Keep your Friday evenings free in August! Concerts at the Mural is back this summer for four free concerts featuring top artists from our region and beyond. Presented by KEXP & Seattle Center, Concerts at the Mural brings music to the Mural Amphitheatre stage for live concerts starting at 5:30 p.m. each Friday, August 2 – 23, at Seattle Center.
This marks the 12th year of the Concerts at the Mural series, offering four, free, all-ages shows to discover the best of the independent music scene. A partnership between Seattle Center and KEXP presents the series each year. Each show features local and up-and-coming artists alongside national and international acts.
The series kicks off with an all-Canadian showcase, headlined by Montreal-born Wolf Parade, with support from Vancouver’s DUMB and Jock Tears. The second week is headlined by noisy pop-rock act Cherry Glazerr, supported by locals Red Ribbon and Antonioni. On August 16th, headliner Weyes Blood will play the sun down with a set of ethereal psychedelic folk, with local bands Versing and Whitney Ballen supporting. To round out the series, Helado Negro will perform his blend of Latin music with electronic, jazz, psychedelic, and ambient styles, with support from PNW acts NAVVI and PSA.
