It’s Barsuk’s 15th birthday! And they’re throwing one hell of a quinceañera. Nada Surf kick off the celebration tonight by playing their phenomenal album Let Go. Over the next four nights, we’ll be treated to performances by the Long Winters (performing When I Pretend to Fall), Jesse Sykes & the Sweet Hereafter (performing Reckless Burning), Ra Ra Riot, David Bazan—deep breath—Chris Walla, Phantogram, Menomena, Say Hi, Rocky Votolato, the Prom, and so many more! Phew! And to further remind us that they’re the nicest label in town, the proceeds from all ticket sales will be donated to Gilda’s Club Seattle. You’re the best, Barsuk.
