STREETS TO HOME BENEFIT SHOW
Nov 28, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 11:30 pm$15
Seattle’s homelessness population is the third largest in the country, with more than 12,000 people living without shelter. To shine a spotlight on this issue, four Nordstrom employees (and their respective bands) are joining together to host a night of great music to benefit Streets to Home, an initiative from United Way of King County that connects people to the resources they need to be housed again.
It costs an average of $1,000 to get someone off the streets and into stable housing for good. All ticket sales will be donated to Streets to Home to help make that dream a reality for individuals in Seattle.
Nordstrom is matching employee donations to Streets to Home. Collectively, they seek to get 250 people off the streets through their annual United Way giving campaign.
Seattle Power-pop rippers Stag combines catchy choruses and big guitars. Think Badfinger, The Who, Guided by Voices, Big Star.
“The second EP from this band comprised of longtime Seattle musicians is another well-crafted set of crunchy power reminiscent of The Who and Cheap Trick. All four songs are worth spinning, so dig in.”
— Don Yates, KEXP Music Director
Seattle’s Fotoform create alluring, ethereal post-punk / dream pop. Taking their name from a mid-century avant-garde photography movement, Fotoform recall the gauzy atmospheres and drive of the ‘80s UK underground with the immediacy of US indie and post-punk, coining the genre “pointy-shoegaze.”

Seattle indie-pop female group Kiing draw together intricate harmonies and hard-hitting choruses reminiscent of artists like Fleetwood Mac and Birdy. Smita and Jyoti Shukla—two sisters who grew up singing Indian classical music combined with Freyja Touchette’s mastery of songwriting and piano weave together a spiral of melodic pop-driven tunes with soulful sensuality.
