There’s no place like home, said Brandi Carlile. The Maple Valley singer- songwriter returns to Seattle Saturday at the Paramount. She’s also plotting a possible secret show at the Crocodile — all in promotion of her latest critically rated album, “Give Up The Ghost,” out earlier this month. The album boasts a prizewinning lineup — Elton John, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench and Amy Ray from the Indigo Girls. And like her previous work, it showcases her main instrument — her voice — which wails and cracks at her whim.

Join the Seattle Theatre Group tomorrow night as they make history at a sign lighting party for their brand new Paramount replica sign. The iconic blue and gold vertical sign outlined in neon has been in place since 1930 and is weathered and decayed beyond repair. Identical in appearance, the replica was engineered with environmentally responsible materials and energy efficient lighting systems. The new sign will be lit at 6:00 pm tomorrow, October 21, and Seattle Theatre Group invites everyone to the lobby and bar from 5:00 – 7:00 pm to celebrate. The sign lighting party is free and open to the public. To learn more about the replacement project and fundraiser, visit the above link.
