Mo Wave the queer music/arts group who have put together a few awesome festivals over the last few years is also involved in helping curate a stage at the inaugural Upstream Music Festival happening this weekend in Seattle’s historic Pioneer Square neighborhood. Booker and herself a musician, Jodi Ecklund has put together a line-up of artists that include:
J GRGRY: J GRGRY is the culmination of lead singer Joe Gregory’s life long musical ambitions. Echoing with the Linn-drum-and-synthesizer songcraft of ’80s hitmakers like Peter Gabriel and Depeche Mode, their music is spun anew for the iPhone generation, infused equally with dark ambiance and hummable hooks. Featuring current and former members of The Drama, Dolour, Motopony, An Angle, Modest Mouse and more the band is riding high on stellar reviews of their debut EP, GOLD TEETH + GLASS EYES, as well as from breakout performances in Seattle, New York, and Los Angeles and a series of upcoming festival and tour dates.
Free People, Free Sex, Free Gender Identity, Free Food to those Who Need it, Free Music!
The venue where this stage is located is in the Galvanize Building at 111 South Jackson Street. You do need to buy a day pass to attend. Go HERE to snag one. A day pass for today (Friday, May 12, 2017 is $65 but does give you access to many artists on stages all over the festival.
