The Showbox is one of the best live music venues Seattle has to offer. It’s located across from Pike Place Market and features small to internationally recognized performers. With a capacity of 1100 people it’s not too large for local performers yet big enough to host international superstars as well.

Since 1939 many big names have performed at the Showbox. In the past, legends such as Dizzy Gillespie and Muddy Waters have played here. In more recent years Snoop Dogg, Pearl Jam, Candlebox and The Dave Matthews band have played the Showbox. It pays to check their calendar frequently as you never know who’s going to be on the roster.

Concerts are held just about every night but make sure to get there early as parking can be a little difficult to find. The Showbox also has another location called the Showbox SoDo. Concert information can be found for both venues on the Showbox’s calendar.
