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+

SHIMMERTRAPS
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.
shimmertraps.bandcamp.com/

ISTHMUSIA
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.
isthmusia.bandcamp.com

PINTO WAGONFIRE
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.

MIND at LARGE IV

Saturday September 28th - 9:00pm - Sunday September 29th - 2:00am

MIND at LARGE IV

Substation645 NW 45th StSeattle, WA98107

Join in a celebration of Infinite Creativity! Dive into an immersive display of light and sound as you discover the power of a MIND AT LARGE.

"Each person is at each moment capable of remembering all that has ever happened to [them] and of perceiving everything that is happening everywhere in the universe. The function of the brain and nervous system is to protect us from being overwhelmed and confused by this mass of largely useless and irrelevant knowledge, by shutting out most of what we should otherwise perceive or remember at any moment, and leaving only that very small and special selection which is likely to be practically useful. According to such a theory, each one of us is potentially MIND AT LARGE."
-- Aldous Huxley, The Doors of Perception

A night full of laughter, dancing, and wonder await you.

The 4th installment of our namesake MIND at LARGE event series features music provided by:
Pressha
PostMatts (Streeter + Pressha)
ÅSE
Abek
Jaderade (special Birthday set)

MIND at LARGE is A Seattle-based artists collective and production team who use organic and electronic mediums to create interactive events and art installations. Our resident DJs and artists include: HYDEF, Jaderade, Meistro, Everett Leftside, Raymond Yamanaka, Goobs, Askim, and Koister.

Behind The Scene: A Music Industry Event

Sunday October 13th - 5:00pm - Sunday October 13th - 9:00pm

Behind The Scene: A Music Industry Event

Substation645 NW 45th StSeattle, WA98107

This event is FREE and there will be SNACKS!

Seattle is known for its music, and despite the challenges of a quickly growing city, many would agree that we have incredible talent and some very strong scenes. But not everyone has the same experience, and there are always opportunities to nourish not just a scene but a family.

We want to bring local musicians, music supporters, and those offering services to musicians together to make deeper connections, discover new resources, and have meaningful discussions about issues that affect all of us (withOUT having to yell over the music).

We're inviting all kinds of musicians. We're inviting documenters, photographers, bloggers, podcasters, bookers and volunteers. And we're inviting peeps who record, mix and master, who make art, who do lights, and who do album art.

We hope to encourage discussion, connection, lots of email and card exchanges, and will find a way to help everyone get in touch after the event. We'll also be taking suggestions for how we can make this event better for ALL OF YOU.

Brought to you by Showground and Kaala Seattle.
