Last August, we decided to throw a little party in Seattle and it blossomed into a three day bash that we called the First Annual Freak Out Weekend. Well, the Summer time is here kiddies, and it’s time to do it again. The Second Annual Freak Out Weekend will take place from August 26-28 and we’ve got some great stuff lined up that you’re not gonna wanna miss!
On Friday the 26th, Lisa Petrucci of Something Weird Video will host an evening of movies under the stars at the top secret LFP Starlite Cinema. We’ll be watching Monster A Go-Go (1965) and Devil’s Angels (1967), along with a wild selection of hand picked trailers and shorts from the SWV vaults. This is a free, private event. Go to the Freak Out Weekend Facebook event page for more info.
On Saturday the 27th, we kick off two nights of live rock ‘n’ roll at Darrell’s Tavern in Shoreline, WA. First up, we’ve got three great garage punk groups from acrss the Pacific Northwest. From Portland, we have all-girl combo The Mean Reds, and the fabulous Sellwoods. Closing out the night will be Seattle’s most rockin’ simians, the Primate Five. This show starts at 8 PM, 21+, $10.
On Sunday the 28th, we’ve got a great closing night party lined up, featuring legendary guitarist Jerry Miller of Moby Grape fame, as well as Jim Basnight & the Mobettes, who will be performing a special one-time only set of 1960s and 70s Pacific Northwest nuggets. We’ll also have some surprise special guests and DJ Stevie Dee. This is an early show, starting at 6 PM, 21, $8.
