_____________

Every 2nd Saturday in 2020 at Substation in Ballard, 3 - 6pm, FREE, and 21+

This event brings together musicians, music supporters, and music businesses to learn and level up, make genuine connections, and have meaningful discussions about issues that matter to all of us (without having to yell over the music).

Each month, we'll have a different speaker, group exercise, or theme, all of which is influenced by what the people want!

HOSTED BY Showground, Substation, Kaala Seattle and Balanced Breakfast.
_____________

APRIL TOPIC : BOOKING
This month is all about booking! How to get your new band booked, how to climb the booking ladder, how to pitch your own bills to venues and how to be intentional about representation on your bills. We'll have some experienced musicians as well as bookers talk about best practices, their experiences, and answer your burning questions. As usual, the first hour will be devoted to mingling, and we'll start our segment by introducing ourselves so that people can make better connections.

Substation645 NW 45th StSeattle, WA98107

ALL AGES
Doors 8pm

Please note: The show room is an alcohol free zone due to all ages. 21+ may purchase and drink alcohol in the main bar only!

Let’s start the story of Joyce Manor’s Million Dollars To Kill Me at the end of Million Dollars To Kill Me—at the last not-even two minutes of “Wildflowers,” a song about light and beauty and wonder that ends the record like a sunrise after a long exhausting night. It’s not a sing-along single or a bleaked-out slow-burner. It’s brief, understated, and simple but sophisticated as it says what it needs to say in seven sharp lines. And it ends the album with a question instead of an answer, because on an album like this, questions are more honest. If 2016’s Cody was about growing up, then Kill Me is about what happens next—the reckonings with love, money, doubt and confusion, and the hope that persists despite it all. That’s where “Wildflowers” comes in. Says Barry Johnson, band co-founder/guitarist/vocalist: “‘Wildflowers’ is my favorite song on the record—maybe my favorite song I’ve ever written. It’s about how something can be so beautiful it breaks your heart.”

Seaprog Presents April 2020 - Cancelled!

Wednesday April 29th - 7:00pm - Wednesday April 29th - 11:00pm

Seaprog Presents April 2020 - Cancelled!

Substation645 NW 45th StSeattle, WA98107

Event will no longer be happening on April 29 - stay tuned for new date with hopefully same lineup!

UbuludU / Spine Readers (Bellingham) / Super Z Attack Team at the Substation, Wednesday 29 April 8:00pm (doors at 7:00). $10 / door.

In our recurring series of events, Seaprog is pleased to present three Northwest bands in line with our theme of creativity without boundaries. The Seaprog Festival is still several months away, but you can get a fix of psych and prog to hold you over!

UbuludU is a stoner jazz power fusion band from Seattle featuring members of such diverse bands as Abodox, Lesbian, Fungal Abyss, Shitty Person, T Rox, Black Queen, Sam Yoder Geist and the Sacred Ensemble, Diminished Men, Authentic Luxury, and Cantrip.

Spine Readers is a Bellingham band that dwells at the intersection of rock, prog, pop, classical, and more. With members coming from diverse musical backgrounds, they blend a myriad of musical styles through tight-knit compositions and improvisation, forming a haphazardly focused musical collage.

Super Z Attack Team started as a spin-off from the band Zhongyu, a studio-oriented project formed by multi-instrumentalist and composer Jon Davis. With the unusual instrumentation of Stick, bari sax, and drums, the trio incorporates electronics into music that straddles rock energy and the jazzy spirit of improvisation. They relish the intersection of planning and chance, always focusing on maintaining a groove, regardless of what meter they use.

Dallas trio TRUE WIDOW craft patient, rounded music that calls to mind images of foggy dawns and parched fields. Formed in November 2007, TRUE WIDOW released their self-titled debut a year later and immediately caught the ears of the underground. At its core, the music of TRUE WIDOW is powered by the driving, guitar-dense aspects of shoegaze and stoner rock and the heavy, low-moving evocations of ambient music.

William Elliott Whitmore
21+
Doors 8pm

A man armed only with a banjo and a bass drum can be a formidable force, especially if his name is William Elliott Whitmore. With his powerful voice and honest approach, Whitmore comes from the land, growing up on a family farm in Lee County, Iowa. Still living on the same farm today, Whitmore has truly taken the time to discover where his center lies, and from that he will not be moved.

Whitmore has repeatedly carved his own path, honoring the longstanding tradition of folk music throughout his nearly 20 year career, while always allowing his blues, soul and punk rock influences to shine through. Getting his first break opening for his friend’s hardcore band with just a banjo in hand, he would discover bands like The Jesus Lizard, Bad Brains, Lungfish and Minutemen and soon learn to play his own brand of rural, roots music with that same DIY ethic.

