KEXP Mural Concert Series: Featuring Blitzen Trapper and Fruit Bats!

5728

Yesterday the temperature rose to a sweltering 102 degrees in Seattle. Just last summer, we were calling June “Junuary” and cursing the gods/goddesses for our cold, rainy existence. Although most have been complaining of the excessive heat (me included), it’s not incredibly bad. We actually get to indulge in a few rare opportunities because of this weather. We can go night swimming! We can eat at the few restaurants here that have outdoor patios! We can leave our sweaters/jackets at home when we go out at night! We can drink iced coffee!

We can also go to outdoor festivals and shows without fear of rain, which brings me to the topic at hand. Seattlites, I urge you to embrace this South Georgia weather, and celebrate by attending the KEXP Mural Concert Series this weekend! Our boys, Blitzen Trapper will be performing on Friday 7/31 along with Throw Me the Statue and DJ EL Toro.

Fruit Bats (new album out on 8/4!) will be playing Friday 8/21, with our good friends The Moondoggies (Hardly Art!), Johnny and the Moon, and DJ Hannah Levin.

This concert is the first in a series curated by KEXP, all of which are FREE and all ages. There will be a concert every Friday from July 31 to August 21, from 5 PM to 8 PM on the lawn of the Seattle Center Mural Amphitheatre. The annual KEXP Barbeque is part of the series, and will take place on Saturday August 8, 2 PM to 9 PM.
