It is more than the comparable dimly lit landscapes, overcast skies and scarf-appropriate weather during the majority of the year that ties Seattle and Iceland together. Reykjavik, Iceland’s lush capital, will come to Seattle at the end of the month to merge with talented local musicians. What will be produced is far more than a concert; the foreign forces will leap over language barriers and bridge the two cultures through an explosive night this Friday, October 28 at Neumos. Top Icelandic musicians will join popular locals such as David Bazan, Tomo Nakayama of Grand Hallway, and Shelby Earl. Hlynur Gudjonsson, Consul and Iceland’s Trade Commissioner for North America enthusiastically said, “Last year was an amazing opportunity to experience what happens when two cities so steeped in music collide.” Reykjavik Calling is a collaboration between KEXP, City of Reykjavik, Icelandair, and Iceland Naturally.
