This summer, KEXP and Seattle Center extend their Mural concert series for 5 weekends through July and August. On the bill are an eclectic spread of bands ranging from Portland’s 6 piece harmonious Blitzen Trapper (July 31) to the tight rhymes of Seattle’s Dyme Def. (Aug 7) This year’s series also incorporates the famed KEXP BBQ into the fold. A previously “private” event that I believe has gotten too big to fit in either the KEXP parking lot or Denny Park across the street. The show are mostly on Friday nights on the Mural lawn (aka Bumbershoots Blues Stage – directly under the Needle) with the exception of the KEXP BBQ show which is in the same location on a Saturday night.
Take advantage of the warm summer nights and take in the tunes from some of KEXP’s favorite artists. The five FREE all-ages shows (KEXP BBQ has a 12+ beer garden) are tailored to the culturally curious who seek to discover the best of the area’s independent music scene.
Friday, August 7 from 6 – 8 PM
