West Seattle’s KEXP Hood-To-Hood victory party set for May 29th

The full announcement isn’t until next Tuesday, but KEXP is offering a sneak peek of the details locked in for the West Seattle’s Hood-To-Hood Challenge victory party – first one here since 2010. Every year, fundraising drive, KEXP offers the party as a prize to the neighborhood that yields the most money during its summer fundraising drive, and last time West Seattle came out on top – a narrow victory, 100 dollars or so, but a win it was, so KEXP is planning the big bash here for Friday, May 29th.

KEXP’s Jeff Vetting tells WSB that one block of California SW will be closed to motorized vehicles that day, between Alaska and Oregon. The fun will include KEXP DJs broadcasting live, including West Seattleite Kevin Cole in the afternoon. Live music is planned on a stage that’ll be set up at SW Alaska – the full lineup isn’t public yet, except for Australia’s Miami Horror, which will be here as part of its U.S. tour. Then 6-9 pm, more KEXP DJ action at venues around West Seattle, followed by band showcases around town starting at 9 pm. Full announcement during Kevin’s show on KEXP next Tuesday (2-6 pm) – the bands, the venues, the extras.

    I think KEXP’s Troy Nelson is a West Seattleite as well. At least he was in recent years? He host(ed) the Shadowland on Sunday night.

    Everybody worthy lives here. :P

    I am glad they are closing the streets and hope most of it is outside. It was a little crowded inside last time. More fun outside. Also: West Seattle rules. And so does Kevin Cole!

    I know for sure that at least 4 of the KEXP DJS live in west Seattle, we should be so lucky to share the same neighborhood and celebrate an excellent community supported radio station like no other! This should be a blast!

    2010 felt like a love fest and after going to the Ballard one the year after it felt lackluster. Return of the love fest!
