Free concert with Jesse Sykes & The Sweet Hereafter tonight!

Starting tonight at 5 PM, for the first time ever, KEXP has partnered with Seattle Center to present KEXP Concerts at the Mural.

Kicking off the new series of sweet summer performances at the Seattle Center Mural Amphitheatre is headliner Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Hereafter with The Maldives. Tomorrow, Saturday, August 16, is Rock Votolato and Palodine.

Next weekend brings two more concerts with Pela and Carter Tanton (of Tulsa) on Friday, August 22, which is also a special celebration of the newly released Live at KEXP, Volume Four. On Saturday, August 23, the series wraps up with Ms. Led and Goodness. Goodness, indeed.

These very early evening concerts are absolutely FREE to the public and smack dab near a beer garden (thanks to Deschutes and New Belgium breweries). Each concert features two bands and an opening set of favorite party songs by a guest star KEXP DJ! Here is the schedule for the entertainment:

FRIDAY, AUGUST 15th:
5pm DJ Don Slack
6pm The Maldives
7pm Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Hereafter
