This week’s highlights
Banks, 9 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 18, at Showbox SoDo. This pop singer brings her real and haunting songs to Seattle for a stop on her third headlining tour in support of her third studio album, “III.” Born Jillian Rose Banks, the singer will end the North American leg of “The III Tour” in Miami next month before moving on to Europe. “III” has been met with positive reviews and was named “her best album yet” by The Guardian. Fans of darker, downtempo music should check out the show.
Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band, 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21, at the Tacoma Dome. After having to cancel the original tour date, due to the February snowstorm, Bob Seger is finally hitting Tacoma for a rescheduled show. Seger started the Silver Bullet Band in 1973 and has released seven studio albums with the band. Fans of the rocker won’t want to miss this show considering it is his final tour.
