Spite House Concerts started in 2013 as a venue for new music. Beloved by Seattle's improvisation communities, the series continues every Tuesday evening. Concert artists are selected by a rotating group of curators, local musicians devoted to finding Seattle's most interesting and unique new music.
The third set is open to improvisers. Audience members are welcome to bring voices and instruments. After the featured artist concert (10:30pm or later, depending) we form up spontaneous duos and small ensembles to create a set of impromptu music magic.
$20 Donation encouraged, not required. All donations are accepted with gratitude. We love supporting live, local musicians! Also welcome: donations of food & drink to complement what is always on hand in the kitchen.
