Kong Freak Out hi

The First Annual Freak Out Weekend will be a three day party in Seattle, WA on the weekend of August 7-9.

For all of the details as they develop, visit the First Annual Freak Out Weekend event page on Facebook.

FRIDAY NIGHT, AUGUST 7 will be a rockin’ backyard party hosted by Ted Cogswell and Tamar Lively in Seattle’s Northgate neighborhood. We’ll be firing up the grill, playing some great music, and enjoying some of Washington state’s finest beers and 100% legal recreational cannabis!  If you play guitar or any other acoustic instruments, bring them along for a jam session around the fire at sunset, led by James “Shoes” Walker.

On SATURDAY, AUGUST 8, the Freak caravan will be visiting Something Weird Video world headquarters for an evening of psychotronic cinema under the stars. Lisa Petrucci of SWV has generously offered up access to their vast library of 16mm films and her gorgeous backyard cinema for an evening  that will feature TWO amazing features – THE ASTROLOGER (1975) and THE PSYCHEDELIC PRIEST (1971). There will also be a selection of suitably freaky shorts and trailers as well as popcorn and other concessions.

And then on SUNDAY, AUGUST 8, we will convene at the north end’s greatest old-school dive bar, Darrell’s Tavern, for our big closing bash. We will be entertained by local surf/garage rock legends THE BOSS MARTIANS along with DJ HOWIE PYRO (INTOXICA RADIO/D-GENERATION) and DJ BROTHER JAMES (SINISTER SIX/BUG NASTIES/CAT BUTT).  There will be a cover charge of $7 for this event.

It’s going to be an amazing weekend, and hopefully the start of a great new Northwest tradition. Don’t miss out!!!
