Just announced, with one month (plus two days) to go – the West Seattle Summer Fest 2014 music lineup! Here’s the full news release:

Mid-July in The Junction can only mean one thing — it’s time to close the streets for a weekend-long celebration that puts all other Seattle neighborhood parties to shame. West Seattle Summer Fest is pleased to announce The Helio Sequence and The Moondoggies as the headlining musical performances for this year’s festival, taking place Friday, July 11 through Sunday, July 13 at the junction of California Avenue SW and SW Alaska Street.

Now in its 32nd year, the sidewalk-sale-turned-family-friendly-fest features a diverse musical lineup booked by Cellar Door Management (Shadowland’s Ben Jenkins and Troy Nelson from The Young Evils/KEXP).

In addition to The Helio Sequence and The Moondoggies, this year’s performers include local veterans Carrie Akre and Stag, hearth music combo Squirrel Butter, the mid-century instrumental pop of Rat City Brass, and hard-hitting rock and rollers Hobosexual, Dude York and the Spinning Whips, and the other-worldly synth sounds of Vox Mod.

  1. Well, that is hands down the most interesting music lineup I have seen for this festival in 13 years. I know musical taste is subjective, but this *is* the best. ;)

    Way to go everybody!

  8. Thanks, Dave – I started trying to find recent videos to enhance this and gave up relatively quickly – your approach, well, rocks. – TR

  9. Are the god awful Metal Bands going to be playing in front of the w.s.eagles again?Not sure if thats a different stage,or who puts it on..but it seems they have maybe 5 fans,and the 2000 other people in the area would prefer any other genre on Earth.

  13. TSZ is a great band name. Reminded me that flip-flops used to be known as zories. Maybe they still are, somewhere, a la “soda” vs. “pop” … TR
