KEXP Presents Hood-to-Hood 2015: West Seattle Day


After winning KEXP’s annual Hood-to-Hood Challenge by a razor-thin margin of $100 in 2014, West Seattle will host KEXP’s Hood-to-Hood Day on Friday, May 29th. KEXP welcomes music lovers from all neighborhoods to join us from noon to 6:00 PM for a live broadcast of The Midday Show with Cheryl Waters and The Afternoon Show with Kevin Cole, featuring live performances by John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats, Australian band Miami Horror, Hop Along, and Telekinesis, plus a free street festival with bands, booths, and a beer garden serving Redhook.

This event is FREE, all ages, and open to the public!

The fun doesn’t stop after the broadcast is over: KEXP’s own DJs plan to take over the neighborhood, spinning at various venues around West Seattle – plus two great nighttime concerts!
