Northwest Folklife Festival!!!

Friday, June 24th, 2011

Every Memorial Day weekend is the annual Northwest Folklife Festival at the Seattle Center (built in 1962 for the World’s Fair Century 21 Exposition). Mass K artists participated in two diff shows. One was indoors, The Imaginary Fireside: K, and featured Karl Blau, Shana Cleveland & the Sandcastles and Calvin Johnson. The other show was Independent Thinking: K, with Angelo Spencer, Curious Mystery, Nucular Aminals and LAKE. It was a joyous occasion, both. I was so busy enjoying the music I plum forgot to take any photographs. However, I did manage to capture this excerpt from the street performance by Olympia’s Hail Seizures:

See you all next year!
