GIVE IT UP FOR ‘GIVE,’ A DOWNLOADABLE BENEFIT COMPILATION FEATURING AN ALL-STAR LINEUP OF SEATTLE BANDS

Seattle Times
There’s zero downside to “GIVE,” a downloadable benefit compilation of 30 genre-spanning songs by Seattle musicians. At $7, you’re paying less than a quarter per song. Every cent of that $7 goes toward local hunger relief and arts education. Each of the songs — most of them exclusive — is good. “GIVE” is the sort of big city/small pond collaboration that could only happen in Seattle. Every facet — music, engineering, graphic design, server space, organization, promotion, etc. — was donated. From the sponsors to the bands, “GIVE” demonstrates the Seattle music community is all things to all people, if the people are willing to dig a little. Bands include Fleet Foxes, the Moondoggies, Visqueen, the Saturday Knights, the Maldives, Grand Archives, Cave Singers, Gabriel Mintz, Arthur & Yu, Talbot Tagora, Hey Marseilles, Pearly Gate Music, Tea Cozies, Fatal Lucciauno, Fresh Espresso, Josh Morrison, Sera Cahoone, Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band. “GIVE” is available for download today, November 17th.

@BlueScholars
A few hours ago, Blue Scholars pulled up next to Caffe Vita in an SUV, popped the trunk, plugged a mic into a PA, and played three songs from their new OOF! EP (available today at Vita). While Geo rapped, Sabzi mingled with fans and snapped photos. The dudes will be playing these secret shows all day long, leading up to a CD release party tonight at Ohana in Belltown. Next stop is the 42nd & the Ave at 1:15pm. Check their twitter page for updates, and check out their new video courtesy of The Stranger!
