Little Big Show #9 Preview: Cloud Cult and Benjamin Verdoes

It’s that time of the year again: KEXP teams up with Starbucks and STG to present Little Big Show #9, this Friday, May 16th at The Neptune Theatre with Cloud Cult and Benjamin Verdoes. 100% of ticket sales go to the youth programs at Hugo House, which you can read more about here.



Opening the show will be Seattle’s own Benjamin Verdoes, former frontman for Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band. Earlier this year, he released the solo album, The Evil Eye, an elegant release of chamber-pop with intimate, auto-biographical lyrics. As he mentions in this interview on the KEXP Blog, to him, “the record is a story of triumph and endurance.”

It’s only fitting that Verdoes opens for beloved KEXP band Cloud Cult, a band who epitomize “triumph and endurance” in their own way. It’s hard to believe the Minnesota-based band hadn’t performed fully-acoustic until last year’s Arts in Nature Festival at Seattleā€™s Camp Long (which you can read more about on the KEXP Blog here), but the set inspired their most recent release, Unplug. Their performance on Friday night won’t be all acoustic, but we’re excited to hear their heartfelt songs, in any fashion!

Tickets on are sale now for this all ages show. Get all the details here.
