Everyone is gearing up for a holiday weekend – lots of you have Friday off work as a holiday – and what better way to get it started than to hang out at a free downtown Seattle concert, complete with appetizers and cocktails?

Head to Pacific Place (6th & Pine) at 5:00 pm to catch Star Anna and the Laughing Dogs in a two hour concert presented by radio station 103.7 The Mountain, Carter Subaru and Pacific Place. We love Star Anna.


“Star and her band are equal parts trashy Americana-laced rock mixed with sophisticated storytelling and charm that raises Anna and her band, The Laughing Dogs, to the gritty level of greatness.” – Twang Nation

Every Thursday, through the end of July, The Mountain’s Downtown Escape series will offer a new concert at Pacific Placefeaturing acoustic music by some of Seattle’s best bands. Il Fornaio Cafe sets up the happy hour ambiance with delicious appetizers, beer and wine for sale along with their usual menu. Other Pacific Place merchants and restaurants feature their own happy hour ‘menus’ of special offers and contribute to the raffle drawings held during each concert.

Now that’s a very happy happy hour.

Here’s the rest of the concert schedule:

July 9 – Loni Rose
July 16 – Devereaux
July 23 – Central Services
July 30 – Ian McFeron Band
