KEXP Presents: Little Big Show #16 with Låpsley, NAVVI, Aquilo 11/13

Video Roundup, Little Big Show, KEXP Presents

KEXP is teaming up again with Starbucks and STG for the sixteenth edition of Little Big Show, a special concert series created to benefit our city’s arts organizations! This Sunday, November 13th, we’re happy to present Låpsley, NAVVI, and Aquilo at the Neptune Theatre.

Proceeds from the concert are going to Youth in Focus. For 21 years, this non-profit organization has been putting cameras in the hands of low income, at-risk youth, and providing them with talented teachers and nurturing adult volunteer mentors. In this supportive, encouraging community, kids are empowered to "find their voice, identity, creativity, and gain new confidence in their worth and abilities." Doors are at 6:30 PM, and a pair of duos kick things off: UK electro-pop twosome Aquilo and Seattle's own sultry synth band NAVVI. Headlining the evening is British singer/songwriter Låpsley, whose debut LP Long Way Home came out earlier this year on XL Recordings. Wise beyond her mere 20 years of age, Låpsley (real name: Holly Lapsley Fletcher) would write songs at night when she was supposed to be studying for exams. "Every night I’d wake up at two in the morning and go downstairs," she says. "So all those songs were made at night, which is probably why it all sounds really sad and moody." The LP itself details her move from "Liverpool to London to Los Angeles and back again." She explains, "It has two different meanings: the album’s about a long distance relationship, but also if you walk the long way home with someone, you’re trying to spend as much time as you can with them."

Spend time with these terrific artists this Sunday night, and support a local non-profit at the same time. It doesn't get much better than that!
