Brace yourself, Ballard – KEXP arrives this Friday!

On Friday, May 9th, KEXP is broadcasting live from Ballard. Join KEXP DJs and staff as we celebrate Ballard for their win in the 2nd hood-to-hood challenge during last summer’s membership drive.

We kick it off broadcasting the Morning Show with John Richards live from Verite Coffee and Cupcake Royale. Then Cheryl Waters and Kevin Cole keep it going at Sonic Boom Records.

The broadcast goes from 6am to 6pm, including live performances all day long from the likes of Common Market, Arthur & Yu, Throw Me the Statue, Mochipet, Man Plus, Velella Velella, and Cloud Cult. Afterwards, KEXP DJs spin and local bands play live at various Ballard clubs throughout the evening.
