This just in off the wire: Thursday, June 24, is the launch of “Wild Summer Nights,” outdoors at the Bravern in Bellevue (21+, every Thursday evening through September 16). Besides live music acts courtesy of the Triple Door, Wild Ginger will serve complimentary appetizers from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. (The event is very much like “Wild Ginger Live” but outside.)
Acts announced so far are the James Baumgart Trio on June 24, Das Schwa (July 1), Dan Rapport (July 8), Ty Bailie B3 Trio (July 15), and soul-singer Darrius Willrich (July 22). If you ever stop by the Triple Door’s Musicquarium you’ll likely be familiar with some of these, as well as Wild Ginger appetizers. (YUM!)
The cover ($5) benefits Hopelink, which helps homeless and low-income families, so you pretty much have to go. Also, if you live on the Eastside, seriously, what else are you going to do? There, I said it.
You can pick up tickets in advance at the Concierge Desk in Building 1 at The Bravern, or at the event. Congregate at the outdoor fireplace off the 110th Avenue Arrival Court; if it’s rainy, the music, food and drinks will take over the Wild Ginger and will start at 8 p.m.
