Rolling Stone
Think American Idol, but replace the earnest pop star wannabes with multi-talented buskers. That is the premise of Rolling Stone‘s Street to Stage contest, which puts eight street musicians from across the country against one another for a chance to perform at the Rolling Stone Rock Room in Austin, TX during what the magazine calls “one of the biggest music festivals in the nation” (we think they mean SXSW). Among the eight talented performers chosen, Carly Calbero is representing for the Emerald City. Those who frequent Pike Place Market or any summer festival has probably heard Carly’s guitar skills and powerful voice wow passersby. She’s also competing against six other local street performers in Battle of the Buskers. Visit the Rolling Stone website to read about Carly, see some of her live performances, submit your own photos or videos of her, and (of course) vote.

Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs
Musicians of all ages and skill levels are encouraged to apply to be part of the first-ever Concerts at the Columns series. The performances are scheduled to take place every Friday throughout July and August at the corner of Pike Street and Boren Ave. Acoustic musicians are preferred, as there will be no power supply available for bands to perform. Buskers and other solo performers are ideal candidates. Don’t miss this chance to provide musical entertainment to Seattleites during the most beautiful time of the year.
