Since its construction in 1962 for the World's Fair, Seattle Center has been the site for many memorable music moments. With music festivals like Bumbershoot and Folklife, and venues like Key Arena and the Vera Project, some amazing bands have traveled through this local landmark... and when KEXP moves into our new home there, we're excited to become part of its musical history!
Tonight, KEXP hosts our first event at our new home with All In: The Rally for KEXP’s New Home from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the Northwest Rooms. Join us for a live performance from The Cave Singers, with a beer garden, and remarks from John Richards of The Morning Show.
As KEXP embarks on this next chapter of Seattle Center music history, we asked DJs, staff, and local music scene luminaries to share some of their own personal memories of seeing music at this historical spot.
Mary Timony is back with a new project, Ex Hex, whose debut album is appropriately titled Rips, 'cause this does. The former Helium frontwoman/Wild Flag guitarist brings her trademark shred to the single "Don’t Wanna Lose." Rips comes out 10/7 on Merge Records. [Stereogum]
