Concerts: Coldplay, NIN, Death Cab and Jay-Z share a bill

The inaugural Pemberton Festival, a huge show 30 minutes north of Whistler, BC, goes on sale Friday.

The bill has impressive headliners: Coldplay, Nine Inch Nails, Jay-Z, Tom Petty, Death Cab for Cutie and the Flaming Lips, to name my favorites. For a Snohomish County resident, the three-day festival could rival Sasquatch, which is closer but still a drive.

Along with that show, tickets for Dave Matthews Band and She Wants Revenge are set to go on sale.

Here’s a glance at those shows and more. I’ll update this as I learn of other shows. Ticket prices don’t include random service charges, parking fees, etc.

  • Pemberton Festival at the Pemberton Festival Grounds, Pemberton, BC, $239.50 Canadian, which converts almost equally to about $236 US. This is an early bird sale for three-day passes. Tickets likely will increase in price after supplies sell out. Tickets for the July 25-27 festival on sale Friday.
  • Carrie Underwood at the Puyallup Fair and Events Center, Puyallup, presale from now to 9:59 a.m. Saturday, $50 to $75. Presale password is “wolf.” Tickets for the Sept. 19 show on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Saturday.

    This silver-plated serving piece is called a box but it doesn't look like one. It held English biscuits, but if the sides opened, the cookies inside would fall down. Each of the shell-shaped bowls had a hinged, pierced flap that kept the heat and the biscuits in place when the sides were opened and became flat bowls to serve the cookies. The flaps are often missing when the biscuit box is sold.-
