Each week, The Morning Show's DJ John Richards from KEXP 90.3 FM makes recommendations to help us sort through the many incredible options for live music in Seattle's music scene.
This is KEXP's list of the Music that Matters for the week of 7/25.
- WED 7/26 - Blonde Redhead - Neumos. The trio formed in New York City back in 1993, and have put out nine studio albums. Check out the title track from their new EP, 3 O'Clock.
- FRI 7/28 - George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic - The Neptune. George Clinton is a legend, and was the innovator behind some of the funkiest tunes of all time, and has been a major inspiration in hip hop as well. Here's P-Funk live back in 1976.
- SAT 7/29 - Thievery Corporation - Marymoor Park. This Washington DC based artist and DJ collective mixes dub, electronic, and world music influences into their sound. Here they are playing Amerimacka live at KEXP.
