    This is a Seattle staple- go see a show here. Many famous musicians have graced the stage, and its size keeps the shows intimate. Tip- getting tickets at box office saves tons (no ticketmaster fees).

    If you get to the "Green Room" bar before they open doors, you can skip waiting in the lines for concerts outside. Bar attenders are given numbers when they arrive that let them into the venue first.
