Sept. 1, 2016; Washington, D.C. – From Pines to Palms, NPR's Pop Culture Happy Hour crew is venturing down the West Coast for a multi city tour. Host Linda Holmes, and panelists Stephen Thompson and Glen Weldon and special guests are bringing the podcast to Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles, breaking down which of the latest movies, books, TV and music are making them happy. Tickets range from $20.00-$27.50, and will be on sale at NPRpresents.org on September 6. As with previous live Pop Culture Happy Hour shows, this tour is expected to sell out quickly.

The Pop Culture Happy Hour West Coast tour features special guests and quiz games celebrating all things we love about pop culture – from the cutting edge to the guilty pleasures, and everything in between. Some of the live shows will also include an interactive pop culture advice segment, drawing listener questions from Pop Culture Happy Hour's Facebook page.

SEATTLE: Monday, October 17 at the Neptune Theatre with special guest Audie Cornish (Host, All Things Considered)

PORTLAND: Wednesday, October 19 at Revolution Hall with special guest Audie Cornish (Host, All Things Considered)

Pop Culture Happy Hour's West Coast tour is the show's first multi-city tour West of the Mississippi. The show recorded its 300th episode this June, and has presented multiple sold-out live shows in Washington, D.C., Brooklyn, and at San Diego Comic-Con.
