Barsuk Records celebrates 15 years | Festival preview

Seattle’s Barsuk Records, which specializes in peppy, smart pop music with a focus on songwriting (Postal Service, Ben Gibbard, The Long Winters), is in the middle of celebrating its 15th anniversary all over town this weekend, with a slew of concerts that, unfortunately, are mostly sold out.

You never know when a ticket might turn up, though we’ve been cautioned that the Saturday show at Neumos is hopeless. “Special guests” (Gibbard?) are promised for the Saturday show at the Tractor.

If you can find a ticket, the proceeds go to a good cause — the cancer-support group Gilda’s Club Seattle.

Here’s the lineup:

The Long Winters, David Bazan, Minor Alps, Sunset Valley, 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Neptune Theatre, 1303 N.E. 45th St., Seattle; sold out (877-784-4849 or www.stgpresents.org).

Phantogram, Menomena (pictured above), Maps & Atlases, Yellow Ostrich, Cymbals Eat Guitars, Say Hi, doors open at 7 p.m. Saturday at Neumos, 925 E. Pike St., Seattle; sold out (206-709-9442 or www.neumos.com).

Jesse Sykes & The Sweet Hereafter, Rocky Votolato, Laura Gibson (solo), guests, doors open at 6:30 p.m. Sunday at the Tractor Tavern, 5213 Ballard Ave. N.W., Seattle; sold out (789-3599 or www.tractortavern.com).

Ra Ra Riot, Aqueduct, doors open at 9:30 p.m. Sunday at the Sunset Tavern, 5433 Ballard Ave. N.W., Seattle; sold out (206-784-4880 or www.sunsettavern.com).
