This Friday, KEXP, Seattle Center and No Depression are teaming up to bring you an excellent line up for the first of August's Concerts at the Mural! Take advantage of this unique opportunity to discover your new favorite band or enjoy independent artists you already love for FREE! If that's not enticing enough, this outdoor concert is your chance to seize Seattle's perfect August evenings below the city's most famous landmark before the Fall chill rolls in. KEXP will showcase some of its favorite bands like the retro and danceable JD McPherson, folk rockers Rose Windows and the underground blues of GravelRoad.

JD McPherson puts a new punch in traditional American R&B and blues rock, his debut album has been described as "seductively kickass." Check out Oklahoma's JD McPherson jazzing up KEXP during his recent in-studio performance (I dare you not to dance).

Get a taste of Seattle band Rose Windows' gypsy influenced stylings with "Wartime Lovers" off their debut album The Sun Dogs. Rose Windows recently performed at Capitol Hill Block Party and Sub Pop's Silver Jubilee. This Friday's concert is your chance to see this up and coming band for free, and how often do you get to see a flautist perform live?

Seattle's GravelRoad performed on KEXP a few years back during their time backing up the late blues legend T-Model Ford. Their latest album The Bloody Scalp of Burt Merlin came out this month, and you can hear those tracks live this Friday!
