Sometimes it's all rumor. Sometimes it goes until 6 in the morning.
Sometimes there's a wicked DJ. Sometimes the power goes out like that
one time. Sometimes there's two bands set up! Sometimes the DJ is DJ Logic. Sometimes I can't even find this place people keep telling me
about - The Loft. Sometimes it doesn't even start until 2am! Sometimes
I don't even hear about it until it's too late -and I wish I did.
Sometimes I can't even believe what I'm seeing, let alone a part of,
it's such a crazy thing.
March 9th all of Seattle will have the opportunity to buy a window that
looks into The Loft.
I can always expect the best live dance music, whether it be funk, jazz,
house, disco, drum n' bass, reggae, whatever, but it will be dope, and it
will be live. I can expect the best Seattle musicians. I can expect
awesome up & coming bands from around the country. Most of all though,
I can expect the unexpected.
March 9th the Loft presents Excursion, our foray into your world, and
your foray into ours. The Loft, given that name because it was never
given any other, is Seattle's premiere underground sporadic late night
party place, attended by only friends of friends and by those who find it.
The Robert Walter jam was the sickest I've ever seen; it stands out the
most, maybe because it was one of the first ones I'd been to. Twice
I've seen DJ Logic rip it up with Das Rut. The Skerik, PK, and Kevin
Sawka jam made music LIKE I'VE NEVER HEARD BEFORE. One time the Wild Magnolias, in full length Indian headdresses, came out of the back
bedroom to do a crazy late night set Bumbershoot weekend!
March 9th the Loft presents Excursion, a celebration of the underground
-our underground- at Seattle's ISPY. Enter through the alleyway, flip
out a ten spot, and say hello to a familiar face, Jonny, but in this
case he will be known as Jon Haring, who will be showcasing his
photographs of live music, many of which were taken on very late nights
at our underground spot depicting our late night culture. Downstairs on
the dance floor, Das Rut, Seattle's best dance/improv band (the Loft's
house band), which features Reggie Watts, Davis Martin & Thaddeus
Turner of Maktub, plus PK & Dara Quinn of Rockin Teenage Combo, will lay
down their righteous uptempo soul, as well as have it's guest list
packed, as stellar guests are always invited to take part in the fever
(names like Brad's Shawn Smith, Chava Mirel, KDTU's CD Littlefield,
Samo's Steve Scalfati, and others). New York's Graham Haynes will be
performing with Siamese, Seattle's newest improv band (the Loft's other
house band), that is turning heads with it's drum n' bass skins star,
Kevin Sawka. Downtempo demons KOOKEN & HOOMEN are our out-of-town
guests, hailing from the city, San Francisco. Loft-inspired visuals,
lighting, and projections will warm the upper mezzanine and dance floor;
Tarek & DJ Diskyze will fill in the gaps. For five hours, We Will take
And for those in the know, the excursion doesn't have to stop there
though, of course. . .
