:

YouTube Preview Image

When they formed in 2009, Seattle-based Rat City Brass largely paid homage to classic pop composers like Herb Alpert, Burt Bacharach, and Henry Mancini. Within months, they added their own arrangements of songs by artists like The Turtles, The Beatles, and even Tchaikovsky.  Suddenly it’s on – and the cool kids get it.

Rat City Brass plays the best rooms throughout the Pacific Northwest, and has been featured live on Seattle’s KEXP 90.3 FM.

With top-notch musicianship, soaring melodies, danceable rhythms and a fun, breezy stage presence, Rat City Brass is what brass sounds like in the 21st century.

BAT’s Valentine’s Day fundraiser concert begins at 7:30 p.m. and runs until 9:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 general admission, $12 seniors and $10 students. For tickets, go to www.burienactorstheatre.org or call 206-242-5180–while tickets last. Burien Actors Theatre is located at 14501 4th Ave SW in Burien.

next-room-poster-final

A finalist for the Pulitzer Prizc, In the Next Room or the vibrator play is a touching and comical love story about a young doctor and his wife in the Victorian age, and it opens at Burien Actors Theatre this Friday, Feb. 12, and continues through March 6.

The performance will also feature specialty drinks themed to the show, as well as free on-site parking, plus an opening night party.

Here’s the synopsis:

“IN THE NEXT ROOM, or the vibrator play”
Dr. Givings is obsessed with the marvels of technology and what they can do for his patients. He isn’t sure exactly how the vibrators help the women he treats–but they keep coming back. The only woman who isn’t helped is his own wife, who longs to connect with him – but not electrically. Written by Sarah Ruhl, In the Next Room, or the vibrator play explores the Victorian era repression—and what happens when the rules are broken.

This show is suitable for ages 16 and older due to adult content and brief nudity.

Ticket prices range from $7 to $20. Student tickets are just $10. For tickets, special deals or other information, go online to www.burienactorstheatre.org or call 206-242-5180.
