KEXP has announced details behind their 7th Annual Yule Benefit, happening this year on Saturday, December 12 at Neumos in Seattle. Showcasing select favorites from the Northwest, concert-goers will not only be treated to excellent performances by the likes of The Thermals, The Cave Singers, The Builders And The Butchers, and Grand Hallway, they’ll also be supporting KEXP.
For those of you not in the know: Seattle’s premier radio station, KEXP is a non-profit independent station supported by its listeners. Broadcasting at 90.3FM, you can also catch them online at kexp.org.
If you’re in the Seattle area, head down to Moe Bar, the nearest Rudy’s Barbershop, or select QFC stores for advance tickets. They’ll run you $20, or you can get them show-night for $22. Yeah, they’ll also be providing them at Ticketswest, but where’s the fun in that?
The 7th Annual Yule Benefit is a 21+ show and doors open at 8pm. Above photo is Pete Quirk of The Cave Singers; courtesy the amazing Seattle photographer Jenny Jimenez. Here’s a track from each band on the line-up:
