Event Spotlight: 5th Annual KEXP BBQ


More details have been revealed about the 5th Annual KEXP BBQ on Saturday, August 18, on the lawn behind South Lake Union Discovery Center at 101 Westlake Avenue North in Seattle.

Just announced, local hip hop duo Blue Scholars will perform, accompanied by a full band! If you’ve seen them before, like at the Capitol Hill Block Party, you know how amazing they can be. Just check out this video from Saturday (and then imagine them backed by eight band members!):

During each show on tour, as the band performs, Connie Minowa and Scott West each paint a full canvas on stage. The KEXP BBQ will be no exception! Come listen — and watch — this emotionally stirring and multi-talented band.

On top of that, you also get rousing sets by anthemic Brooklyn-based rockers Pela, local dark and grooving indie folksters Cave Singers (featuring ex-members of Pretty Girls Make Graves and Hint Hint), and Seattle’s latest hot commodity The Blakes.
