Almost every night of the week, Seattle’s stages offer a roster of regional indie-folk artists, do-it-yourself punk bands and homegrown comedians, as well as nationally touring pop stars. To that end, choosing something for your night out can be a daunting task. This weekly guide can help by filtering for recommended shows, select dates and your favorite genres.
This week’s highlights
Dean Lewis, 6:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 18, at the Crocodile. The Australian singer-songwriter will bring his honest and emotional songs to Seattle for a Monday-night concert. Lewis’ first EP, “Same Kind of Different,” was released in April 2017, and his single “Be Alright” has made a home in the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 14 weeks. Lewis has cited the band Oasis as a big inspiration for him. His song “Waves” has appeared on popular U.S. television programs like “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Suits.”
Chris D’Elia, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 15-16, at the Moore Theatre. The actor, comedian and Vine alum will bring his Follow the Leader Tour to Seattle for two nights of laughs.
