About the artists:
Lemolo is the dream pop brainchild of Seattle musician Meagan Grandall. Grandall formed Lemolo in 2009, inspired by her hometown neighborhood of Lemolo Shore Drive and the beatify of the Pacific Northwest. The band has since been named one of the Best Seattle Bands by Seattle Magazine, was voted Best New Band by City Arts Magazine and was just named one of the Top Bands Rocking Seattle Music by Seattle Magazine. The sophomore Lemolo album, Red Right Return, is out now after continual sold out performances in Seattle and tours throughout the US and Europe.
Heavenly harmonies The Seattle Times
Loch Lomond boast a well-plotted dynamism and a knack for intriguing storytelling. Intimately folksy but compellingly orchestral" - Spin
Loch Lomond deserve all the accolades they are getting. - Brooklyn Vegan
Singer Ritchie Youngs earnest demeanor belies his enormous voice, and the bands varying instruments flesh out his songs perfectly. - Ear Farm
Navvi - Hardly anyone on the Seattle electronic scene does intimacy quite like NAVVI does. In the two and a half years since they started asking about our weekend plans, the duo of Brad Boettger and Kristin Henry has worked slowly and steadily on perfecting the tug of war that makes their vision of relationship so convincing. Working with bass-heavy electronic textures, reverberating guitars, and haunting, airy vocals, they have all the makings of something inviting, warm, soft, and easy to love. But haunted love and daily battles with insecurity add a chill to the vibe, making NAVVI as relatable as they are digestible. With a recipe like this, it could (potentially) be difficult to master the boom and the bust to make something big without losing the personable nature that has made their carefully crafted pieces so dear. But with their full length debut, Omni, out now on Hush Hush Records, NAVVI follows up an EP and a string of singles with a well-balanced and addictive entry point. Omni is both a testament to the young bands growth and hard evidence that they are headed for big things. Designed for long drives and warm summer nights, Omni gives us a dance record for the introspective a brilliant projection of color onto a world that has a tendency for bleakness.
IMPORTANT & UNUSUAL EVENT DETAILS:
SEATING: To create a "giant living room" effect we offer an unusual concert experience with informal seating on the floor up front surrounding the stage and lots of pews, benches, and chairs around the space.
We highly recommend you bring blankets and cushions to create a more comfortable experience whether sitting on the floor or seats. Quiet and non-messy snacks/picnics are allowed. No outside alcohol please.
NOISE: Please actually silence all devices. Turn off vibrate, rings, etc. NO CAMERAS WITH MECHANICAL SHUTTERS (This goes for Press too unless approved to shoot during applause only.) That means silent digital cameras/photos are ok but we really recommend you enjoy most of the show through your own 'retina screens'.
Anyone exhibiting loud or disruptive behavior during the event will be asked to leave.
Absolutely no talking during the performances please, this room is very live acoustically and everyone will hear you. :-) We are unable to provide a separate room for viewing this event if you are not able to be silent, so please plan accordingly before purchasing tickets. These shows are very very pin drop quiet so please consider that when deciding what ages are appropriate. No cry room available at this venue and even voices in the lobby will be heard in the concert space.
