We’ll have another post for this weekend!

We look at a lot of shows, and hope to give a few cool/special shows some extra attention. Thiink record releases, tour kickoffs, or just some really cool shows we wanna mention! Of course there are so many other shows happening each week, so you’re way better off just downloading the showground app and exploring the local music scene yourself, but you’re here so that’s a start!! Alright anyway, let’s get to the shows!

Monday 5/13

Speak Easy and Moose Almighty are local Seattle bands with some great sound. Speak Easy has a Rasta Funk sound. Local reggae-funk band from Seattle? It’s as good as it sounds. Moose Almighty holds their own as well. Go hear them for yourselves! Those links have all the info you really need!

Well those are all the shows we think deserved a special shout-out this week, but there are so so many other shows happening. Be sure to check them out on the app. It’s really the best way to explore the local music scene here in Seattle! Super easy to discover cool new artists.

If you’re an artist don’t see your show on the app, send us an email at info@showground-app.com. Happy to make accounts for whoever. Copying and pasting in the app kinda sucks at the moment so trying to save you the hassle from that. Just trying our best to support local music. Also tell us how/why we suck… so we can suck less or you know… at least try to be better!

Stay tuned for shows happening this weekend! There are a bunch! Or just go check em out now on the showground app! We also post about shows happening each day on facebook and instagram, so feel free to follow us there too! @showgroundseattle
