Featured are Shelby Earl, The Maldives’ Jason Dodson, Shawn Smith, Naomi Wachira and more! The event, located at the Volterra Drawing Room in Ballard, is all ages, tickets are $15 and doors are at 7PM!

“We’re less than a week away from the ‘Loves Me/Loves Me Not’ shows!” says Marco. “Whether you are in a healthy relationship or slowly dying inside with each moment you think about this bleak existence, come spend your Hallmark holiday with us! Night #1 is all about love songs. Night #2 will be full of heartbreak or break up songs! These are very intimate shows – we only sell 100 tickets each night!”



Marco Collins is one of two Seattle DJ's in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (along with Pat O'Day)

    So glad Super Deluxe made the list. Because of Braden and the boys, I became very involved in the local scene until I went to Arizona in 2008. Now that I am home, I have to find new bands to follow. I miss the days of being out 2-3 nights a week to see bands I knew and who appreciated having me in the audience. Great List – see you Friday.
