KEXP's Gathering Space was created as a place for the community to connect and share their love for music and the arts. It is a welcoming and inviting space for Uptown Arts District neighbors, freelancers, travellers and music fans, providing free wi-fi, comfortable seating, and featuring the music of KEXP as the central soundtrack. 

To KEXP Gathering Space patrons

Given the current guidelines for social distancing, KEXP, and La Marzocco Café, have made the decision to close the KEXP Gathering Space. Light In The Attic Record Shop is open to walk ups or by appointment.

We will be evaluating our timeline for re-opening based on recommendations from state and local health officials.

As we continue to navigate an unprecedented situation, we are profoundly grateful for the support of our guests, listeners, donors and volunteers who we know will join with us to make sure that music thrives no matter what comes our way.  We will remain connected to one another through music, even with physical isolation.

You can still interact with KEXP on air at 90.3 FM, online at KEXP.ORG, on the KEXP app, and on our YouTube channel.  La Marzocco Café, Light In The Attic Record Shop and KEXP communities can stay in touch through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.   

We look forward to seeing you again soon!
