Well last month was a hoot, wasn’t it? We’re glad #snowpocalyse is behind us and that we can go back to enjoying our awesome city (as well as some events from last month that were cancelled and rescheduled due to the snow). We’re really excited about all the great events happening in and around Seattle this month, so without further adieu, here are some of our favorites:
Friday, March 1 - Robyn @ Paramount Theater
Call your girlfriend because Swedish electro-pop sensation Robyn is back in Seattle! Say hi to budtender Micky if you see her at the show.
Friday, March 1 - GayC/DC @ El Corazón
An all-gay tribute to AC/DC, GayC/DC is the cover band that Seattle didn’t know it needed!
Saturday, March 2 - Laser Bowie @ Pacific Science Center
Who wouldn’t want to get high and watch a live laser show set to the music of David Bowie?!
Thursday, March 7 - Weed School: Western Cultured @ Herbn Elements
Class is in session! Our friends from Western Cultured will be at our dispensary from 4 to 7pm to talk about their smooth and flavorful indoor buds. All their products will be 15% OFF!
Thursday, March 7 - Cherry Glazerr @ Neumos
Indie rock trio Cherry Glazerr will be performing tracks from their latest album, Apocalipstick, at Neumos. If there’s a tall dude with a ponytail blocking your view, that’s probably budtender Dylan (I’m sure he’ll step aside if you ask nicely).
Friday, March 8 - DEFY Wrestling: Dragon Spirit @ Washington Hall
Sure, watching wrestling on TV is fun, but it’s nothing compared to the thrill of being at a match in person. I’m not even a pro wrestling fan, but in person matches are objectively way more fun than watching at home!
Saturday, March 9 - Movie Matinee: Lords of Chaos @ Substation
The new biopic about the controversial founding fathers of black metal was released last month to dismal reviews, but a number of die hard metalheads like myself are still curious to see a fictionalization of these extreme moments in metal history. You could (and probably should) just stay home and watch Until The Light Takes Us instead, but you’ll be in good company if you choose to make it to this film screening.
Sunday, March 10 - “Lake City” Book and Joint Pack Signing @ Herbn Elements
Our pot shop is thrilled to host an exciting moment in book marketing and cannabis marketing history: come by on Sunday March 10th between 4pm and 6pm to meet Thomas Kohnstamm, author of Lake City, and get your book and/or Lake City joint pack signed! Thomas will also be joined by Saint Lawrence, owner of Saints Joints.
Sunday, March 10 - "Lake City" Book Reading @ Seattle Public Library, Lake City Branch
Back in January we promoted the release of Seattle author Thomas Kohnstamm’s new novel set here in our scenic locale of Lake City. This month, Kohnstamm will be reading from his novel, Lake City, at the Lake City branch of the public library from 2 to 3:30pm. Don’t forget to stop by our dispensary afterward so you can pick up a limited edition Lake City joint pack and get it signed!
Thursday, March 14 - Weed School: Mr. Moxey's Mints + Spot @ Herbn Elements
Class is in session! The folks from Botanica Seattle (producers of Mr. Moxey's Mints, Spot chocolates, and Journeyman edibles) will join us from 4-7pm to talk about their diverse array of premium edibles. All Mr. Moxey's Mints and Spot products will be 15% off!
March 14-17 - Emerald City Comic Con @ Washington State Convention Center
Put out the bat signal and grab your spandex, because it’s time for Emerald City Comic Con! Assistant Manager Nathan will be working the Top Shelf Toys table this year, so ask him to do his Brad Garrett impression if you see him (trust me, it’s worth it).
The yearly celebration of all things pop culture will be held at the Washington State Convention Center; if you can’t get in this year, it’s still worth the trip downtown for the people watching opportunities.
Saturday, March 16 - Monster Jam @ Centurylink Field
Saturday! Saturday! Saturday! (vroooom) It’s Monster Jam at Centurylink Field (vroooom)! Featuring monster trucks like Brodozer, Earthshaker, and the legendary Grave Digger! Bring your friends, bring your enemies, but most importantly, bring some serious ear protection because it’s gonna get LOUD! Our Assistant Manager Jamie will be there, presumably with a beer in both hands (and/or one of those beer-dispensing hats).
Saturday, March 16 - Lucky @ Tacoma Dome
Several of our budtenders are looking forward to Lucky this month: a Saint Patrick’s Day themed EDM show. Be safe, drink lots of water, and say hi to budtender Daniel if you run into him!
Tuesday, March 19 - Cypress Hill @ Showbox Sodo
If you’re reading an events blog on a cannabis dispensary’s website but have never been to a Cypress Hill show... you’re messing up! Take some hits from the bong, load up on prerolls, and get down to Showbox Sodo because 4/20 is coming early this year!
Thursday, March 21 - Weed School: Leafwerx & PAX Era @ Herbn Elements
Class is in session! Stop by our shop between 4 and 7pm to meet the folks from Leafwerx and PAX. Get your PAX device engraved for FREE! Plus we have a special deal from 4-7pm: get a Leafwerx pod and a PAX Era together for $40!
Thursday, March 21 - Tiffany Haddish @ Paramount Theater
Famous for her role in Girls Trip and The Last OG, laugh-out-loud comedic actress Tiffany Haddish is performing stand-up comedy at The Paramount for her adoring fans.
Friday, March 22 - The Black Queen @ Chop Suey
Featuring former members of Nine Inch Nails and Dillinger Escape Plan, The Black Queen is the sort of dark & mellow synthwave band you’d expect to hear at your local goth bar. Once more, say hi to Dylan if you see him at the show, and let him know if he’s blocking your view.
Saturday, March 23 - Metal Yoga @ Substation
Some people relax by smoking weed and listening to metal (me), and others relax by smoking weed and doing yoga (my girlfriend). This March, Substation is giving us both the opportunity merge our relaxation techniques. There’s no mention of what sub-genre they’ll be playing, but it’s gotta be doom metal, right?
Monday, March 25 - Vince Staples @ Showbox Sodo
Formerly of Odd Future fame, talented rapper Vince Staples has risen in popularity over the last few years and has been featured on tracks by artists like Tyga, Gorillaz, and Jhene Aiko. Catch the LBC native at Showbox Sodo on March 25th.
Thursday, March 28 - Weed School: Smokey Point Productions @ Herbn Elements
Class is in session! The team from Smokey Point Productions will be here from 4 to 7pm to talk about their indoor flower, distillate cartridges, and shatter-infused prerolls!
Friday, March 29 - Children of Bodom @ El Corazón
Hailing from Finland, melodic death metal icons Children of Bodom are known amongst headbangers for their proggy, fast-paced guitar riffs that sound like an arcade game from Hell. These guys put on a great show, so don’t miss out!
Saturday, March 30 - Roger McNamee: Zucked @ The Summit
Roger McNamee— a tech investor and former mentor of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg— will talk about his firsthand experiences with the company’s “malignant applications” during the 2016 election, as well as the "existential threat [Facebook] poses to our public health and political order."
March 30-31 - Vegfest @ Seattle Center
Look, you’re gonna get the munchies either way… you may as well eat something healthy and/or plant based!
Those are our favorite Seattle events for March 2019! Thanks for reading, and a special thanks to my Herbn Elements colleagues for their contributions to this month’s blog. We hope you’ll come and see us for all your smoking, vaping, and dabbing needs before you venture out to any of these fun events.
