Although we are a music driven station, 88.1 The ‘Burg appreciates all kinds of art and entertainment. This is why we are stoked to promote and giveaway tickets to a comedy show featuring “The Nerdist” Chris Hardwick.
Actor, television personality, writer, blogger and comedian, Hardwick has his fingers in many of the entertainment cookie jars. In his attempt to create an evil nerd empire, Hardwick founded Nerdist.com, a top-ten comedy podcast on iTunes that focuses on cosplay, comics, games, science and other geeky topics.
Chris Hardwick will be performing in the northwest on December 13 at the Showbox at the Market in Seattle and The ‘Burg will be giving away tickets to the show. Listen today (12/2) between 3 and 6 p.m. and Friday (12/6) between 8 and 10 a.m.
Garfunkel and Oates is a duo made up of two of the most bad-ass women in comedy and music. The funny team made up of singer/actresses Riki Lindhome (Garfunkel) and Kate Micucci (Oates) writes and performs some of the dirtiest, cutest, catchiest indie music around.
The hilarious duo will be performing at The Neptune Theatre in Seattle on November 1st and The ‘Burg has all the hookups. Tune-in to Geek Speak tomorrow (10/25) between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m for a chance to win tickets to the Seattle show. We will also give a pair away Monday (10/28) between 3 and 6 p.m. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to see this pretty, witty group!
SASQUATCH!!! It’s on every music lover in the Northwest’s brain. We’ve heard mixed reviews of the lineup this year but 88.1 The ‘Burg staff is most excited for The Postal Service, CAKE, Tame Impala, Mumford and Sons and Alt-J. Other big acts include Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Sigur Ros, Vampire Weekend, The XX and Nick Offerman who plays Ron Swanson on the television show Parks and Recreation.
The Postal Service
Tickets are a whopping $337.50 but fortunately your music central is hooking it up! The hunt for Sasquatch will be on Thursday, February 7th, at 10:30 a.m. Sasquatch will be roaming the CWU Campus and whoever catches him first will win a pair of Sasquatch Festival passes. See link below for full list of contest rules.
Because The ‘Burg loves you so much we will be giving away ANOTHER pair of Sasquatch tickets this April at our own battle of the bands “Burg Stock” festival. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and mobile app for more details to come
