For the past seven years, Louie G's Pizzeria in Fife has opened its doors to young, up and coming bands, including New Day favorite Jason Kertson and the Immortals, who began playing shows when Jason could still be considered a tween. The venue has also lent its stage, parking lot and kitchen to host festivals to benefit non-profits Burned Children Recovery Foundation, and Operation Ward 57, as well as a number of impromptu fundraising concerts and spaghetti feeds to help people in need. This generosity stems from the giant heart of owner Louie Galarza. Now, many of the bands and people he's helped, are teaming up to return the favor.
Glenn Cannon from Windowpane and Christopher Haley from A Lien Nation stopped by the show today to preview an upcoming concert to celebrate Louie. Then Christopher and his wife Michelle, owner of Sacred Soul Tattoo, co-creators of the special show sat down with host Margaret Larson to talk about the upcoming show.
The Keeping the Dream Alive show to celebrate Louie G's takes place Saturday, August 23rd at Louie G's Pizzeria in Fife. The show begins at 5pm with a jam-packed lineup of bands from all over Western Washington.
