The Black Keys, Broken Bells, Cake to play Deck the Hall Ball

The annual Deck the Hall Ball, which is put on by local alt-rock institution 107.7 The End, will be held at WaMU Theatre on Dec. 8 this year and it boasts a lineup of some of the more prominent names in modern rock.

The show will include The Black Keys, Broken Bells, Jimmy Eat World, Cake, Temper Trap and Sleigh Bells. Tickets go on sale Nov. 6 and cost $44.50.

The last time the Black Keys were in town they played an extremely sold-out concert at the Paramount Theatre on Oct. 2. The band could’ve easily played a two-night stand at the Paramount considering that they sold out the venue three months in advance of last month’s show. WaMu’s bigger stage is a natural progression for the popular blues duo from Akron, Ohio.

The End has a history of booking top-notch talent for its holiday fest. Previous Deck performers from years past include Franz Ferdinand, Foo Fighters, Hole, The Killers, Death Cab For Cutie and Spoon. Last year’s Deck the Hall Ball was headlined by Muse and it included sets by Visqueen, Vampire Weekend, Phoenix, Metric and  30 Seconds to Mars.

Celebrate the Fourth with The Long Winters, The Saturday Knights and The End

Local alt-rock mainstay 1077 The End is hosting a Fourth of July part over at its beach house on Alki Beach and it is free.

The fun begins at 5 p.m. with a performance by The Saturday Knights, the party hip-hop band that released the ultimate soundtrack to a summer in Seattle, also know as their debut album “Mingle,” last week.

Also on the beach house bill are local indie stars The Long Winters. The John Roderick fronted band is expected to perform new material from its upcoming album. The band, which is on Barsuk Records (former home to former Bremerton resident Ben Gibbard’s band Death Cab For Cutie), is also performing at the Showbox at the Market on July 5.
