KEXP Presents: Audioasis Community Partnership & Benefit Show 3/7

By McKenna Haley

March’s Community Partnership Benefit Show is coming up on Saturday, March 7th at The Sunset. This month’s show is in support of Motley Zoo Animal Rescue, a local, foster-based, volunteer run, nonprofit that rescues and finds permanent homes for pets in need.

The only thing that could possibly hold a candle to cute puppies is a whole clan of cool rock stars in one spot playing to raise money for said cute puppies. This month’s show will feature local rock bands Killer Ghost, Ubu Roi, and Versing playing in support of Motley Zoo. Familiarize yourself with these bands before the show this weekend and remember that only good things can happen when you combine local radio, rock bands, and animals in need!

Killer Ghost:
I’ve been following Seattle-based jangly rockers since I first saw them at Victory Lounge over a year ago, and they never fail to put on an entertaining show. It’s everything that I love in a ’60s-inspired California rock band mixed with that nonchalant, we-don’t-care-what-you-think-about-us Seattle attitude.

Ubu Roi:
Ubu Roi can best be described as Seattle Party Rock — and by “Party Rock,” I mean college basement party that definitely includes hanging from the exposed ceiling beams. They make punk rock fun for everyone, even people who just want to stand with their feet planted and bob their head. They have have been focused on finishing their record and it will be great to see these charismatic fellas perform live again as they emerge from their recording-induced hibernation.

Sharlese introduced me to Versing last week and I couldn’t have been more pleased with what I heard. Though they are pretty new on the scene, they can’t come more highly recommended by two members of the Community Partnership Program team at KEXP. Members of Versing describe themselves on their Facebook page as “one of Pacific Northwest’s premier rock and roll bands“ and I think that Sharlese’s email to me descibing them as “super good!” can indicate that they may very well be correct!
