What has been happening since 2008 in Seattle is happening again this year. From our great mother of 2011 comes Expo ’89, a small festival hosted by boutique vintage-clothing reseller, Cairo.
The show spaces was shared with the Anne Bonney (a space that sold vintage wares and cool junk) when it was still around and when it went out of business, a clothing shop took it’s place called “Indian Summer.” Since last years Expo and a some alleged rowdiness that occurred during one particular set, I assume Indian Summer wasn’t into the idea this year or wasn’t asked. Last year when I spoke with the owner about Expo, she wasn’t stoked about someone being crow-surfed.
Last year at Expo ’88, Cairo released a compilation called Cold Jungle that showcases a small scope of Seattle musicians. This year they’re releasing another called Costal Sightings, which broadens its inclusion zone a bit but still retains some of the same musicians from the previous comp.
Off Tempo will be recording as much of Expo ’89 as we can this year. The audio will be broadcast on Hollow Earth Radio and available here to download and stream when mastering and whatnot is completed.
