The timeless jazz duo of Tuck Andress and Patti Cathcart, better known simply as Tuck and Patti, are the embodiment of how music and love combine with results that are exponential.
Since 1978, this husband-and-wife team has created a blend of voice and acoustic guitar. Their mastery of the two instruments is beyond compare.
They blend a mix of original tunes with jazz standards and rock favorites. Their version of Jimi Hendrix's "Castles Made of Sand" is awesome.
As always, the opportunity to spend an intimate evening in a club setting with these standout performers is almost unparalleled.
Catch Tuck and Patti at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday; Dimitriou's Jazz Alley, 2033 Sixth Ave., Seattle.
Tickets are $24.50 at www.jazzalley.com or 206-441-9729.
The success of the Southern California punk band Social Distortion can be seen through its endurance for three decades.
Band frontman Mike Ness has maintained his independent voice and, despite changes in the band and time in rehab, improved one year after the next.
Started with an ear toward British punk of its time, the band has evolved into its own form and sound.
"I write songs for myself, and I hope that other people will like them too," Ness said in a press release. "I think every record you make is showing people what you've learned over the past few years. It's showing people, 'This is what I know.'"
What he knows is pretty good.
Toadies and Lindi Ortega will open.
The show starts at 8 tonight; Paramount Theatre, 911 Pine St., Seattle.
Tickets are $31.25 at stgpresents.org or 877-784-4849.
