Tomorrow night, KEXP and Seattle Center bring more amazing music to the Mural Amphitheater lawn with Concerts at the Mural! These shows are always FREE and all ages, with a beer garden for those of you 21 and older. (Please note: the bar is cash only!) Gates open at 5:00 PM, so don’t dilly dally!

Local duo Crater will be starting the show off right with their hypnotic dark electro-pop, layering ethereal vocals over industrial-tinged rhythms. Songs from their debut album, Talk to Me So I Can Fall Asleep, will have the opposite affect: just try to stop dancing.

Portland’s Radiation City will keep the party going with their synth-driven sound. Their most recent release, Synesthetica, found them moving in a more futuristic direction, while still retaining their dreamy ’60s-style vocals. Lay back on the lawn and let their sparkling pop hooks take you away!

And as the sun begins to set, The Mynabirds will take the stage! This Omaha-based band led by Laura Burhenn (ex-Georgie James) will steal your heart with their lovelorn lyrics layered over a unique sound whose influence spans genres: R&B, hip hop, shoegazer dream-pop. It’s all tied together with Burhenn’s husky vocals. The band’s most recent album, Lovers Know, came out on their hometown label of Saddle Creek. And fun Seattle fact: Burhenn was a touring vocalist for the Postal Service alongside Jenny Lewis!
