Friday Concerts in Seattle this Memorial Day Weekend
My Future Self – Single Release
Besides Folklife there are some album releases going on Friday too, so you should check them out! I mean folklife ends pretty early anyway, so maybe there’s a concert you can go to afterward. So make the most out of your Memorial Day weekend, and support some of these local bands!
My Future Self has undergone a personnel change over the last year and we wrote a bunch of new songs too! It has been a metamorphosis of sorts, thus the event is called Morpho, based on the Blue Morpho, one of nature’s most stunning butterflies.