William Elliott Whitmore has been back and forth across the United States and to cities around the world. He’s toured with such diverse acts as Frank Turner, Trampled By Turtles, Clutch and Chris Cornell to name a few. He’s appeared on some of the biggest stages around the world including Stagecoach Fest, Byron Bluesfest (Australia) and End of the Road Fest (UK). His willingness to take his show to any playing field has proved invaluable as he turned strangers to diehards with every performance.

The Queensland, Australia-born singer, songwriter, and narrator packed up his life in a suitcase and circled the globe on a near twelve-year and five-continent international trip, as chronicled in photography and music and most significantly, his latest full-length Marigold [Nettwerk Records].
Since dropping his debut EP The Black Tree, Stu’s discography carefully traces every step of his journey. “In 2014 and 2015, I was a vagabond, a nomad, and an adventurer,” he explains. “2017 and 2018 felt a bit more solid. I found a sort of routine in this way of life. I was still traveling and exploring, but I knew more about who I was. 2019 has seen me searching for true love and genuine happiness and connection in a bigger way, not just romantic; but also in a general way in life.”
The eleven tracks on Marigold speak to Larsen’s external and internal progression. In between Marigold and his earlier LP Resolute, Larsen fell in love only to fall into heartbreak and, ultimately, find the inspiration to write straight from the heart.

Tempers, comprised of Jasmine Golestaneh and Eddie Cooper, have been diligentlycarving out their own niche within dark indie, electronica and synth-pop circles. Since the first series of singles, the New York based duo has been solidifying their uniqueidentity of rigorous electronic production blended with instinctual, unleashed vocals. The latest acclaimed release “Private Life” (Dais Records) refines their dreamy mélange into atmospheric songs exploring psychological complexities and modern existence.
Widely influenced by Fleetwood Mac via Kraftwerk to Joy Division and their individual backgrounds in London and New York, the pair evolved quickly into their singular identity on debut album “Services”. Released on cult imprint Aufnahme + Wiedergabe and including underground dancefloor hit “Strange Harvest”, the record led to extensive international touring and sold out shows. Their 2017 EP “Fundamental Fantasy” was released as a result of The Vinyl Factory’s Volcano Extravaganza artist residency on the Aeolian island of Stromboli. Tempers’ versatile interest for the arts led to the 2018 release “Junkspace”, collaborating with famed architect Rem Koolhaas through samples of his interview discussing the deconstructed banality and overlooked grace of 20th century shopping mall culture. The record is available in the world’s most select cultural hotspots, from The New Museum in New York to Walther Kӧnig museum stores throughout Europe, a testament to Tempers’ love for the experimental and original, and their ability to defy categorization.

The Seshen // Real Don Music

Substation645 NW 45th StSeattle, WA98107

The Seshen
Real Don Music
21+

The Seshen is a San Francisco Bay Area six-piece band whose songs exist between the lines: in the space between waking and dreaming, ego and collective consciousness, at that blurred horizon where earth meets sea meets sky.
Anchored by Lalin St. Juste’s sly, silvery vocals (which draw frequent comparisons to Erykah Badu) and cerebral yet danceable rhythms from producer-bassist Akiyoshi Ehara, their music pulls from a deep well of electronic influences, R&B, and indie rock. Drummer Chris Thalmann, keyboard/synth player Mahesh Rao, percussionist Mirza Kopelman and sequencer Kumar Butler make the music three-dimensional, blending live and digital instrumentation for a mercurial, transportive sound. Since 2012, the Seshen’s live show has earned them critical acclaim and a dedicated fanbase on multiple continents, as they’ve shared stages with the likes of Hiatus Kaiyote, PetiteNoir, tUnE-yArDs, and Thundercat.

CYAN (out February 28, 2020 on Tru Thoughts) is the band’s most vulnerable, compelling work to date. Over a spacious, at times tumultuous sonic landscape that leans on live instrumentation, St. Juste sings of a reckoning: a hero’s journey through confusion and self-doubt, depression, and ultimately forging a way out toward the light. CYAN is a story about saving yourself. There’s death, rebirth, and a chance to look square in the mirror for the first time in a long while. To dive deep in search of a new life—one stripped of pretense or protective armor, for better or for worse.



“A lot of artists tout, in their minds at least, that they’re the epitome of cool. But few exemplify that through their music like The Seshen.” – MASS APPEAL

“The Seshen continue to impress with every release.” – OKAYPLAYER

“It's always cause for celebration when there's new music from The Seshen” – AFROPUNK

“A resounding success and refreshing listen…” BANDCAMP

“Beautiful, soulful, and just a little otherworldly…Lalin St. Juste’s voice is the perfect counterpoint, pouring through the spaces between keys and loops like honey” – POPMATTERS
