FLAT EARTH SOCIETY DJ SESSION AT WEST 5: It’s a Monday night tradition – 9 pm at West 5, turntable time, described as: “Featuring a lineup of some luminous Seattle record junkies spinning the rarest and fairest vinyl from deep within their respective LP collections. Rare soul, garage, dirty-funk, J Pop, jazz and a smattering of world-stage psychedelia will be spinning at the popular lounge in the heart of West Seattle.” Tonight, it’s Chris Martin from Kinski and AMPBUZZ.
WEST SEATTLE COMMUNITY GARAGE SALE DAY COUNTDOWN: 12 days away – 9 am-3 pm Saturday, May 12th.
