KEXP Courtyard and Gathering Space // 472 1st Ave N, Seattle WA 98109

JJoin KEXP in Celebrating Kevin Cole! With performances from Thunderpussy, JoyCut, Princess Pulpit, and Encore!, the Kevin Cole Playlist All-Star Band under the musical direction of Paul Hiraga, featuring special guests Molly Sides (Thunderpussy), Carrie Akre (Hammerbox, Goodness, The Rockfords), Steve Mack (STAG), Jessica Dobson (Deep Sea Diver), Damien Jurado, Emily Nokes (TacocaT), Aaron Starkey (Long Dark Moon), Grant Mullen (Naked Giants), and more.

Also, it wouldn’t be a KEXP party without special DJ sets, and the amazing Riz Rollins, Supreme La Rock, and Lace Cadence will join us for this celebration!

Please note that children under 6 years of age can attend without charge as long as they are accompanied by a ticketed adult. 

After 50 years in the music industry, Kevin Cole is stepping away from his day job at KEXP and his weekday role as host of Drive Time. And we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than with a big courtyard party! With live music, food and drinks, and KEXP family and friends of all ages. Come out and say THANK YOU to Kevin Cole for 50 years of bringing the world together through the power of music, and cheer him on as he moves into his next chapter —  and don’t forget, Kevin will still be on the air every Sunday starting in August!
