Reykjavik Calling returns to Seattle for a third year of exciting performances by some of the best musicians and bands emerging from Seattle and Iceland. This event of cross cultural musical exploration has struck a chord with Seattleites. In previous years fans have filled the venue to capacity to catch performances from Iceland’s Mugison, Lay Low and Ólöf Arnalds as well as John Roderick, Rachel Flotard and Sean Nelson from Seattle.

This year the FREE show presented by KEXP 90.3 will feature performances by:

• Apparat Organ Quartet (Iceland)
• The Redwood Plan (Seattle)
• Sudden Weather Change (Iceland)
• Ásgeir Trausti (Iceland)

Fans can once again expect a truly unique night of music, with a new twist. In an effort to explore new ways for these two distinct cultures to collaborate, each headlining band has been paired with a notable author to write lyrics for a song to debut at Reykjavik Calling. Apparat Organ Quartet is collaborating with Seattle author Ryan Boudinot and The Redwood Plan is collaborating with Reykjavik-born poet and novelist Sjón. The cross-cultural creative process between the authors and the bands will undoubtedly result in exciting never-before-heard performances.
