The fabulous Century Ballroom dance floor is open for Western Swing dancing July 13, and the best Western Swing band in America is playing the tunes!
Asleep at the Wheel comes to the Century Thursday, July 13. Show is at 9 p.m., with Jo Miller and her Burly Roughnecks as the first act.
The show is $28 advance, $33 at the door, and I expect it to be worth every cent. Asleep at the Wheel is the contemporary incarnation of a 1940s-style, high energy Texas swing band. About 15 years ago I had the chance to dance to this band at the old Parker's disco up on Aurora, and it was the best two-stepping I've done since moving to Seattle 21 years ago. Between the hardcore C&W dancers in the area and the new Western Swing dancers coming from Seattle's hot Cajun/Zydeco scene, this should be a fabulous time with lots of great dancing. Polish up those boots!
