Seattle's own Car Seat Headrest crashed into the scene with his Matador Records debut, Teens Of Style. (Founding frontman Will Toledo previously released eleven albums independently through Bandcamp, and he's rumored to only be in his early 20s.) Combining wry, abstract lyrics with '90s-influenced lo-fi rock, Toledo has sped into the spotlight. True to Toledo's past, he's already finished another album, Teens of Denial, produced by legendary local producer Steve Fisk (out October 30th, again on Matador). Let's hope we hear some of those new songs when Car Seat Headrest perform at 8:30 PM in the Gathering Space. Scroll down to see the complete schedule of performances, and watch the band in our studios at the end of 2015:

SCHEDULE:Noon – Short solo sets by Grace Love, Sera Cahoone, Mark Pickerel, DoNormaal, David Bazan (Gathering Space)12:30 PM – Strand of Oaks (Gathering Space)1:30 PM – Interview with King County Council Member Joe McDermott (Gathering Space)2:00 PM – Vita Radionova from Teatro Zinzanni (Gathering Space)2:20 PM – Interview with Seattle City Councilmember Sally Bagshaw, representing District 7 (Gathering Space)3:00 PM – TBA (Courtyard)3:40 PM – Samaris (Gathering Space)5:00 PM – Bob Mould (Courtyard)6:30 PM – Hey Marseilles (Gathering Space)7:10 PM – Deep Sea Diver (Courtyard) 8:30 PM – Car Seat Headrest (Gathering Space)
