Beat Blast: Macklemore, Nathan Adrian and a 125th birthday

Bremerton’s biggest concert of the year is Wednesday. That’s when Ben Haggerty, AKA Macklemore, will perform with Ryan Lewis at the Admiral Theater.

The show’s 999 tickets were purchased within an hour of going on sale. Pacific Avenue out front of the theater will also close down for the evening and rumor has it the hip hop artist himself will sign autographs there in the late afternoon.

It’s been a busy week in Bremerton. Here’s the other things on the beat blast video (above) this week:

Bremerton-born Nathan Adrian brought his Olympic swimming medals back to town Monday in a festive and emotional homecoming;

The Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, long Kitsap’s largest employer, turns 125 this coming month. (Stories to come this weekend in your Kitsap Sun.)

The football season is upon us and I spent some time at the Bremerton High School team’s practice (the Kitsap Sun’s prep football guide is out Thursday.)

The Blackberry Festival is back Labor Day weekend for its 27th year.
