Death Cab for Cutie is an American alternative rock band formed in Bellingham, Washington in 1997. The band is composed of Ben Gibbard, Nick Harmer, Jason McGerr, Dave Depper, and Zac Rae. Death Cab for Cutie rose from being a side project to becoming one of the most exciting groups on the indie rock scene of the 2000’s, with their emotive songwriting and cross-genre sound landing somewhere between indie and emo. They have been nominated for eight Grammy Awards, including Best Rock Album for their most recent release, 2015’s Kintsugi. Their ninth studio album will be released later this year.
This event is in celebration of the Paramount Theatre’s 90th Birthday, and we are making it free to STG patrons to thank them for their support. We realize the demand for this show exceeds venue capacity so to equitably distribute the tickets to fans, we are using a product called Verified Fan. This system ensures that tickets do not get in the hands of BOTS or the resale market. Also, local patrons will get priority (those living in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, and British Columbia).
How do I register?
Using a desktop or laptop (not the mobile TM app), patrons will need to register for an access code through Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan® system from now through May 18 at 10am PT. Go to and connect to your Ticketmaster account to register. If you are verified and selected you will receive an email notification on Monday, May 21. You will then receive a text with an access code and ticket link on Tuesday, May 22. Once the link is live, you can use the access code to unlock the opportunity to claim two tickets to the event.
If you have been randomly selected to receive a code it will unlock the ability to access tickets. However, tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are not guaranteed. Registering for the program does not guarantee that you will receive an access code for the Verified Fan on sale.
How will I receive my tickets?
Once you have claimed your tickets, you will receive an email confirmation. Tickets are non-transferable and may only be picked up in-person at the venue on the night of the show using valid ID. Patrons must arrive by 8pm. Any unclaimed tickets will be released to other patrons. Seating will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
How do I know if my Verified Fan registration was submitted?
Once registered you will receive a confirmation email. Receiving a confirmation email only means your registration has been submitted. It does not mean you will receive an offer code. Fans may only register once. Multiple registrations will disqualify you from the Verified Fan event.
Please note: Registering does NOT guarantee you will be verified, receive a code or have the ability to claim Verified Fan tickets.
