It’s hard to believe it’s already August, but that just means it’s time for our Concerts at the Mural series! Every Friday in August, KEXP teams up with Seattle Center to bring you FREE, all ages entertainment on the Mural Amphitheater lawn.
And this Friday, August 1st, we’re kicking things off in a major way with our Donor Appreciation Night. KEXP is listener-powered, and without our donors, an event like this is impossible. We’ve paired up the adorable Anacortes, WA quartet Cumulus with the frenetic percussive-pop of Kithkin to open the show. And who better than “the Screaming Eagle of Soul” to headline: Charles Bradley and his Extraordinaires, all the way from Brooklyn, New York. If you’ve seen Bradley in concert before, you know this man gives an incredible, passionate performance — it’s the same passion KEXP has for music, and we’re grateful to YOU for powering our airwaves, our concerts, and our community events, like this one!
In fact, we want to look out on the Mural Amphitheatre lawn and see a sea of KEXP t-shirts, so if you’re a donor, wear any KEXP t-shirt you have to the concert to show everyone you power the station where the music matters! Each donor who sports a KEXP tee and stops by the KEXP tent will be entered into giveaways for special KEXP swag. See you under the Space Needle!
