When it’s completed, KEXP’s New Home at Seattle Center will enable us to serve everyone better: music lovers like you, the city of Seattle, and the artists that make “music that matters.” And right now, in a terrific show of support for the biggest undertaking in KEXP history, some heavyweight local musicians are doing their best to encourage you to help build our New Home. Donate right now to the All In Music Match, and your gift will go even further, thanks to additional funds from a pool of artists including Pearl Jam, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Dave Matthews.
Since the All In Music Match launched on July 10, the KEXP Community has helped us raise more than 47 percent of our $200,000 goal for donations from music lovers. If you’ve made your gift already, thank you! If not, please don’t delay—this opportunity to maximize your money only lasts a few days more.
I’d also like to express our gratitude to all the artists that have helped spread the word about the All In Music Match. A host of local notables including Sera Cahoone, Erik Blood, and Adra Boo of Fly Moon Royalty took time out to record on-air testimonials, Michael Lerner of Telekinesis pasted on a fake mustache for a promotional video, and the outpouring of support on social media has been touching—and occasionally hilarious. My favorite tweet about #KEXPmusicmatch so far comes courtesy of @Radjaw: “What better antennae for @KEXP than the Space Needle?”
