Look Up Fest: Mars

Saturday September 7th - 4:00pm - Sunday September 8th - 1:00am

Look Up Fest: Mars

Substation645 NW 45th StSeattle, WA98107

🔴BUY TICKETS: lufm.eventbrite.com
🔴EVENT WEBSITE: look-up-records.com/mars

Look Up Fest: Mars will showcase a curated selection of 12 psychedelic dream pop bands from the Pacific Northwest and beyond on Saturday 9/7 at Substation.

Look Up Fest, the lodge for high strangeness in the PNW, is a bi-annual mini music festival organized by paranormal label Look Up Records.

For our 3rd Look Up Fest, we’re channeling the red sky giant, featuring space-age music plus Martian experiences and a terraforming mission.

In addition to great live music, attendees can expect mind-bending visuals, immersive Martian environments, a photo booth, paranormal stories, and alien surprises only Look Up Fest would concoct.

"A brand-new confab of music, visual art, good beer and strange vibes..." — Jonathan Zwickel, City Arts

There is currently no music on Mars. There are no Martian artist grants. There are no venues, no recording studios, not even a CD player. It’s depressing AF. We want to change that.

We’re putting together a mixtape that colonists can take with them when they go to Mars. It’s going to be a long, isolated journey, so we might as well entertain them. The album will be made of songs from musicians that perform at Look Up Fest: Mars and will be available for sale at the event.

The mixtape for astronauts will be mailed to SpaceX, NASA, and other entities proposing Martian travel, along with a message of goodwill:

Dear Astro-travelers,

Hey there. We like what you’re doing. We think it’s cool. We just want to make sure Martian colonies and other future terraformed human existences are full of art, inspiration, and retain goodwill toward all lifeforms. We’re sending you this mixtape to play when you’re bored, and to share with other cosmic beings you may meet. Let’s keep space safe.

Always looking up,

— Seattle-based weirdos

Before we terraform Mars, there's a lot we can do to improve living ecosystems on Earth. For this event, our raffle will be raising funds for the Beacon Food Forest (BFF). The BFF is a unique open harvest model, a community-supported urban garden that’s completely open to the public to forage. Their mission: "To improve public health by regenerating our public land into an edible forest ecosystem. We work to reduce agricultural climate impact, improve our local food security, provide educational opportunities, and celebrate growing food for the benefit of all species.”

For more event information about Look Up Records, band bios, Spotify event playlist, and volunteer/partner submission forms, please contact us below or visit look-up-records.com/mars

Look Up Fest is a 100% artist-run, community-driven event. We need your help to make this happen! Any other ideas, collabs, partnerships, sponsors, or art submissions are welcome to use the submit form located here: www.look-up-records.com/mars

Seaprog Presents: Shimmertraps - Isthmusia - Pinto Wagonfire

Thursday September 26th - 8:00pm - Thursday September 26th - 11:30pm

Seaprog Presents: Shimmertraps - Isthmusia - Pinto Wagonfire

Substation645 NW 45th StSeattle, WA98107

The autumn 2019 edition of the quarterly Seaprog Presents concert series proffers a savory sampling of some of the Salish Sea's finest adventurous progressive bands: Shimmertraps (Bellingham), Isthmusia (Kingston), and Pinto Wagonfire (greater Seattle). Please join us in supporting local creative rock music year-round!

8 p.m. - $10 - 21+

Hazy, lush synths combined with dreamy vocals, vibrant guitars, driving bass, and dancing drums form Shimmertraps, a Bellingham-based five-piece dream-pop project. Often eliciting the youthful and melancholy emotions of summer nights, Shimmertraps is sure to impress with their genre-bending mid-fi audio and visuals.

Isthmusia (Is-th-mew-zhuh) is a three-piece instrumental progressive rock group formed in Kingston, Washington in 2011. On guitar is Matt Robison, on bass is Logan Hixson, and on drums, Michael Esparo. Freshly back from a two-year hiatus, the band will perform all new music. Expect clean melodic rock
with complex finger-tapping passages and constantly shifting odd meters.

Pinto Wagonfire is a Seattle band with its individual roots spanning over three decades of writing and performance. Purely an instrumental outfit at this time, their brand of Progressive hard rock is riff-centric and slightly cosmic, foraging the spirit of their past collectives with new, energetic creativity, and a collective love of Progressive music.
