Spite House concerts started in 2013 as a venue for new music. Beloved by Seattle’s improvisation communities, the series continues. Each concert begins with a presentation by the Spite House house band, followed by a concert presentation. Concert artists are selected by a rotating panel of curators, local musicians devoted to finding Seattle’s most interesting and unique new music.
The third set is always open. Audience members are welcome to bring voices and other instruments. After the concert proper impromptu duos and small ensembles are formed to create a set of improvised magic.
No cover, donations warmly encouraged.
All night, in the kitchen: food, drink.
Spite House exists and persists ‘in spite of’ unceasing surrounding urban development. Check out this unique Seattle venue!
