Boy, we miss live music and we really hope that when it’s safe to return to music venues, they’ll still be there for us. Keep Music Live Washington has been doing great work since the pandemic started last year to organize relief fundraising for music venues in Seattle and Washington state at greatest risk of permanently closing. This week, they present #BandTogetherWashington, a virtual livestream showcase celebrating Washington’s live music culture and its future.
Hosted by Sir Mix-A-Lot and Rachel Flotard, Band Together Washington will feature concert rarities, discussions, live performances, and good times with some of Washington State’s most celebrated faces and artists, including:
Ali Hedrick, Allen Stone, Brandi Carlile, Cedric Walker, Chris Ballew, Clinton Fearon & Boogie Brown Band, Daniel Pak, Duff McKagan Eva Walker, Foo Fighters, Gifted Gab, Jeremy Enigk, Joel McHale, Karli Ingersoll, Kathleen Hanna, Macklemore, Manny Cawaling, Matt Cameron, Megan Jasper, Mike McCready, Nate Mendel, Neko Case, Pearl Jam, The Presidents of the United States of America, Rainn Wilson, Shannon Welles, The Black Tones, Tomo Nakayama, Tres Leches, Trey Many, Visqueen, Walking Papers and more!
“We are so thankful to see our community rally together to support the small, independently-owned music venues in Washington state. Many of the artists participating in Band Together Washington got their start in these small venues,” said Manny Cawaling, Board President for Keep Music Live. “Band Together Washington will be a celebration Washington’s live music culture and its future.”
