$8 General Admission / Members

Series - Live Shows


The Shadow Council is Seattle’s most dangerous unsanctioned legislative body. It’s a satirical forum hosted by Brett Hamil (of The Seattle Process). Expert Witnesses present findings on topics both local and national, and the Council submits proposed legislation, public comment, questions and complaints into the Democracy Bucket™.


  • Award-winning author Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore to present a piece of Shadow Legislation
  • A BURIEN INVASION to celebrate the progressive city council candidates who beat back a racist, xenophobic Trumpian takeover of our city to the south in the last election
  • Recently elected councilmember Krystal Marx and councilmember Lauren Berkowitz, the tireless advocate who was formally censured for live-Tweeting the proceedings of city council meetings to make them more accessible to her community

Expect a level of goofy comedy and smart conversation untouched by anything else in Seattle.” – Crosscut
