It’s going to be an awesome night of music this Saturday at The Sunset Tavern in Ballard, with Audioasis’s resident DJ Hannah Levin hosting special musical guests People Eating People, Blood Red Dancers and D. Black! Plus, each month Audioasis chooses one local charity for proceeds to go to: This month, the Central District’s Forum for Arts & Ideas is spotlighted. For 10 years, the CD Forum has been challenging the definition of Black through their unique Performing Arts and Humanities series. Whether presenting and producing contemporary Black art or encouraging thought and debate around issues that affect our community in Seattle, CD Forum will challenge your assumptions about Black culture.
People Eating People are first on the bill (9:30pm), showcasing Nouela Johnston’s voice and a piano-rock presence you don’t often see. Check out the video below and you’ll know what I mean.
Then, Blood Red Dancers come at you (10:30) with some “dark-folk, junk-jazz, classic country, drinking, pretty girls, pretty girls drinking” kind of music. That’s their description not mine, but still, no way I’m missing that.
And of course, it’s gonna get heavy when D. Black takes the stage (11:30). One of Seattle youngest “conscious” rappers, Black’s 2009 release, Ali’hay, went to the top of a lot of people’s music recommends and it’ll be interesting to see what he drops for The Sunset on a Saturday night.
As always, doors open at 8:30pm and the show begins at 9pm. No kids allowed as The Sunset is 21+ and tickets can be found at Brown Paper Tickets.
Net proceeds benefit CD Forum and major funding for Audioasis comes from New Belgium Brewing Company. Additional support for Audioasis comes from the City of Seattle: Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs, Washington State Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
