9-22-17 B Nightlife Pick
TW PICK OF THE WEEK: On Saturday, Sept. 23 head out to Cultura Events Center in Tacoma (5602 S. Washington St.) and hear more than 30 hit songs from two legendary bands! Back to the Pacific Northwest for the first time in five years, welcome Jack Russell’s Great White, on tour playing all the hit songs the band made famous. This show is sure to sell out. You can also revisit the legend of Steppenwolf, featuring The Born To Be Wild Tour with former members of Steppenwolf and other rock icons. With new releases about to surface from both bands, this will be one of the last chances to see these guys live at such a low price and intimate venue. In addition to this, you’ll experience the fantastic music of special guests One Sultry Day and Thozz Guyzz. VIP tix offer you the chance to meet the bands, get pics/autographs, and enjoy a view of the concert from above the stage while being catered to with a private bar, food and special seating. Military receive a $5 refund on general admission tickets when you present your military I.D. at the door. Doors open at 6 p.m., show starts at 6:30. Learn more at
