It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for: this Saturday, April 16th, KEXP will throw open the doors to the KEXP New Home with a free, all-ages celebration from Noon until 9:00 PM. Come see the station you helped build! There will be tours, food, beer, and, of course, what matters most: music.
KEXP prides ourselves on being the station where the local music matters, so what better way to kick off Saturday’s celebration than with a few of our favorite Seattle musicians? Starting at Noon in the Gathering Space, Grace Love, Sera Cahoone, Mark Pickerel, DoNormaal, and David Bazan will each take the stage for a short solo performance. From up-and-comers to beloved veterans of the scene, from rap to folk to soul, these artists help reflect what KEXP is all about.
