Reykjavik Calling returns to Seattle for a third year of exciting performances by some of the best musicians and bands emerging from Seattle and Iceland. This event of cross-cultural musical exploration has struck a chord with Seattleites in past years. This year, the FREE show at Neumos will feature performances from:
- Apparat Organ Quartet (Iceland)
- The Redwood Plan(Seattle)
- Sudden Weather Change (Iceland)
- Ásgeir Trausti (Iceland)
Presented by KEXP 90.3, fans can once again expect a truly unique night of music, with a new twist. In an effort to explore creative ways for these two distinct cultures to collaborate, each headlining band will be paired with a notable author who will be writing lyrics for a song that the band will premiere at Reykjavik Calling. Apparat Organ Quartet will be working with Seattle author Ryan Boudinot and a local Seattle band will be paired with Reykjavik-born poet and novelist Sjón. Seattle bands will be announced online prior to the show.
Admission to Seattle’s third annual Reykjavik Calling is 21+ and FREE to the public until capacity is reached. Doors open at 8:00 p.m. For more information, visit Neumos.com.
