It's All Good in the Hood: KEXP reps W. Sea on May 21st!

Hop on your hog, rent that Zipcar, bus it on out to Skylark on Friday, May 21st, when West Seattle celebrates its victory in KEXP's Hood-to-Hood Challenge! No, it had nothing to do with switchblades down by the harbor. Our triumph represents our community's willingness to support Seattle's rockinest radio station. During pledge drives, the station pits neighborhoods against each other to see who can raise the most bread. And guess who's got the dough this time!
Since we won, KEXP is sponsoring and hosting shows all over the neighborhood, including our killer triple-bill featuring The Tripwires, the Fucking Eagles, and Hotels, and hosted by KEXP DJs Troy Nelson and Hannah Levin.
Can't sleep in the wee hours of Saturday morning? Ever come home from the bar sad and alone? You've probably tuned into Troy (below) doing his variety mix from 1-6 a.m. on Friday night.

At the helm of Audioasis every Saturday from 6-9 p.m., Hannah (below) spins Northwest-centric tunes and hosts amazing in-studio guests. Recently, that included students from the School of Rock. She's truly on the case when it comes to what makes Seattle's music scene so special.
