Cascade Announces 10th Anniversary Season

The Cascade Theatre has finished booking more than 30 events for the next year and is now announcing the entire lineup for the 2013-14 Performance Series. Celebrating the theatre’s 10th anniversary season, this year’s star-studded roster is shaping up to be once again the best since the doors opened ten years ago.

In July audiences will have opportunities to see a wide variety of artists including the genre-bending rock band Blue Oyster Cult on July 13th, the “little orchestra” Pink Martini on July 17th and country music star Billy Currington on July 23rd. Rounding out the summer months is the unique alternative rock band CAKE on August 23rd which is sure to be the hottest ticket in town, and then Tower of Power playing their soul music on August 28th.  Tickets are already on sale to the general public for these early season shows.
